IF YOU LOOK GOOD... DO YOU FEEL GOOD?
“Fashion is a movie. Every morning when you get dressed, you direct yourself.” - Thierry Mugler
"My mum always asks me why do I care so much about what I wear, and it’s like... how can you not?
Karl Lagerfeld once said: “Respectable appearance is sufficient to make people more interested in your soul.” What if what we wear is an expression of our soul?
I believe personal fashion holds more meaning and deeper significance to our inner well being. “If you look good you feel good!” This famous phrase, in my opinion just highlights self - connection, love, care, inner beauty, individuality.
It’s a great joy to take time for yourself, to connect to your inner being, through make up, hair styling and choosing what to wear. When I started living in the present moment, instead of past or future, everyday became a ‘special occasion’ day.
Why wait? Why not just live now, enjoying every moment? Why do you need anyone’s permission about when and what to wear to feel great about yourself?
Often people ask me when I’m out if I’m dressed for special occasion?
In a way, yes, my life is a special occasion. Every day is unique and beautiful, and it doesn’t matter if I’m going out to pick up my daughter from kindergarten, go for a walk on the beach, get groceries, or if I’m going out for dinner, it is all special.
I see every day as a gift, a celebration of life, full of beauty and magical moments. I think life becomes magical when you ‘look good and feel good’ every day!"
