Oh, how I love this dress. Red is one of my favourite colours to wear, I think it is very complimentary on me. I remember a time not too long ago when someone commented on me wearing something red (could have been this dress, I don't remember), saying that it was a bold choice & I must not be afraid to be noticed. I found that really interesting because I had never thought of it that way. But it's true, in a sense. I don't shy away from bold colours and I would rather be noticed in my clothing choices than not. I think it's part of the reason I have a blog! But of course, this person didn't know any of that, they were just making an assessment of my personality based on my outfit. This is one of the great reasons I think people should care about what they wear. Of course, if you are reading this blog, you are probably already one of those people. But I know that there are a lot of people who think caring about what you look like, how you dress, hair, makeup, beauty etc just equals vanity. But it doesn't! That person's comment to me conveys just the opposite - we are judged, assessed and characterized but what we wear & how we present ourselves to the world.
What are your thoughts?
