Guys, fashion is so important in life. I wish everyone understood just how much it affects our lives. Even when you make the decision to not follow the trends or ‘not care’ about what you’re wearing, guess what, you are in fact making a big fashion decision and an impact on your life.

She may not say it in a nice or even appropriate way . . . but I think Miranda Priestley from The Devil Wears Prada (movie//book) says it best . . .

” You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don’t know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn’t it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.”

Fashion is a part of how we present ourselves, how we’re viewed (whether we like it or it’s fair, or not), it’s even part of our Reverence for God, and it most definitely affects our view of ourselves.  Wear something that doesn’t fit you right, and you’re not going to think highly of yourself. Take your hair out of a braid so it’s all wavy and voluminous then put on a sexy dress and you’re a vivacious lady read to take on the town . . . see above pictures for evidence.
