We all have those bad moments, days, weeks, months … and God for bid years. Those times when pits fill your stomach, eyes well up with tears, fists want to go flying through walls and mascara ends up the fabric design on our pillows … one wonders what can help you pull yourself out of that emotional hole. Who knew the secret key was hanging in our closets.
We work hard to have a “look” and buy the things in life that make us happy (we all have done an emotionally charged shopping trip to make us smile for one reason or another.) Therapy is expensive, “mother’s little helpers” don’t always work, friends ears can get exhausted by listening to you continuously bitch about the same dead end situation … but your closet is always there with open arms.
Sometimes throwing on a ridiculously fierce pair of heels with some skinny jeans and a t-shirt while heading out to the grocery store is just the confidence boost that is needed. Sure, wearing stilettos while running errands may seem a little over the top, but if it makes you forget life’s problems and instead makes you focus on how fantastic you feel … it is worth it.
Life is all about taking risks … and when those risks bite you in the ass, run to the arms of your closet and let the things that make you shine, smile and become the most fabulous you swallow you whole. At the end of the day, I am a firm believer that if you never try you never know, and I also believe your most fabulous dress is better than the most gifted therapist in the world.
