PROMPT: The Clothes (May) Make the (Wo)man

Daily Prompt: The Clothes (May) Make the (Wo)man

How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.

 

Funny thing: my first instinct was to admit that I am no fashionista, that clothes have never been my “thing”.

However, then it hit me … I may not put so much importance on the newest fashions, I still like to have my own style. Furthermore, it has really bothered me the last several years that I have been overweight, that I’m not able to wear what I like.

I love jeans. I love my cowgirls boots. I love fun, flirty, sexy tops. I love leggings. I love sweet, simple sundresses.

But I don’t have the figure now for any of those styles to look good on me. They don’t hang right. The calf of the boot isn’t large enough. The tops look too revealing since I actually have boobs now.

I use to feel just fun and happy and sunny wherever I went. So, maybe it took this to realize that what one wears and how they wear it does, in fact, have a relevance on how one feels in general.

I want my body back. I want my fun clothes back. Most importantly, I want them both back so I can go back to not thinking about clothes and fashion.

You know what I mean?!
