Do your clothes make you happy? Is that even a question you’d ask yourself?! #firstworldproblems?
Perhaps it’s a thought that’s crossed my mind because I’ve worked in the fashion industry now for 13 years (yikes!) and I love what I do. Ergo, I have items of clothing that make me happy. I love the colour, or texture and history of the garment if it’s vintage, or perhaps it’s how it makes me feel when I’m wearing it.
I wrote five years ago about the dress I dreamt about as a child and I loved hearing your comments about how clothing made you feel and reminisce. But rather than talking about memory, I’ve been thinking lately about the joy I feel wearing this skirt, sort of like my coin bracelets and how they jangle. Mother Melbourne says she knows when I’m nearby because she can hear my jewellery chiming and while that might drive some people nuts, I just love it. It actually makes me happy. Simple things right?
