Dress: Emanuel Ungaro Vintage
“Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream”
We use clothes to improve or cover up how we feel. Research has shown that to people, clothes are also attached to emotions. Lead researcher Doctor Alastair Tombs says, “We demand many things from clothing. Quite a few people talked about using clothes to change their mood. If they get up and aren’t feeling great, they would put on something that would brighten them up.” When we look good, we feel good, work better and obtain better results.
There are moments where we feel we could take over the world (not in a crazy psychiatric way but in a Queen Elsa way). When I wore the dress by Emanuel Ungaro Vintage I felt like a princess. During that time, my flaws were forgotten and I walked with pure confidence, although: heels + a long dress + stairs = a hard challenge. Gosh, did that dress make me feel good. I never wanted to take it off, and you too should have a dress that makes you feel that way. “I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.” -Yves Saint Laurent. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Whether if it’s your favorite shirt or your new heels, put them on and fell the rush of power coming to you. My advise for you (inspired from Taylor Swift’s new song), it’s okay to be a nightmare at times, just make sure to dress like a daydream.
How to make your wardrobe a feel-good, daydream zone:
– Get rid of the piece of clothing that reminds you of something you don’t want to be reminded of when you wake up in the morning and look into your closet.
– Keep old clothes if they remind you of good memories. “It is like looking at a photograph and having those memories rush back,” said Doctor Tombs.
– Have clothes that allow you to dress for success. Image consultant Julie Zanes said, “When you dress like a dag you feel like a dag and you don’t perform as well. What you wear affects your self-esteem.”
– Have clothes that make you feel exceptional
