For a long, long time, I used to despise shopping and any form of fashion. To be honest, I perceived worrying about your clothing as materialistic and shallow. I thought that clothing shouldn't matter because people should judge each other based on their insides, not their outsides. I liked calling myself a "t-shirt and jeans" girl.
I've realized just how stupid and probably hypocritical that all sounds. Yeah, some people really are shallow and materialistic when it comes to clothing--like buying some expensive designer shirt because everyone else is wearing it and you want to look cool. And yeah, I'm sure tons of people judge each other based on what the other is wearing; that's inevitable, anyway.
However, once I started thinking of clothing as a form of art and self-expression, all those thoughts disappeared. Now, shopping is actually fun for me. I've started thinking, whoa, I'm wearing art. And just because you want to look good for yourself on the outside doesn't mean your insides are shoved aside, y'know? So yeah, I've realized that shopping makes me happy because I can dress however the hell I want without labeling myself as shallow or materialistic. And I've found that I've become a ton more accepting of others when I'm happy and comfortable with myself, inside and out.
Lol, this has been a great epiphany for me, seriously.
So, do you like shopping for clothes? What's your opinion of people who take their time picking out outfits? Are you happy with the way you dress? And etc. etc.
