Boo to You!
The month of October has always been my favorite month of the year. This year I will not allow the world’s current situation to change that. No one can cancel “fun” and there will not be a phase or a restriction that will forbid you from costuming. I strongly encourage you to dress up, scare the heck out of some folks, and over dose on mini-reeses.
My obsession with fashion stems from my excitement and anticipation for costuming at Halloween. As children, my brother and I would have our decision made on our Halloween outfit by October 1st to allow my mother ample time to make our costumes. Our costumes were never store bought and they were amazing down to the last detail. We also never “repeated” a costume, it could be tweaked into something else, but never worn exactly the same twice. The same can be said on how to style an outfit, always switch up the shoes or accessories, never duplicate the ensemble exactly.
Costumes allow you to transform yourself into the wicked, heroic or divine. The same can be said about your clothing every time you get dressed. What we wear subliminally states who we are and how we feel. Sometimes we reach for an all black outfit because it is safe and easy or perhaps a bold bright jacket because we want to command attention. Clothing empowers and transforms us; we stand taller in a well -tailored suit and certain shoes can make us feel sexier or want to kick some booty.
As a stylist and image consultant, I assist in bringing out your inner super hero.
