Pattern: Ginger Skirt
Fabric: by Lisette
I have never been one to follow brand names. I don't associate with a particular designer or gain any confidence from draping a label over my body and casually showing everyone the tag with mock surprise while regurgitating "Oh yes, it's a so and so". I realise this attitude may not win me any favors in the fashion world, but so be it.
I have an interview this week and along with the preparation one does for an occasion such as this, obviously comes the question "what shall I wear?". It's no myth that people give us the once over and a first impression in part comes from the clothes we decide to wear and the vibe we give off with our body language. I feel like I have the second part under control but really, what do I want to say with about myself before I have the chance to open my mouth... Reliable, happy, helpful and friendly. So what do I wear that gives me the confidence to feel all these things?
I may have over thought this. But my point is that confidence can stem simply from completing a project. Showing myself, and I guess others, that I can take ideas and manifest them. Create ideas into something that I put on to represent myself before I open my mouth to tell people who I am.
