In the last few months I have learned a lot about how I dress myself. These are things that I have doing practically all my life, I just never noticed that I did. That is until it is pointed out. I thought it would be fun to share one of these instances today.
Remember Fashion is a Journey you are Forever on.
So let's take a little look down mine.
On afternoon the phone rings. It's one of our team members calling. She is curious if a particular coat buttons all the way up comfortably for a women with larger breasts. She informs me that the customer would like to purchase it for her daughter, but is unsure if she will be able to comfortably button it all the way to the top. Our team member remember that I owned one of the coats and decided to give me a call and find out my stance on the buttons. It was a simple question, "Can you comfortably button the coat up all the way"? My response was almost laughable, "Well, shit. I don't know. Let me give it a try". The question she asked was simple, one that I should have been able to answer without much thought. I however have truthfully never button the coat up all of the way. It then occurs to me that I never button or zip up any Fashion Coat that I have. Why would I button up my Fashion Coats? I know people do, and I know that the coat is designed for that. Yet If I need a coat that provides warmth, for instance when I go hiking and explore the mountains. I wear a different style of coat, like a coat specifically made for that activity. Within a simple 5 minute conversation I managed to learn quite a few astonishing things about myself and my Fashion choices.
The first is that even at my age. I still have those dorky OOHHH moments that everyone embarrassingly still has.
The second is that I never button up my fashion jackets, like ever. Even as a child I would never button or zip up a fashion coat. I want to show off My Style and Personal Flair. Which in turn means leaving my coat open. If I need a coat to provide warmth then I simply put on a completely different coat. Which ever way you choose to wear your coat is completely fine. I however had no contentious idea that I has separate categories of coats, i.e. - Fashion Coat, Mountain Coat, Rain Coat...etc..
Lastly I learned from this simple phone conversation that while my wardrobe is divided by seasons like most are. Mine is also subdivided into sections that pertain to certain activities. Such as hiking in the mountains, a day at the beach, Sunday Brunch, Friday night drinks, and so forth.
This phone conversation was really eye opening for me. When was the last time you realized something New or Old about yourself during a conversation with friends' or coworkers? It is truly crazy how our normal habits can be completely out of left field for some. Have you had any experiences like that?
