So this is part 2 to the styling experience.
Megan, the stylist, took me on a “shopping experience”.
No need to buy anything, just experience shopping in a different way.
And as we started, she told me about “hangovers from the past”.
Maybe your mum never liked you in sleeveless.
Maybe in the 80s brown skin wasn’t cool, so you needed to cover it up.
Maybe that picture of you jumping with spaghetti straps and a white tee wasn’t so flattering.
Maybe platforms are so 90s.
Maybe long necklaces rested between your boobs funny.
Maybe your husband didn’t like “blooming” skirts that gave you the hips you don’t have.
Maybe the idea was to look slimmer, so everything (or most things), had to be fitted to avoid the “tent” look.
All visual, fashion hangovers of the past.
Things people said.
Magazine articles you read.
Pinterest advice you pinned.
They stop you.
In the change room.
And in life.
In your tracks.
You’re stuck in time.
