I recently read about a woman who created her own line of clothing she characterizes as “beautiful clothes for every day.” She states,
“Some of my favorite dresses are those that truly look as if you just rolled in off the farm. I love mixing ….layer cotton dresses with silky slips, tough denim, textured stockings, stripes, dots, florals. It can all work gracefully together.”
She launched a line of unique clothing inspired from the 1930’s and 40’s farm dresses. I would personally put some more layers on some of her outfits for the sake of modesty, but I love the idea of unique feminine dress, beautiful fabrics and creative layering of vintage styles that are not tied to an ever changing style. The creative idea of expressing femininity and personal creativity is intriguing to me.
I find something very freeing in not caring about today’s high maintenance fashion industry. After all, we only have one life to live and why waste that time following a fashion empire and their agenda? I have come to the conviction, that clothing is to be first a reflection of distinct femininity and modesty as well as your own creative expression without caring about what the world thinks.
