Thank you for this, OP. I started wearing what made me happy each day, I blossomed in many ways I never thought were imaginable. I never approach it as how I am going to show up in the world. I don’t care about the world. It’s just what makes me happy.
I think our clothing decisions say a lot about who we are, kind of like visually representing ourselves on the outside. It’s a shame that we can’t always wear what we want and I think society has a lot to do with it.
