Dressing Up

In my years of being in control of my own wardrobe, I’ve noticed that I seem to really enjoy dressing juuuust short of a costume. Regularly, Harry will turn to me just as we’re about to leave the house, or I’ll look in the mirror, and announce “today, you look like ______”. 

Some of the most popular culprits over the years have been/are:

  • ‘Cliche Parisian Cartoon’

  • ‘70s Brownies/Girl Guides Leader’

  • ’Tiny Charlie Chaplain”

  • ’Scandinavian Art Teacher’

  • ‘Heartbroken Edwardian Maiden’

  • ‘Wild West Frontierswoman’

I use illustration and photography as a form of self expression, and I guess my wardrobe is just an extension of that (apparently I can’t help myself) ! If I have a casual day, I feel rubbish and want to run home and change my outfit because I just don’t feel like myself. 

Is anyone else like this with their clothing choices??
