Something I really appreciate, is everyone’s unique sense of style,
Note I didn’t say fashion, I said style, though fashion can be a part of it,
I love people watching and am attracted to the way people carry themselves,
And style is part of that,
A hat that sits just so on one’s head,
A shade of lipstick that only works on that person,
Or a tie that is really different worn with a very conservative suit,
Or simply the way a person looks at another person,
I certainly have my own eclectic sense of style,
I know what works for my five foot ten inch frame of the abundant behind,
I love dresses, scarves, sweaters…mixing and mingling them to suit my temperament,
I remember years ago when I came to my office,
The idea that I word dresses 99 percent of the time did not appeal to the females in my office,
The first person asked, how many dresses I owned,
I answered, ‘A lot’…
A second one wanted to know why I wore dresses,
I answered, ‘Cause I like them…’
When the third asked, I knew it was time to nip this in the bud, so I said,
“Look, I love dresses, I buy dresses, I wear dresses and please tell everyone that I am going to continue to wear dresses…I have no say in what you wear, and would appreciate your quiet about my wear…”
That ended that,
Every now and then someone will comment on my attire,
But usually not, nowadays, I am simply Angelia, in her abundance of dresses!
However, a few weeks ago we got a new employee,
Immediately I thought, ‘She sure has her own sense of style…cool”
A nice bohemian, dressy, colorful style…
Well last week I noticed she had changed her look,
Curious I asked why and she told me that people were commenting about her making
them look bad by her being so dressy, etc.
I had to giggle, saying,
“Oh I heard that ten years ago…girl, do your thing!”
A couple days I noticed she was back to her own style…
The way I see it, is what makes us unique is our differences,
Be it ethnicity, religion or style,
And unless we are breaking dress codes or doing something inappropriate,
Who are we to define someone else’s sense of style?
That sure is taking on a lot…
LOVE PEACE AND UNIQUENESS!
