25 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up Every Day

25 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up Every Day
Photo Credits: 1, 2, 3, 4 A few weeks ago, a reader left a comment that made me think about the things we wear every day and why we wear them. She was asking for advice on what to do when people ask “why are YOU so dressed up?” As if wearing something cute that makes you feel good is a “strange” thing to do! That comment got me thinking about dressing up and what that means. Since when did it become an unusual thing to put effort into what you wear and have fun with fashion? I was immediately inspired to create this list. So why dress up? Because life’s too short to blend in. Because you’re only young once. Because fashion is a method of self expression. Because you never know who you’ll run into. Because it obviously annoys some people (like the guy who asks why YOU are so dressed up). Because you never know, there’s always a chance you could get snapped by The Sartorialist (or maybe the girls over at Street Spotted)! Because you deserve to look your best at all times. Because it’s fun!

10 days of character building wrap up Character Bio Sheets A bio sheet is a way of keeping track of a character’s physical description, traits and attributes.

“Oyster” Dress, Irere, spring/summer 2003 Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010)“Oyster” DressIrere, spring/summer 2003 Ivory silk organza, georgette, and chiffon Courtesy of Alexander McQueen Photograph © Sølve Sundsbø / Art + Commerce Andrew Bolton: One of the highlights in this gallery is a dress called the “Oyster” Dress, which is made up of hundreds and hundreds of layers of silk organza, almost like a mille-feuille pastry. And the collection told the story of a shipwreck at sea and the subsequent landfall in the Amazon, and it was peopled with pirates, conquistadors, and Amazonian Indians. And I think that what’s interesting about this particular dress is you see how McQueen evolved as a designer in terms of the fact that he was always well known as a tailor. With this particular dress, you see a much softer approach.

Reinterpreting Disney Princess Costumes Through a Historical Lens If you grew up watching Disney movies, then you can probably picture the evening gown that Cinderella wore to Prince Charming’s ball or what Jasmine was wearing when she took that magic carpet ride with Aladdin. What you probably never considered was whether or not these signature ensembles were historically accurate. LA-based illustrator Claire Hummel, an artist for Microsoft Game Studios Publishing, decided to do some research on the subject, and the resulting images, while not necessarily the stuff of childhood memories, provide an interesting glimpse into the history of fashion.
