We've talked about personal style before and I appreciate that most of you gals have agreed that there's no issue with not having a self-defining look, that style is an evolving thing and we grow with it.
However, do you ever feel like the act of getting dressed each morning can be equated with putting on a costume to play a part? I find that what I choose to wear can help put me into a certain mindset. Like when I have an important meeting and need to feel take-charge, I don a suit and essentially become Corporate Lisa (with the Blackberry Thumb). Or for dinner out, I turn into Date Night Lisa with a demure smile and sparkling clutch.
Though this was fully unintended, I guess I was feeling secretive and bookish today with my vaguely Royal Tenenbaum-y outfit. I think I am just one cigarette, fur coat and sulky attitude away from full Margot immersion.
Do you have a character in mind when you get dressed sometimes? Does getting dressed in a certain way make you feel and act different?
