Dress With Finesse

The World we live in is playground full of contrast to be experienced on every step of the way. Seeing things we do not like causes birth of thoughts, ideas and desires of what we actually want. Once desires become beliefs, their manifestation to one’s life experience is inevitable and if noticed by others with similar interest – it can attract them to practice it daily. We often say that those people have embraced some sort of lifestyle like in the case of Dressing Up.

“I always wondered – why some people dress up on regular basis? What makes them want to put all that thought day after day?”

It wasn’t until last year that I truly realized how Ritual of dressing up is one of the most fun and playful tools of getting my mood up to the speed of a day ahead. After my alarm goes off and I remind myself that new, evolved version of me is awake – I am ready to play with my wardrobe to match that thought process and continue enjoying it throughout the day. The final outfit always ends up being fun and inspired by this amusing experience.

“I am ready to play with my wardrobe to match that thought process and continue enjoying it throughout the day. “

Most of the time I start by choosing underwear/socks combination as I enjoy selecting among different prints and colors. Based on this I start lining up few of my accessories – bow tie and pocket square. Even though I know that no one really can see connection between these four items – it makes me happy being aware about my first harmonious creation of the day!

Next, I search for right jacket and pants, rarely in the same color as I enjoy pairing them up more then wearing suits. Choosing shirt comes easy by this time as there is not many options left in order to keep the on-going style. Picking shoes and belts takes seconds as I am very loyal to only few colors and designs.

As per finishing touch I enjoy putting on all of the accessories I use – bow tie, pocket square, watch, often few bracelets and, of course – sunglasses. Spritz of cologne and I feel I am ready to take on the day and keep myself in the feeling good zone!

“I know I have completed the first task of the day – spending deliberate appreciation time with myself.”

There is a great inspiration that always comes from my dressing up ritual. It is based on this game I created for myself, interesting self talk that often occurs while having fun and that moment of realization when I know I have completed the first task of the day – spending deliberate appreciation time with myself. After that I am ready to see even more beauty in everything and make my day full of smiles and good talks in various co-creative interactions!
