Not so very long ago, reindeer sweaters were total taboo within the realm of fashion...
Despite that fact, I couldn't let go of my lovely, festive sweater! I continued to don this adored piece proudly--each holiday season. When folks referred to "ugly holiday sweater" parties, my beloved reindeer cardigan never would have factored into what I might wear there...
Then, a year or two ago, reindeer-adorned pieces were spotted prancing along the fashion runways... And, yes, you guessed it; reindeer clothing was once again in vogue.
So, does this mean, I was fashionable before my time (smile). No, it simply means I wear what I like--regardless of whether others do--or if it's "all the rage"...
You see, I think fashion principles (such as this) enable me to build self-assurance into all areas of my life. For example, if I'm not worried what others think about my wearing of a reindeer sweater (when it was unfashionable to do so); I'm less likely to stress over what anyone else might think about me--period. That's empowering stuff, yes?
