I recently voted on a poll, asking "Does your clothing style reflect who you are?". With the options being a Negative, a wishy-washy maybe, and a definitely, I placed my vote in the "for sure" column. While style is ever changing, and will always be a work in progress, I feel that what I wear is a definite reflection of who I am as a person. Being in my own skin, and my own clothes, should be refreshing, and show the world who I am, in a snap shot. The silence of style screams volumes at the world. For me, I believe this idea should hold true both in the casual day-to-day setting, as well as in the workplace. I feel that despite a company's relaxed atmosphere or flexible dress code, associates should dress as they want themselves, and the establishment they work at, to be represented.
Dressing up doesn't have to cost a lot. With this being said, I shelled out a whopping $25 buckaroos for everything I wore today! The most expensive being my boots, which I've worn sooooo many times, I hardly think they count as an expense!
