Ever since I received this dress from eShakti back when there was still snow on the ground, I've been waiting for this moment. All I've wanted is to wear this dress without layers on a warm summer day as it deserved, which I did, multiple times. Yet, somehow I forgot to take pictures for the blog. Wearing my other eShakti dress recently reminded me that it had been a while since I've worn this dress on here as well. Not only that, but I had never been able to wear it in all its glory. I didn't really have anywhere special to wear it to, but why not?
There's something about yellow dresses that just make me feel happy. If I'm being completely honest, sometimes I get embarrassed to tell people that I'm a fashion major, especially at school. I've known what I wanted to do since I was 13 or 14, and I have no regrets about my major, but that little glint of judgement some people have in their eyes when tell them always gets to me. I understand why it seems like a shallow or vain industry to some people. I get why people assume that I'm just going to be picking out clothes (which is why I usually follow up my answer with an explanation of my journalism minor). And it makes sense to me that some people just don't "get" fashion. But the moment I put on a dress like this, I don't question it anymore. The idea that just putting on a piece of clothing will instantly make me happy makes it worth it. There's something wonderful about knowing that even if I'm having a bad day, I can put on a feminine dress and it'll give me the motivation to be positive or productive. Knowing that fashion has the power to change people moods, give them confidence, and give them an outlet of self-expression that they might not get other places is what makes me want to pursue it. It's cheesy, sure, but it's true. I'll take my happiness in dress form, please.
I can't say that anything particularly exciting is going on the moment; I'm just enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Of course, while this would mean the beach or general outside activities for most people, it really just means that I have more free time for Netflix. I finished Battlestar Galactica, which I absolutely loved, despite the very strange plot lines in the last season. I also binge-watched Orange is the New Black, which I loved. Netflix is killing it with the original series.
