FEELING LIKE MYSELF AGAIN (slowly) & a damn good Maxi Dress
And what would be the easiest way to get back into the blogging routine than with what I started 10 years ago, talking about how fashion should make you feel good.
THE FEELGOOD MAXI DRESS
However, my view on fashion couldn’t have changed more in the past few years. Depression destroyed my self-worth until there was nothing left – even the simplest tasks are slowed down by my self-doubts. Getting dressed wasn’t an exception, as simple as it may sound. All I wanted to do is hide – disappear. Something that isn’t my actual style at all.
I’ll be honest with you, it’s still a difficult subject. Getting ready for photos or even standing in front of the camera – a sore spot where I unfortunately always realize how little self-love I have left for myself. It may sound harsh, but it’s probably one of the worst symptoms of my depression, I’m my own worst enemy.
But I’m working on it. So I try to escape my depression uniform at least 1-2 times a month. And you know what, it’s starting to feel good again. Playing with clothes that make me feel good. In which I even feel a little bit self-confident again. Even though I’m a believer that you should feel good from the inside first. We all have to admit, a good outfit simply has this feelgood effect. And good has a very individual meaning here. For me it was a light knit maxi dress, quality accessories & Vintage details – I felt safe in it. Not in the sense of hiding, but more that I just felt a little bit like myself again.
