More or less we all would like to be someone else, so we all look for a transformative experience. Fashion is amazing at achieving such experience, allowing us to be a different self every day. Fashion gives the chance to change without being liars, simply expressing the different sides of our personality.

I got a feeling I just can’t shake
I got a feeling that just won’t go away
You’ve got it, just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

(“Push The Sky Away” Nick Cave)

PUSH THE SKY AWAY

The very first time someone told me “I can’t wait to see the way you get dressed every day because you look different every day” I firstly felt flattered, but after I started to think about that. I had in fact always thought that my fashion choices were quite similar (I love dresses, feminine silhouettes, simple cuts, I go for blacks, solid colors and I love bold necklaces) but since then I was forced to re-think of the way I use my clothes. And I started to realize that people were actually right. In spite of my taste being quite consistent – generally speaking – the fashion decisions of my everyday outfits are quite different.

I don’t know if that means having or not having a proper style, (is that so important, after all?); mostly it is like having a lot of freedom to me.

And if your friends think that you should do it different
And if they think that you should do it the same
You’ve got it, just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

It sounds exactly like when you do not know something, so that is like an uncharted territory and you feel somehow obliged to find reasonable meanings in that. It is exactly like when you are reading the very first pages of a brand new book: you feel like you are a different person, because as long as you are embracing a new point of view on things, you are gaining freedom. (Does that make any sense?)

And some people say it’s just rock ‘n’ roll
But it gets you right down to your soul
You’ve got it, just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

This is by far my favorite outfit. I was not sure about the trousers at the beginning; I bought them because my sister insisted. In short, she told me they were flattering, while I was sure they were not. But, again, you have to relax and think and reflect on things – like with the books.
