Why Dress Up?
Why do we make the effort to look nice? Not everyone does. Some people just throw clothes on. Others, however, have a spark that ignites the desire to dress well. We care about the clothes we wear; we consider how best to present them, and we make endless choices to arrive at our peak appearance.
Why is that? What motivates us?
I'm sure the reasons are different for everyone. For me, there are three motivations. First, it's fun. I enjoy the creative exercise involved and view fashion as art. Second, I like sharing my creations with friends whose feedback helps me learn what worked and what didn't. Third, dressing up brings me closer to the female identity I have inside.
How about you? Why do you dress up?
