Should we dress how we want to be addressed?

Sep 26, 2014 | Musings, Stories

 I have often heard and read this saying  ” Dress how you want to be addressed”.. I never really paid much attention to it, till today… Most times, I dress just the way my soul or body yearns to be clothe on that particular day.. Giving this more thought , I acknowledge this may be a bit of a tricky way to go about your daily pursuits..  Leaving it all at the mercy of our rather erratic emotions..

However, I feel like, if we are solidly in tune with our emotions and how we feel, and learn to interpret where we are at particular times, our fashion choices would ring even truer and we can stride into situations more assured and with more of a confident stance..

Well.. Some days we wake up and we are absolutely not in the mood to bother with fashion, heel teetering or making any sort of statement.. I believe when we are in this zone, we should listen to our inner selves.. and vice versa.

Yes, we have to dress to be addressed respectfully, and this can still be achieved by listening to our inner minds…  Take this look below for example.. This is my absolute easy fashion look.. Easy make-up, Flat Sandals and easy silhouettes..








If we in our heads keep constantly obsessing about how someone else feels about our outfits, we end up very confused..

I have come to some sort of impasse with this!

Always strive to look well put together..However, whatever choices you  make should be greatly dependent on your personality and who you truly are”..

Stay true to your inner chii!!

Have a fantastic weekend all..Stay blessed, happy and safe..

Please write in.. I would love to hear from you.

Yours sincerely,
