All Dressed Up

Since when did it become an unusual thing to put effort into what you wear and have fun with fashion? 
Since when is anyone not wearing sweatpants and a hoodie breaking unwritten social rules? 

Why should “dressing up” be reserved for special occasions only?

I was inspired to create this list on "Why should we dress up?". 
 I firmly believe in “dressing up” every day of our life, 
and I think you should too!

Here are some Good Reasons on "Why should we dress up"

 * Because life’s too short to blend in. Don’t settle for average.

* Because you’re only young once. You’re way more gorgeous than you know & have a fabulous body you’ll one day look back on and wish you had! Take advantage now and show off how fabulous you can be.
* Because fashion is a method of self expression. What are you trying to say?

Because you never know who you’ll run into. A celebrity maybe?Hey, stranger things have happened.

* Because it obviously annoys some people (like the guy who asks why YOU are so dressed up). The fact that it annoys them so much is all the more reason to keep doing it.

 * Because you never know, there’s always a chance you could get snapped by The Sartorialist (or maybe the girls over at Street Spotted)! 

* Because you deserve to look your best at all times.

* Because you’ll never improve your sense of style if your default look is “I give up”. 

Because cute clothes and accessories are a great conversation starter. Wear something fabulous and people will ask you where you got it.

* Because parties aren’t the only time to celebrate.
* Because that fabulous party dress in your closet cost too much to only be worn once. 

* Because someday when you have a 9-5 corporate job and are required to wear business suits, you’re going to miss the freedom of dress you had. Experiment now! There’s no better time.
* Because glamour isn’t only reserved for the rich and famous, even though maybe they’d like you to believe it is.

* Because even if you live in an “unstylish” city & are scared to dress up, cities don’t become stylish without someone going first. I know it sounds cheesy, but be the change you want to see in the world. Everyone else can follow your fabulous lead.

* Because dressing up helps you make fashion mistakes and get past them. Mistakes happen to everyone and that’s how you learn what not to do – get them out of the way now!
Because it’s a test of your confidence. Dressing unconventionally forces you to develop the self-assurance necessary to stand out from everyone else.

* Because fashion is one of the rare instances where art comes alive. What artistic statement do you want to make?
* Because if you’ve got it (great style, killer confidence, amazing legs), it’s just wrong not to flaunt it.

Because "Dressing up" is fun!

Because if conspiracy theorists are to be believed, the world might end on 12/31/2012 that's only 292 days from now! Even though we all worried about Y2K too, why not be on the safe side? Don’t spend the theoretical 292 days you have left in sweats.

Dress: Korean Shop
Belt: SM Accessories
Necklace: Bazaar Finds
Wedge: Lovely Shoes

* Because dressing well means you don’t have to do your hair at all – you’ll have that ultra fabulous, slightly disheveled Kate Moss look.
* Because nothing beats the rush you feel when you look in the mirror and LOVE what you see.
* Because you want to. That’s the only reason that matters.


Why do YOU dress up?

What do you think? Do you make an effort to dress up every day? What inspires you to put effort into your look?
I think it's really COOL when we Dress up, right? So why be AFRAID? Afterall, 

Dressing is a way of life.
