Wonder Woman Socks
Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, those ARE Wonder Woman socks with attached capes. And yes, I am aware of what the snobby people on What Not to Wear would say about them. However, I don't care.
Because when I walked into a store that had Superman, Wonder Woman, and Robin socks with attached capes, I was so happy merely to know such socks existed. I'm not even a crazy sock type of girl. The vast majority of my socks are black ankle socks. I couldn't have predicted that I would love these crazy socks so much, but I look at my Wonder Woman-clothed calves and I feel like dancing, because these socks are genius.
Every once in a while, we run into that perfect article of clothing that one that seems made just for us! My green pants, green dress, red high heels, pink Converse; those are what do it for me.
Neither fashion trends nor practicality dictate my wardrobe. I buy clothes when just the very thought of them makes me smile--when I fall head over heels in love with them. I can't always predict what I'll fall in love with. There have to be a few practical considerations. I don't make a habit of walking into stores outside my budget because I don't want the heartbreak of falling in love with something I can't have. I often leave a store at least once after falling in love, to test myself and see if the relationship I have with that piece of clothing is true love or merely a passing fancy. I don't actually shop very often. Sometimes my choices may make my loved ones scratch their heads--but I have a wardrobe full of clothes that make smile, so I figure I'm doing something right!
Do you know what I'm talking about? Do you have at least one thing in your wardrobe that's guaranteed to make you smile--whether or not it's on-trend or appropriate for the current situation? If you don't, the question is why not?
