Empowerment By Way Of Wardrobe
BY Sally Lyndley
I am one of those people who feels completely off if I have on an outfit that I don’t like. I may or may not have OCD or some other mental disorder that has me totally uncomfortable if I don’t like the clothes I have on. It could be a suit for work, a dress for a date or sweatpants on my day off, if I feel like my look isn’t working, I head into a mood of self consciousness’s or lack of confidence. Maybe I am an extreme case, but the way I feel is greatly influenced by how I feel in my clothes. Because of this, I am extremely pick-y about what I buy. Obviously I am quite choosy when I am buying ready-to-wear clothes or shoes/bags that are $500 plus, but I am equally choosy at the vintage store, thrift store, H&M or Victoria’s Secret, even my workout clothes have a theme and inspiration to them (TOMB RAIDER!! YESS!!!).

"I originally started doing the crazy colors because I wanted to grow out my bleach blonde. I have been white blonde since 2006, and my hair was so damaged and broken. I realized the ultimate luxury was not having to go to the salon every month for my roots, as well as to have healthy hair. I decided that doing the pastel colors would make the roots/growing out process waaay less trashy and way more fun."
