Let’s talk about our day today. Elizabeth and I were asked by Mrs. Hamilton to speak to her Textiles & Design Class at Flora High School. We were very honored to have been asked! It is always so good to get out of the daily grind and do something a bit out of the ordinary. And we love getting back to our roots...the classroom. Today we covered quite a few topics in our talk: the importance to looking “put together” each day, simple hygiene “musts”, basic dressing tips, dressing for yourself, modesty, and make-up.
Here's a very small excerpt:
As women we are taught from a young age to look cute, but not too cute. Be modest, but don’t look too frumpy. Look attractive, but don’t be too attractive. If you look “ok” women will like you because you aren’t a threat, but men won’t. If you look “hot” you’ll get attention from men, but the women will talk. It’s exhausting to keep up with all of the “rules” we are told. We learn to conform ourselves to how we want others to perceive us. It’s becomes a vicious cycle….a vicious cycle that needs broken. Today.
Ladies, we have to learn to dress for only one person….ourselves. Do not dress a way because you want other women to think you have it all together or because you want to draw the attention of other men. Dress for what makes you happy on the inside. Dress for your body type. Dress for your personal style. Be original. Not a carbon copy. Ultimately focus on your attitude, how you treat others, how you come across to others, etc and everything else will fall into place. I promise.
Demonstrating to the class how easy it is to get out of the rut of jeans and t shirts with a few simple basics. AND...how to take a basic outfit and style it a lot of different ways. We took our Elizabeth Jean, Basic Tee and Bailey Boot and made simple changes and created 5 different outfits.
