Turning a Negative into a Positive

Personal growth has dramatically changed the way I see life and view myself. This blog has been instrumental in helping me change my perspective on many things.

Fashion is so much more than the actual clothes, it is a way to build self confidence and express personality. Take this dip dyed skirt for instance. It signifies a great deal to me as I am an artist, a girly girl, lover of color, and fan of quirky.Anthropologie Levana Ombre Skirt with a LOFT Lace Tank, and Braided Belt from Target | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

The biggest thing I have learned over this past year is the laundry list of things I always viewed as negative about myself are actually attributes that I am proud of and are positive features.

Being a short-waisted, large armed, thick thighed, ultra pale, awkward nerd, I saw these things as something I needed to fix or cover up.  Ultimately, I was unconsciously comparing myself to what I considered “normal”.  Just as in the past I thought my freckles and widows peek were features I were ashamed of, I now show them off proudly.

I got this lovely raspberry and rust ombre skirt on clearance a little bit ago and I am ready to transition it right into fall. Today I am wearing it bear armed with a lace tank because of the heat wave still going through the West Coast.  I would have never done that a couple years ago.

Later I plan on topping off this look with a casual mixed media moto jacket in olive and gray. It gives it a fun and quirky vibe. Anthropologie Levana Ombre Skirt with a LOFT Lace Tank, Braided Belt from Target, and Knit Sleeve Moto Jacket from Target | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

I am turning these “negatives” into positives (which they have been all along, I just finally realized it) as every woman should. We are made beautifully and we need to honor our bodies and personalities by embracing those “different” features.
