Okay, there's something I want to call out about fashion, and, sorry Tarra, but I'm going to use your question as an example.
Whenever someone says, "I dress up in expensive/fancy/nice clothes for myself, not other people" I am here to tell you that you are full of shit. There's nothing wrong with looking nice and loving fashion, but don't EVER lie to people and expect them to take your bullshit, and let me explain why you are full of shit.
Fashion isn't like exercise, if a person tells you "I don't exercise to look good for other people, I do it for myself." They could possibly be full of shit, but at least there is actual, VALID grounds to go on. You are stronger, faster, more EFFICIENT when you exercise.
Whereas when you put fancy clothes on, it's temporary. All your doing is dressing up the same thing, in a different way. If you were ACTUALLY dressing up for JUST yourself, and NO ONE else, you would be wearing those fancy clothes in the solitude of your home, where no one can see you.
Imagine if you were the last person on Earth, would you dress up in fancy, nice clothes, even though no one is there to see you? Probably not. Would you still exercise if it meant you could run faster, or be more efficient in survival? Most likely.
The ESSENCE of fashion is driven by other people's views and interpretation of it, that's fashion at it's core. DON'T hand me that "I dress up for myself" bullshit line.
There's nothing wrong with looking your best, but don't hand me bs lines.
Okay, I'm done. Sorry Tarra, most likely no one is gonna read this but I had to get t out of my system.
