Unfortunately, I am not in a position to dress in outlandish costumes every day of my life - or perhaps I just don't have the balls! - But by way of compromise, I find great pleasure in infusing my everyday outfits with elements of characters, objects, people, or themes that inspire me. So I'm not dressing AS a particular thing, but I've put my outfit together with that thing in mind. It makes me feel powerful to have a secret to my outfit that nobody knows, and I also feel like I can take on the power of whatever I'm dressing as! It's a favourable arrangement.
Skirt: TopShop (last year)
Necklace: Tatty Devine
I challenge you to dress yourself with something particular in mind. Pick a theme and then look through your clothes to find something to suit it. The other day, my friend Tilly challenged me to dress as an aeroplane (because aeroplanes are my favourite!). I dressed with the textures and materials of an aeroplane cabin interior in mind - grey textured jumper, navy blue tights, a red plastic necklace. Nobody would know I had dressed as an aeroplane by looking at me, but I knew and that was awesome!
