Singleness comes with so much welcomed freedom! Freedom to go where you want; freedom to hang out with who you choose; freedom to sleep in; freedom to date; freedom to shop! That was one of my favorites! I could shop and not have to answer to anyone! Being single, fashionable and carefree is a great life and to be enjoyed to the fullest. Just flick on the TV and take a look at all fashionable single ladies wearing all the best labels so fabulously and you’ll see that life is good for a single lady. I mean, don’t they seem to have it all? The clothes, the men, the careers, the best friends and somehow they seem to balance life so well! You have girls like Carrie on Sex and the City to our current go to fashion girls on Gossip Girl or Real Housewives. I can get wrapped up in the characters I must admit as a way of ‘relaxing’ at the end of the day just to clear my brain of the ever-pressing to-do lists. It’s so easy to think if we act, dress or become like “so and so” then I’ll have those men, their career and that status. The truth is, everything we do does in fact dictate what we get, but the outcome is not at all like what we see on TV. If you really did walk out the door in a see-through shirt with coordinating bra underneath or cute runway dress that really fits like a shirt, the good – looking business man with the good intentions isn’t the one that’s going to ask you for a cup of coffee!
If you don’t already know it, you have a lot of power over the men around you through the way you dress. What are you using it for? Are you using it to try and get something or are you making sure your protecting someone’s future husband and your own dignity at the same time? The clothes you wear, even fashionable ones, may not be the best choice in proving you’re a lady and hopefully, your goal is to be a lady and one who is pursued vs. just a one night conquer!
Men by nature have engrained in them the need to hunt; to conquer. That’s why they talk about the winning team they bet on, the game they played and conquered, the hunt of a fish or deer they waiting on for hours on end until finally after a long day, they conquered. Men are conquerors and in this day and age, our need to be equal in every single area including conquering the dating game has taking the hunt out for men as we pursue them ourselves. Most importantly, the challenge has seemed to be non-existent when we let ourselves be on complete display by the way of our clothing! We can take away the mystery of ourselves by putting too much of ourselves on display.
Clothes tell a story, they say who we are and what we think about ourselves. We become walking art for all to view. What story do you want to tell about yourself? I encourage you this fall as you go out shopping for the latest trends and coolest fashions, think about what story you want to tell about yourself! Choose clothes that display who you were created to be both inside and out! Simply said, be fashionably single.
