There is one single thing you get to keep with you from the time you are born until the time that you die: your own body. Every other thing, person, feeling or concept you encounter may leave, get thrown away, or be forgotten, lost, or replaced. Of course you might make it through your whole life with something or someone else besides your own self, but it’s never a guarantee and you’d be a fool to count on it. We are leaves on the wind, brushing against and floating away from one another in anonymous and unremarkable flurries, dancing in transient clouds across the careless surface of a shifting world.
So it goes– especially in fashion.
The cozy sweaters, badass boots, cute little moccasins, sparkly dresses, luxurious coats, gorgeous jewelry, cool accessories, and trim little sneakers that we drooled over and coveted when they were new are now being shown the door. Get out. Git.
Tomorrow we begin our massive post-holiday sale, brutally slashing prices on perfectly good, gorgeous apparel so we can have space to fill the shops with a new wave of stunning dresses and shoes. Out with the old and in with the new. Once more and with feeling.
So why not take advantage of this opportunity to clothe your body in beauty and with style? After all, you get to keep your body with you for your whole life. Deck it out, keep it warm, and treat it well.
