The Second Skin; ‘What clothes reveal about us’

Last night the three girls in the house; mum, my sister and I had a great conversation on a matter that all women think about every day; CLOTHES! This time it wasn’t about new items we had bought or the beautiful dress we had seen at the boutique, which we would like if someone heard and bought for Christmas. Although I have tried that too!

This time it was about; 'what clothes reveal about our personality'. We did a bit of analyzing on how WE dress, and what WE are saying by the way we dress. My sister who is one of the most beautiful girls on the face of the earth said; you don’t need to show your whole body to the world in order to appear sexy. Mum totally agreed ;) I too think you can be covered, but still shine sexiness and beauty. I love going shopping with my sister, she is the most honest person to go shopping with, sometimes I wish she wasn’t so that I would ignore how some clothes truly looks on me and just wear them. Women often bring someone shopping with them who would agree on what ever they wear. Next time you go shopping bring someone honest with you, who actually does care about what you reveal to the world around you!

I think we should care about what we wear and think of what our clothes say about us. Clothes do matter to all of us, and we all make judgments – about ourselves as well as others depending on them. What we wont wear says as much as what we will. We all dress to make an impression, to fit in, to be ‘appropriate’, to be noticed or invisible. Whether we realize it or not, our clothes signal something important. It is the message we are giving out! How we dress is an invitation to the world to think of us in a certain way, it will tell a story of power, belief, confidence, even subversion.

Earlier on the day we had a similar conversation with dad; about make up. Dad doesn’t like a lot of make-up. He thinks the natural look with the beauty that girls reveal from inside will make the girl beautiful and attractive. I think most men would agree. When you don’t wear make-up people can see instantly whether you’re happy, sad and tired because all these things are writ on your skin. Being barefaced will force us to be more healthy and happy because if we don’t get enough sleep, or we are upset we will just look terrible. I wish women of all age would realize that attraction comes from revealing the true YOU and the self esteem that comes from within.

Clothes can create positive or negative energy. Both within ourselves and the energy we give to the world. It’s important to wear your clothes and not let your clothes wear you.

what is amazing about women and clothing is as mather a fact, women wear cloths not only for themselves but also for messaging, noticing to other women as well..but the men mostly wear fancy cloths for impressing women and not for messaging other men.
when we go to cars for men, its a bit difference, cars are for messaging women and also messaging to other men.
So take with you a girl with fine taste when buying a car or cloths :)

By D way i am agree with your dad about make up :)

Thanks Ramin for his fabulous remark.

It's a fact that UNCONSCIOUSLY women are tending to attentions on their Physical Appearance and men on their Wealth Identity.

Awful thing is that one has the least or most appearance perception at the time of scale

By the way, where is the Morality and Manner!!!??......LOL

Elham, my last comment for this topic is correct.

Ramin said...

well written by Wikimouse.

wealth identity of men give them chance to capture beutiful women which they love to capture maybe cuz most men see them as potential mother to their child.
And Physical appeariance of women, give them chance to capture wealthy men which THEY see as a safe option for build a famly !

The buttom line:
most men choose physical attraction than wealthy when it goes to women...but the women may choose just opposite.
This looks like as delicate formel :)

By D way Elham jan, what`s your opinion ?

Elham Binai said...

I have written what I think :)
I believe we all need to be aware of what sort of signal we are sending to the world, but then people also have their own ways of interpreting and judging people. what ever we do,say,behave,dress will reveal some soft of who we are as a person.

Respect is the ultimate matter - how ever people are I do think we must respect each other and just love each other for who we are!

Elham, I was actually looking for ur opinion about what i wrote , the differences between men and women when it comes to chose based on wealth or physical appearance :)
