Skorch F INTERVIEW E AT U R E People who discredit the power of a good outfit don’t know what they are missing Honestly, as I was slipping under the satin lining and adjusting the five tulle layers I was thinking “why did I choose this?” Then I looked in my closet’s full length mirror and immediately smiled. Even with my hair unbrushed in a messy pony tail, glasses, no make up, and a college hoodie, the tulle skirt was enough to make my heart smile. People who discredit the power of a good outfit don’t know what they are missing. Wanting to appear presentable, cute, or beautiful isn’t necessarily shallow. When you dress for yourself, the outfits you put together become an extension of your personality. A ballroom grey tulle skirt may not be “me,” but it makes me happy to see it trail behind me as I walk. That is how you start building, growing and changing your style. Because style is just that, always shifting. This is why stepping out of your comfort zone is beneficial to your personal growth. It helps you discover what you like and how you like it. Skorch
