A Stitch in Time


Visitors: 288

As any junior high school student can tell you, your fashion is very important when it comes to what others think of you. Now maybe that isn't the way it should be, but the idea that, “the clothes make the man, " (or woman, in our case) is simply, quite often, the truth. So what are we to do? Clothing, and how we wear it, is a chance to capture every moment and turn it into a celebration of life and fashion. It is our opportunity to invite attention and make a mark on people's memories. And it is our chance to leave a lasting impression on everyone from the President of our firm to the lady who lives down the block.

While we all know those people who live in black from Monday to Sunday, we definitely remember the woman in the sequined blue shoes, or the guy who pick us up for a first date in a pink dress shirt! Surely the best example of clothing being a very important part of the equation is the billion-dollar wedding industry. Probably nothing is more important than the bridal gown. (Well, except for the happy couple, of course!) Not to mention the bridesmaids’ gowns and the flower girl's dress. Even the tuxes become a crash course in men's fashion.

And surely there are other life events we celebrate with clothing: our prom, first dates, job interviews, and New Year's Eve parties. How often have you looked back at old pictures, and the first thing we notice is the styles of the day - Uncle Sal's mint green leisure suit from the ‘70's or your own cowboy boots and gauchos from 1985. Clothing marks more than generations and styles, it marks our lives and special times.

So why don't we mark everyday occasions with the same planning and joy? And how do we create that atmosphere of “special" times? How do we sew those moments into the fabric of our lives? Why not mark every occasion - even a Saturday matinee with a new pair of shoes or even a second-hand scarf. Why not mark our everyday life with as many precious moments and mint green leisure suites whenever possible?

Take a daring plus size fashion risk and tie up your holiday memories of ‘08 with bright silk ribbons and blue checkered socks. Make this a day to look back on and remember!
