The Land of Misfit Toys
If you’re reading this post, you’re blessed; you have a computer, sight, and literacy. Creating my fashion blog has been a passionate outlet for me. I marvel to know that others read, watch, hate, and even connect with what I have to say. For my first Christmas post I wanted to create a cosmic wish list of overpriced items I could never afford, for all of us to wish and hope for, until I saw Glee.
Like most people, I have no time for appointment television, so I PVR everything. With my last exam behind me, I can now watch all the mindless things I missed, but Glee sang to my heart with their Christmas episode, to remember a time of misfit toys.
What Glee so adamantly describes each episode is what being on the fringe really feels like; each song characterizes an emotional connection to community and self-discovery. Thereby developing a soundtrack for life. This is what fashion means to me.
Fashion is a language that can be used to express oneself without utterance. You can be anyone with fashion. When hope has escaped and you feel perplexed by society, fashion will be your transformative voice. Learning to speak with fashion can be difficult because it challenges an unconsciousness that is hidden from vision. With each misfit outfit a journey to a perfect fit becomes complete. A misfit is something that is incorrect for your body and personality. A perfect fit is something that describes your personal outlook and persona without masking signature style. Don’t allow your clothes to wear you; your clothes need to reflect individuality. Always changing, evolving and reinventing—no, not Madonna—fashion will give you peace when naked and alone.
For me, fashion describes mood and projects my ideas each day: sad, happy, or scared fashion is my background lyrical savior. What is the point to my fashion ramble of Glee and literature metaphor is that Christmas (holiday) is a time of reflection, love, and understanding. My holiday fashion wish is that you discover something new about yourself and transform an article of clothing to an expressive feeling that you cannot verbalize without style and flare.
