Now you see my focus on fashion and music wasn’t so far-fetched in my memoir Left of the Dial.
A book has indeed been written about authors and clothes. I’m now not the only one linking our sartorial bent to our creative success.
That is Joan Didion on the cover. She is the author of The Year of Magical Thinking, a best-selling memoir.
The ultimate truth about fashion and aptly individual style has been corroborated on the Visual Therapy website.
Co-founder Joe Lupo wrote there:
“We stand by the idea that style isn’t just about the clothes–it’s about the people in them. Using style and clothing to express the most authentic superstar version of yourself will give you the confidence you need to reach for your dreams and goals.”
Co-founder Jesse Garza reinforced:
“We always say that when image (the outer) and identity (the inner) are aligned, the result is clarity that will bring you places and help you reach your goals in all spheres of life.”
From firsthand experience I’ve seen that when you’re at odds with your clothing, it could be because you’re at odds with yourself.
Hiding behind your clothes is a way to hide you from yourself.
Finding the items that fit and flatter is like coming home to yourself.
Research non-traditional careers if you’re loathe to wear a suit and pumps to work.
I’m revising and editing my second non-fiction book.
I will return here in the coming weekend if I’m able.
