CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – We often leave getting dressed and getting ready as an afterthought. We may find it to be the least enjoyable thing for us to do or we may find getting dressed is just worrisome. Terry Standish our Visual Intuitive Guide with Eyeforfashionct.com gave us tips to feel more comfortable in the skin we are in, by helping us to set the mood this holiday season, from the inside out.
- Making it more fun: Begins with a mind set and seeing it as less of a chore and more of an adventure. We can create more fun and perhaps even add in a bit more meaning into our holiday. It’s up to you how you want to see fun.
- Match your ideas to Match your family and their personality: The same way we decorate our house to match who we are we ca that with our clothing. Are you a low keyed family or a wild colorful bunch? Your holiday dress can capture and match you or your family as well. We deck out and celebrate the table, the hearth, the gifts. We have many traditions around that. What about how we dress???? How do you want to show up for the holiday….? That has gotten lost over the years.
- Think outside the box: When we know what we will wear ahead of time it saves us time. Just like our house has been decorated and thought out. You may have your favorite dishes and decorations. The timing and an order of how you do them is all part of it. By adding a plan to your dress or for the group dress you become more of the celebration. Make it a group choice like the ugly sweater holiday or you can make it as simple as choosing a themed color for the holiday, or you can get more involved by recapturing old photos from the 60, 70, 80, 90’s time frame to name a few. You can go into this with as much or as little detailed as you want, like your house. Just note it t should be fun for all who want to take part in it. Even if it is just you as the host or even guest who does this each year.
- Make the holidays more memorable: This is great opportunity for photos, trigger memories and make new ones. This would also help you recapture memories from back then and share them with those who are too young to have experienced them. After all that is what the holidays are really all about.
