You must go boldly into this world--remember that.
You have long since outgrown your need to dress in muted colors, in perfectly matched ensembles of various hues of nude or gray or that one non-color so popular among the faint of heart. No. You no longer feel the need to fade into your surroundings--that was another lifetime, one you gladly shed in favor of your peacock feathers, bright a sin, strong as steel.
For you, the real you, your wardrobe is a work of art. Each day you prepare your outfit as a painter would her canvas, tenderly, one brushstroke at a time. Or as a gardener determining which flowers to plant in an open plot of dirt, only to decide it must be a small grove of wildflowers in all colors, all types, the seeds tossed about with abandon. Your outfit is a living, breathing piece of art made up of layers of bright colors and loud jewelry and unapologetic joie de vivre.
You must go boldly into this world without fail. Your mustard heels and turquoise jewelry and purple dress and bright green scarf remind you of this--it is not enough to fade into the background, not enough to simply show up to life. You must embrace it, bite into it with zest as you would a ripe peach.
Your wardrobe is a walking advertisement for who you are, an embodiment of who you are not afraid to be. You must wear it as your armor, your hard shell that refuses to be anything less than what you are. Let the world know:
You must go boldly into this world each and every day.
