How I Finally Started Valuing Myself



In case you have been wondering why I increased my prices with the Wanderlust Collection, here is the story of how I finally started loving and valuing myself, and stopped comparing myself to others.

This is actually inspired by Annching's guest post from a couple weeks back on why you should stop bragging about how cheap your clothes are. But this is from the other side.

My side as a designer and creator of beautiful handcrafted pieces.

Let's start all the way from the beginning of my career in 2005.

What You Wear Is How You Feel

Has this ever happened to you?

You wake up from your annoying alarm, hit the snooze button 5 times until you realize you'll be late for work (or school), jump out of bed, pull the first thing out of your closet and leave (hopefully there was a little morning hygiene and getting dressed involved too).

By the time you leave the door you realize - "Shit, what am I wearing?!" but its too late. And you feel uncomfortable all day - pulling and tucking at your clothes and think everyone is staring (no one really is).

And all that because of the "wrong" outfit that you pulled out of your own closet.

Why is it that some days wearing certain things (your own things mind you) makes you feel like you are wearing a costume?

It's because one way we express who we are and how we are feeling is with our clothes. And since we are no robots that means our emotions and the way we feel changes all the time (every 10 minutes for me but I have a Pisces Moon, so its not my fault. Sometimes, I actually change my outfit several times a day, it's that bad.)

Why You Need to Stop Bragging About How Cheap Your Clothes Are

by Annching Wang

Fashion's Night Out, a now global event, was started in New York in 2009 to support the fashion industry through the promotion of full-priced merchandise. As the kick off to New York Fashion Week, the night of parties, shopping, celebrities, and events all had one caveat: retailers were discouraged to use this event to kick off sales or to drive sales of discounted merchandise. The goal is to generate buzz and excitement for fashion itself (the industry, the clothes, the brands, the designers, the events), to move away from, even for just one night, what fashion has become almost synonymous with: discounting. Every year, the event gets bigger and better, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that it is only a blip on the map, and the discounting mentality of the consuming public will not change anytime soon. After all, who doesn't want a good deal?
