Express yourself, don’t repress yourself. Why? It’s human nature…,
For awhile I found myself screaming quietly, “Get me, get me out of this box, I feel so claustrophobic in here.” This Poor Boy With Rich Taste just got the chance to do just that! GLAM’s “Pop Art” Fashion show was graced by more than 22 models, dazzling in designs created from garbage bags, tissue, newspaper, caution tape and duct tape.
Usually the shows are highly theatrical with dancing, modeling routines, celebrity hosts and acting, but this one was an intimate affair stripped of those things and putting the attention exactly where it belongs, on the fashion.
Usually I don’t rip the runway, however I was overcome with a desire to express myself that burned brighter than the fear trying to stop my shine. The spotlights hit the runway, as the line behind the stage formed of eager models ready to strut their stuff. My heart was now beating faster than a southern hummingbird’s wings. The time had come…I hit the runway and left any negative thoughts behind me as my feet hit the pavements in a rapid confident pace. It was like eating bucket loads of your favorite guilty pleasured food, but not gaining any weight…price$$.
The scene was “Out of the Box” fashion and I chose to wear the daring outfit pictured above because it’s official, spring is here. Some people may go for the light, airy colors or shoot for something more bold? For me, I chose this eclectic outfit that was a vibrant mix of colors placed cleverly underneath a cool African printed blazer I found at the thrift store.
This experience taught me that expressing yourself can come in may forms that include but are not limited to art, fashion, writing and more! The outlet chosen for expression does not matter because it takes great courage to be…out of the box.
