Swag Room

We don't normally overanalyze the things we do.  We do them because we want to.  Although, if we are making the same fashion choices over and over again, there is likely a reason beyond 'well, I like it' if you really sat down to think about it. Starting this blog has perhaps forced me to overanalyze the choices I make when I get dressed for a day at the office or for a night out on the town. For me, there are so many variables at play -  weather, mood, what will I be doing, will I be sitting, standing or even squatting, am I hot or cold, do I feel particularly fat or skinny.  But despite the changing variables that may be at play from day to day or even day to night, I have recognized that there always seems to be one constant - I always leave room for swag.  Whether it's the top or the bottom, I tend to wear one piece of clothing that moves over my body and not stuck tightly to it.  It may be a pair of pants that sit freely on my hips or a jacket that has perfectly placed pockets that I can sink right into.  Or maybe it's a shirt that shifts while I move, exposing one shoulder or the other.  I am innately attracted to movement in clothing. I like to be able to move in my clothes, not only with them.  I am not going to encourage you to overanalyze what you do and why you do it, instead, may I suggest that you leave a little room for swag in your get-ups. I think you'll be glad you did.
