When I was a little girl, just starting to know who I was and yet to get in touch with my feminity, I always hated the clothes my mum picked out for me.
I always thought ” Gosh this cloth is hideous” or “it’s too big” but my mum always chose the exact opposite of what I wanted.
One day, I voiced out my mind and she said “Fine! Pick out what you want to wear today”
I was so happy and excited, I was determined to be the hottest at the birthday party we were going for.
I quickly rummaged through my drawer, spilling all the clothes out and searching for the hottest, skimpiest outfit I had.
Guess what I Wore? 😁:D
My mum walked into the room just when I was admiring myself in the mirror and laughed till her soft round body shook.
“You can’t wear your swimming trunk and Sunday shoes to the birthday sweety”
“What?”I Thought! “wasn’t I looking Beautiful? What was the difference? church outfit, swimming trunk.. They were all clothes Right?”
I didn’t understand the logic behind choosing the right clothes to wear to the right occasion..
Years Later, I still didn’t know how to choose my clothes, I graduated from having mum’s help to my elder sister’s help when I discovered my mum still bought me gowns with matching caps and bags at the age of 15.
I was about entering the university when I discovered I could not take my elder sister with me or show her my wardrobe through a video chat every morning for the right cloth to wear for lectures.
I had to learn to trust myself. I had to research and i had to know what was fitting on me and what wasn’t. I would not say I got it right at first but all I can say now is you wouldn’t catch me wearing my swimming trunk and Sunday heels to a cocktail party…
