Then you go out your way to create a similar epic look so that you can give off the same reaction to other spectators. True clothes freak are not jealous of other fashionistas because they respect the art and understand they are artist themselves. Hence, the art of style (we'll talk about that on another day). In a sense all fashionistas are struggling artist seeking for the right opportunity to display their work of art to the world.
It does not matter what the occassion the place or situation, all you know is, I GOT TO LOOK GOOD! Work, school, interviews, lunch dates, fun nights with friends, and any given celebration is a perfect opportunity to play dress up!
Growing up I was not allowed to share my clothes with my friends because I was taught people do not always treat your things the way you would treat your things. That stuck with me. Is it heard for you to lend out your favorite jeans or your polished DVF wrap dress? If yes, no worries you just might be a clothes freak. Because who truly but you has that connection with that garment. You have the story of when you bought it, when you wore it, the compliments you received and the feeling of looking your best. Just imagine a trusted friend borrows that perfect garment and mistreats it or never returns it. Sounds familiar?
Are you shopping for the hell of shopping? Do you find yourself getting off work heading to your favorite stores just to see what's new from yesterday or what's on sell today? Yeah clothes freak shop just to shop. No occasion needed, just the right price and fabulous clothes.
The #1 sign of a clothes freak is you have sooooo many clothes that they cannot all possibly fit in your bedroom closet. You find yourself putting your garments in other parts of the house (Remember Sex in the City character Carrie and how she used her stove to store shoes and whatever else?) and everywhere you turn feels like your own personal boutique. That my dear is a CLOTHES FREAK...Stay THRIFTY!
