For this week's FBFF topic, Lili from Relatable Style suggested we dress like our alter ego. Here's her explanation:
The plan is to create an outfit that shows one (or several!) of your alter egos. It can be anything: Who you are deep inside, who you always thought you would be, or who you would be right now if circumstances allowed. Maybe you are a total diva, but your rural living environment does not exactly call for satin gloves up to the elbows and feather boas? Or you always thought you'd be a rockstar? A mom? Maybe you feel out of place in today's world sometimes and you could imagine yourself as a poet in the Victorian era? Or travelling the world with your camera, shooting for Vogue? Whatever it is, show us! You can also write a few (or many many) lines about the background of your alter ego, if you like.
I chose to dress like a young adult novel author. Growing up, I used to write as an outlet. When I was unpopular in school and wishing I had a boyfriend, I'd write about falling in love and going on adventures with friends. Now that I'm busy with a husband, baby, friends, and full-time job, I've (unfortunately?) lost much of my angsty inspiration. Maybe when Bridget gets older, I can write about her angst.
I'm a fact finder, as a profile from my previous job indicated, so I took to Google to research what novelist extraordinaire J.K. Rowling wears. Then, I made a simple but sharp-looking outfit for working at home and a red carpet look for the premiere of the movie adaptation of my book.
