As a woman, I cannot relate to the feeling that this pattern stirs up, but I’m fairly sure I’m identifying it correctly. Though the look and the effect are different, when our little Audra wears dresses and any fancy shoe with a bit of a heel on it, she twirls around and is transported to womanhood in her own mind, just like I was at her age.
We’d all love to say that what we wear isn’t important, but it is. It influences how we feel and how we view ourselves. Just ask some poor boy forced to wear a suit and tie to a wedding. Or just ask my husband when he’s in the same situation.
Camouflage makes my boys feel like men, and although at times it also makes them hard to find, I’m all for it. Maybe the clothes do make the man.
