Is being FASHIONABLE essential to BALANCE?

 To the question above, I would say "no", BUT...I do believe what you wear reflects how you feel about your life. 

In high school, my unique (and sometimes wacky) outfits expressed my desire to escape the constant academic and social pressure.  During college and early career, I felt more comfortable and literally started to conform to the dress I saw around me.  In my late 20's, my all black wardrobe reflected my dim outlook on the future as I felt trapped in a successful career that was suffocating my soul.  My style of dress has changed with every stage of my life, and as I look back now, my clothes have always expressed my state of being.

What is your soul saying to you through your clothes?
