I have really been enjoying the new Burlington commercials that share what folks’ clothes say about them. I find them utterly charming. If you have not seen them, check them out – check them out here.
I believe that there is a lot of truth in these ads, which is why they are so fabulous. Let’s face it, when we get dressed and go out in the world we know that our clothes say something about us. They say things that we might never outwardly say or things we do not recognize about ourselves, but they say something.
So, what do your clothes say about you? Do your clothes say the same types of things the clothes in the Burlington commercials say or are they saying something more germane? I spent some time thinking about what my clothes say about me and I have concluded that there are handful of things my clothes might say about me depending on the day.
“I like feeling comfortable.”
“I take no prisoners.”
“I was half asleep when I got dressed.”
“I love my life.”
“I am mostly conservative, peppered with a tinge of adventurous.”
“I need to do laundry.”
“I’ve got this.”
“I am happy to represent the rockin’ glammas of the world.”
Yes – that is what my clothes are saying about me. Perhaps I should issue them a gag order.
