I've started a fashion protest. It's day 3 of the protest, so far no one has been too upset. The gist of the protest is this. I'm sick of clothing (don't worry I'm not naked...brr....). But yeah, I'm sick of clothing, I'm sick of clothing expectations, and I am really sick of clothing waste and environmental problems associated with it. So, a protest was launched.
I have been wearing a lovely one piece sustainably produced linen jumpsuit, and the plan is to continue wearing the same thing indefinitely (with underthing changes and washes as appropriate, of course....) and just do it. Being the changeable oddball being that I am, I worry I will not be able to continue this protest very far into the future - I'm worried I will get tired of it... but the cause is really important to me. As an added bonus, maybe I can get rid of all of my other clothes. Think how minimal I would be then. Think how easy it will be to choose clothing. Think how easy wash days will be.
Of course, there will be criticism. Yes, I feel sure there will be criticism. And that is another worry about my resolve. Will I be able to withstand such criticism. The thing is, I have been the oddball in my group as long as I can remember, and it seems to me, that there are people you lose along the way, but there are always the steadfast ones that are your people.
Oh banish ye self doubt and anxiety, embrace the protest for the beautiful reasons it is and be one with oneself!
Nothing like a good banishing proclamation to set your head right. Thursday looking like a beautiful day to be alive again. Let's live.
