When I was little, my mom was watching some kind of fashion show on TV and one of the designers remarked that, “Fashion helps us forget we will one day die”. This is fascinating to me! Does enjoying fashion help us deal with our mortality? Does a strong sense of style distract us from our limited longevity?
Judging by the gorgeous women on www.advanced.style (photo below), perhaps throwing oneself into outfit creation is a great way to live longer! Could this be the secret to a long life? Does this mean that shopping is good for my health? There’s only one way to find out.
To tell you the truth, I think fashion is a wonderful way to stay present in life. It gives you a sublime focus on the here and now, regardless of how long you live.
Be present and stay fashionable, readers!
