|| Dressing well is not a question of money, but of
creativity and courage. Though most people only see Tommy Hilfiger and Versace, there are
alternative ways of dressing. These ways are usually cheaper and often more unique. It is
also fun to develop an own style. This guideline in the hands of little children helps
them, to increase their creativity and to build a strong personality.
The first place to get a cheap dress is the nearest Wal-Mart or
Target. There, one can find the needed article in a very short time. If one does not mind
wearing last year's fashion which is quite unique, nobody else wears it anymore
then one can find, for example, a T-shirt as cheap as two dollars. Jeans ($6.99)
and shoes ($5.99) complete the looking. Women can add earrings ($45.99), and men could buy
a unique, handmade scarf ($8.99). This makes just $68.37 for women or $26.48 for men, both
including tax. That is, indeed, cheap.
For good handcrafters, this is another great source:
Buying cloth and producing your own clothing is cheap and fun. After a little practice in
sewing and knitting, you will have a great time in making your own fashion. When wearing
clothes that reflect your own ideas and that fit you perfectly, your dressing will look
outstanding. Many essays and books already exist for further reading on this topic.
After all, cloth has been already used more than 2000
years for dressing and it might be interesting to start something new. Alternative
materials will make the clothing of the future. Newspapers, for example, are not only good
to make funny looking hats, but it is also possible to make T-shirts, pants, even socks,
using modern glue. This clothing looks interesting. One will never be bored, wearing it.
Sweaters made of potato peels are one of the very new inventions, and they were the hits
on this year's fashion parades in Paris and Rome. Cook 30 pounds of small potatoes. Peel
the potatoes and start to weave what other people would buy for hundreds of dollars!
Twenty-five pounds of potatoes cost $12.99 at Wal-Mart.
The most interesting aspect of modern fashion is its
variety. There is an unimageably big world of ways to dress and to look good. Everybody is
invited to use and expand his creativity. People having problems in this area, can just
ask their children to get hundreds of new ideas. Since the way fashion is going nowadays
is not an expensive one, everybody is invited to follow. Maybe we will soon live in a
world in which everybody dresses his way and people tolerate and love one another.
