Yesterday, my friend Greg posted a picture of his new green suede shoes on Facebook. The picture immediately caught my eye as I scrolled through my news feed. I “liked” the picture and then kept scrolling. And then I had a “beingbeginner” moment…I paused and realized I had a question for Greg; a question that I had initially forgotten to ask. I have been asking this question of friends, family and acquaintances as of late.
When people show me or tell me about clothing and accessories they like, I ask How (does it/do they) make you feel? I scrolled back up the page and posted my question for Greg and this is the conversation that showed up.
Amy: How do these make you feel? In body and mind?
Greg: Great question! Whimsical. Laughing. Playful and provocative with regard to conservative style.
Amy: Can I re-post on my blog? I haven’t had a chance to share the male perspective yet. What brand are they? I want to give credit where it is due .
Greg: Yes you may, and they’re Hush Puppies (though I must confess I got them at Ross, and for their flair rather than their label).
Amy: Thanks! It doesn’t have to be about the brand, although sometimes it is for me I sometimes refer to myself as a brand whore, lol. Ultimately, I am really about what makes you feel authentic and what shows up.
