Red and yellow trousers, or Sunday night inspirations
Is having ideas and being inspired the same thing?
Sunday night, tomorrow I have to get up early. It is really cold.
A few hours ago, I was dead tired despite good intentions of going to bed early, I played cards and drunk met with my neighbors.
Now I am here, a bit tipsy happy to sleep.
My brain decides to come up with all sorts of things I could do. One brilliant idea after the other.
My body is tired, but my brain is as productive has it hasn’t been for the whole day. And I lay awake for hours fantasizing about all the things I could do and create and what to do with them after, and so on. While I haven’t even concluded the first step of the whole chain.
I literally didn’t even get up yet, I am supposed to sleep.
Now is that sensation called inspiration or am I just having more ideas, then I can fulfill?
Nevertheless, over the years I managed to contain or restrict my creative work to mainly textile and fashion related subjects. It can still overboard. I want to do too many things at the same time leading me in different directions.
One thing that seems to come back constantly is my dilemma, between working on fashion projects I make or working on sewing and designing my own ideal wardrobe.
Confusing? I think so too! But that’s the point.
Recently I went through another dressing-depression. (Yes, I am not just being confusing but also dramatic.)
It happens usually when I am stressed or I have too many things lining up. Without noticing, I start to dress in all black and comfy, wearing pretty much exactly the same things over and over in rows.
It is easy, comfortable, but I don’t like it. I get bored and lazy.
I want the clothes I wear to represent how I feel (they do it anyway, but I don’t want to feel lazy and bored).
Thus, I decided to execute some color therapy on myself. I am not allowed to wear black. It doesn’t matter If I look good, it only matters that I don’t wear black.
The only thing required, are colorful clothes.
…if only your wardrobe would provide something else then black garments.
Which brings me exactly to all the ideas I had on this Sunday night.
Monday made me start with one of them.
Red and yellow trousers.
I am still overwhelmed with all the other things I want to create, design and do. But I am excited to wear one of those trousers tomorrow. And that’s an achievement!
Thank you all to share my stories with me, I appreciate all of you! Have a lovely week!
