You must indulge. Treat yourself.
It’s not madness to want, even need, to be transported by the things you wear. Scientists have come up with a name for it — enclothed cognition. It’s the psychological impact clothes have on the wearer. Put on a white lab coat and all of a sudden you feel like a doctor. You become more intelligent. Don’t believe me?
May I present: gorgeous red taffeta.
It’s working already, isn’t it?
How about a fit and flare gown?
Your shoulders have become a bit more erect; a slight lifting of the brow; a little hitch in the giddyup. This is the power of enclothed cognition. Now you’re wondering if a diamond encrusted pumpkin coach whisking you away to the holiday gala is too much? Just enough I’d say. If only for a night.
