good memories

I forget sometimes, dressing is about being creative. I get stuck in the same cloth pieces and forget to try different things and different combos.
I remember the good old days, when dressing up was a play. It was also about dreaming, through clothes we could be whoever we wanted to be. We arranged our own fashion shows and made up ourselves what was fashionable. I remember me and my friends having a sleepover somewhere and we used to put on the craziest cloth pieces we could find, for example six jackets at the same time, rubber boots, and a shower cap. Then we walked in the streets at night scaring people away and making other hiding friends laugh in the bushes.
One of our best games was picking up the weirdest clothes in the stores and trying them on, having competition who has the ugliest outfit. I remember us laughing so hard, I had the best time ever back then. I think I have to call my friends for a reunion to do this again some time.
Well maybe it would be better to leave these memories in the childhood, but still I want to give that fantasy a little more space in my life. Experimenting with clothes, trying new styles, not taking it too seriously. And not caring what other people think and say, as long as I won’t be sent in a mental hospital with my experiments. But I think I won’t be that brave.
Do you have some funny clothing memories like these? :)
