Change         /CHānj/         1) make or become different.

Change is an odd fish – inevitable, insurmountable and often used with negative connotations. I don’t understand why change has been given such a bad rep over the years when something changes it doesn’t need to mean the end of something or movement to worsened situation. It’s a chance to revive and revamp, another door opening and we should appreciate it just as much as we appreciate the transition from the darkness of winter into the blossoming of spring. 

When this ASOS White Ovoid Wrap Dress arrived in the post I loved and hated it in equal measure – like when you chop off your hair, you love the freedom and novelty of change but hate the fact that you’ve changed and can’t go back. Instead of throwing straight back into the box in a rabid frenzy I decided to take a second and look at the dress. What did I like about it? – the pattern, material and contrast between the tight arms and the oversized shape. What did I not like about it? – I felt a little claustrophobic with the material tight to my throat and the way it fell when it was done up.

So I decided to make a change, by taking the wrap over sections for the front I tucked them up nice and neatly below my arm to create a smooth front line for a crisp, lightweight spring/summer jacket. Change doesn’t have to be soul crushing, it doesn’t even need to be substantial but change is good for your soul – don’t be such a chicken shit.
