Marauders thrive on experience and courageously plunge into the unknown. Like the experience of being closet lost, fashion marauders choose to recreate experiences, if not make new ones, and translate them into a whole new aural and visual festivity. It’s a fun and inspiring outlook that just stimulates all your senses, from something eye catching to candy for your ears that just celebrates what you feel is you for that moment.
An aural and visual festivity finds a fashion marauder imagining and immersing in an event or a scenery. Believe in what you haven’t actually seen and it will become reality. When you find yourself immersed in an environment, it eventually becomes real. Say you find yourself in the commonly perceived image of an office but this very morning you wake up and you would want to experience your work as something else. You find yourself dreaming of beautiful Venice filled with such colorful stories of Giacomo Casanova and how he swept women off their feet.
Just close your eyes and imagine what you feel Casanova sees and hears around him as he jumps through grand architectures and on to the balconies of women. Imagine what he’s wearing, what the people around him are wearing, and what you feel would suit you perfectly for the day. While you have that image, keep it and play music that you feel a gondolier would be playing as he steers through the canals. Your gondola experience could’ve well been your trip to work and your adventure as Casanova could be how you jump through each task that you need to get done. You are the star of your very own movie in your mind and making that decision to experience it as such simply allows you to hit high style notes from a complete stimulation of senses.
As a fashion marauder, I choose to see day-to-day experiences as aural and visual festivities. It’s like being in two places at the same time and believing in the complete experience of it. This way, recreating experiences makes each day memorable and your choice of clothes just becomes effortlessly instinctive.
As book author Miriam Beard has once said: “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”
