Jennifer Lopez has some wise words for those who are too petrified to glam it up during economic recession. Not the ones who can’t afford, but the ones who can afford but shy away because of the fear of criticism. She was speaking to WWD on the topic of dressing up during down times.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with playing dress up right now. Who wouldn’t want to wear borrowed dresses and borrowed jewelry? I think you can get criticized if you’re wearing borrowed dresses now because it’s borrowed, and I think you can get criticized for if it’s not because you bought it during the current economy.
So I say do what makes you happy and wear what you want because the only thing that really matters is if your mother calls you up the next day and says, ‘What were you wearing?
Even I feel there is no need to burden ourselves with the thought of getting criticized for dressing up during recession, especially if we can afford to spend. Those who criticize are themselves pushing the economy further into depression. We need to spend if we want the economy to bounce back. And those who can afford to spend a million, should spend a million!
I’m with you J.Lo. Alas! I don’t have the millions to spend, but I do spend as much as my budget allows me to spend.
