Feet on the Ground, Head in the Clouds

Imaginary friends, a plastic playhouse becomes our own castle, brides, queens, mothers, astronauts, doctors, veterinarians, cowgirls. From our tender, toddler minds could grow the most astounding adventures. A treasure chest of costumes and dress-up clothes could carry us a world away in the blink of an eye. As we grow older we learn how to balance our ever-present imaginations with the responsibilities of our daily lives. And maybe fashion is an outlet for the oft-denied imagination, teaming with don't-you-want-tos. Some outfits make us feel capable, daring. Others make us feel protected and hidden. Our wardrobes are our grown-up treasure chests. If we let them, they can carry us away, even for just a moment...
