2022 Simply Jamilah Fashion Week
To kickstart doing something I’ve always wanted to do, which is feeling comfortable and confident discussing different ways the external expresses the internal, I decided to host the first Simply Jamilah fashion week.
For the entire five-day work week I endure, I will share a writing dedicated to style. It’s not going to be all advice and looks. It’s a variety of content and conversation that shows the evolution, the rollercoaster ride, that is one’s appearance and its reflection.
Like, for this first day, I wanted to share my reaction to college ootws (outfits of the week) I filmed mere weeks before the world shutdown in March 2020.
To get a better vibe for all the outfits, here are the videos in chronological order.
Honestly, I don’t remember where most of the items in the videos are from, besides the Avengers shirt definitely being from Hot Topic. However, I remember how most of the outfits made me feel.
I remember the adrenaline rush of confidence I felt when I wore the navy dress with the white Filas. I remember the ugliness I felt in my simple avocado socks, green sweats, and black long sleeve. I remember how “normal” I felt in my gray turtleneck, faux denim pants, and green outerwear.
Style has the incredible capability to change the way you feel. If I don’t feel like the baddie Miss Independent I see for my future, I dress like her and get a surge of courage, motivation, and some slight confidence.
