Now listening: The Secret Emotional Life of Clothes

For me, fashion isn’t just about the latest styles; it’s something a bit more.  If I’m expecting a hard day, one that requires lot of decision-making, I might wear something that is dark, tough and structured.  For some reason, I feel more powerful and put together, as if the outside armor helps me be stronger internally.   When I’m exhausted, I like to be cocooned in an oversized sweater because it’s comforting to be enveloped in something soft and warm.

I don’t know where it comes, nature or nurture?  That’s why I really love the Invisibilia podcast, which delves into the human psyche.  Like so many, I’m obsessed with podcasts.  I love to listen to them during while doing errands – particularly when I’m walking somewhere.  It’s the perfect time to get lost in a beautiful narrative, laugh at a funny moment, and broaden one’s horizon by peering into another’s story.  I also feel that it helps balance out all the terrible/amazing Bravo shows I watch (think Vanderpump Rules, not Housewives :D).

This particular episodes, The Secret Emotional Life of Clothes, follows unintended impact of clothes. They share six, very different stories about humans grappling with the power of clothes.  

Take a listen.  You just might learn something about yourself or someone else.  Tell me what you think.

Invisibilia is a show from NPR.  Invisibilia (Latin for invisible things) is about the invisible forces that control human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions. Co-hosted by Lulu Miller, Hanna Rosin and Alix Spiegel, Invisibilia interweaves narrative storytelling with scientific research that will ultimately make you see your own life differently.
