how does fashion make you feel confident? The clacking sound that comes from wearing a pair of boots, oxfords, or any sort of heels, truly makes me feel powerful and confident, and there's nothing quite like it. Fashion has always been integral to my identity. I can choose to express myself however I want through clothing and have it be continuously evolving to fit my needs.
