Did someone recently called you a narcissist for being so much into dressing up and fashion? Have you ever been shamed for being too careful about how you dress?
So, feeling shallow for spending so much time (and effort) about what to wear…?
Well, we women are constantly led into believing that thinking too much about ourselves and our appearances is not a great thing…that there is no point in fashion…and, maybe that we should not be so ‘selfish’!

You already have so many!” It could be anything – sarees, salwar suits, dresses, gowns, leggings, lehengas, skirts, jewelry or make up…but, you will come across numerous people – at myriad points in life – who will tell you that fashion, style and clothes are just superficial.
