Hi Emily. Lots of good advice and suggestions. For me I never really considered the term fetish although i suppose looking back there were times where someone looking on might have thought it that. Often i never had the time i really wanted to enjoy being dressed sooo, I used my often quite limited time to get as much enjoyment (ok, pleasure) out of it as possible.
But when i had the time (and im referring to a period of several consecutive days…well to be honest that and other periods lasting a day or more) those have become the moments ive remembered as really the most relaxing and meaningful times.
It was because i could dress each day in something diifferent whether it was dresses, tees or camis or blouses and skirts or just a top and jeans. And because i also did lots of regular stuff like chores – washing, ironing, vacuuming, dishes, drinking wine while taking nice long baths with candles, and watching chick flicks and so on. i learned to just live when i could dress like i would in drab
I didnt need to rush anything or feel i had to get certain things done in a limited time. I mean certain desires didnt just magically disappear but i learned to dress AND enjoy the normal things . And if there was an excitement here or there it was because it was just a part of my life not the focus.
Its just something each of us has to explore on our own and hopefully come to a balance that makes and keeps the moments and experiences enjoyable. I hope you will find that balance too. You and we all deserve it.
