Fashion for a Full Moon

20190218182716_IMG_0110Hi Everyone, today’s post has to do with the supermoon that occurred on February 19, 2019. According to www.space.com, a supermoon occurs when a “full moon coincides with the moon’s perigee, or the point in its elliptical orbit at which it is closest to Earth. This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.” It was reported to be closest to the earth at 11 a.m. on February 19, 2019.
This year we will actually get to witness three supermoons in a row on January 21, February 19, and the next one is taking place on March 21. I am really looking forward to it and will do a follow-up post on it.
You may wonder what the supermoon or full moon has to do with fashion. Interestingly enough, a full moon symbolizes a clean slate, a fresh start. And women’s fashion during a full moon encompasses the color white. White represents clarity, newness and innocence. It’s a color of trust.20190225_195620-e1551145053840.jpg

According to the plaid zebra, the worship of the moon is as old as recorded history itself. Even today the moon is celebrated among many religions, in particular those with pagan roots. Full moon parties have transformed into a symbol of creativity and rebirth.
What else do we associate a full moon with? According to folklore, “a full moon could also restore a wounded vampire to undead health.” (see full moons and vampires here)20190225_184630
If “undead” is considered to be healthy, that is a very optimistic attitude that I aspire to.
