In this video I discuss why it’s important to evaluate the language we communicate to ourselves. Are we being our own worst enemies or our own best friends? By substituting “I should” with “I can,” we’re empowering ourselves to take action rather than forcing ourselves to do something rooted in anxiety, expectation and pressure. Today’s #lipstickaffirmation, “It’s Not That *I Should,* It’s That *I Can*” can be found here.

Mr. Dino is a designer from the 1960s who once dined with many a fine lady. These ladies enjoyed wearing his op-art prints to social soirees, artistic affairs and to raise eyebrows whilst shopping around town. Mr. Dino made dresses of designs compared to the likes of Emilio Pucci. While we all know Mr. Pucci by both first and last name basis, the average #vintagelover is hardly familiar with the pseudonym Mr. Dino.
The 1960s was a fashion decade of lightning fast changes as influenced by the era’s various subcultures from hipsters to hippies; beatniks to mods to swingers. An era of sweeping social and political change, the fashion trends were fast-moving and quickly commercialized by designers from “underground” origins to the mainstream.
