When I think of Greed my mind always goes back to my childhood when I used to watch Spongebob Squarepants. Mr.Krabs truly represented greed with his obsession over money and not wanting to spend a single cent. I remember there was this one episode where they had a stingiest Crab award that went to a crab who truly demonstrated their ability to go a long way by spending little to no money. Greed is the next sin in Dante’s Inferno and it is seen as a sin because you’re keeping something to yourself and not doing anything valuable with it so therefore it’s being wasteful. We all have had moments where we’ve been a little greedy. There have been times where I would see something that I need but then think about how I don’t want to spend my money on it. I have been thinking about this sin and I wonder, would it be greed to possess a skill or a talent and not use it?
This outfit is pretty self explanatory as to why it represents greed. I mean there is money within the outfit itself. Also the yellow and the gold in the outfit is supposed to reflect on currency. I mean someone has got to be pretty protective of their money when they’ve even got it around their neck. I totally feel like this is an outfit Mr. Krabs would look into just so he can count the coins he’s got around his neck. 🙂
We all have our own favorite foods that we love to eat all the time. Now you cant tell me that you wouldn’t eat a whole bunch of your favorite food within one sitting. I personally love cake and to if we’re being completely honest, I could eat a whole cake all by myself. Sadly eating a lot of cake in one sitting is considered as gluttony. According to Dante Alighieri, it’s a sin because it is considered as wasteful since over eating is not necessary and it’s also an unhealthy practice. But let’s all be completely honest, how can we pass up more than one slice of pizza?
This outfit was fun to create because it was a bit of a challenge. I decided to take a sweeter route since I had already used a deep red for the lust outfit. Also these colors reminded me of candy so I thought it was pretty perfect. I used the lips in the earrings because how else can you commit gluttony if you don’t have your mouth. Plus the earrings looked really cool with the outfit. The mug I included because I would gladly eat cake for breakfast any day! Can you tell I like cake?
Now keep in mind when I say that I’m a sinner, it means that I’m just human and we all have points where we commit a sin. I’ve decided to do an “I’m A Sinner” series because I thought it would be cool to portray certain sins through outfits. The order I decided to post each outfit is according to the order that it is seen in Dante’s Inferno. By now you all know I’m a huge literature fan and I can read almost anything and I will be interested. When I first read Dante’s Inferno I was completely hooked because I love how the sinners are punished based on the irony of their sin.
I’ve decided to start off with lust because it’s the first circle of sin other than Limbo. People think this circle is only dedicated for those with strong sexual desires but Dante also puts in this circle those who have died for love. Such as Romeo and Juliet, they both killed themselves for love so they would be placed in the lust circle. The sinners are stuck in a hurricane of fire to show the irony for their fiery passions. Now I have mentioned that we are all sinners but I haven’t committed an act of lust. I mean what else do you expect out of a fifteen year old?
As you can see I used a lot of red in the outfit because I wanted to show a fiery passion through the outfit. I mean what can be more fiery than the color red and an outfit with a lot of attitude? For some reason when I see this outfit I can imagine a woman with a lot of confidence and sass wearing it which is more of what I was going for when trying to create and outfit for this sin.
I’m sure we all in our lifetime experience at least one Valentine’s Day Blues. Even though this year’s Valentine’s Day wasn’t bad or terrible, I didn’t really get the opportunity to hang out with any one so I kind of just stuffed my face with chocolate that day along with some Disney movie watching. Yes I know, I’m your typical teenage girl but what can I say? I love my Disney movies and I love me some chocolate. This past weekend I took liberty of going out to the movies even though it’s after Valentine’s days. The good thing about hearts though is that you can wear them any day without it being looked down upon because the holiday has already gone by. I didn’t want to wear the same old pink or red so I chose something different. I got this dress for Christmas and I thought it would go perfectly with these heart socks. I will admit I’m an odd one, only in my world can I justify that hearts and flowers go together. Also to add on to the funky pattern mix, I matched it up with some denim shoes for some extra fun. I mean while we’re still young why not feel free to act that way sometimes and dress young. I never completely understood the whole dressing older thing because we’re only young once so why not dress like it. I’ll have my time in the future to dress older and more mature but for now I’m going to be as quirky and fun as I can be.
