A few years ago, I was cohost of a morning-drive Top 40 radio show. While everyone else came to work in sweatpants, sneakers and ball caps to cover up bedhead, I'd strut into the studio at 5am dressed in heels, leather pants and bright red lipstick. 
One day, my male co-host asked, "Why do you dress-up? It's radio. No one can see you." 
"It's who I am," I replied. "What I wear and how I look is part of my creative being. I love fashion and how putting together an outfit makes me feel. And that projects to my personality on air."
He snorted back, "No one cares about fashion."

As I stared at my co-host, clad in his Seattle Seahawks hoodie and baggy shorts, I clenched my jaw so it wouldn't drop to the floor.
My mind played the clip from the movie The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda dresses down her naive assistant:

"Oh… okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean...."

Yes, I understand some people don't care about fashion, or what they wear. But, please understand, some of us do. It's a form of creative expression. Of explaining to the world how we feel today. An appreciation for art, music, and creativity. 

And working in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the perfect muse for a DJ who loves fashion... because it's a stellar example of how music is intertwined with fashion, art, and creativity. Each show, I feel inspired and empowered to dress up. Some days, like today, it may be gold pants, a CD adorned Moschino bodysuit and Vinca Camuto faux fur jacket. Other days it may be tight black leather Anine Bing pants, stripped tank and Doc Martens. 

Dressing up for radio is just who I am. And I encourage you to be who you are too. Hopefully clad in something that makes you feel fabulous.
