Happiness is a state of mind -- but it can also be a state of style. That's right, fashion has the power to put smiles on our faces and some pep in our step.
While we're aware of the well-documented benefits of retail therapy, there are plenty of other ways that fashion invokes pure joy. Whether it's the euphoria of finding a pair of high heels that are comfortable enough to wear all day or the magical moment when you finally draw the perfect cat eye -- there is potential for happiness around every stylish corner.
With the HuffPost Lifestyle 30-Day Happiness Challenge in full swing, it was only right to list some of those everyday fashion moments that bring so much delight.
