I am a firm believer in dressing up! Not only is dressing up absolutely great to do for Funzies, but it also gets you places. The way you dress can get you in a certain place, get you to talk to certain people, and can definitely make you feel a certain way. Everyone is different of course, so it only makes sense that everyone dresses up differently! THIS is how I dress:
And, yes. Dressing differently does get you in some . . . interesting places. I will get some of the most out of the blue people talking to me! I oft receive some of the most interesting comments (which I always try to take as compliments) on my outfits! The only down side I've yet to find about dressing the way I do is that it doesn't really get me a whole lot dates.
Which is understandable. . . Guys don't really wanna line up to hold hands with someone who dresses how their mom, gran-gran, or great- gran dressed back in their hay-day! No worries though! Since I'm only in High School I'm not exactly looking for a soul mate yet. For now I'm happy to wait for my Prince Charming to come sweep me off my vintage leather mens' shoes.
Being a high-schooler is another reason why people tend to look at my outfits differently. I naturally already look kinda older than I am (which, not gonna lie, kinda gets me down), but then on top of it I don't dress a whole ton like high-schoolers do! I've been stopped by security guards at my school and asked why I was coming on campus . . . then given a shocked look when I tell the "I GO here"!
Once, while at a movie theatre, I took my little brother and sister into line to get popcorn while my mom was buying tickets and we were behind this old couple. I was standing there holding their hands, trying to get them to calm down, when the lady suddenly turned around. She smiled and said "I just wanted to tell you that you have such beautiful children". . . while I gotta admit I was happy she thought they were pretty children (just as I do), I was also pretty displeased with the fact that she thought they were mine!
But, despite what people think or how they feel about how I dress, I really like it! I have an absolute blast doing it! So, that's what this blog is going to be basically! Me sharing my passions and craziness! Spreading the joy of loving yourself and what your in!
