But, I respect people who do their own thing even if I think they look like an idiot...actually especially when I (and probably everyone else) think they look like an idiot. The world is too full of sheep and people should do their own thing no matter how stupid it looks.
I really didn't want to pile on here, but now I can't help it. I so totally agree with the above!
If others are judging, I'm sure I sometimes come across as dressing kinda zany kooky. I like to think I dress avant garde, vintage, chic, siren, fun, happy. In the fashion world it's actually appreciated. And I'm told I get away with it because I own it, it's sort of my signature style and I wear it with confidence. Confidence is key in fashion. And in just being happy.
Saying all that, the kookiest, weirdest, most judged part of my "unique" outfits is now definitely ..... My Knife! My foliage green Dragonfly2! Oddly enough, that is what people are actually not one bit shy about critiquing, pretending to be oh so shocked by or actually saying they find really sexy. Being different, violating the dressing norm, doesn't make someone weird. Or does it? Whatevs....I gotta be me.
