I love some things about fashion in general. One, certain styles can flatter your figure and enhance your features. Two, high fashion is generally so ridiculous and wacky looking that it appeals to my sense of absurdity. I'm tempted to just be totally absurd and anti-fashion. I'm chubby, but I want to get a bikini. So I'm gonna get one and wear it and look totally gross and weird. I'm gonna go play guitar somewhere and wear a midriff showing top with a leather jacket and some jeans and not give a damn. I'm gonna wear whatever I feel like, and anybody who has a problem with that can go to fashion conformist hell.
go for it
I find I'm often too scared to wear something kind of wacky, I become so anxious about what people might call out at me in the street that the thought of wearing whatever makes me feel sick. I really don't care what people think but being called names by strangers is horrible. I want to wear my short shorts with tights and my red pointy shoes (they have a very small heal but still look like high heals) but then I feel too dressed up and since I deal with a number of dogs every week its just not practical. I love dressing up but I don't really go to that many places to dress up and I'm always in a rush so i forget to put together an outfit.
Thanks for the encouragement. Usually when I perform is the only time I have to put together an outfit.
I say go for it too, if it makes you happy.
Like you Queeny, I feel so bloody anxious wearing what makes me happy!
It stems from being called names in my close minded town, as a teen, me and my friend wore hippy skirts and dresses and were called lots of things, never good haha
So now I am better at it, living here in Reykjavik where people wear mad things I don't feel so anxious.. well maybe a little haha
Yeah... I live in a large, but not huge, city - not like New York or Los Angeles, and there are only certain parts of the city where it's "acceptable" to wear whatever you feel like. I'm just so tired of feeling restricted. I just want to be me.
I try to wear whatever I want, but its hard when you live in nebraska and the weather is crazy all the time, and you live in a small town, so the class sizes are, maybe, 40 kids. It is even worse when you are in high-school and everyday people comment on you looks to you face or behind your back. But thank you Rainbow Funster for giving me more confidence about what i wear, I now feel better about what i wear and dont pay as much attention as i used to. When i go to school on monday, im gonna wear whatever i want and not give a damn what people say.
The weather also plays a huge part in what I can wear. I normally just wear boring jeans and top to work, as I have to wear rain pants and warm jacket! So in that sense I can't really wear my style until we get a kind of Icelandic spring/summer hehe
Yeh weather is a definate factor. If it's first thing in the morning and its raining I would glady carry my duvet around out in public lol I would just rather hide in something warm and baggy!
my anxiety comes from school as well and this being a small town, I love going to cities and seeing the mad people
For me it completely depends on the mood I'm in. Sometimes I'll go all out and put on some vintage suit that isn't cool vintage, just tacky vintage, or I'll be in a Dita Von Teese mood and dress up, but because I've been really down lately I've just wanted to wear jeans and a tshirt and disappear. I'll work on it though =P
im feeling the same at the moment kk
you will not be gross, you will be beautful
anyway, anti fashion is the new fashion
Thanks for the encouragement. I've been trying to encourage other people to wear and do/be what they want also... like my best friend, who is a size 2 and thinks that she is too chubby to wear what she wants.
I like wearing what I want to but always feel so nervous, like people are talking about me behind my back about what I'm wearing :\
Doesn't stop me though, I know its just an irrational fear and I'll get over it.
I like to be different
