it takes practice, but the best way to be confident in having a different style is to love what you're wearing! 3 years ago it was hard to wear my creations out of the house and hear the insults, but today I started my second year of college in an outfit I love and got loads of compliments! confidence is key, always hold your head high and walk with definite strides. that way you can't lose Happy
