Right. So I don't usually rant about stuff on here but I really feel the need to get it off my chest so here goes haha. I know this is a pretty bold outfit, and obviously not to everyone's taste; but I like it. Me. And whats really annoying is when I'm out and about and people look at me like I'm walking around in a hot dog suit or something. I don't know if its just because of where I live- Nottingham- and people don't "get" fashion etc, but it just really pisses me off that total strangers think its appropriate to stare at me with snobby faces. And to be honest its all basic bitches that are about 16 and wearing jeans and a Jack Wills hoody (sorry to stereotype but it really was) in little groups. It's ridiculous that a bunch of silly little girls can make me feel bad about myself but there you go. So I honestly applaud all those people out there having the confidence to wear whatever they want and not give a shit what people think, I think that's amazing. I really struggle with my self confidence and I won't go in to details, but I do find it distressing that people think its okay to stare at you and criticize what you're wearing to the point of making you feel bad. Fair enough I'm not saying like what I'm wearing, I'm just saying don't stare at me and give me a dirty look to look big in front of your friends. Be rude to me, and I'll be rude to you. Which is what I did, I just laughed at the people staring at me in a "I pity your basic-ness so much" way, which got them to stop staring and look embarrassed. I study fashion; I'm going to push boundaries. But now I feel I shouldn't be so bold with what I wear, because people look at me like I'm some sort of alien.
However, we can't let people like that bring us down I guess. I figure, wear what makes YOU happy. Wear bright colours on a snowy day, or all black on the hottest day of the year; if that's what you want to wear, DO IT. But I have to say, I no longer plan to wearing my crazy clothing in Notts as I'm not looking to be the fashion freak. Newcastle however? There I feel I can wear anything, and that's why I love it.
Anyway, sorry to ramble on, if anyone's actually read this I hope it didn't sound too angry or bitchy! We all need a ramble sometimes I guess! Also if anyone's ever experienced the same sort of thing, hope this inspires you to carry on being yourself and wearing what you want...wow that sounded cheesy as so I'll leave it here.
