WEARING WHAT YOU WANT
Too many times have I not worn an item of clothing for fear that people would raise an eyebrow. Even if I loved that piece, and it perfectly reflected what I wanted to get across in my outfit. Recently I've pushed myself to really change this way of thinking, and do things for myself, not for others. This includes wearing makeup on a more regular basis. I was in a slump where I would wear it maybe once a week, just for filming, and didn't really enjoy the process. Same goes for building outfits. I would just wear what was the "norm" or what wouldn't offend others, without really reflecting myself.
Now I think, what do I want to wear today for myself. What kind of makeup do I think looks cool. I try not to allow others' opinion into the equation at all. Honestly, what's the risk? Strangers' judgement? A few stares? Even rude comments? But so what? What on earth do their opinions matter anyways? Go ahead mix those prints, wear the gaudy sweater, mix red and pink, black and brown, because who the fuck cares. Clothes are supposed to be whimsical, fun, and why waste time wearing outfits we find boring or not representative of us. Life is too short to not wear what we want, and if the outfit makes us happy, no one can take that away. Don't question yourself, just put on what you want. Wear that faux fur coat to the grocery store.
