Sorry for the long gap between posts (slaps my wrist!!)
I thought about the title of this post the other day and wanted to write something on my blog, so here goes! (this is just my views!)
I find it fascinating that people seem to think because I don't conform to the "fashion" of today that I must be 1. different, 2. have no feelings 3. am not able to hear or see 4. am not entitled to be what I want without judgements
The reason for these 4 points is over the last few weeks I have really noticed what "reaction" I seem to get when I'm out on my own dressed in my 40's or 50's get up. I have had extremely disapproving looks from alot of people, but a couple of weeks ago on two different occasions people actually voiced their opinions on what I was wearing, and was quite hurtful.
I was in two minds about writing this as I am not a confident person at all, but find that when I put my make up on, do my hair and put my vintage/repro/rockabilly outfit on I finally feel like "me" (if that makes sense!) Anyway, I found that the said people who decided it was fine to shout remarks to me "what the **** does she look like she think she's in a time warp shes mental" and such like comments have really knocked what confidence I did have.....what are your views on this and what are people's reactions if any to your style?
I appreciate everyone can have their opinion of course, its just I don't go out of my way to give looks or shout remarks to people who conform to the latest "fashion" and all look like clones of each other, do I?!
I'd love your thoughts on this and hope I haven't offended anyone!
Back later in the week with some pics :)
