Hi, loves(: Like we promised, today is guest post day from Sarah/Havoc, from the blog http://correctingpenswelcome.wordpress.com .
And by the way, it’s absolutely perfect.
Hello. I am not Kadence. In fact, I am Kadence’s lovely friend Sarah. I am guest blogging today because I told Coffee that I hated her and we are rewarded for those sorts of things in this country called the internet. Just kidding. I won a contest for being awesome. It happens a lot.
And today, I am talking about clothing. Sort of. Because I was thinking about it the other day.
See, one of my friends the other day asked me why I never where Hollister and Abercrombie and such stores, and why I buy used clothes from salvation army, or make my own, etc. And here is my answer to that.
I believe that fashion is more about art than it is about fitting in. What you wear is what people immediately see in you. I wear sweaters and ties and sometimes big rain boots with laces on them. What does that say about me? I have no idea. For me to tell you that it would probably be biased, but I and can tell you what it won’t say about me.
It won’t say that I buy clothes where everyone else buys clothes because everyone else buys their clothes there. And in all honesty, it won’t show that I have to hide behind labels to feel good about myself. I feel fine wearing large sweatshirts that my grandpa owned, because that says something about *me*, not something about how cool I am.
Of course this doesn’t get me new friends or anything, but it is something that the friends I have can respect. The people that don’t respect it can deal with it.
And to the girl on the bus that saw I had red vines and asked me who the hell would by *me* candy like I have a disease than enables people from liking me or something, I hate your shirt, and also it’s logo.
(for the record, I wear Hollister and Rocawear and stuff from Taylor Gang and Wet Seal; what’s that say about me?)
Coffee<3 and to a lesser extent, Havoc
