I've always had my own style, it encompasses a lot of genres so I just call it "colourful" plus I will never be caught without a bright bold colour somewhere in my outfit. Its my style and this means..... I define it myself, I decide how its put together but most importantly, I like it. So when people turn around and question my decisions on my hairstyle, or my shoes or worse...my accessories, I get so mad, you know? Like, I do not say anything about their style so why in the world would they attack mine?
What were you thinking? What gives? Are you going through a phase? Are you serious? What in the world? Why would you do that? or just plain staring.................................that's what I constantly deal with. Someone once told me that the only dream I am ever allowed to have is to be happy and be surrounded by loved ones and that fashion is a stupid dream.
I believe in a lot of things and I will fight for them and defend them but for some reason, I cannot defend the thing that's the most important to me (after God and my loved ones), my style. I can't explain to them the statement I am trying to make (not literally). They laugh at me, tell me fashion is not a future to look forward to and make me feel terrible for wanting it. But the thing is, I'm happy with who I am, I love my style and I get it. should it matter that I'm different and other people don't get me? I get me. and that's all that should matter but while I know that, it still makes me sad to think that others don't.

I always wanted to have lived in the fifties. The clothes are to-die-for, the shoes are amazing and the accessories are simply irresistible. I love the cute little dresses and how they have so much movement. I keep telling people how I would have fit right in. I think my style is influenced a lot by this. This and 80’s pop. I just love to be colourful. What’s the point in excluding colour from your wardrobe? Rock it!!!!!!!!
Do you finally get my obsession? Like who would ever be miserable with such clothes on? Don’t you just want to scream “I heart the 50’s”
