Usually, I do not let anyone elses opinion affect my clothing choices. That's the difference between style and fashion, you know? But if absolutely every stranger on the street is making comments like 'I would not be caught dead in that' or refusing me service in stores and gasping and sighing dramatically- I get nervous and anxious.
I want to pretend I'm doing study at university or something, and hand people a survey on a clipboard when they walk past me.
- Why did you react like that to my outfit?
- Did you think twice about why it shocked you?
- Do you have a problem with/are you offended by long silk dresses and lace?
- Did you think to respect me as a human before nudging your friend and gossiping?
It just confuses me really, because I think cult party is an as un-offensive style as it gets. No rude symbols or words, no political or religious statements, not 'a lot of skin showing' (not something I have a problem with, but others might) etc. etc.
I don't want to have to be nervous about wearing what I want to wear in my own neighbourhood.
Think I'm a weirdo for wearing a nightgown out all you like, but you'll never be as comfy as me. My silk dress is light as air, cozy, and beautiful. You will never know the joy of sifting through a clothes rack and finding the perfect vintage dress for $3. Don't scoff at me, I should be scoffing at you. If only you could be comfortable enough in your own skin to dress the way you wanted to. Pity.
Jacket and nightie are thrifted (also wearing another thrifted nightie as an underdress), bag is from Typo, Vans were bought at Hot Topic.
Everything but the shoes are gifts or thrifted. Dress is worn as a skirt. I later added white tights and a brown belt to this coord.
