I think it's fun to get dressed and play with different characters and personas. I usually dress along the lines of a girl-punk-fairy aesthetic, but lately I've been getting into like, bad ass punk/vampire/witch vibes. I've been trying to dress a little outside my comfort zone because I want to explore things and be brave. High school is a time where people just change a lot. It's weird seeing my close friends suddenly become somewhat like strangers to me. I think my form of change has come in ways of inner growth and understanding, along with more self acceptance. I've also figured out that I'm really the only one I need to please. I don't need to dress for other people, and I don't need to get good grades just so I can do better than my classmates. I'll work as hard as I can and I'll wear whatever I want. I'll do things I like doing, like going to concerts of cool/weird-in-a-good-way bands, making zines and clothes, and listening to Riot Grrrl because that's what I like to do. It doesn't matter that other people aren't into that (at my school) it just matters that I'm doing what I like. Chris Brown sucks ballz and I hate rap music and dub step is boring so why listen to them? I'm not going to do things just so I can have something to talk to people at school about. I think that's how I've changed. I think my "fuck it" moment has finally come. I still care a little too much, but I definitely have that "screw it" attitude locked in a lot more.
I put this outfit together in the hopes of looking bad ass. I kind of look like a vampire-witch (notice broom stick in corner) which (witch) (haha look at me making such clever puns) I really like. At first my hair was up in a twist/bun thing, and I didn't have on a crown, but I felt too mature and old so I put my hair down and decided my rose crown would be a nice touch. I hate shaving my legs so I tend to shave them like, once every 2 weeks. Who on earth would actually pay attention to the shaved-ness of someone's legs? Only super weird people. I just don't really care if my legs are stubbly. It's a stupid thing to worry about.
