The outfit I wore today consisted of a plaid peasant-like dress, a t-shirt, stockings, and shoes. As I left my house in the morning, I thought that I looked rather cute and was quite proud of my outfit, but when I got to school it was somewhat the opposite; for guys anyway.
Girls would be like, 'Hey Zoë, you look so cute today! I love the dress," which of course made me very happy...but with guys..it was different.
As I sat at my desk in my first class of the day, one of my guys friends said, "Hey Zoë, do you live in a little house on a prairie??" Haha. Like the book. "You wish," I replied. At first I thought, whatever, he always makes fun of me, its just him. But I got similar remarks throughout the day. One boy said, "Hey Zoë, what time are you gonna milk the cows?"
No matter what they said, I still loved my outfit. Who cares? Boys don't understand fashion anyway. But it made me think; What does one usually do when their fashion sense is made fun of? Do you ignore it and wear what you wear? Do you rethink your outfit and change things up next time? Maybe you go and cry in a corner...what ever floats your boat I guess. What do you, the few readers of my blog, do when someone criticizes your outfit??
The dress I wore today was from the Urban Outfitters line, Urban Renewal. I know, I know, hardcore vintage fashionistas look down upon Urban Outfitters...They carry wannabe vintage clothes for 8x the price! I'd like a moment to defend myself about this...First of all, I wouldn't buy ANYTHING from Urban if it wasn't on sale...I mean, $50 for a sweater? Are you kidding? The quality is usually shit anyways. But Urban Renewal is different.
The Urban Renewal line takes old XXXL mens shirts that no one buys, and transforms them into cute and one-of-a-kind shirts, jackets, vests, dresses, etc. They are one-of-a-kind because of the fabrics; the sewing patterns and styles are the only thing thats the same about two of a given garment.
In basic speech, they are recycling!
Well, thats all for now, folks. Comments make me a happy little prairie girl. As Tigger always said, TTFN, ta ta for now!!
