just b/c you are 'cheap' doesn't mean you are not into fashion lol. well obvo style and fashion aren't the same but they go hand in hand. i'm kinda cheap also i love the thrift store... div>
It seems that if you're going to make a statement (which was never my goal) then it has to be an ''in'' statement. Else, you have a parade of people behind you drawing more attention to how ''ridiculous'' you look and I'm just not that into fashion to forge ahead. I have other things that I'm more passionate about and more willing to stand up to mockery for. Being called out and laughed at is tiring and you have to pick your battles.
I've never aimed to 'fit in' with what I wear but it's crazy when you're followed and mocked; when you can hear people laughing at you behind your back. It makes you angry inside that people are that shallow and I'm not an angry person. I don't think the world is full of evil people. When I was dressing in a way that drew so much attention it made me feel angry at the world and I didn't care for that.
