Cardigan - Forever 21, tshirt - American Apparel, jeans - Delia's, shoes - Journey's
I'll write here because the pictures don't match. I feel like lately there has been much discussion about whether people with money dress better than people with less money, if you need money to be stylish, etc. The first thought that comes to my head is absolutely not! The majority of my school either wears expensive trash (Ed Hardy, Juicy tracksuits, etc.) or wants to wear expensive trash so they wear the Forever 21 version. But then I take a look at bloggers and people on Chictopia and some wear clothes that people on low budgets certainly would not be able to afford. Of course, there's the people who buy almost everything at thrift stores (I envy you SO much if you have good thrifting experiences), but there's some that have nice new clothes. I know that money doesn't equal style and style doesn't need much money, but it seems like everyone around me believes you need money to be stylish and it influences the way I think. And most of the people I know who are considered stylish shop almost exclusively at Urban Outfitters. They present their items really well which makes me want to buy everrrything and their clothes are cute, but they're overpriced. Why does everyone idolize celebrities when there's tons of better dressed people out there? Because they wear designer items? I think the best dressed celebrities know how to find cute stuff anywhere, but that's besides the point. I just feel like I need more inspiration and motivation to break free from this idea and do things my own way. My thoughts are all jumbled and I am just reminding myself that today is Thursday and tomorrow is finally Friday... and everyone in my grade will be going to the soph dance, but I didn't want to pay money to spend more time at my school and I couldn't find a date who would actually stay with me when I would inevitably want to sit down somewhere and just talk the whole time rather than dance to bad music.
PS I got my hair cut. I'm not as in love with it as I was last time, but I'm sure it'll grow in nicely and once I get some pomade or whatever that stuff is it'll look nice. I feel materialistic...
