Dear Adventurous Dressers:
I love y’all. You peeps are total eye candy. I am always thankful when I see someone with unique style. But if you’re dressing in an eye-catching way, don’t whine* when people stare at you. Hello! Thefreedictionary.com defines “eye-catching” as “to be attractive or different enough to be noticed by people.” So why are you surprised when people stare at your homemade tutu? Or snicker at your crazy leggings? Be real. People are going to look — and, admit it — don’t you kind of like it? My advice is to take sideways glances and even snide comments and outright insults as compliments. If you don’t have the guts for that, buy some t-shirts and jeans at the mall and go unnoticed.
Tough love from,
*There’s a difference between telling a great story (like this one) about people’s reactions and whining. All I can say is I know it when I see it.
