Inspiration [Alloy] July 28, 2009

Filed under: Inspiration — patchesofsunshine @ 9:54 pm actually got me thinking about Autumn today.  Crazy.  I feel like that season is so far away seeing as So Cal’s Winter is like the Autums I’m used to and Winter feels nonexistent.


Apparently I’m liking navy and leather.

just a thought July 26, 2009

I’ve noticed that those who follow fashion get away with wearing things that would normally be deemed rather skanky.  Anyone agree?  I don’t mean that as insult to anyone.  Hell, I fall into that category now and then!  Sometimes, I feel like it gets taken a bit far though.

If you’re walking around in this dress during the day and it fits you tightly and rides up high… well, I don’t think you’re really asking to be respected.  No, we shouldn’t judge people by what they wear but we all know that the main argument against dressing “trashy-like” is that people will assume you are that way and treat you as so.

I just wonder if a person dressed this way would get angry if someone was to make the wrong assumption about them.   It’s something to think about.  Can a fashionable outfit still be considered slutty?

ps. Sorry if I insulted anyone with this. It wasn’t my intention.  A lot of what’s in style right now is short hemlines, tight skirts, cut out dresses etc and I just think they have a time and place (much as I love them).
