"RIDIN' DOWN A HIGHWAY, GOIN' TO A SHOW".

Listening to: It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock And Roll)- AC/DC

I've been toying with the idea of putting my hair in a neat top bun for a while now, and yesterday I finally went through with it- all thanks to a photo Kelly Osbourne put on twitter (that girl is an absolute babe and cannot do a thing wrong). I can't stress enough how neat my top bun is- I carefully pulled and clipped it back to avoid that messy I-just-got-out-of-bed-and-look-like-I-should-go-back-to-the-bush-I-walked-through-and-hide top buns. Everyone seems to wear them but I just don't have a clue why anyone would think they look good. I really hope my hair looks as neat and pretty in these photos as it did in real life.


 Cut-out tunic: Topshop
Cardigan: Primark
Earrings: Topshop
Bag: gift
Socks: Primark
Shoes: American Eagle- but actually bought from a charity shop.

I wore this outfit to go shopping for holiday clothes with my sister- but not only did we leave pretty much empty handed (I only bought flip flops!) but she also left in a bit of a mood. Not for anything either of us done but because people would not stop looking at me. I mean people quite often stare, and I get a fair few comments but I suppose I have got used to it in the last few years- where my sister has not, and as such all hell was let loose. The comments she passed when ever someone looked at me/ passed comments was hilarious! and shouted it as close to people faces as possible.

Although I do realise I am far from fashionable- and my style is far from normal- but I always felt I looked good. Now I'm  not sure if I deserve the looks/comments or not. I would be lying if i said that this experience has lead me to go through some sort of image change; as I don't want to- I like what I wear and the image I try to throw out (thick eyebrows and all)- and I honestly would not know where to start.

I guess I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

  1. Awh, that totally sucks, don't let it get you down! It happens to me all the time, but I just find it funny.
    Usually it's in the form of un-abashed staring, like the kind where you can see the person's head swivel to keep an eye on you and that can be sometimes coupled with a slightly disgusted face.
    I get the occasional comment about my hair as well - usually nice but sometimes rude/vaguely offensive, but again it doesn't really miff me which is the attitude you should take since you look aawwweeesssoommmeee (said in a high pitched voice). :P

    1. Thank you :) I'm so glad in not the only one thus happens to- like my sister so unashamedly shouted at people "why do they have to stare?!". Do people who dress differently not deserve respect or something?

  6. I personally think fashion is about wearing clothes that make you happy and feeling comfortable in yourself!
    If you think you look great, then you look great!
    I personally love that dress and your hair!

    If people want to judge, let them.. just ignore the comments because it really isn't worth your time!

  8. Well I think you look gorgeous! Where I grew up everyone dressed like TOWIE girls and I used to (and still do) get loads of negative comments. A lot of people are like sheep and can't deal with people that look a little different because they're small minded and shallow. Ignore em, you look amazing! xxx
