Let's try this again.
My name is Tabitha and I like clothing. I like shoes. I don't really like jewelry, but I'm trying to wear more. I buy hats because I think they look cute in the store, but never really wear them. Celebrity fashion becomes an obsession at times, but it's really pointless and a colossal waste of time. I have very few friends. I don't have a single article of clothing that cost me more than 100 dollars.
I don't really have strict like/dislike rules when it comes to fashion; there's pretty much an exception to every hard and fast rule that I have ever come up with.
I hate leggings. Hate them. They make everyone look stumpy and I've grown to associate them with fat ghetto girls in my neighborhood that wear them with tight denim minis and cropped hoodies. HOWEVER, I could get used to a pair of pvc leggings if someone presented them to me. Or maybe those cute silver leggings from American Apparel... yes, I know. This ship has already sailed and crashed head-on into a group of lazy hipster-scenexcore kids and burst into flames, smelling suspiciously of burning plastic and Tigi, but still. Sparkly...
Which brings me to my take on popular trends. There is no take. I am ALWAYS late in picking up a trend. It's not even really a matter of being skeptical. Skinny jeans. Oh my goodness. I don't remember when that started because I was too busy being thoroughly oblivious. Trends now? I don't know. Big plastic jewelry? Pencil skirts? I have no idea. Are leggings still fashionable? I remain utterly incognizant; stuck in the past.
I hate when people who shop at Hot Topic go around saying "my style is unique" and "my style is totally my own." How strange! It's virtually impossible to have a style that's completely your own, unless you are fortunate enough to have couture dresses made specifically to your exact demand (or if you made a blazer entirely out of your own hair of non specified origins). If you've paid for it in a retail store, chances are that someone, somewhere, might also have it. I shop at Hot Topic. I shop there a LOT. I also know that I am an exact replica of everyone I've ever met, everyone who has ever influenced me. I am a copy of millions of people, fashionwise.
Basically, I'm nothing special. Welcome to Sullen Girl, Part 2.
