crisis. I don’t even have a particular style, it’s just a
mix of stuff…Whenever someone asks me what my style is, I feel a
sudden urge to slap them in the face and run.
closet has become a stew of floral, and neon, plaid and leather, and
baggy and tight, girly, and androgyny and Oh My God, even those
Mango high heeled shoes I bought, because I had a tooth ache and walking
around in high heels seemed less painful than pulling out my tooth.
put a label on someone is like sealing him in a convenient package, with a
paper sticker glued on, with words like : “Goth, Hippie, Boho, Casual” and
shoving it down society’s throat.
understand that we need categories and labels so we can make sense of
our world, so we can organize and control our reality, but I find it too
limiting and demanding.
This is why,
with a bit of resentment I must confess that I’ve decided to change my
style completely, and try to incorporate a more grunge sense to it. I
say, with a bit of resentment, because the mere word “grunge” makes me
twitch. Because what the fuck is grunge exactly?
if I wear something that is not grunge, but by labeling it grunge, it
becomes just that. And what if I start defining my style as grunge and
people start talking bullshit like: “That’s not grunge, you’re’ so commercial!”.
But I’ve made my decision and despite what others say, I’ll be pushing my style towards a more grunge feeling and I know it’s going to be a slow transition, and I’m gonna suck at it. But nevertheless, bare with me 😀
How do you guys define your style? Do you like it? Have you ever wished to change it?
