I have one question. Why are girls so concerned with being
and looking as cool as one of their friends? I prefer,
myself, to be
ultra-strange, retro, or just plain weird. For instance, I
black jeans with a neon green turtleneck and a fringy vest.
When I do
these sorts of outfits, I get stares from the 'cooler' kids.

GIRRRRL! Fashionable-less??? It sounds to me like you
are breaking free
from the mold-and that to me is super H I P ! I've always
told kids not care
about what other people think. I know this is hard to do at
your age, but it
sounds like you are being YOU and wearing and doing what YOU
do---which is important to YOUR happiness.
are probably only popular according to their clique. I'm
sure that the rest of the school despises them. These girls
only give you
dirty looks because they are afraid to be different from
Instead of starting trends, they wear what everyone else is
wearing so that
they can feel accepted.
I must applaud you for your moxy
and your courage.
It's important to know who you are, but it's more important
to be comfortable
with it. You keep doing what you're doing...it's people
like you that
funk-tafy up an otherwise mundane world! Thanks!

Unfortunately, Fashionable-less, not everyone is comfortable with who they are enough to be themselves. You are one of the lucky ones who appreciates who you are and allows that to shine through in your clothing. Fashion and style are not just about keeping up with the latest trends. They can both be outlets for your personal sense of creativity and imagination.
Chances are, those so-called "cooler" kids are rather insecure with who they are and feel they have to dress like everyone else does so as not to stand apart and be noticed. Enjoy your individuality. Remember that diamonds are so expensive because they are precious and rare; no two are alike. They are not manufactured, but rather they naturally occur in nature. Keep on being the rare and creative Fashionable-FULL person you are!

There are so many reasons these days as to why some
people want to dress
like their peers. Some of it stems from wanting to be
accepted, some people
dress the way they do because that's what they like...just
like you. You know
as well as I do, that people are often separated into
different cliches. In
these different cliches you are often judged by how you
dress and what type
of music you listen to.
Being in fashion is not neccessarily
new trends or fads either. It's about creating your own look
confident about it. Just as you have done yourself. The
weird stares and
funny looks are only because they probably wish they could
wear something as
intricate and get away with it like you can.
don't bother with
the stares. People who are dense enough not to have an open
fashion are totally not worth your time! Yes, people are
allowed to have
their likes and dislikes...but one perspective to being a
"Fashion Diva" as
we like to call it here at DailyFashion.com, is being able
different looks and possibilities from all forms.
worry about those
fashion-party poopers! Keep being yourself...and hey you
could even enjoy the
stares..knowing that you're different from everyone else and
that you're not
afraid to be you!
