i live in kentucky. in one of three most noteable cities. fashion here sucks ass.
i dont really fit in with 95% of the people here. ky girls wear sperrys uggs american eagle and wetseal all day everyday. or either they are complete rebel emo and shop at hot topic pacsun and journeys and skate. and to top it off im constantly being judged by older women who wear only sag harbor and cato clothing, so naturally im constantly fighting everyone around me just to be myself.
i believe in experimenting. at least if it didnt look good you'll get a good laugh out of it later. but in my family everyone feels they need to give theyre opinion and once they give it you should conform. um no. there. i said it.
now a couple months back i went to a wale concert here, and finally discovered the rest of the stifled fahionista population of ky. i felt so at home. i took my brother and his friend to the concert and when we got back later that night my brother told my mom, "i know you think jackie is weird and dresses funny, but there is a whole other population of people out there just like her that she fits in with." him sticking up for me like that almost brought me to tears. cuz its been such an uphill battle; me against the world. its good to know who has your back. a week later i found chictopia.com now i am sooo much better. i have proof to show anyone who thinks im crazy, hey this is whats happening in the fashion world. people are taking risks with expression and creating beauty. so. suck on that!
