When I was younger I tried to have my own sense of style. I wasn’t following the trends and did things with my own twist - a little bit. There were a few fun memories of people asking “What are you wearing?” I even had a couple of people say, “I wish I had the freedom to dress as carefree as you.” Maybe that was a hidden insult. I took things to a certain level but usually not too far.
My favorite outfit memory is from the day I met my future in-laws. I arrived at their huge house in the ritzy part of town wearing a thread bare Rolling Stones t-shirt and shorts I bought for $0.75. These jean shorts were shredded and covered with ink and paint. The best part of the shorts was a paint hand print on each ass cheek.
So I get to their house and find out that my guy isn't there. Great. We had been dating for only about two weeks. They took one look at my outfit and were not impressed. Mrs. Future Mother In Law called me Lisa - not my name and their little furry dog tried to jump up on the couch and hit me in the face instead.
Good times, good times.
I loved that outfit. The t-shirt was an actual Rolling Stones concert t-shirt. Not one bought from Old Navy.
My point is…. what??? I wish I had taken things a little further, been bolder, crazier.
If you are young and able to be daring - go for it. I for one would give anything to be young enough to wear the hair style P!nk has in the boxing scene of this video.
