Title: I feel SO YESTERDAY
Post by: Lizzeh-wa on May 22, 2011, 12:02:27 PM
What kinds of things do you think are cool?

How do you feel about the Fashionable antifashion? (okay I made that up, but what I mean is like Innovators/trendsetters makeing un-cool and plainly hideous things fashionable.)
 
Are You an Innovater?

Get annoyed when Trendsetters pick up a trend they'd been making of you for fer ages?

Wanna dye someone's head purple?

Basically I wanna have an awesome fashion chat! (I keep a picture journal of things I think are cool. Because I'm a loser.. I even did it before I read the book, so uh, I felt less losery)

Post wicked pictures of fahionable/unfashionable/cool things you see here (idk if it's a pic u took, or internet-found, or whatever I'm cool)

How did I not see this until now? DDDDX

I definately don't follow the trends. At all. I prefer keeping my own style. (I've gotten into the habit of carrying around a parasol. Don't think you'll find that in the fashion magazines anytime soon. XD)

Thas wicked. =P I fall into the hopeless category of, like, logo exile (there is nothing really cool about me at the moment, except my bracelets, but everyone does that now.). Innovater as far as when it comes to the way I talk. =P I use idioms that have died, like - the bomb, peachy, wicked, bro, Sh*tF*ckBananas (ok I made that up btw).


Omg Saw some sweet glasses online :

I like alot of different stuff. Things from thrift stores and things from certain mall stores. So I guess sometimes I am a trend follower, but sometimes I'm not. And I would love to dye simeones hair purple. Any volunteers?
yes, sooo much!! ive blue highlighted my hair, but dyeing it purple would be even more awesome

I currently have a shoelace obsession. Every day when I come to school, my bestie asks how my shoes are laced. Also, I can be a bit of a Logo Exile. But only if the logo shows and is prominent. I refuse to pay to be a walking advertisement! =3

I recently wore all the Harry Potter stuff I own to school every day for a week. I don't care what people think of the way I dress. I am definitely an Innovator.

So this topic is really old, but I thought it would be the perfect place to rant about something that happened to me the other day:
I was out shopping when I came across these two girls. They were both wearing different versions of the same outfit (skinny jeans, band t‘s, facial piercings, and black hair with brightly coloured streaks). I swear, there are hundreds of these kids around here and everywhere else. Anyway, they were both ranting about how they couldn‘t wait until school was over because ‘omg all the other kids who wear that crappy popular clothing are so mean to us because we‘re different!‘ and ‘it‘s not out fault we‘re non-conformists!‘ and blah blah blah. Needless to say, I started laughing really hard and they both gave me a death glare :p

The moral of this story? You probably aren‘t as unique as you think you are. and seriously if anyone wants to talk dressing ‘differently‘ they should come to Auntie Rai because like really you kids

Have you seen anyone else with a Time Turner, robe, wand, and pygmy puff? I think that's pretty original :). Several things that I've done for years people have started copying though. The upside is that people don't tease me for it anymore, but it's not my thing now  :(

Also, saying it's not your fault you're a non-conformist doesn't make sense. If you are a non-conformist, it is your fault, actually. You choose to be a non-conformist, therefore it is your "fault." ???

I was just saying, most of us go through that phase where we think we‘re soooooo different, but then we grow up and realize we‘re not (I sure as hell went through it Dx). Heck, even today I don‘t consider myself that odd or whatever.

Sucks about people teasing you, though. (Oddly enough I was never teased for what I wear :I)

Yeah, there's definitely people like that I know.  :-\  Pretty annoying, actually.

Vans are off the wall -- the only big branded thing I like xP
I have died my hair purple ^^
Used to wear jelly bracelets all the time -- kinda miss them, but not enough to wear them again.

I don't like anything big named, like Aero or Forever 21, or Macy's -- none of that stuff is worth the price plus it won't fit anyone over size negative 3. -_-

^^I remember your purple hair c:

So because I‘m bored and shallow I feel the need to list what makes me an ‘innovator‘.
~ I‘ve dyed my hair a hundred billion times, and now I wear wigs (in bright colours) so I can change my hair on a whim.
~ My wardrobe staples consist of petticoat enhanced skirts, corsets, and tons of odd and funky jewellry (or so I‘ve been told :I) AND HEAD-EATING BOWS. AND BONNETS. AND MY BELOVED PARASOL. AND RIPPED UP FISHNETS. AND STRIIIIIPES. AND-
~ I have several piercings and a tattoo... but okay that‘s not really super innovative

And that‘s about it. :I

I miss my purple hair!

And I loves your sense of style -- the things you wear are not odd, they are breathtaking and the way you present yourself (your attitude), is spectacular! ^_^

I dress either to show my obsession with something (i.e. a book) or just cuz it's comfy or convenient (always many pockets...) Right now I'm making a robe thingy covered in quotes from all Scott's books  ;D
