"People constantly explain themselves to preserve how they'd like to be seen, even though they can’t actually control that. What other people think of me is none of my business"

Finding unique designs are difficult and I really don't have that much free time to go out and shop. I've been doing a lot of online shopping considering I'm on the internet 70% of my day. I mentioned a few posts back that my colorblocking phases come and go? Well it's back again. I think it's important to dress according to your personality and how you're feeling that particular day. Yesterday I was clearly feeling bold. I love the quote I posted above, it's incredibly relevant. The more popular my blog and I get, the more people expect me to be a certain way. They see a few pictures, read a few posts, and automatically build me up to be someone I'm not. Then when I'm not everything they want or portray me to be, they criticize and condemn like it's their place to. As if they know me personally, who I am, how I am, or what I'm going to be. If they knew anything about me, they'd know how much I don't value their opinions and views, how much I would never mediate who I am or what I say. I rarely explain myself, if I do, it's to my family and my one close friend Shevah. This is fair warning to everyone who consistantly writes me and has something to say, when you get no response, like you have been, that's merely because I have more important things to do than focus on negativity, as should you. You'd think through my pictures people would get the hint that I'm sure of myself, why they even bother beats me. The main point I'm trying to get across to my followers and supporters is that everyone is going to have something to say, don't change who you are, look, or act to fit someone else's idea of how you should be. You'll never get anywhere worth while being something other than yourself.

  1. love the cute little peek a boo cut out and although I am not much of a color person, I def would be willing to rock this dress.

  2. When I saw that quote in my reader it felt like destiny - one of my great beliefs is that people aren't doing things because they want to do them, but because they have a narrative of themselves they need to a. tell other people and b. uphold in their own and the eyes of others.

  3. Damn you're so hottt! (It's just a compliment, don't worry). i wish I could dress short dresses as you do...

  4. I love the text as much as I love the color blocking outfit. =)

  5. I completely agree with you. I guess some people just had the pleasure to spread negativity--well, just like they say: "Haters gonna hate". You rock, girl.
