I enjoyed reading your article! :))When people say to me that "Your overdressed!" I usually smile and say "Thank you!" as if they gave me the highest of compliments.

It's taken me about twenty years, but I've finally learned to accept rude comments about my clothes with grace. Now when my brother tells me I look like a weird character from a Tim Burton film, instead of calling him a jerk, I smile and say thank you - because really, whether he meant to or not, he basically told me that I look unique, and I would much rather look unique than normal any day!

This article is fantastic! I feel like it should be printed on the sides of busses and on fliers to hand out to the world- so many people need to realize these things! I love how you write, and this article had me laughing out loud but yet reevaluating how I dress, and whether I dress for me or not. And my favorite part was the girls at highschools dressing like hookers- so true! Thanks!

thank you for this article, you just made my day. I live in such a small town that whats style-ish here is blue jeans and a Holister t-shirt. Don't get me wrong that's fine but it's not me and I always have to deal with the stares with I wear my crazy tights or a cute blazer. Another reason I love this site, again thank you for writing this.

queenwren: I know how you feel! I get a lot of stares for dressing in my own style where I live. I love Chictopia because it embraces all sorts of unique styles. :)

LOVE IT! A common thing among women is wearing those same pieces that seem to be the trend instead of their true selves. I remember working in retail and seeing the same type of customer walking in with her tiffany heart bracelet, Louis Vuitton speedy and wearing their Chanel Chance perfume. Come on! Is that really you or you thinking it should be you? Embrace your individuality!

I also feel that most of the time the biggest critic is yourself. I admit I get scared of wearing certain things at school,but then I take a big gulp, I do it and then I get compliments that make me feel much better. It pays off to take the risk.

Speaking of those "incredible harem" jeans, where can I buy them? ;_;
rachelias13 on January 24
I can't find them for sale on the website. I want jeans like them so badly...ahhh!
looney_lovegood on January 24 They're to die for, right?
