My dear, you are not overdressed! Other people are underdressed.
I like to dress up, wear high heels combined with crazy items etc. For other people it can look quit ‘different’ and ‘strange’. Because most people live their life with the quote: ‘act normal, and then you’re crazy enough’. They don’t like or wish to stand out so they dress safely and they blend in. This means that when I’m in walking around with this outfit for example in a busy crowd that everyone stops and stares like I’m a zoo animal. Then I start to think like: come on people, is it really THAT different how I look!!? Because when I look in the mirror I do see a legging with two tones and a heel that is kinda strange but I don’t see what the big deal is. So when this rude staring contest begins and I see people whispering and pointing (yeah it was really that bad) then I help myself to remember a important lesson that my father taught when it comes to style and clothing:
‘You are not overdressed, other people are just underdressed! You can’t help it that other people look like crap so you shouldn’t adjust to that’. And it is true. Just because other people wish to wear a jeans with a sweater every day and find that normal, safe clothing behaviour shouldn’t mean that you can’t dress the (crazy) way you want. I personally always find it so refreshing when I see people dressing in an unique way on the streets.
