As I've mentioned before, I come from a background that's not exactly fashion conscious. For the longest time I lived in t-shirt and jeans, which isn't to say bad, but I'm definitely more experimental when it comes to wardrobe selections these days. I am mostly going on instinct and a trial-by-error basis here. So unfortunately I don't really know what's right and wrong, or if there even is a right and wrong. When I discuss fashion choices with my friends I am always amazed at how they have self-imposed fashion rules and the rigidity with which they follow it by. When you read fashion and style blogs/magazines, there are always rules created by some 'god of fashion' - what's hot, what's not, trends etc. The point is, conventionally speaking, there seems to be some sort of code people, from the everyday person to fashion editors, dress by. What I wanted to know was where the line is drawn in terms of what is considered appropriate/pretty/ugly.
And with regards to your comment about my open-mindedness, wouldn't it actually be within character then to ask such a question if I am supposedly open-minded? To be acting out of character would be to denounce and write-off something or someone without question, no?
Blah blah. This post has gone on much longer than I wanted it to. I'm off to bed now.
