I used to be really individual and wear whatever i wanted until i started getting the wrong sort of attention and people giving me looks. I used to get started on and rude comments and gestures as i was walking to work and back. People at work used to really appreciate what i wore as there was no one else that dresses the way i did. It started getting bad when people stopped me in the street and were rude to me.. e.g..
(1) I was wearring cream leather shorts, tan brogues, thick knit over the knee socks and aran knit cardi with my cream duffle coat.. I got stopped by 2 girls around the age of 15 and one called me a slag, the other one was stepping side to side so i couldn’t get past her and said ‘we don’t dress like that round here’ I said ‘and’ then just walked onto the road and passed them as they carried on shouting at me as i walked away.
(2) I was wearring a cream crochet knitted dress with a fitted cream under-dress with my leather jacket and military boots. A group of girls were behind me waiting for the train and one of them asked me what i was wearring. I replied ’it’s a crochet dress’ she said ’ it looks like my gran knitted it’ I just smiled and turned around. Then another girl said ’ is it inside out’ I said ‘no’ and she said ‘oh well it doesnt look expensive anyway.’
(3) I was wearring my topshop floral jumpsuit and some platform ankleboots when I was walking home from town with my gentleman and a pair of women started shouting at me saying why was i wearring a pair of tights as an outfit saying i was a slag and congradulating my gent on taking a slag home saying that he was definately going to get laid and that i was a ‘minger’ and ‘was i the best he could get?’
This is what i put up with day to day round where i live, I just want to be able to dress how i feel comfortable! It makes everything seem worth while when I’m working or out shopping and people compliment me and comment asking me where i get certain things from and asking ways to wear etc. Its nice that people are starting to appreciate the way i dress even though if i am honest i don’t put it out there as much as i would like to!
