caitlinaftermidnight 's thoughts:

I wouldn’t define myself as your typical IT Girl… For starters, im only sixteen and limited to a budget on minimum wage and don’t really have much experience with “designer” clothes. However, I’m not afraid to express my personal style. I have always been unique and showing off my individuality is just part of my personaliy whether it be hippy bohemian or rockerish street chic. Every day I dress up for school and I’m pretty much the only one willing to push the envelope beyond the traditional sweatpants and t-shirt combo. I believe my style is a way for me to express who I am to others and explore different aspects of my personality. It does come at a cost though. Other kids my age don’t really understand why I dress differently. They aren’t exactly willing to “think outside of the box” in terms of fashion. So, it is undestandable that while walking through the hallways in stilletto boots and a blazer I get a few stares. The thing I am most proud of myself for is that I don’t let it bother me. I love dressing the way I do because it is truly who I am. Being limited to a minimum wage job and working only on weekends can be a bit tough when it comes to buying clothes however. So I find myself combining peices from my favorite stores like Forever 21 and H&M with really neat vintage items from Salvation Army and Goodwill. I alter them and change the peices that I thrift to match my style and work them into my wardrobe. For example in this outfit, the jean jacket vest used to be a dark blue but I decided to bleach it so I could achieve that faded rocker chic look. I believe that an IT Girl shouldn’t be defined by having the most expensive designer clothes but rather by her personality, her belief in the importance of fashion as a way to express herself. Being an IT Girl means to inspire others with individuality: a role model for fearlessness.

I totally agree! And as a teacher I'm right there with you shopping thrift stores and sales ( though I think I'd still shop like this even with lots of money :) ) Keep doing what your doing, and remember life gets better after high school!
