sweetcandylove 's Thoughts:

I often envy people living in other countries where they can wear whatever they want and nobody bats an eyelash. In our country it’s a different thing. People tend to stare, make snide & snarky comments or laugh when someone is wearing something out of the norm. We do not have a healthy street fashion going on here. I mean when your public transportation & security sucks like ours. You wouldn’t be caught dead wearing short skirts, blings & what knots. I don’t know. You also need to dress up appropriately when going to the different malls! One can dress wildly in Rockwell me thinks but definitely not in Mega Mall. I think it all boils down to the demographics of the place one goes to.

I so agree with what you said! People here aren't that used to outrageous outfits...just a t shirt and jeans, which is too boring to wear everyday. The best thing to do is just ignore them. haha. Btw, I am in love with ur shoes!!

I totally feel you. It's so funny because here in davao SM is the chicest mall. And I do dress to the max when I go there. Ppl tend to stare when I wear boots, heels and platforms. Arrrrgh!

Yeah, it saddens me that in our country, you have to consider and reconsider whatever you want to wear, or you'll be receiving weird stares saluting you. I wish being fashion forward would be normal here:(

I know exactly what you mean! It's just like that here, and I live in California, where most people think it's super... liberal (in terms of fashion). I really love your outfit, it has the small and subtle touches of out-of-the-norm-awesomeness. :)
sweetcandylove
sweetcandylove on January 04
really? i thought people in the US are liberal in terms of dressing. :) thanks for the kind words.

lovelyy, love the combination! i totally understand about the not-fashion-friendly country, but you shouldn't care. you shouldn't care (except when it comes to security factors perhaps.. ^^;) dress differently in a good way is never a sin.
sweetcandylove
sweetcandylove on January 04
thanks. yes, i know it's just been bothering me for sometime this thought.

When i see people like like you ... I said: " OMG!!! look at that girl! I love her clothes!She's so stylish!!!" I hate people that his job is to criticize the other ... My motto is if you do not have something nice to say, shut up your mouth. So the world would be better. Indeed, Your clothes are amazing!! Love the shoes!!! (Sorry for my English) xx
