Since my teens, I've pretty much been dancing to the beat of my own drummer; in fact, I can genuinely remember the one and only time in my teens I liked a fashion trend, rather than just wearing what I liked (Leanna and others from the UK may remember the slouchy boots that were generally worn with mini skirts - that was the first time in a long time I'd worn a skirt).

Anyway, the point I'm attempting to get at (badly, of course ;) ) is that - at least as far as clothes are concerned - I've not been "mainstream" for a long time, and I'm used to getting looked/stared at as a result, so I wasn't that nervous last Saturday when I decided to wear my new Lana dress (in the firework print) to the make up practice appointment for my best friend's wedding.  It was a nice day, but still seemed a little chilly, so I paired it with a dark purple shrug, along with nude stockings and black-and-white print wedges (which are now on eBay, because they gave me a blister for the first time ever, and I don't like that).

I'd been out of the house less than five minutes, and I almost caused an accident (well, maybe I exaggerate, but the situation meant an accident could have easily occurred), because of one guy who was pulling out of a junction and leaned as far across his car (and the passenger in it!) as he could to stare at me...*that* was new, being stared at not only in such an obvious way but also being stared at for so long...needless to say it was also kinda creepy :-/  Thankfully, that was the "worst" of the morning, I got lots of looks, but none as worrying/weird as that one...but it did make me wonder.

I wasn't brought up not to care what people thought of me, somehow that developed all by itself, but what if that wasn't the case?  Would I have been too worried to go shopping after the appointment?  Would I have put Lana away, never to be worn again?  Would I have sold her?  Would I even have bought her in the first place?  So many options, and all of them I'm so glad don't apply a single bit to me!

So, ladies, remember always to be yourself; and if people want to look - let them.  For letting others into our minds is a sure-fire way of becoming someone else
