Who would wear it better?

Hmmn, les dames are more likely to reason with me. In my last post, I wrote about how I paraded some clothes, including a skirt, for my mumcee and cousin to see. I was planning to wear the skirt later in the week and I was somewhat excited. You know that feeling you have when u're looking forward to "launch" a type of clothing you rarely wear.

This morning, I was brushing mes dents, a girl walked into the bathroom. Wearing what? The same skirt, I mean, same length, same pattern and same colour. I was like "really?" She was just "launching" her own also because the babe left the tag hanging behind. If not for my alert, she would have gone to the office like that. I was just looking at the skirt through the mirror. I began to think, "what if I had worn mine today and we met outside?". She lives across my hall and it's most likely that it is the same set of pple that wud see us. Hence, folks would start comparing in thier heads about who wore it better. I contemplated even dashing my cousin the skirt sef. But then, becos the other babe has the same skirt should not stop me from wearing mine. Rather, I have to wear mine at least presentably. Better still, I would wear it in a different style.

PS: That's why I don't like buying some stuffs from popular stores, e.g Forever 21. It was my friend that led me to it oh. Now, I have to challenge myself to avoiding what i really do not like doing.

oh well!

Wear your skirt oh.

Its really difficult to avoid wearing the same stuff as people with mass production et al you just have to be conscious of wearing it differently...better than your peers.

Haha I don't really mind actually!
But its true about the Forever 21 thing.But it depends on what you pick!

Adaeze said...

lol dont worry.. who would bother comparing u guys..Nah!

yinkuslolo said...

@lady x: anything that is obviously cute in forever 21 is a uniform but if it's something u have to style urself, it wudnt be that commone. i think.

@adaeze: haha, if i am one of those pple, i wud mentally compare with uttering it to anyone. like one of those times, u wud be like "oh, i have seen that skirt on someone before" and blah blah blah. i no send sha
