I was chatting with some friends last night and the conversation went from talking about personal issues to fashion-related ones. Apparently, my friend thinks I`m a "highstreet" type of person which obviously, I was surprised to. Automatically, I asked my boyfriend about it and he agreed. It didn`t stop me there, I just needed more confirmation on this so I asked people on Twitter what they thought and the same answer came up in my interactions feed.
That wasn`t really my goal. My goal was just to inspire people that there are other options to just a shirt, jeans, and sneakers. I didn`t want to dwell on those items simply because I wasn`t raised to blend in; I was raised to stand out and my mother always tell me that image is everything. People won`t know how nice or smart you are at first sight. They`ll always judge you for your looks, always, and donning the right clothes, good makeup, and the perfect stance is always the key for respect from the people around you.
Sure, people might see me as "high street", okay, I`ll take that as a compliment. It just simply means the continuous lessons my mother teaches me are paying off. Believe me though, I never imagined myself or my style as high street because I`m very practical with my money. The high street is the last option for me to buy clothes. Thank you, though, for making me realize that my style doesn`t look cheap at all.
