No Explanation Necessary
2. I loved my updo for the day. I did. I thought it was very pin up and vintage - even my 'I-think-you-look-silly-most-of-the-time' boyfriend even complimented my hair do. It was a big day.
Perhaps this seems vain to some, and maybe it is to a small (or large) degree, but I don't consider it vain. I was raised as a tom-boy: putting on very little, if any, make up in high school and doing nothing with my hair but washing it. I realized I never felt special. I never felt not-special either. I just was idle.
Although, I don't think men, or women take enough time with their appearance now-a-days. I have seen people wear casual pieces and they looked stellar. It is all in the confidence and comfort level of the individual. I am more confident when I have my hair curled, my eyeliner on and am in a dress. Others love t-shirts and jeans. I don't. I have very strong opinions about jeans. Blaugh. Jeans are the gateway drug to sloppy.
To me: Jeans, flip flops, T-shirts. Normal. Standard. Boring.
