I rocked the stirrup pants as a 4 year old like no other 4 year old ever could.

I enjoyed reading this. I never thought about conformity this way.
This post makes me ponder.
I like your blog a lot.





LOVE!

We are all unique and different... Just like everyone else.

Those are the saddest eyes I've ever seen... Not even Dog can make sad eyes that sad... and he's a professional :(

I love it, and I agree. We all conform to some norm or another because we are all influenced by our society. Of course, I still get crap to this day for my choice style, but I don't really care. Quite honestly, I love style and hate fashion. The difference? Fashion is what one is told he should wear, whereas style is what one likes to wear merely because he likes it.

But don't go racing to jump on the bandwagon and off the cliff. That would make a big mess. ;)

My sister asked for stirrup pants for Christmas this year. From thrift stores only. She got a pair of velour green ones.

They're pretty fabulous.

And secondly, in response to that awesome final image..

LOL.

Alyssa said...

Am i insane to think stirrup pants arent THAT bad.... i mean they are pretty genius in that they cannot move in boots... and they are basically just tights with some elastic, and everyone loves tights... maybe stirrup pants deserve a second phase? :)

and yes, everyone is conforming whether they are trying to or not.

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! I love meeting new bloggers. I really like your "paper rant;" especially the drawing of the bangs because I definitely tried to get mine to look like that in second grade!

Becca said...

Okay I love this.
I'm so happy you commented on my site JUST SO I could come find you...and this.
SO interesting.
So true.
I laugh and cry, because I know I'm a conformist in some ways...who isn't? Everyone's a conformist in some form or another. It's kind of funny.
Thanks for making it obvious and laughable :)
