Starlet or Streetwalker?

(If you don't watch Fashion Police on E! then this post title is probably making you go "what the fu??")
Metallic coat: ASOS// Sweater dress: Etsy// Glitter collar: my pal Chryssi made it!// Knee highs: Target// Bait shoes: won in a giveaway on Scathingly Brilliant// Satchel: Marshall's

I wore this--what I initially thought as cute--little number last month to sort of pay homage to two of my favorite movies: Pretty Woman & Clueless. But boy, did people look at me like I was strictly a streetwalker (what kinda hooker have you seen wearing pink bows and baby pink flats?!). All because of about 2.5 inches of exposed thigh. I felt all kinds of uncomfortable wearing this at the grocery store after I felt many a'pairs of eyeballs shooting death stares at me, mainly female ones. Which, I don't understand. Why are women such bitches sometimes? I mean, I could understand if my boobs were out so much that newborn babies were tempted to suckle, or if this dress was see through and I was wearing a thong, or if I was winking at the men that these women clutched onto so tightly, but clearly I wasn't. I was simply holding the hand of my husband and picking out which cereal I wanted: Fruity Pebbles or Cap'n Crunch (I went with the latter, obviously).
When I see a girl in a cute, out of the ordinary outfit, I actually go up and tell her that she looks lovely. But that's just me. I'm not saying that strangers should line up to commend me on my great fashion sense (though I wouldn't turn fans away ;)) , but jeez louise, if you don't like what I'm wearing is it really going to make you feel better to stare at me like I just killed five kittens?
Really, it all comes down to this: if you don't have something nice to say then shut the fuck up and look somewhere else. Right?

Note: I am not at all mad today, I was just recalling my emotions. Sorry that I had to use vulgar language. It was necessary.

Happy Friday!! And remember, be nice to one another, girls. <3

    1. hahaha I love you! :) No really, thanks. That's super sweet. Girl power for real. ♥ We need to learn to compliment each other more. It only takes a second, and it's free and it's always nice to make someone smile, I think.

    1. Thanks, girl. People don't have to like everything but certainly giving mean and ugly looks just makes them look like insecure assholes. lol

  5. That's so weird. Like that little bit of leg is going to corrupt everyone! ;) I think it looks great and it is so sad when women try and make each other feel small to make them conform.

    You look awesome! The bows on the dress are great.

    1. I really think that they must have thought I was trying to look like some slutty schoolgirl or something. But I thought that with the shoes I had on, the cambridge style satchel I was carrying, and the bow pockets on my dress, that they could see I wasn't trying to be Britney Spears in that "Hit Me Baby One More Time" video. I didn't expect someone to run up and be the Dion to my Cher (Clueless) but I thought my outfit was stylish and innocent enough. It honestly just boggled my mind how people looked at me that day. It was plain rude.
      Thank you for your comment, love. I appreciate it. :D

  6. Roni! I was so happy to see your comment on my blog! Ivemissed you girl, where have you been? That's so cool that you're moving to Florida! Ft. Myers isn't too close to Jacksonville but its more the reason for a road trip ;) . You look so darling as always and I am really happy to see you back!

    1. I have been here! Haha doing schoolwork and just chillin' out. I had forgotten about my blog for a while there and then when I'd remember it, it just felt like too much time had gone by to come back. But then I really, really missed the purpose it served for me. I missed documenting stuff, other than in my normal, more personal journal. So, voila, here I am again. :)
      Road-trips sound perfect! I hope we get to meet up while I'm there. If not, there's always San Antonio!! ♥

    1. Girl, you know I had to put my Mexican in check for a while because I really was about to start gettin' crazy up in there. But no, it was a grocery store and there were kids around. If we were in a bar or any other non-child setting, my eyes and mouth would have done some talking of their own. lol My friends know I don't play that shit up there! hahahah
