Ohmigoth, you guys, I have guest posts and interviews coming out of my ears! Thanks so much!
Mum was... not pleased.
Which struck me as odd, considering she puts up with and often encourages all my other random acts of aesthetic self-expression. In fact, I can list on the fingers of one hand the things I have done that she disapproves of. Please bear in mind that I have previously had blue hair, I have seventeen piercings, and am currently growing out my undershave. Yet my mother has only expressed disapproval towards:
- my tongue stud. I was actually forbidden to get my tongue pierced. Being sixteen at the time, I went ahead and got it done anyway.
- my tattoo.
- apparently, my lack of eyebrows.
Garments such as bloomers and corsets are areas of consternation for some parents - my mum originally worried that if I went to work in bloomers, old ladies might be alarmed by me, effectively, running around in what would have been underwear a few decades past. Many parents feel that corsets (and fishnets) give too sexualised a message.
It's funny how everyone has different things that they will and won't accept. "One man's meat is another man's poison," as they say. I was wondering if anyone reading this has had clashes with their parents or other family members over odd things like eyebrows (or lack thereof), or bloomers. Or if anyone's family had seemingly strange rules about what they will and won't permit.
By the way, are you bored of these daily outfit posts yet? I'm worried I may be overdoing it a little this week. In any case, here's me off to work yesterday. I wonder why people are sometimes surprised to learn that I often act as shop manager...
