Often times I feel as though I am stuck in the past. Not necessarily the past of my own life, but the past of life in general. The way I dress, my ideals, beliefs, and thoughts are those of a girl in the 1950's. I've always thought I would have just fit better if I had been born oh, let's say in 1953 rather than 1993.
Today it was actually strange for me to wear such a modern outfit. I generally have people stare at me when I wear a vintage inspired look, but it is a stare of admiration. I was disgusted to be stared at today because of lust. Sometimes I don't even know how to dress like a modern teenager, but I'm glad I don't. When going to the mall a few days ago, I was shocked to see how sexualized and revealing the clothing is. What's more shocking is that teenagers actually buy these clothes. What ever happened to the peter pan blouses and circle skirts? What ever happened to the voluminous prom dresses with petticoats that brushed the floor? These items have been replaced with cleavage baring tank tops and mini skirts showing more leg than I'd ever care to see. These beautiful, elegant prom dresses have been replaced with tight, short, ruched stripper dresses.
What ever happened to dressing like a lady?
Ironically enough Matt and I watched the movie Back To The Future tonight. It really made me stop and think about the way our society dresses today. I stared in awe at the gorgeous dresses and hairstyles that the movie replicated from the 1950's. It was truly so inspiring. After watching the movie tonight, I made note in my head of something: to never stop dressing like a lady. I don't want to ever give in to dressing to please guys, or dress sexier to make myself feel beautiful. My girly, modest, retro dresses are perfect just the way they are.
Hope you all are doing well!
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. Goodness, I rambled too much today... I'm going to have to post my five things I love about blogging tomorrow! Oppsie :)
