--why are you so interested in fashion?
people around me don't understand that fashion can be a major hobby...and i am totally obsessed. i just love it...buying the clothes, getting bargains, planning an outfit, getting compliments (or sneering looks, doesn't matter which). a couple of girls once looked over at me with ugly sneers on their faces and i thought, well, sorry if we don't all go around in jeans, plain tops and a scarf. well done, you.
