“But, it does stop some people from dressing the way they want to.”
“It puts that seed of doubt in their mind, like ‘Oh my God, are people going to judge me?'”
“So, in honor of, I don’t know, “dressing like a teenager,” here’s my outfit for the day.”
“I have on Hello Kitty Doc Martens, little jeans, a belt, and I French tucked my t-shirt.”
