YES! I AGREE! that is actually what alot of people stereotype me as too, i guess i didnt put that there. truth is, i dont shop for clothes, like EVER
. maybe once a month, but even then i dont spend more than $30 at one time! Im a cheap skate so i go to all those recycled clothing or 2nd hand stores (thats probably why I hate to go clothes shopping--cause you really have to dig for a gem where i shop), but still, people are always telling me "maybe if you didnt buy all those clothes then you'd have money to save..." !!! grr! i have just enough clothes to wear a different mix n match outfit for 14 days! i happen to ONLY buy cute stuff i know ill wear on a daily basis so noone ever see's me dressing casually. i just have a certain style thats inspired by my love for historical fashion & body type.
"high maintenance" is another one...when i am able to get ready for something I need to be at in as little as 25 minutes. it really bothers me when others compare me to my best friend(basically my shadow), who dresses in nothing but a t-shirt, jeans, & sneakers, does the same thing with her hair everyday, and said people will consider me as "high maintenance." my friend, on the other hand, takes about 2 hours to get ready, & will not leave the house unless she has showered done all her prep work--EVER, & is intolerant to the arizona heat so during the summer doesnt leave her house until 8pm. sorry, im just venting now.
but despite all of this, im really social and funny in comparison to my bff, thats what my friends say, & for some reason i feel like the fact that i LOOK materialistic hinders people (especially guys T_T) from actually trying to form a relationship with me
my mind is so much more than clothes & food.
