here are some outfit pics with the new lens. i kinda kicked matt's ass a little about how much he spent on it. but i've gotta say, the pics came out pretty decent...
i *really* love knee socks/ otk's. i wear them almost every day, just mostly not outside...
the problem isn't that i'm insecure. it's the rude men in my neighborhood, and all around nyc, who think it's okay to talk to women with no respect whatsoever. who leer as you're walking down the street, minding you own business. like you're putting on a special lingerie show just for them.
sometimes it can be kinda comical ("i love a woman in RED!!") other times, it leaves me with quite a slimy feeling. like i wanna punch the guy and throw up on him simultaneously.
admittedly it happens even when i'm not dressed in a "provocative" manner. but i feel extra exposed if i'm wearing a "sexy" outfit- and some people consider knee socks sexy. it makes me sad that i'm not able to express myself fully in my clothing choices, for fear of feeling threatened :(
but i decided i'm going to start getting braver and don them on my walks and journeys beyond the apartment... starting with this outfit that i wore to shop for groceries in!
eff the haters.
