The outfit I’m wearing in the above pictures made me feel comfortable and confident. It was overly masculine and yet at the same time I felt attractive in it. It’s an outfit (and hairstyle) my mother would disapprove of. It is an outfit my husband told me I look cool in. Both of these things meant I loved it more!
I have spent most of my adult life being told I am “cute” if I ever get a compliment and I hate it. My personality is not cute, I don’t want to be seen as being cute. I find being called cute more offensive than being called fat. I identify with being fat – I am fat. But cute? Nope. Maybe it’s because of the connotations of the word “cute” – to me it means pink and girly and overly feminine. It conjures up images of giggly girls who read Mills and Boon and all they want is their knight in shining armour to come along and rescue them. No thank you.
What about you? Is there an image you wish to portray? Do you often get called a compliment you feel doesn’t fit your personality? Have you ever worn a random outfit that has made you feel amazing?
