What’s Your Attitude to Fashion?

I’d like to share my attitude to fashion.

I’m a bit on the plump side. I don’t fit in those Barbie doll clothes everybody wears. That’s why I see myself as a black sheep but I don’t mind it too much. Black sheep are simply different, so what?

Most of the girls in my class are fashion victims. They wear tight clothes and spend all the breaks browsing from fashion magazines that tell them what is in and what is out. I’m definitely not in because I always wear XL T-shirts and sweaters.

I like romantic comedies and reading so I am also a bit of a dreamer and a bookworm. The others often tease me and they call me a weirdo. I have all sorts of problems because of my weight, believe me. Luckily, I am a fighter and I have an attitude. I know exactly where fashion is on my priority list – at the bottom.
