Had a pretty interesting experience in this outfit...

"Miranda and I had been sitting at Barnes and Nobles, one of our favorite places to escape, when a man I was next to started talking to me. He brought up the fact that he liked my outfit; how I had constructed it with the contrasting textures, how I had broken up the harsh line of the boot with a thick pair of socks. He went on to explain how he looked for the same sort of aesthetic when he was doing his job of remodeling houses. This went on, for perhaps a little too long, and after thanking him, smiling, and him wishing me luck in my fashion journalism endeavors, I went back to reading(I think it was Classy by Derek Blassberg). And then, to my astonishment, he said one of the most degrading things anyone has ever said to me.. "It's funny, I would be horrified if you dated my son, but I appreciate how you dress.. I need to think about why that is". I'm 99% sure I smiled through it, looked down, and tried my best to not laugh and/ or cry. Miranda and I left shortly after, we were talking about what had just happened, and it was shocking that someone would say that. I couldn't tell if he was trying to compliment me or what, but it's interesting that someone who knows nothing about me could be so crass. And although it was hurtful, that was exactly it; he knew nothing about me, so why should I take offense to someone who's so quick to judge me solely by what I wear? I let it go, wished him well, and hope he learns you can't say whatever you think."
