I've always been told that I'm super dramatic and extra, which when I was little it made me feel very uncomfortable and doubt my self, but as I got older I understood that being my self and accepting me for who I am is okay.
Now I accept myself for my crazy, eccentric super dramatic self hahaha, and wouldn't want to change for anything...
I'm really glad in today's society we can be ourselves without the constant fear of humiliation! when I was younger that was not the case, which forced me to pretend I was someone I wasn't. Even though my mother always encourage me to be my eccentric self, I wouldn't dress the way I wanted outside of my house!!! So long story short, I call this outfit THE PAOLA LOOK because when my friends saw me wear this outfit they said "you would be wearing a fur scarf with a hat like that and thigh high boots! but where is the fur coat?" lol
