Moving to New York and attending FIT is a giant ‘fuck you’ to anyone who was ever mean to you for being into fashion. So it only makes sense that your wardrobe will reflect that stance for a time. You will undoubtedly start to wear mismatched hosiery, tattered chiffon, and see-through shirts. Your parents will freak out and will try to haul you to the mall during Thanksgiving recess–just try claiming ‘artistic expression,’ and keep going with it. You can even show them this article and say, “Look! She ended up fine.” Everyone else will try to dress weird too, and you will try to outdo them and end up looking even weirder in the name of ‘avant-garde.’ But fear not: This will provide you with amazing photographic evidence to prove to your future kids that yes, you were once cool, too.
