To each their own.

Conformity.

Christian Louboutins for Lydia, costs the most money and a piece of dignity.

Comme des Garçons work jacket that has been sacrificed to e-Bay.

Combat photographer in WWII.

Who is your dream date?
Lydia. I mean you really have to meet her.

King Leopold's Ghost - based on the colonization of the congo.

Be original, be yourself, if you wear a certain style put a bit of yourself into it so you don't look processed.

I stopped buying items that I can live without and started making plans to become Bonnie & Clyde.
