Why this look makes you feel good: I don't really get a lot of chances to really express my personal style, as current time is a struggle and I'm broke. But, sometimes I get inspiration from clothing I bought a long time ago for a special occasion, and I add it in with other daily things I wear all the time to really make myself more confident. I'm genderfluid, so sometimes I wake up feeling really feminine, sometimes I feel like dressing kind of boyish, and sometimes I simply don't care. I once tweeted Mitch Grassi of Pentatonix saying, "You've inspired me to say f*ck you, to gender rules. I want to start trying out men's fashion. Please open a clothing line," and he replied saying "YESSS" and encouraged me to really go for it. I felt a lot of support from fellow pentaholics and people like me. I've never felt closeted, or ashamed of who I am. So, this look was inspired by Mitch Grassi's style. It's always what I've felt really comfortable in when I feel more boyish.
If someone tells you that your heart, your personality, or your gifts are wrong, or they shouldn't be expressed, remember that their voice is nothing compared to yours. You feel how you feel. F*** everybody else.

"Having a dress code for the majority of my life, I felt like my fashion sense was being bullied. Not being able to express who I was through what I wear, and how I wore my clothes truly effected me. I felt like I could not be me. To me, there was nothing worse than not being able to be creative and explore the many trends that the fashion industry brings the world everyday. Now that a dress code does not exist in my life, feel nothing but free to truly display who I am, and how the fashion industry has effected the person that I am beyond what I wear. I now, live and breathe the color black. There’s no other color that makes me feel so good, and so Me. Like Coco Chanel said, ‘The best color in the world, is the one that looks good, on you!’ "

"I was about to submit an outfit where I just so happened to be dolled up, dress, and was wearing the typical "I can’t walk in these" heels. Then I remembered, this is not what Your Feel is about. Your Feels is about feeling you, not that in that outfit I wasn’t representing the very essence of who Anak is but was I really going to comfortably do all the things that I do on a regular basis such as run around like a crazy monster, dance in the street and all those things that in general requiere movement in fabulous shoes that unfortunately I had to change into sandals in after fifteen minutes? The pictures above/below (I don’t know how the set up is going to be, HAHA) simply show me feeling good. I’m not very good at clearly explaining things but I don’t know if you have ever been in an experience where you feel happy with yourself and have the tendency to exclaim so good! 50 times at anything that happens during your day even if that little thing happens to be smelling 50 bottles of hand cream at L’Occitane; something that did happen on the day these pictures where taken. Whether it was the clothes, the shoes, the memories, or the haircut I got on that day, the immediate thought that pops into my brain thinking about the time I wore this outfit is so good!”

This look makes me feel good because it makes me feel effortless. I may over due my cutoff and fringe bootie combination but, it’s what I like. It’s comfortable and represents my personality. This look also makes me feel like I am putting out a positive imagine that I want the world to see.
