20. In what way is this stuff important, if at all?

it represents my values and that makes me comfortable on top of feeling comfortable too. my jewellery is as stated my favourite thing as they're so lovingly crafted and make me smile every day. it's a little 'pygmy' twisted around my right hand, so detailed it has a belly button and two lady 'dwarf's wrapped around my other hand with such detail and wabi-sabi. (that's the names the artist calls them)

I don't really know.

varies by my mood
one day I love having choices
next day- sell it allstudents

It's important as a source of joy, a linchpin of identity for ourselves and in our communities, as a negative identifier, as a connection between generations, as signifier of attention, rebellion, sickness and wellness. A visual and tactile culture.

For me its about my Identity.

I dont think dressing is that important but noticing it can reveal a lot of interesting things about people.

Important because its comfy and functional. Unimportant because I don't really like what I am wearing. Its not what I feel is my "style" but it is what I have and it works.

It describes my personal touch and view of fashion - I like my comfort.

It's posited as an expression of self hood, which is a considered an important story in a capitalist society.

You project a certain energy and attract a certain type of person. I like feeling like I can be whoever I like. The clothes make the man, like Mark Twain said.

feels good

Very important. It is the way I present myself to the outside world. It is the way I curate what I put my body in.

Armor. Decor. Expression. Identity.

Thinking about how I express myself in relation to how I feel can teach me a lot about myself.

It's important to whomever it brings joy and purpose to. Fashion is only mildly important to me. To my twin sister, it's a huge part of her life. Making outfits is something she gets passionate about, and it brings her confidence. So it depends on the person.

how you choose to dress says a lot about what's important to you and gives a glimpse into what kind of person you are.

It's really not, although I do think my clothes are a reflection of who I am. It's not the most important reflection of who I am, but it's still one nonetheless.

it isnt

It helps me to overcome my stress and depression.

It shows who I am....comfortable in my own skin & what you see is what you get!

It makes me feel good about myself.

It makes me the person I am.

i enjoy the design element of dressing and the tactile nature of making and wearing clothes. there's also social and political implications for how dressing happens- who benefits and who doesn't.

I love my baggy trousers for days when I really can't be bothered to make an effort or if I'm studying all day and just want to be comfortable.

How we present ourselves and how we perceive ourselves is a part of who we are. The more we talk about this stuff, the better perspective we can have on it.
Presentation is a form of power.

what is 'this stuff'? but i think fairly?

These leggings are my main bottoms at the moments since I'm taking both yoga and dance on different days. My T-shirt is special to me because it' from my old dance studio, where I danced for over 10 years. I never wear makeup (except for a costume). I spend enough time designing outfits that I feel like I don't need to spend even more on makeup. Also, I've observed how once a girl gets into the habit of wearing makeup, she (and the people around her) begins to think she looks wrong without it. I don't want that pressure for myself.

Anyway, I cannot be naked. And it speaks of who I am to some extent.

I knit the sweater myself. I like a lot of these jeans (dark colour, good fit) and I often wear a pair of black boots, these or some other pair.
