Read Surveys (By Question)

63. Is there a certain look you feel you’re expected to like that you have absolutely no interest in? What is it? Why aren’t you interested?

Smart, bohemian professionalism. It doesn't suit me and I know it. I always feel like I'm faking it, the way I did when I was a teenager and trying to be 'normal'.

I cannot get on the winged eyeliner bandwagon. I personally prefer a very natural makeup look.

No interest in looking like everyone else. Found a system that works for me and I stick to it.

A lot of elements in the fashion industry because it makes me feel like I am limited in my choice of what to wear - when in fact I would want total freedom of choice.

There's a whole cover-your-gray, erase signs of aging thing in LA that I don't follow. Although this city has made me more self-conscious about aging than I ever was.

I feel that after a certain age you are steered towards more conventional gear..I don't want to dress like a teen but I'm not ready for old lady land.

I am not interested in being sexy. I don't want to wear skin tight short clothes. Even when I was younger I didn't want that. It usually read as insecurity to me. And the girl comes off as vapid.


not really

I have no interest in the American Apparel vision of beauty, meaning anything skin tight. I have no interest because it is impossible to wear these things with the body that I have.

Cardigans. I don't get their appeal. They never fit right, they hang weirdly. They're hard to find in petite and they never make me look put-together.

The hip, quirky Brooklyn girl thing. I feel like I'm supposed to like it because 1) I live in NY, and 2) I'm a writer, but I just hate that whole look. It's always these skinny women with model good looks, and their clothes look like they came from Goodwill but definitely were purchased at Anthropologie for at least $50 more than what anybody should be paying. There's just something really pretentious and silly about it all. It comes across as a very expected uniform for people living under the misguided impression that they're unique, special snowflakes.

I don't pay attention to hairstyles, like not at all. I have a haircut I'm satisfied with, so I don't really think about it beyond that.
