I went to a baby shower today.. I thought I was going to be mad/sad because we are TTCing and I didn't know how I would react.. I was standing up for an hour in 3 inch wedges because there wasn't enough seats. Anyway I took it pretty well, it didn't affect me one bit that she was pregnant. The only thing that got me mad was well, I'm not gothic per say, but I do dress in black and I have a piercing, and tattoos and what not. Anyway she was like "oh yeah my sister is gonna dress the baby in black, like all gothic with black finger nail polish like scary , like a FREAK" I was right there just standing there like an idiot.. With MY black clothes, my piercing, my tattoos, my black/red hair.. OMG I was blushing and my face felt hot . She didn't even just say that once she said it TWICE. I mean come on, I'm the ONLY one standing up, so I stood out even more so she could tell what I was wearing, there were less than 20 people in the room. How can somebody talk about how awful it would be to dress like that, when someone is in the room dressed like that. I understand that she COULD have been joking, but I felt offended. I am probably overreacting, but I don't know. It just hurt, I don't judge the way ANYONE dresses. I respect their opinion on what they want to wear I mean it's just clothes it doesn't matter to me, but yeah I don't know Sorry if this doesn't make any sense LOL

It made perfect sense. I have had many remarks because of my piercings and tatts. I just finally gave up caring what people thought though.

(((HUGS)))
