Subverting fashion with age

"Fashion gives one the ability to feel like someone else or to internalise all the things one really loves so that they can feel exactly themselves, Tavi says. Unfortunately, to be so unapologetically original and unconcerned with being beautiful, in the hyper-sexualised world of junior high school, is typically met with fearful disdain by one’s peers. This marginalisation was at least the case for Tavi, at age 13, when she first found her voice and a large following of those also disenfranchised by conformity, looking to Tavi for her bold freedom and self expression on her blog, StyleRookie."
