It’s only fashion!

Teens: seeing beyond the fashion choices


Shocked!  I was stunned silent for a moment.

Wear your own clothes day at school.

The LDS rock chick girl child walked in wearing t-shirt, flannel shirt, short shorts, tights with lots of holes, army boots, bandana and lots of eye makeup with a hair braid twist.

Kudos mum points for biting my tongue.

Thing is, she looked beautiful, it was just a shock.

“It’s only fashion, it’s only fashion, it’s only fashion” was my mantra as I wafted imaginary smelling salts under my nose.

She saw the face, she secretly and quickly packed a pair of black jeans, she changed at school.

Better than piercings.

Even with all the holes in the tights, she was mighty beautiful.
