Sometimes, you meet someone who just gets you. Angel's often said that the very first thing he noticed about me was that I dressed "weird". He's said, "I thought to myself, either she's too dumb to know what normal people dress like, or else she's a genius, and she's too smart to dress like normal people."
After getting to know me for a bit, he decided on the 2nd option. To this day he looks askance at some of my clothing choices, but he appreciates that I enjoy getting dressed, and he knows that all of my outfits make sense to me, even if they don't quite make sense to anyone else.
Many people might own a polka-dotted sundress bedecked with blue roses, and think--"This is enough of a statement piece. In the spring, I'll wear it with strappy white heels and a pastel shawl to keep the chill away."
A non-normal dresser will own the same sundress, and decide to wear it in February, paired with fuchsia tights and layered with a fuchsia t-shirt--and will add some black high-heeled boots to complete the look. And then pose for outfit pictures while sitting on pretty furniture at the supermarket.
The key to looking out of the ordinary is to put together items that you wouldn't expect to see worn at the same time. For example, punk-style leather and chain armbands with a lacey dress. Or pink and red and green and blue and purple and orange all at the same time. But even more important is to wear whatever you want to, regardless of whether other people would choose to dress like that or not.
Maybe this is why I don't like the idea of styling services at all. People telling me what I should and shouldn't wear together when I get dressed? No, thank you. I'm pretty darn sure real fashionistas would not like what I wear at all--but what's important to me is that I'm happy when I get dressed, and that's the only fashion advice I'd give to anyone: Dress in a way so that you enjoy the outfit you're wearing.
Oh, I would also add: Dress in a way that makes it look like you're not naked. Just because, you know. Clothes were invented for a reason.
