Je suis un vilain garçon

Je suis un vilain garçon

Fashion

Om du inte talar flytande franska som jag (njae, långt ifrån faktiskt) så skulle den här tröjan inte vara mer än en snygg tröja med ett coolt 3D tryck. Det står dock egentligen för ”stygg pojke”. Visst, jag är inte pryd och har väl aldrig ens hävdat det, men tydligen finns det i den franska uppfattningen av uttrycket stygg pojke en underton av något sexuellt och smutsigt. Detta blev jag varse om när jag hade denna outfit på PFW och visst, modefolket hade inget emot den, men gamla damer på gatan tittade lite snett och ogillande på mig. Det gör mig faktiskt inget att folk stirrar då jag är van vid det, speciellt utomlands, dessutom hade jag faktiskt försett min outfit med en keps med varningstext. Så det så.

Men för att vara lite allvarlig så är jag varken en stygg eller elak gosse, tvärtom. Jag har aldrig varit inblandad i ett slagsmål och vet ärligt talat inte hur jag skulle agera i en sådan situation. Troligtvis skulle jag försöka snacka mig ur situationen och vara diplomatisk. Det har ju alltid funkat förr. Till skillnad från förr är jag dock inte en ”people pleaser” längre. Förr var jag så mån om att vara alla till lags att jag glömde bort mitt egenvärde och lät andra styra mina åsikter och mina handlingar till den grad att jag mådde dåligt av det. Det tillhör dock det förflutna. Numera är jag fortsatt diplomatisk, men utan att för den del rucka på mina åsikter eller värderingar. Jag lyssnar, tar till mig, men har ändå min egen ståndpunkt.

Så dagens läxa är därmed: Var alltid vänlig och trevlig och ta folks åsikter i beaktande, men inte till den grad att de skulle få styra vad du har på dig eller vad du själv tycker. Stå på er gott folk!

    Haha oh my! It’s kind of funny that people noticed the sweater in that way. But I definitely don’t think you’re a bad boy – you’re one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met (and I always look forward to your posts and your kind comments). Keep being you, boo!

    I was laughing so hard while reading this post – just imaging you were wondering around in Paris streets and being stared by the strangers. You know what? You look so incredibly handsome in this blue sweater so who cares what others say. I completely agree that we should always stay true to ourselves, yet always be open to learn (like French so you can be more fluent :)).

    That’s so funny that you walked around the street and people are looking at you with different expressions! I think that’s the most entertaining thing when you’re wearing something that’s either fun or interesting. It’s so important to stay true to yourself and I think that’s really cool that you put this really stylish outfit together. I love that you wore the advisory cap with your sweater. So smart and amazing all at the same time.

    Ahh that’s so hilarious!! Definitely a way to spice up your day walking the streets of Paris! But yess I agree so much! I used to be such a people pleaser too! I think it’s because I preferred seeing the people around me happy, but it eventually caught up and hurt me to the point where I chose their happiness over my own. So I learned you can’t always please everyone and that’s okay! Standing up for your own beliefs is the most important thing.

    I think that’s hilarious if people are getting offended by some words on a sweater then they need to get a life Ha ha
    It’s only fashion people!
