Second Skin

Over the summer, StylelikeU convinced me to partake in their relaunched Second Skin project. My friend Meagan had been in one of the first episodes the previous fashion week season and she was so stressed out about it, I was really tentative at first. But I'm also less anxious than Meagan (I SAY THIS WITH A LOT OF LOVE) so I figured it was worth a shot. The internet has a very limited perception of my style most days, so I figured whatever thrown at me couldn't get me too twisted.

I was pretty much right, but the results are truly comical. I'm kind of spacey and mellow about everything, and Dynasty is super outgoing and gregarious and anxious about the whole thing. I laughed through the entire twenty minutes when I watched it this morning.




Yeah, our style is lil' bit different. Just a little.


Here is the video. Enjoy. 



Outfit credits in the first two photos -- our official "meeting" photos -- my plastic jacket and the knitted dress -- are both frequently worn in past outfit posts. Here's me with Scott, my partner who made it the dress. 

Anyway, I hope you have fun watching it and you're off to a cool week.

Not sure why you blocked me on tumblr since I wasn't sending you hate. You had to publicly expose my url just so you can tell me off in front of all your followers? You couldn't discuss this in private? You literally said "accumulated from various emails and tumblr fanmails which i do not answer and will never answer, because i hate tumblr fanmail, forever and endlessly". So like any person, I asked why. But you lashed out on me and took it as a personal attack. I know how hard you work. I was an avid follower but I guess since you blocked me I can't see your posts anymore. You seemed like someone who was understanding on tumblr.

You have so many followers so you knew exactly what you were doing. I'm getting anon hate because I asked a question. Why would you even block someone over that?

kelly said...

Why are you deleting my comments? I'm trying to talk to you so I can apologize. I'm a fan.

I'm deleting them because I don't want you in my space? Like, I made that clear when I blocked you on tumblr and made my points as to why very clear. What would make you think I would want you on this one? That was not an attack. That was me making very clear my space and the fact I am not obligated to talk to anyone, at any time. People have this idea that they're entitled to be in my life just because i'm on the internet. No. And your very rude (leading) questions perfectly characterized this entitlement. You asked me -- not -- accused me basically, in a very paggro way. your phrasing, you can revisit that yourself. Asking me via TUMBLR FAN MAIL why i don't TALK TO PEOPLE when i said don't contact me through it -- come on.. my response to your really rude question was not me attacking you, it was me responding to a really jackass way of you asking me why i think i'm too good for people. i don't! i am just BUSY and an ANXIOUS PERSON and have to approach the people who want to talk to me in a context where i feel comfortable. email is best. fanmail triggers my anxiety. but i don't have to explain this. when i say something about my boundaries i need them to be respected.


by you continuously trying to talk to me after i made it clear i don't want you in my space you are once again breaking those boundaries. you can have, at any point, emailed me asking any of these questions. but you're not! you're in my space. again. when i made it clear i didn't want you in it. do you see???? this???? would make me upset???

But I'm trying to apologize.

kelly said...

I sent you fan mail because it's private and you publicly humiliated me.

kelly said...

Trust me, I like you a lot. And it was not my intention to offend you. I know that it's not your obligation to answer my questions and I apologize. I didn't try to personally attack you.

kelly said...

I'm not trying to argue with you. I'm trying to make my case and apologize like anybody who makes mistakes. I made a mistake and I'm owning up to it.

Arabelle Sicardi said...

i AM really sorry people sent you anon hate in response, i didn't expect or want that to happen, that was childish on their part,

Arabelle Sicardi said...

anyway, i accept your apology, though if you'd like to discuss stuff in the future please just email me. sorry people thought it was ok to fight my battles for me. no one deserves anon hate

chelsea said...

Can you unblock me? I'm sorry. Let me formally introduce myself. My name is chelsea (not kelly, it was only for protection), and I swear I'm not an asshole.
