I think Bad-ass is a state of mind, not a clothing style. And in fact, I don’t think I ever dress bad-ass. Not like the iconic Patti Smith, e.g., who was born with it. So with my curly pale hair and ladylike silk scarf, my “Badass Blogger” tee (from Suzanne’s shop,) is tongue-in-cheek.
Inside me, however, lives a mighty bad-ass who will speak out when things are wrong. I’ve gotten more outspoken as I age. I like to defend and debate and I don’t curl up in a ball when criticized. So long as I am respectful, I don’t worry so much about others’ opinions of me. Do you have one of those women living in you too?
I couldn’t find a way to wear this scarf (sim) other than totally demure, so I wrapped it around my waist for a rather odd, but artistic, look. It’s a depiction of Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus,” not very fierce but I love the design. I’m wearing an old knit maxi skirt (sim) and my favorite Calvin Klein oxfords (sim). It’s the Bad-ass uniform, yes? : >
Is bad-ass a way you dress, or think, or just a character in the movies? (Daniel Craig plays James Bond as a BADASS, no argument please).
