The Outsider Is The Warrior For My Soul

Thanks Megan. Phenomenal, and I mean, PHENOMENAL article. Read it. You'll be a slightly better version of yourself if you do. I have to cite the Marchesa Luisa Casati as an absolutely massive inspiration for me. She was so passionate about her self expression that she invited ridicule, horror, shock, and adoration. This is what we should be striving for: truly being ourselves, no matter how ugly, messy, or completely alien to others we may be. The outsider (as an archetypal figure) is always the martyred icon of future generations. Her most infamous and delicious quote: "I want to be a living work of art!" REAL style icons.
