Well obviously the monarchy. But how—how am I influenced?
I have been battling for longer than this project. Being a woman, I believe it started when I was began elementary school and started interacting with others, realizing that the external sources had influence, and that I was therefore influence-able.
I remember when one of my friends told me that my dress made me look pregnant. I was in third grade. I was mortified. Yes, it must have been sometime in elementary school when I became aware of my clothing and how it made me look.
This is it.
'How it made me...' that phrase, this is the problem. It didn't make me anything. I existed independently from it. I did before I wore it, I did after, and I do now.
So today, what am I influenced by. What have I bought and why? What are the stories?
This will be an interesting look...
