1. for sure, i agree with that

2. i'm not militantly casual, but i am militantly quirky when it comes to clothes.

i would say my motivation behind my style is simply that i wear things i think are comfy and adorable. what my style could also be saying to others? that i don't consider myself an actual adult and don't want to be treated as such, that i have a quirky artistic/creative personality and a vivid imagination, and that i loathe being thought of as 'womanly' or 'sexy' and am much more comfortable with going for 'cute'. all of which is true.

tl;dr: i think clothes send messages even when we're not consciously trying to make those statements. just by dressing in a style that apprals to you, you're showing people something about your personality.
