Back-to-School (First Week Outfits)

I've said this before, but I'm going to say it again just in case you didn't catch it the first time. School started three weeks ago.
This school year, I'm really trying to express my personal style. I'm making it my mission to have at least one unique piece in every outfit I wear. This change in expression of style has been kind of hard on me. I'm not used to standing out, even though I do like it sometimes. (I know I'm not that unique compared to other bloggers, but in Douglasville, Georgia, I pretty much am.)
I think I'm an attractive person; I'm not that bad, and in the past, I used to dress like the typical pretty girl ("normal", trendy, flirty, feminine, and just...pretty). I've almost done a total 180° this year with my (faux) septum, and all the spikes, chains, and dark colors I'm wearing now, but this is the real me.
I'm starting to feel like my uniqueness is intimidating, especially to guys. The way I'm getting treated this year is much more different than how I was being treated last year (but I was the new girl last year; maybe they were just excited. haha!) My uniqueness has also helped me gain a different type of confidence, and some new friends and admirers too. Either way it goes, I'm not going to stop dressing unique. I think it's a good thing, especially since I'm an aspiring fashion designer.
But anyways, let me get back on topic. Here are the five outfits I wore to school on the first week. Enjoy!
