What a hard topic! But I think you're right: in the end it comes down to unashamedly expressing as we see fit. And as with all things, perhaps the real challenge (and maybe even the cause of all the contention surrounding fashion) is our inability to Do, Appear and Present without attaching to these activities our identity.

I think that it's okay to attach the activities to your identity in the context of being conscious of the fact that identities are fluid and dynamic. We are so many different things at any given time – multi-dimensional! I think the whole point is that we run into problems when we try to fit in one narrow space and convince ourselves that we have to stay there forever.
