Some people might tell you that every rule that one encounters in life must be followed to the letter while others will tell you that rules only exist to be broken. It seems like there are rules for everything. Even when the rules are not hard and fast laws or some other type of written regulation, there is still an entire culture that is filled with rules that people are expected to follow or face the consequences. These rules even exist when it comes to fashion, beauty and other issues that really should be personal decisions. It is a real shame that the majority of the public is not capable of allowing people to express themselves the way they choose to as opposed to expecting them to follow some set of unwritten rules they are somehow supposed to be familiar with, often without the help of anyone to guide them through the process or explain to them why these rules are so important in the first place.
Over the years, there have been a few brave souls who attempted to do their own thing. Unfortunately, many of them have been met with a great deal of criticism and some of them have even been singled out, largely so they could be picked on by everyone else. When it comes to the rules of fashion, some people practically pass out if a person wears white pants at the wrong time of the year or chooses to wear a jacket that is made with a plaid pattern while wearing striped pants. The truth is, there are relatively few individuals that have had both the courage to buck these trends and the success that may or may not come with doing so. However, there are a select number of individuals that seem to specialize in not only thinking outside the box when it comes to matters of beauty, but leading others down the same path as well. One such individual that has been very successful at doing both of these things is Doe Deere, the creator of Lime Crime.
In order to understand the importance of her accomplishments, it is important to understand a little about who she is. She is an individual that never understood why beauty and fashion had to have all of these rules, not to mention why everyone was expected to follow them whether they chose to or not. Because of her personal feelings, she made a decision early on that she was not going to follow any of these rules unless she wanted to. As a result, she created unique looks with her fashion choices and then expanded those ideas into creating an entirely new line of makeup that became synonymous with enjoying the process of being an individual.
Eventually, she made the decision to create her company, Lime Crime, so that others could also enjoy the same level of freedom that she had. She knew that there had to be a fairly large number of individuals out there that were tired of following these ridiculous rules of fashion and wanted something better. For the most part, she also knew that people really needed a role model to look up to and she served that purpose very well. Today, Doe Deere continues to be a role model for those who want to express their individuality through their fashion choices. That is what makes her such a unique individual.
