Today I went to a Peet’s Coffehouse very close to my house and tried out the Matcha Green Tea Freddo that my blogger friends have been raving. It was so delicious! I ordered a large and wasn’t able to finish it but that’s all right. I forced myself to get out and make some headway into that PIR/personal statement for medical school. It feels like dissecting everything about your being, spilling it out and sectioning off the good and the bad and analyzing every little detail and the cause-and-effect of every choice every made. It’s a big ego-deflating process but in the end, I’m sure to come out wiser. As Delphi said, “Know thyself.”
I had been planning on showing this outfit for months now, but somehow haven’t had the inspiration to. I purchased the light pink tutu skirt and black ruched sleeve top from Forever 21 along with the Hello Kitty tank I wore yesterday. For a size XS, it fits really well on my waist. The elastic band prevents any unsightly bunching or gaps yay! My dad actually liked the black top paired with classic jeans when we went to visit his relatives. So perhaps he does have some fashion sense after all xD I impulse-bought the ballet flats online with this outfit in mind. I should really learn to work with what I have instead of buying new pieces for crazy outfits haha. This pair is way too big, as they are size 6’s. The cross lacing in the front is really weird up close but creates a cool effect from a distance. I remember when I unboxed these one of the flimsy strings fell off. I took one of those slide-up razor knives and cut myself a hole. No cheaply made material will defeat me! After lacing these up my legs, it’s really hard to walk around without the strings falling back down so I waddled like a penguin around my courtyard probably much to the neighbors’ glee.
My hair wouldn’t cooperate either. I spent over 30 minutes trying to put it into a top bun but my hair has grown much since I last thought up this outfit (yay for fish oil pills!). I tried using multiple hair ties, little clips but it wouldn’t stay up. This outfit is very high maintenance for being so simplistic. I avoided wearing jewelry because in my mind ballerinas are clean, poised, and elegant without need for explanation.
As you already know, I love playing dress-up. If you’ve danced a day in your life, I am obviously playing around in these ballerina poses. I am the biggest klutz when it comes to moving my arms and legs at once! Haha all my motor coordination cortex space is taken up by my fingers (years and years of musical training) and none is left for my feet. However, I am pretty flexible for a nub so I took lots of photos doing weird things. Huzzah for self-timer high kick! I’ll give my camera a treat for snapping it relatively well fu fu fu :3
MAKE LIFE JUICY CONTEST ENTRY
What’s juicier than the ability to transform into anyone you want to be? That is the single best thing about fashion – we can play dress up from the day we’re born till the day we die and each day will never be the same. Yesterday I might be a military officer, today I’m a ballerina, tomorrow I might be Lady Gaga. When you dress the part, you become the part. The world’s my stage and my closet brings the limelight.
