Wear Anything (But…..)

Monday, September 5th, 2016

alice'ssmirkNo mother, I don’t care about what you think of my outfit!

From kindergarten through highschool, I had to suffer by wearing a uniform and I’ve developed an aversion to the color maroon since I have to wear an awful skirt in that color from grades 9 through 11. Then a vomit-like green colored knee-length skirt when I transferred to another school. Sometimes I wonder if the school uniforms are universally made to be ugly on girls or just my particular schools. I suspect that it’s the latter. Finally college! Freedom! But I was very confused as to what my style is and since my mother is very conservative, she pretty much dressed me in long-sleeves and long dresses. So I discovered shorts, mini-skirts, body-con dresses and ripped jeans and wore them all to my heart’s content. Now that I’m a bit older, I know exactly what I want to wear and what I look good in. I do believe that people have a right to wear whatever they want without being harassed. However, there is a time and a place. Obviously, it would be inappropriate to show up at a wedding in this dress. I support anyone’s decision to dress as they please as long as they’re not making other people uncomfortable or inconvenienced.

The reason why I have a fashion blog is that I can experiment with outfits I don’t usually wear in public like a super tight dress or a revealing top. It’s a lot of fun and you’re allowed to express yourself in your own private space.  A great philosophy for a personal style is to wear anything but be mindful about where you are and what your purpose is.

Dear Guys, please do approach me if I’m wearing headphones

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

headphones

Recently, the internet informed me that I should be mad at a guy named Dan Bacon for writing an article titled “How to Talk to a Woman who is wearing headphones”. It is a very polite article and I don’t sense that Dan has any intention of wanting women to be harassed. In fact, he repeatedly mentioned in the article that if the woman you approached shows any sign of disinterest, a guy should walk away and leave her be. That advice is common sense and something we can all agree on. If I were a guy reading Dan’s article, I would have a good idea of how to approach a girl appropriately even if she is wearing headphones. Now, I also read the rebuttal at the Guardian by Martha Mills who proceeded to call Mr.Bacon assortment of rude names while assuming her entitled role of representing all women. Her tone in the article implied that women who are wearing headphones always wanted to be left alone and every guy who tries to talk to her must be a sexual predator. That couldn’t be more wrong. A guy needs to have a lot of confidence to approach a woman in this day of swiping left and right on our phones. I would appreciate a guy who interrupts me in a respectful manner to talk to me and he would probably not get my number but I will definitely remember him for being ballsy. So guys, the next time if you see me wearing my headphones or any girl you have a crush on, do approach (nicely of course) and we will thank you for it!

Keeping it Simple

Monday, August 1st, 2016

I’m not really a bag person. In fact, when I go out to run errands, I just like to have some cash and my phone in my hand. The less stuff I’m carrying around, the happier I am. But sometimes, I do have to carry a bag around and I keep it mad simple.

What are they? Both the wallet and the bag are Rebecca Minkoff. Jord Watch. Le Specs Sunglasses.     Burt Bees lip balm and Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief. Iphoria Iphone Case. Keep your bag and your life simple this Monday! xoxoxoxoxoxo

How to be a stylish hiker

Saturday, July 9th, 2016

moonrisekingdom2              Moonrise Kingdom (one of my favorite movies ever!)

I’m not exactly what you would call an “outdoor enthusiast”. My main problem is the sun. Okay, and the pollution, the dust, the fog, unexpected rain, bugs, etc. Yes, nature is beautiful and I do like adventures but I also want to be comfortable. Looking stylish to go hiking might sound like a silly idea because your main concern should be having fun but I think hiking shoes are hideous and I look ridiculous in big shoes. So what should I wear when I go hiking? I came up with a list of items below, and I think they will put me in a much better mood even if I fall down a cliff.hikinglistHere’s to stylish and fun adventures! xxooxoxoxoxoxo

(Items: Grey Tshirt, Knit Leggings, Sunglasses, Backpack, Bear Grylls knife, Sun Bum sunscreen, sugar lip balm, Iphone case, Adidas sneakers)



Beauty Inspiration: Eva Green

One of the movies I’m looking forward to this year is “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. The trailer is epic and the lead character is perfectly cast in the form of Eva Green. I’ve been a fan of her since I first saw her in “The Dreamers”. She has a very strong and beautiful face and if you’ve seen her pictures at movie premieres, she’s not afraid of a red lip! I also love that she dyed her blond hair to black and she wears a lot of black like me! What stood out to me the most is her attitude and personality. Just read some of her quotes!

“I am many things. I can be quite mad, and young, but I’m not the kind of person who goes out to nightclubs and goes crazy. I am more like lying on my bed and listening to classical music to relax”.

“You’ve got to have desire, otherwise you just die. A lot of people, they’re 80 or 90 years old, and they die because they have nothing left to live for. It makes you alive if you have something you want in life. My first drama teacher was very passionate – she was full of energy – it was all about work, work work, then you can achieve something that is beyond your limits”.

“It’s so boring to play the girlfriend. Most of the women in film are there to be beautiful to the man. It’s quite hard to find a ballsy or complex character”.

I mean, don’t you just want her to be your best friend?!!
