Speaking of hair, my sister colored mine again around Christmas. I love red hair. I've always adored Anne (of Green Gables) and her natural red hair, freckles and green eyes. I never know how my sister gets my bangs to do that! they always end up to the side of my forehead.
So a week ago I went to Goodwill with a couple of friends. Quite hesitantly I bought a dress. I think it may be from the 80's, although I really am not sure. It was a bit big, so I tied in tight in the back. Now i can't reach with my arms very far, and the sleeves are still huge.
I improvised. Yes, I still need to perfect it, see that bit of ribbon sticking out?
All my friends thought it was amazing that it was made out of a shoulder pad. I'm just glad they couldn't tell. :P
See that knot? When I have time I am going to work on making the ribbon look neater. I love those ^ barrettes. Not many people wear them, but they are so good at keeping my hair back!
I haven't gotten up the nerve to wear just the dress today, so I am wearing a skirt over it today. It may looks silly, and I still feel self-conscience.
I was talking to someone yesterday about trend-setting and such. I do have a different style then most, and it shows. But I'd never be able to be a trend-setter. Rather then going forward in fashion, I go backwards. Although, fashion is a cycle, isn't it? I don't like sticking out too much, I fear what people will think or say. I can go to a certain point (which changes depending on the day's circumstances- for instance, being at youth dressed differently is harder then being around my friends), but I don't go to the extent I'd like to. I admire the people who go full-out, complete, vintage, and the people who dare to dress up often, and be abnormal. My perfect wardrobe would be vintage, a mix of vintage and modern, with a few casual pieces. I have to admit, I like to wear sweatpants and jeans on cold winter days when I'm just doing school at home. Another blog I admire is Liebe Marlene. So gorgeous! I wish I could have her wardrobe also.
Also, I just realized that most of my pictures are sideways. I'm sorry!
