i opened my closet doors in an attempt to find a quick, basic outfit to run an errand at Joanns. here goes the downright truth of my thoughts. hahah
i had “basic” in my mind, so i threw on a super casual tank-dress and jean shorts. i figured that since it’s the summer, might as well wear a bikini top regardless if i’m going to the beach or not. i first wore it inside the dress, and thought, “eh, it’s cool. but HEY! who wears bathing suit tops outside their clothes…to local stores?!? …*she tries it on* ….IIIIIIII LIIIIIIIIKE IT!!!!” no seriously, i dig the look, but you’re probably thinking it’s too print-y with the cheetah and stripes overlapping each other… or maybe you think it’s just plain ugly hahah. but wait…something’s still missing. where’s that tulle!!! gotta have my tulle on. i swear, it’s my personal trend for the “season,” or the time being until i get tired of it. OH! can’t forget that other personal trend - Danger bands. aww yeeeah, industrial tape bought from Home Depot and taped together as an accessory. you have NO idea how powerful those bad boys are. as cheesy as it sounds, wearing danger bands give me a boost. they seriously DO boost my confidence and make me feel stronger. and dangerous, perhaps. got that old oversized bow on my head, nothing new. i should discard that thing; it’s getting old. bangles, those rusty-smelling, cheapos from Forever 21. is it me or does all their jewelry smell funky? and finally, the shoes. awww yeeeeeeeah. THE SHOES. whaaaaat….the fuuuueeeeee. i know. it’s NOT as bad as it looks. they feel normal…as in supportive. and i don’t feel like i’m going to fall back when i walk. i guess all the weight is on one side of the shoe making that side overpowering…so that the back heel isn’t necessary. like a seesaw shifted all to one side…maybe?…possibly? i don’t know.
so yeah, back to the point, i’m going to joanns to buy more black tulle and a yard of costume pleather…in something i tried to make "basic" but my mind’s creativity pushed against it. i just can't leave the house without that full satisfaction in my outfit..it does reflect a part of my mood for the day. and most of the time, it gives me an energy booster. if something’s missing, if ONE of those pieces weren’t worn, i’d feel almost naked. it would bug the hell out of me and i would think about that missing piece sporadically throughout the whole day as if someone went a day without their panties on...wouldn't that bug the hell out of you? wait...some people purposely don't wear any underwear...so i guess we're not on the same boat.
anyways, this is not what i planned to wear to joanns, but this is something my imagination pushed through. maybe my imagination can’t produce the societal term of basic? i’m cool with that :) because this IS basic...to ME. okay, enough with the word “basic” now.the question is - should i wear this out today? to run freakin errands at local shopping stores? Joanns…Walmart…Petsmart…etc. REALLY RISCHAE? well, it IS casual. the world says it's unnecessary for a little errand run. it’s creative. it obviously represents me. but it’s not “normal.” and i'm kinda lazy to change into something else when i'm already dressed. is this appropriate? it’s entirely not good enough for a fashion photo shoot. see, my mind is going through battle in it's little creative-fashion corner.*sigh*
conclusion? screw society. it's my personal style.
therefore, off to Joanns.
*note to self:
-buy more red tulle to over-emphasize the side tail (make it puff).
-get it right on photoshop. that right elbow on the right side is too bright.
-shave my legs.
-no more rambling on fashion blog entries. make it straightforward and brief.
