"I swear, you are going to stab yourself in the neck with that necklace!"
"Well, at least I'll go out in my signature style."
That's a comment I got last week, when I went to go see my friend's dance recital. It was rather mesmerizing, and I seriously enjoyed seeing so much talent. Almost all of the pieces were cheoragraphed by the students (including my friend's, and I am so proud of her!), and it was amazing. It makes me wish I was more into dance and had taken lessons. Ah well, for now Zumba is good enough for me.
We went out to an all-night diner afterwards with some friends, and it was fun. We stacked our empty glasses to the ceiling, stole food from each other's plates (okay, let's be honest, my friend and I were the only one's stealing food - we're hungry girls!), and had way too much dessert. Man, pie shakes are marvelous creations. Especially when they're a Peanut Butter and Chocolate flavor.
Anyway, this is what I wore that night, and I really loved the combination of a colorful bird print against a dark background. Plus, the lace texture of the skirt added interest. Combined with a bright clutch and some wedged shoes, I felt confident and pretty. Something about a good outfit that can boost your self esteem!
Before the night's events, I went down to that bridge I tried taking pictures at before (remember this post?). This time, I was determined to stick around until I got all the photos I wanted. Luck was on my side, and not too many people were out. However, a couple stumbled across my photo shoot, and I got a mixed reaction from both. The woman smiled pleasantly in an "Oh, isn't she so cute?" kind of way, and the guy just looked at me with a mixed emotion of confusion and disgust. Because seriously, what is this girl doing out on a trail wearing wedged shoes?"
Fashion blogger problems.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
