On Wednesdays We Wear...

30 April 2014


Unless you are living under a rock (or an ideal world without social media), you probably have already figured out that today marks the 10th anniversary of the film Mean Girls. Of course, everyone is in an uproar because it just so happens to fall on a Wednesday and...well, if you've seen the movie you'll get the reference. I love Mean Girls as much as the next guy but I do easily get sick to death of the same quotes being spewed out every other minute and I never wanted to end up being one of those people who says "on Wednesdays we wear pink" in real life but... I felt it was appropriate for the occasion. I am cheating a bit because this outfit is from last Wednesday. Although I did wear pink today as well, it was much to hot to be wearing anything more than a T-shirt and skater skirt.

Last week was the opening and closing of my university's production of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, a piece that means a whole lot to me and I have had the great privilege to appear in twice. Overall, the show was a great success, and we were able to raise $1,358.52 for V-DAY and SFWAR. If you've never seen the show, I highly, highly recommend you do at some point. It is seriously life changing to see and/or be a part of. The subject sounds a bit... distasteful to some, but I can assure you that it'll be worth every laugh and every tear.

Dreams

13 April 2014


This week I spent a lot of time in reminiscence. When I was younger my fashion and lifestyle was greatly influenced by the 1970s thanks to an unhealthy obsession with Stevie Nicks. That obsession was revisited due to news that my all-time favourite band Fleetwood Mac is having a reunion tour and will be performing within walking distance of my parents' condo in Sacramento later this year! In preparation for seeing them for the second time (this time actually with the lovely Christine McVie!) I was doing what I did most on the internet at age 12 and 13, watching the latest Stevie Nicks interviews and specials, particularly focusing on an episode of Oprah's Master Class that came out just last year.

It all inspired me to focus on the flowy aesthetic of the 1970s I love so much (and perhaps repurchase those black lace witchy numbers I used to wear daily) such as this maxi dress that I stole from my mother's closet many years back. The wind definitely helped show off just how flowy the dress is that day! Perhaps I will collect enough for the perfect concert ensemble by November!

Finale

05 April 2014


Lately, I've found myself so busy that the time I am actually in my room is the time I take to sleep. Thankfully, though, yesterday I had majority of the day to do whatever I wished...and what I wished to do was go shopping! I've been in need of some major retail therapy lately, and since I've recently made some money acting, I went and did just that.

This week, my all-time favourite television programme, How I Met Your Mother came to an end, something I have been equally anticipating and dreading for the past few years I got into it. Despite the very negative general public reaction, I've come to accept and love the ending myself, mostly because this show is more than a show to me (cue sappy music). Needless to say, I've been a bit... empty, in overly-dramatic fangirl terms.

Things should be picking up soon, hopefully, as the show I am currently help with closes tonight (I've had to wear black every few days for the past few weeks, rehearsals included...which explains my lack of outfit posts), and I will have much more time to myself---meaning many more colour in my wardrobe, and inevitably a more chipper mood!

Stay sweet ♡
