They’re going to better places

I had the big chop. I was nervous. I wasn’t sure if a pixie cut would suit me. My salon would style it, of course, but I had no idea if I could pull it off on a daily basis. Plus, I was comfortable with braiding and curling and styling my long hair. I’ve always had long… Continue reading They’re going to better places

We were young when we heard you

Today I wore my grandmother’s blouse. I’m pretty sure she made it herself, because she made clothes for my mom and my aunts and uncles, and curtains and pillowcases for all of us. I remember a time when I would sit with her in her sewing room as she worked. Sometimes we talked –there was… Continue reading We were young when we heard you

I pull my shirt on, walk out the door

Then I see you You’re walking ‘cross the campus -“Campus”, Vampire Weekend Since what I’ve been working on for more than a month now has to do with youth and students and high school and college and students and teachers and campuses… Here’s me wearing a school-ish outfit. Sort of. Depends on where you’re from.… Continue reading I pull my shirt on, walk out the door

To be completely honest, if I had a Rapunzel-ish dress—or a Flynn-esque vest, for that matter—I would’ve worn it, but I had to settle for this sort-of-flowy… Continue reading I’ll put a flower in your hair

We drew our own constellations

I’ve always wanted a fedora, and when I saw this during the Pahiyas festival, I bought it at once. I didn’t notice that it’s a tad too small for me. I haven’t worn… Continue reading We drew our own constellations

I get the news I need on the weather report

I can’t remember where I got this. But I do know that I have never—and I mean NEVER—worn this before. I’ve tried it, sure, but I always take one look in the mirror and then decide to wear something else. 😦 I think it’ll work better with a body type—or fashion style—a bit different from… Continue reading I get the news I need on the weather report

But I still have one more question on my mind

This yellow blouse was a Christmas gift from Sara last year. She made the yellow and white flowers 😀 I’ll be honest here: I’ve never worn it. 😦 See it was so cute…too cute. Haha! At the time, I wasn’t sure if I could pull off “cute” nicely. “It’s too cold for it, anyway,” I… Continue reading But I still have one more question on my mind
