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

Everybody wanna see what it’s like

I need a new necktie. I bought this one when I dressed as a Nerd Herder for the Chuck Season 3 premier day, but I really need to get neckties of other colors. But the necktie isn’t the point of this post. I started wearing glasses when, at ten years old, I realized that I… Continue reading Everybody wanna see what it’s like

Like the sun we will live to rise again

I’ve participated in costume parties before, and I’ve always enjoyed dressing up as my favorite characters. Last year I dressed up as a barefoot Captain Jack Sparrow in a pirate shindig. Some time in college I came to a party as the winter Lara Croft. But this one… This one has to be my favorite… Continue reading Like the sun we will live to rise again

Someone comes along and shows you a brand new way

I couldn’t resist. For yet another Tangled screening, I put flowers in my hair again. No flowy princess blouse or any Flynn Rider satchel this time, but I did put my hair in braids. I’ve forever loved braids, but…the reality is: braids and my hair don’t mix. No matter how I tug or keep my… Continue reading Someone comes along and shows you a brand new way

Sort of. Depends on where you’re from.… Continue reading I pull my shirt on, walk out the door

I’ll put a flower in your hair

For the Tangled premier, it’s only right that I use one of my satchels (in honor of Flynn) and put flowers in my hair (in honor of Rapunzel). 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 spent two days—count ’em, TWO DAYS—to come up with this outfit. Mainly because of these two pieces: Trilby from Lucban, P75. 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
