These are the pictures that so define who I was since my teenage years up to lately when I started to evolve and become kikay. Key elements:
- long, unkempt hair
- t-shirt (most often black)
- bare face
- sneakers (usually Chucks)
Right now my hair is still sorta unkempt, but quite shorter compared to the pictures above. And I now have bangs (which are getting too long already and are almost always pinned back by a hair clip). I now wear dresses and skirts, use minimal makeup and usually wear flip flops. Quite a change, eh? A somewhat recent photo:
Never mind the eye
bags maleta. 😛 But can you see the difference from the old photos? Here I was wearing a cowl-neck lavender dress with a gray cardigan, and yeah some light makeup (just BB cream, powder, blush, tinted lip balm) too. A far cry from my college style, eh? I gotta say I miss my long hair though. 😐
I am only now trying to find my own sense of style. I do miss my edgy basta-na-tao look, but somehow I want to kinda soften that, make it a wee bit more
age-appropriate feminine. Fashion blogs and online shopping sites (hello eBay!) provide inspiration, but I still want a look all my own, you know? It’s funny, most of my classmates and batchmates have by this time grown up and arrived to a style all their own while I am just beginning the transition and feeling awkward and clumsy about it to boot. Quarter-life crisis much?
I honestly dunno why I’m all fussing like this when I rarely even go out of the house. 😛 Haha.
