Thinking back to what made me happy and the memory of dressing up came to mind. I was born with very, very little hair and being from a family of 3 macho boys my mom was afraid that I'll turn into a tomboy so she would dress me up in girly, frilly, lacey clothes. I never wore pants or shorts till I was 7 years young. Not that I mind, it was fun dressing up as a little princess.
I would have a large hat with flowers, lacey stockings, and a chain of pearls borrowed from my mom. Yes, I was a young hime gyaru and I didn't even knew it. If you're not sure what the term hime gyaru means, basically it's a style of dressing up as princess like as possible. I'll leave it to the experts to explain to you. Go and check out the lovely Violet. I simply love the way she manages to look like an everyday princess and on a budget!
So, dress up it is! It was perfect as I just bought a frilly dress online. My subconscious hime must have sensed that I needed one soon. After about 30 mins of scavenging, make up, and hair....
Apologies to all the hime gyaru followers out there. I know it's a far cry from the true style so let's just say I was "inspired". It was a spur of the moment idea.
After a long hour of cam-whoring, back to reality I went. It was already 11 pm so I couldn't go anywhere to enjoy my outfit. Off came the flowers, pearls and ribbons. Back to the closet the dress went. A hot shower and a cup of hot coco with cinnamon and marshmallows later I was a content little girl tucked snugly into her bed, drifting off into slumber.
How bout you? What do you do to perk yourself up when you're feeling a little blue?
