A sudden identity crisis

Monday, March 05, 2012

Nothing serious, but for the past week my attention started to lean towards the 50s, finding myself more attracted to fit-around-the-waist, red-blue combi, girly, short and sweet--than on my usual lousy, laid back, hobo clothing favorites. Suddenly, I wanted to do-away with the pa-mysterious in black look, and instead be careless este carefree yet demure, perky pa-cute, and colorful like a 50s housewife (who embraces her curves!).

And because the style (a fusion of nautical and 50s housewife and Marilyn Monroe) is my current obsession, I saved a few pictures from Google search--and made a pin board (ala Pinterest!) of my "new peg". No copyright infringement intended! :)

Still getting there! During the Super Sale Bazaar, I got so confused whenever I encounter a store that would make me choose between sailor and anchors bracelet over a necklace adorned with leaf charms... Or a polka dots satchel versus a floral one! :P I know I will still go back to my "roots" (I lack the charm and attitude of the 50s woman!), but for now, I will enjoy (with my hippie heart) a very "50s Housewife" "Nautical" and "Diner Chic" Summer! :)
