Valet For the Ballet

Today I went to a Peet's Coffehouse very close to my house and tried out the Matcha Green Tea Freddo that Sophia and Ping have been raving. It was so delicious! I ordered a large and wasn't able to finish it but that's all right. I forced myself to get out and make some headway into that PIR/personal statement for medical school. It feels like dissecting everything about your being, spilling it out and sectioning off the good and the bad and analyzing every little detail and the cause-and-effect of every choice every made. It's a big ego-deflating process but in the end, I'm sure to come out wiser. As Delphi said, "Know thyself."

I had been planning on showing this outfit for months now, but somehow haven't had the inspiration to. I purchased the light pink tutu skirt and black ruched sleeve top from Forever 21 along with the Hello Kitty tank I wore yesterday. For a size XS, it fits really well on my waist. The elastic band prevents any unsightly bunching or gaps yay! My dad actually liked the black top paired with classic jeans when we went to visit his relatives. So perhaps he does have some fashion sense after all xD I impulse-bought the ballet flats online with this outfit in mind. I should really learn to work with what I have instead of buying new pieces for crazy outfits haha. This pair is way too big, as they are size 6's. The cross lacing in the front is really weird up close but creates a cool effect from a distance. I remember when I unboxed these one of the flimsy strings fell off. I took one of those slide-up razor knives and cut myself a hole. No cheaply made material will defeat me! After lacing these up my legs, it's really hard to walk around without the strings falling back down so I waddled like a penguin around my courtyard probably much to the neighbors' glee.

My hair wouldn't cooperate either. I spent over 30 minutes trying to put it into a top bun but my hair has grown much since I last thought up this outfit (yay for fish oil pills!). I tried using multiple hair ties, little clips but it wouldn't stay up. This outfit is very high maintenance for being so simplistic. I avoided wearing jewelry because in my mind ballerinas are clean, poised, and elegant without need for explanation.

I double winged my eyeliner and used Michael Todd's Creme Glace lipgloss in Disco that Nikki sent me. I originally thought about a nude lip but I wanted a bold look that would show up slightly better in photos. Turns out I wasn't even facing frontwards in most of these shots anyway oops.

As you already know, I love playing dress-up. If you've danced a day in your life, I am obviously playing around in these ballerina poses. I am the biggest klutz when it comes to moving my arms and legs at once! Haha all my motor coordination cortex space is taken up by my fingers (years and years of musical training) and none is left for my feet. However, I am pretty flexible for a nub so I took lots of photos doing weird things. Huzzah for self-timer high kick! I'll give my camera a treat for snapping it relatively well *feeds it fresh batteries* fu fu fu :3

Wearing:
Black ruched quarter sleeve top, F21 (size S)
Pink tutu skirt, F21 (size XS)
Navy pointed toe lace-up ballet flats, F21 (size 6)

"The world is my stage"
[Picnik contrast all the way up] Don't you love the purple?
Can you tell I love this picture? [Picnik, Orton-ish]
I took these photos around 6 PM so my garage door was finally shaded. Wish it were slightly brighter out.
Look ma, I'm flexible-ish!
POW! I could be kicker on a varsity team, no?
I made a gif animation ta-da!

Back to slightly more normal pictures
Stretch!
Jump shot makes my skirt look like a mushroom/umbrella
My "durrr" face. This is really what I look like between snapshots HAHAHA jk
Pretty tulle
Ballet shoe love ♥
 Peet's Green Tea Freddo yummy :D !
Hope you guys have a wonderful day! Tomorrow I may hit the beach at La Jolla. I can't believe I've been home all summer 15 minutes away from the glorious ocean and I haven't ventured West an inch. If the mini tanline from writing my essays underneath a fail-located umbrella at the coffeeshop weren't enough, I can't wait to see what big Kahunas I'm going to have to fend off tomorrow. Lots of sunscreen and Clinique After Sun rescue balm : ) Enjoy the summer, lovelies!

Your outfit is so bold, reminds me of fashionista Carrrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City! I have danced ballet for about 14 years and I'm pretty impressed with your flexibility and your positions. I also have this love affair with tulle. =0P
