Candie's Rose Heels - Kohl's
Bear in mind, for this post, that the weather outside for the majority of the day consisted of 90-100 degrees with almost 100% humidity and a heat advisory. Ridiculous.
Now - the reason I donned such an outfit on such a day: research project presentations. A year-long investigation of how to design a fashion collection and incorporate corsets into them.
Corsets and I = lifelong love affair.
I would've worn one for my presentation but I would've likely lost points - so I kept it professional and braved the heat in this. Naturally, in the afternoon, in my air-conditioned home, I was able to have a little photo shoot with the mum. :)
In the news also, I confronted a fear today:
Wearing my hair back in a bun. I love the feeling of having my hair out of my way and just letting my face be. That said, I've always lived with the feeling that I have a "man face" and I feel really masculine and exposed without my hair to point out my femininity. The combination of my father's face and a small bust just makes me think that everyone might look at me and think - "huh. Is that a guy in a dress or just a really ugly girl?" - Which, I guess is silly and probably untrue, but. Still.
Anywho - my insecurity aside, I really feel good about the project I turned in and the presentation I gave. Hopefully my grade will reflect that. One can only hope.
I am famished now - silly computer, keeping me from a delicious dinner!
I bid you adieu until tomorrow~
