follow your own path,
and don't worry about the darkness,
for that is when the stars shine brightest.
A friend showed me some of Ryuichi Ogino's work today and I was simply amazed when I researched more of his work online. I like these pieces particularly because it breaks the stereotypes of how Japanese females are portrayed. I've also always admire the casual style of how the younger Japanese woman dress over there, maybe we can learn a thing or two from the people who live across the seas.
Ogi's work sort of reminds me of the stuff Stell Im Hultberg does except her work is a little bit more subtle and ethereal. I don't know but I've always had a thing for simple portrait illustrations.
I think the best kind of style is the one you feel most comfortable or challenge yourself to be in. It's not always about matching or caring about what others think. The most important critic is yourself and that is all that matters. I admire the users on lookbook.nu because this website has real people with real style.
Today would a nice day to sit outside on the grass next to a pond and munch on A Handful of Everything. This jar contains a mixture of raisins, almonds, chocolate drops, peanuts, cashews, coconut & dried fruit.
Even though I'm sick, I am in such a great mood today. I am ready for anything! :)
I hope everyone had a happy&spooky halloween! Mine was kind of hectic..and you know how I get when I feel rushed throughout the entire day...I get cranky! Well anyway, there was a Halloween party on Friday and the theme was school girls & nerds. Don't you think it's kind of odd to throw a themed party when Halloween should already be a theme by itself? Oh well, the party turned out fun!
My best friend somehow convinced me the week before to be a sailor scout with her and at first I thought the idea was SUPER EMBARRASSING. But when do I ever feel embarrassed about anything?? It took a lot of motivation but I ended up finishing my outfit right before the party and I was very satisfied with how it turned out! Fabric at Joann's only costed $8 and the bows probably amount up to $2. Halloween costumes should always be this cheap! Now that I feel more confident about sewing, maybe I will start making my own outfits from now on instead of wasting money at the mall.
