So, I thought I hated this hot pink hair. Turns out I don’t mind it. Kinda like it even. It was bugging me that I couldn’t figure out what it reminded me of. Then it hit me. Gwen Stefani in No Doubt circa late 90’s with red lips and braces. She was so awkwardly cute back then. She had her own style even before she was ‘fashionable’ as such. I’ve never been a huge fan but the lady is something. I like her.
This dress I found in one of those super cheap stores in Regent arcade that all the cute little Hong Kong girls seem to shop and work in. Cute dresses that are dirt cheap and terribly constructed. This dress is hemmed with a loose overlock stitch which luckily blends in to the whoosh fabric. So crap though. Threads hanging out everywhere too and a zipper that gets jammed. I sacrificed quality for cute on this one. Oh, the worst bit though is the most unflattering neck/ arm line I’ve ever encountered. It looks all nice with something under it but wow, you don’t want to see this sans sleeves. It gives me grandma arms which are a lie!!!! I’ll stay shirted for now.
