I recently read an article in Lula Magazine about what it means to dress and the fantasy of it all. It served as a refresher as to why I love clothing so much. My favourite thing about fashion and what never ceases to amaze me about it is how transformative it can be. One day I might resemble Alice in Wonderland, the next, a grungy Nirvana groupie. I was never really ready to give up dress up (except for during those awkward LG years) and I've managed to adapt it to the real world....kind of. Actually, I'll take that last statement back, I get some questioning looks from many of my friends and passerbys surrounding my choice in attire. Anyhow, my point is that you can become whoever you want, whether it be full time of just for a day. A perfect place to start for this summer: A mermaid.
How to be: A Mermaid
STEP 1: if possible, grow your hair out long enough so that it can be worn as a shirt
STEP 2: wear a shirt that outwardly says you're a mermaid to clear up any confusion (unless you've successfully completed step 1)
STEP 3: get your mermaid beauty on
dip dye or full on dye your hair (à la Charlotte Free) some shade of purple, pink, or blue.
always sleep with it in a braid so you can optimize wavyness
paint your nails a mystical shade
