Almost a year ago I went to Singapore wearing an outfit that everybody thought was strange. It was too colorful! Fast forward to today and it's a TREND! Now, that is strange! ^.~
When I was younger, my mother used to say that I don't like being told. I almost always get into trouble for this. If you know me well enough, you'd pretty much say that nothing has changed... but that's another story. :p
I never was into following what everyone else is doing. When everyone was wearing doll shoes or ballet flats at school, I wore high-heeled boots. When everybody took some time off to enjoy finally being free from school, I started working a week after graduation. When almost every one I know started to get married, I broke up with my boyfriend of five years, transferred to a new company and moved out of our house... far away from it all and start fresh. I'm crazy like that.
I always do things my own way... at my own time. So when I wore this outfit to roam around Singapore, I didn't give an "eff" to what others would think. I felt good and pretty which is enough for me. I guess that should always be the case. It's a cliche... but the saying "you should always follow your heart" is true. DAMN TRUE. It's better to start making your own steps than following everyone else's. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing your own trail.
Now... who would say I'm strange when everyone is going gaga over color blocking? One word. FIRST!
