First of all I want to thank everybody who has every pottered on over to What Row Chose… I have recently hit 10,000 views! I’m sooo super-duper happy. It really makes it so worthwhile when I hit big mile stones like that. I feel like within just the past 4 months, let alone past 12, this blog has gone strength to strength. Considering I started this blog not telling anyone about it and not promoting it in any way, shape or form, I am now so proud of my blog it’s one of the first things I mention when I meet someone new. The blogging groups that I’m involved with are so supportive and all have amazing blog themselves! Ok, Oscar acceptance speech over, time for the post!
I have been waiting for an appropriate time to use this title, because I could have do easily used it for 90% of my looks! Not sure if I said this before (hehe!) but Pink is my favourite colour to wear, paint with, look at and even brush my teeth with!
My course at uni is so well tailored to my needs, when I say needs I mean concentration levels and laziness! 3 days a week we have studio sessions, so basically creative lessons with one or sometimes 2 days off then we finish the week on a light lecture and seminar. When my friends mention they have a lecture a day, sometimes 2 a day, I honestly don’t believe I’d cope. Sometimes one lecture is too much for me!
A couple of weeks ago the lecture was about ‘Constructing Gender’. We covered things like why do we identify blue for boys a pink for girls when it hasn’t actually always been like that, amongst a load of other points. Normally we have a reading and some questions, but we were instructed to come dressed as feminine, masculine or androgynistically as we could. I’m not gonna lie, I feel like me and my lecturer were the only ones who actually bothered to do it. But when I get the opportunity to ‘girly it up’ I grab it with both hands! I bought this dress at the beginning of the year in my ‘sad-because-I-miss-my-Mummy’ Primark Haul from ASOS. There was also a white version of the dress, but I don’t look very good in white. I think because I’m quite pale anyway, it just exaggerates that. I teamed it with a bolder pink cardigan to ‘anchor’ the look so it’s not too ghostly overall.
I love wrapping a good belt around any dress, and I’ve worn my little pearls to look even more lady like!
