Fashion Inspiration

Back when I was around 8 or so, my grandy went to Europe. On her adventure in Europe, she stopped by Paris. When she arrived back home, she brought my family and I lots of different souvenirs...and one of those souvenirs was a black beret. My grandy was actually going to keep it for herself, but I really wanted it. But after I brought it home with me, something about the hat made me not want wear it. So, after 7 or 8 years of not wearing the beret (AKA-last month), our stage manager in the last play I was in wore the cutest black beret. It reminded me of the one I had at home that I had neglected for far too long. After the play was finally over with (because I didn't what to seem like a copy-cat, even though I kind-sorta am being one;), I decided to wear my beret. I was scared that I could not pull it off, but I managed to do so! When I wear it or see someone wearing one, it always makes me think of Paris (of course! That's where it was born!) espressos, poetry, and generally artsy things. Don't know if berets have the same effect on you as they do me...

Here are a few pictures I took of myself while wearing the my beret. Tell me what you think...



This was my Facebook picture up until yesterday



Okay, I know, very random. SAY WHAT?

I think you look gorgeous. :)

Thank you for the lovely comment in my blog. I enjoyed reading your profile and is especially excited when I knew you could play piano!! I've always wanted to learn the classical piano when I was young. Now at the age of 27, I'm just starting to 'self-learn' it. Wish me luck! Or perhaps you could offer a tip or two? ;)
