Outgrew my McDonalds insecurity and finally got to wear bright red! After I bleached my hair blonde a few months back, I remember expressing my feelings about being extra sensitive not to wear this color. Why? Because my hair looks extra yellow when I wear bright red. The combination just makes me feel silly, like I’m a walking McDonalds logo.
I can be too hard on myself sometimes. One of the older insecurities I’ve mentioned before included wearing bodycon dresses because of my lack of womanly curves. I should take cues from Danah and Stacy and love my body more, now that I think about it. Also, back in college, I couldn’t stand seeing red lipstick on myself because I thought it didn’t suit me at all. This turned out pretty good though. I can now go out with just mascara and red lipstick on ala Anne Curtis.
And once again I’ve broken out of my shell. I don’t know what’s with me recently, but if you’ve noticed from my recent outfit posts, I’ve been in a total “Screw all my insecurities!” mood. I think it might have something to do with my generally happier disposition nowadays. Free-ing myself from all sorts of negativity did wonders, not only to my life but also surprisingly to my personal style. I wish I could elaborate on this some more, but as I always say, I’m not too good with words!
