I wouldn’t say that they are completely different from each other, but I would say that the transition from one to another made me rediscover who I really wanted to be, or how I really wanted to portray myself to the world.
I feel that it’s been a while since I wrote a personal personal post, like when I used to ramble about my #OOTD or what I bought today or basically what is going on in my life… and this post is going to be something of that sort. I’m literally typing this in the middle of the night, instead of focusing on my exams revision, without any plans, impulsively. I usually prefer it if readers can take away something valuable out of my posts, but I’m not sure about this one, where it is going to go… haha, anyway if you enjoy ramblings, read on.
Here’s the gist:
It came to me like an epiphany. I finally discovered what my true and all-time personal fashion style was. Like, the core of my style. And it hit me… while I was watching BLACKPINK:
For someone who never listens to k-pop, how did I end up watching this in the first place??? Well, it’s all thanks to the Fine Brothers and their latest react video. I always tend to go check the music videos they react to just because I’m curious…
I sincerely have no idea how my train of thoughts work so fast but somehow, watching this video made me think about the clothes I saw at the mall today as I was passing by some clothing stores, then made me stand up and walk to my closet to open it and check out my clothes. Well, I believe there is some association… since I was really impressed with the colourful funky style these Korean girls were pulling off.
That featured image up there is so cringe-worthy… If you have been sticking around, reading this blog since the beginning of time (i.e. 2011), then you might remember that I used to have quite a peculiar… goth style. I mean, come on, it’s An Evil Nymph (although there are other reasons why I called my blog that way).
Anyway, Happy Halloween! It’s that time of the year again, when I’m finally able to unleash my dark sides to the world without anyone judging! I remember, back when I had just started this blog, I wrote a few fashion/makeup posts, especially those special ones for festivities, such as Halloween… (do you guys remember that I also used to have a makeup blog right before this one?)
As the years went by, my craze for goth and makeup in general died down… and I had stopped ‘dressing up’ for Halloween (since we don’t officially celebrate it on this side of the world) and in university, it was worse because Halloween fell during the exam period! Like right now!
However, I saw this tag trend on YouTube recently about beauty vloggers re-creating their high school makeup look and eventually talking about how horrible their makeup styles were back then… and it dawned on me that this was a totally do-able makeup challenge (especially because I don’t have to buy anything)! So I was like, I should definitely do it one day. Then, I remembered that my style back in high school days was quite goth (i.e. Halloween-y)… and at the same time, I remembered that my boyfriend told me (after stalking through my old Facebook profile pictures!!!) that if he had met me back then, he would still have had a huge crush on me because he used to be into goth girls…
You can use the new generation chemicals that do a lot of harm to your skin now while making them look all new and shiny for a short while or you can use the old tried and tested natural remedies that people have been using for centuries to get a new and fresh looking skin.
Here are some natural ingredients that you can use in your soup as anti aging products that have health benefits without causing health hazards.
Although here in Mauritius we don’t officially celebrate Halloween, or Samhain’s Eve, whatever you call it, many of us, especially teenagers, always find a way to make this 31 October a special day, even despite having exams on the next day.
Yes, many of us were just stuck at home with revision work… but fortunately? I had tuition in the afternoon. This is when my friends and I decided to wear orange and black and cry out ‘TRICK OR TREAT’ when the teacher would come into class.
It’s been a long time since I haven’t been posting on fashion, you know so here we are, with a new crazy, and hopeful helpful, post of mine…
I don’t follow the actual trends or whatever although I love to watch and read about fashion. It’s fun. Makes my eyes water 😉 I usually have my own style and recently, I’ve been a little more conscious of what I wear, so I’ve started to consciously build my own fashion trends – of course, inspired by other trends. All right, I’ve been thinking about it for a while, if you’ve read my last fashion posts (see in the categories in the right sidebar!), but I’ve never really sort of organized my clothes, keep records of outfits and so on.
But now I am.
This was one of my very first outfits to become ‘digital’, I mean which I took a photo – last year.
So what if I’m not skinny and do not have the height of a super model? [Sorry for the long title by the way]
It isn’t supposed to matter. We know it doesn’t matter. But do clothing retailers and magazines help us to think so?
No. Not at all.
In about two weeks I’m going to a Gala Show at night and my friends and I were talking about what to wear. A dress, most probably. But it’s so hard to find one at your right size, style and personality. Most of the chic clothing I see in shops are stereotyped: they seem to be only reserved for skinny and very tall girls. And what about the rest? Yes there’s a brand for pregnant women. Pregnant women! What about the others then? Those who are not too big or too skinny but still have to hide a belly? Those whose height is under average?
In truth, ladies, whatever be the shape of your body, it’s always hard to find the perfect – at least suitable – dress.
Because I don’t have much experience in fashion, I’m only going to give you some tips when choosing a dress, for those who are like me: short and a little fat in the middle 😛
Girls, prepare your observant eyes and untiring feet… because the search will be difficult.
The Right Dress
If you wish to hide your excess belly fats, you should pick up an empire line dress, which means that the belt of the dress should be just under your breasts:
Alright now you might be thinking that I’m going to lecture you on the fact on which everyone babbles about yet never really apply it in their minds: that beauty lies in the soul, in one’s personality, and not in exterior beauty.
Yes, I don’t disagree with that.
But I’ve found that the real problem is how to make your beautiful personality visible? I mean, I know for all of us, especially women, it’s hard to believe that we are beautiful, because every morning our mirror claims otherwise. We know that we have amazing personalities but only we know. What about the others then? It’s hard for them to break the ice to finally reach this beauty that lies inside, and most of them just won’t bother digging. So how to make the link between interior and exterior beauty?
And before you click out of this page, which I hope you won’t, let me tell you that the solution isn’t about makeup and hair or clothes.
How can we as writers combined the two? Keep reading!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but on the sidebar there’s a Polyvore widget. What’s Polyvore? It’s a website for those who like to virtually create their own fashion trends and styles, who make up outfits or simply express themselves through combining images to form a unique masterpiece.
I’ve been on Polyvore for quite a long time but it was only a few days earlier that I really got into it. You can check out my profile HERE (and add me if you have an account too ^^ if you wish!). I got the idea from the dragon-lover and writer Shéa MacLeod: to make up my own character’s outfits! (check out MacLeod’s Polyvore too!)
And this is just so so fun!
For example I did 3 outfits for my protagonist who is Elaine Graith – the daemon girl stuck in Heaven:
Hey guys! This will be a short post. I’d just want to update and add some more spice to the Beauty & Fashion category.
Today I’m going to show you two of my favourite outfits I like to wear especially when going out at night. I like to wear black as it is more elegant and makes you appear thinner from a visual perspective 🙂
PS: I’m not Gothic although many people might think so LOL! Just that Goth is greatly part of my own original style 😀
One day when I was buying some cheap everyday earrings I thought about buying two different pairs and wearing two different earrings on both sides of my ears… don’t get it? Well here are my two simple and everyday pairs of earrings:
When I went shopping later, I saw that the trend was already out and very famous… There were on one side a lock and on the other a key… and other pairs of that sort on sale! 🙂
What do you think of this I-mix-together trend?
I find it creative and awesome 😀
I can even do this with feathers earrings! That’ll be even nicer ^^
