Sixty's Style
I used to love to make fun of the styles from the 1960’s and 1970’s. You know the style with wide bell bottomed pants, big shrit collars, long hair for guys and girls, etc., the hippie look. I don’t mind if women wear wide bell bottoms but for guys? (pleaaase! I hope the style never comes back for men). I just can’t imagine seeing guys wearing Elvis Presley’s bell bottom pants, long hair with huge glasses everywhere on the street (please take a few moments, be silent and imagine it) .

Vice versa, the other day my husband and I went to our local GAP store and I saw men’s summer styles full of bright color tops and jeans. Skinny jeans and preppy looks. All style for skinny guys. My husband said

“No way I will wear skinny jeans”

(hehe it’s hard for me to imagine my husband wearing skinny jeans. It can be a nightmare for me)

Isn’t that funny how style and fashion repeats itself. Like other things in life, history, government, everything in this world seems to repeating itself.

The 2012 style is about color and I want to be part of it. I don’t want to miss the train. But like most women/bloggers out there who can wear skinny jeans, not so much with me. I just can’t find myself look right in skinny jeans. But I never give up hope in clothing department.  With my strong desire to wear colored jeans, I opted instead for wide leg ones.

Now I feel like I’ve gone through a time tunnel, back to the sixty’s revolutionary days. I am part of the hippie movement . Arghh!!  I forgot  to wear a headscarf and “bug-eyed” glasses.

I think I’m loving this style. You know, sometimes inside me, I always want to have freedom &  feel rebellious (in a nice way of course). Sometimes I want to dress like a hippie, sometimes gypsy. Whichever is more comfortable.

In every girl’s heart, there’s always a dream to be a princess. Dream to walk like a princess, dress like a princess. When I was young I always pretended to be Cinderella. I played by myself. As a single player (since my sisters didn’t want to play with me), I acted double. Sometimes I was Cinderella, and then I changed my voice  into the step mother’s or to somebody else.

I always wanted to wear a long skirt since I was a kid, but since I was petite aka short, I always thought long skirts would overwhelm me and make me look even shorter. Not anymore. At least not until I found this cute skirt from Forever 21. The vertical lines in the skirt elongate my body and make me look taller.

Once I wore this skirt, my attitude suddenly changed. My feminine side came out. I wanted to walk and talk like a princess.  I found the lace handbag at a Goodwill store and it completed my princes look. I know this is probably perfect for spring, but since fashion has no rules… just go for it. I’m my own designer.

Here we were walking at the park, a date night with my husband before we went to see “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” It’s a great Movie. It’s worth seeing.  Anyway, after the movie and nice dinner we went home. I’m such an imaginative person, after seeing the movie my tomboy side came out. Once I got home, changed into pajamas, I then transformed into a mission impossible agent.

Ps: My tips for petite girl, if you want to wear long skirt that won’t overwhelm you, get a long skirt with vertical lines in it or made of soft material that falls on your body. Flowy but soft. Combine them with a fitted top that covers your hips. Voila… Nobody knows that you are 4”11 like me :)
