I’m so glad I match my reflection in my head

May 13, 2010

You know how you have an image of yourself in your head? of how you want to look like, what personality you portray, like “I’m the arty girl with soul” or “I’m the glamorous party diva”. It’s basically an image of self expression that you try to maintain.

I hate it when my reflection doesn’t match the image in my head. I hate it when I think my reflection or picture is wider, or I think I look dowdy or wannabe. I hate it when my reflection isn’t as cool as the image of myself in my head.

Yesterday was that kind of a day but thankfully, today totally made up for it. I felt beautiful today, and myself. I love the ethnic print of this kaftan dress, I love the colours, and I just love how comfortable I felt and looked in it.

I kind of lean towards styles that are arty, bohemian, casual chic, ultra girly or glamourous, and occasionally something edgy. I love it when an outfit says “this is who I am” vague as that might sound.

Anyway, this is one of those outfits 🙂


The kaftan dress is from a kiosk at Ibn Batutta mall- It’s a brand called Kariza and they usually sell those convertible silk dresses but they had a few shawls and kaftans as well.


Forever21 belt


Earrings were a gift from my lovely cousin in Melbourne.

I’m considering a treat tomorrow- a manicure or a blow dry? I haven’t been to a salon in ages.

Hope you’re having a great day ♥
