Purple Plaid Barbie Girl




So I'm back to my usual, so-so stylish, sugar+spice+everything nice self... with my poping vivid stuff!


I wore this a few days back and encountered some snotty girls in the elevator on my way to the parking floor... I had shared the elevator with them once...way back, and they sang "Barbie Girl" from the mmid-90' band Aqua as soon as the elevator door closed and I got off my floor. That time, judging from my uber colorful outfit I already had a gut-feeling it was me they were making fun of... but part of me was saying "oh don't be silly" so I brushed it off. And then I just had to encounter them just one more time.









Guess what? They sang "Barbie Girl" again!!! Oh... then I knew the song was for me. Some buddies and would call me Barbie a couple of times back... in a good way... I know... all beacause they say I'm tall with long hair and fair skin and I had absolutely no idea if those elevator girls were singing it to mock me or bash me... so what did a BARBIE-GIRL like me do???



Smile and amuse myself... funny how some people can be.... and to think they were wearing the plainest graphic shirts and tightest bootleg jeans! Being different has its pros and cons... but if you know you're dressing up just because IT MAKES YOU HAPPY... then it is the right andFAB thing to do. We cannot please everyone right??







I remember one silly girl I wish to forget from a not so far past... she would bash whatever it is that I wore right in front of my face... and then next thing I knew she was wearing the exact rip-off... heehee... There are many types of haters..... better refered to as green-eyed monsters. Well sad to say, they either just too chicken scared to go out of the box and create their own style or just plain ignorant... and they wallow in making others who are not scared to dress up - miserable. I know many of us Personal Style and Fashion bloggers meet this kinds of people once or twice.... or many many MANY times in a lifetime, they should serve as our added inspirations to be the best of who we are... to be firm with what we decide to wear..... not because it pleases other people or conforms to the usual norms.... but because it is what defines who we are and makes us OH-SO-HAPPY and fulfilled!

I love that dress on you, Missy! :) The addition of purple- genius! One of my favorite colors and it goes so perfectly well with the candy colored dress and wedges. :) Yummy like a pop of magical color!!

Thanks for your comment. I rarely use tights myself, but do love them when I do! They're something so luxurious about wearing them (not to mention comfort!)

I wouldn't say it's getting colder down here, just cooler. But a cold front may be coming through for Christmas day, yay! I really hope it does! :)

Doll, you look amazing... so forget those who find the need to overtly critizize.
You're dressing for yourself, and that's what matters.
