Although many people know me as a strong, determined and no-nonsense type of girl, very few actually know I'm quite a soft- hearted and an emotional person from the inside. I got upset easily and took a long term to get over it in the past. I never like yelling at people or getting involved in any conflicts or dramas. I used to be bullied in high school, at work and cheated in life. Living alone in a foreign country for many years has taught me to be independent and strong to survive. I would hide my weakness and insecurity away from people and try to act that I was fine. I would never cry in front of people no matter how much I hurt. Living a life that way made me so tired and feel like giving up many times.
Years later, I learned that feeling insecure and weak is fine, and I don't have to hide my emotions. The moment I started to let go, I began to enjoy my life, every bit of it. I have freedom to express myself, to do what I love, and to be the woman I want to be. I can be a business woman at day, a rock chic at night, and a preppy school girl once a while. But I'm pretty sure, a sweet looking girl like this, in a chiffon midi skirt, off-shoulder lace top with a floral crown on my head, is something that you have never seen before. You might find this off-shoulder lace dress that I wore as a top familiar from this blog post, but that's about all.
What was the inspiration behind this fragile and dreamy outfit? I actually don't know. Perhaps the golden hour when the sun was about to set has evoked the femininity in me. I just wanted to show you the soft and emotional side of me. You happen to be one of the few lucky people who have seen it.
What are your thoughts?
