For some reason, “Time to grow up” this sentence keeps echoing in my mind recently, even though I have no idea why and what exactly I would like to do to force myself to grow up. Perhaps, I have just got too much pressure from my job – somehow I was squeezed into a corner in a situation from which I have to find a way out: stay or leave; keep calm till death or scream out for a revolution, which means I don’t have time to indulge in dreams anymore. Time to grow up; however, maybe the meaning here is more psychological – my fear to open up myself and my fear of getting hurt, to which I think I have to find the solution, and it is this that I want to grow up.
For the LOVE and PINK theme this time, I picked one lovely pink and purple Miu Miu shirt from my closet that I got on my last trip to New York. My fashion-formula is always to get one favourite item first and then to develop the whole look. Fashion is like writing an essay for me; the first stage is to set up the theme, and then the topic sentences which are equal to the main items of the outfit, and everything else is supplementary which altogether leads to the perfect look! Main course and siders; we have to pick it right, and the balance is always most crucial for everything – not too much nor too less, combined which we call – fashion sense.
As a perfectionist (I bet all artists have the same problem that of being super picky) I can’t bear any flaws in my fashion shoots; it is essential, I think, to make all the photos perfect, including the outfit itself, the shooting set and other tools. For shooting this outfit, I found a perfect location to match my PINK girl theme which is Callixto’s new shop at 11 MeeLun Street – with the pink house as my shooting background and the unique painting of Albert Einstein holding a sign with LOVE IS THE ANSWER on it.
My way to grow up is not about giving up all the fantasy I want to have in my life, but refers to transforming the “unrealistic” parts into the practical, and make it real, which are all because of my passion and my love for life. So, whatever the question is about, LOVE IS THE ANSWER.
