RED RED RED

So…it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’m trying to think of what to write while also completing my NHS application (yes, I am the typical teenage procrastinator).

When I was younger I loved to write. It was one of the few things I thought I was good at and enjoyed. Now the stress from school and the impending doom known as college has turned it into a chore. But writing isn’t the only thing in my life that has become difficult.

Even dressing seems to acquire a lot more effort than it used to. However, it’s important to put effort. It’s important to find things that make life a bit more bearable. Which is why I am attempting to live my life more and not have my world revolve around school. As a start, I am going to do the things I used to love to do: write and dress up. What better way to knock both out of the park than writing a post about style. So here it is.

This month’s Project Sister Act edition: RED.

For those of you who don’t know, Project Sister Act is a fun way to show that style is timeless and that fashion is all about expression.

Here is my interpretation:

This is my very first professional photo shoot.

Usually my mother and I would do it by ourselves, but since in a year I’m going to college my mother will no longer have a photographer. So we thought it’d be a good idea to  hire someone.

And it’s easier since we finally have someone who actually knows what they’re doing.

I am wearing my American Eagle jeans with my Blue Age plaid jacket and kickass combat boots. My top, which perfectly coveys my inner thoughts, is actually a dress. (It was hell tucking it in and making it look decent.)

And, of course, I added a little bit of bling with my Alexander McQueen cuff (which I admit originally belonged to my mother).

She’s asking for it back now.

Doing this photoshoot felt incredibly weird initially.

Probably because it was at a decently populated park filled with little monsters running around and elderly couples who couldn’t help but stare. It was hard to bring my A game at first. But my mother’s constant Snapchatting (annoying but lovable) and our photographer’s bubbliness made the whole ordeal a lot more fun.

I must mention that that was the most exercise I had done the entire day.

When our photographer, Sofia, told me to jump, I thought “Oh hell to the no!”

Because, one, there were people walking by, and two, it would take a lot of effort.

The first try sucked.

I was apparently supposed to angle my legs in a specific way which, of course, flew out the window the second I lifted off of the ground.

But I must say, the end product is pretty awesome. I look like someone who could’ve been part of the High School Musical cast.

Word of advise: A photoshoot is never complete without having a Willow Smith moment.

Shout out to Sofia Emm who made me seem a lot cooler than I actually am! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Check out my fellow fashionistas rocking out in red:

Yes, we look awesome (insert applause).

Well I think that concludes our post today. And, just for a fun fact, I wrote this during my Study Hall while finishing my Physics homework (insert fist pump). I hope to be writing a lot more in the future. Preferably not leaving it to the last minute and resorting to do it during school. But knowing me, that’s probably what’s going to happen. Don’t judge me.

Have an awesome weekend. #FRIYAY

  1. Would it be utterly biased of me to say that I adore your look, Eve? It’s a wonderful representation of teenage angst meets a slight grunge feel, and I love that.

  2. The photo shoot looked like fun. It is always just me and my tripod, no fun at all. And the neighbors look at me like I am crazy, which could be possible. I love you outfit, and it is so cute. I would actually wear all of those pieces, but I would not look as cool as you!

  3. I am so flattered you called me a badass and want to be like me when you are 60 haha. Well I can tell you one benefit…: by then you don’t give a rat’s ass what people think when you do a photo shoot. Besides… you know what they think? “Hey… somebody is taking pictures.. Nice… Interesting… Something for me to watch. That is highly entertaining.” That’s all. People are not in the least as much interested in others as you think. Realizing that is very relaxing.
    As for your pictures… kudos to Sofia… the pictures she took are awesome. Indeed especially the one jumping and the portrait. I also like the flying hair. I hope you will have fun with writing and outfits. Remember … it hasn’t become a cliche for nothing… being healthy (and having enough to eat) is the most important thing. Second is having people who love you around you, friends, family. Anything else… side issues. Not that important. Be good, be nice and enjoy life.

    • Yeah, after a while I stopped caring about the people who stared. But mostly because I wear sunglasses with my outfits now ๐Ÿ™‚ . Sofia did do a great job, she’s the best. Even though the jumping she made me do took a lot of work. Apparently I wasn’t jumping correctly at first. I never knew their was a right way to jump haha. But the photos turned out awesome, so it was worth it.

  4. I do love the red on you. You all look so good in red. It’s one of those colorus that seems to bring out the best in all. You are right, it’s important to look after ourselves because if we neglect ourselves, no one will take care of us. I found that building a routine for myself when younger really helped get me organised when I aged (gracefully though lol).

    • I’m still trying to get my life together, but now that I’m much more aware of how stressed out I’ve been it has improved. And yes, red is definitely an awesome color. That and black ๐Ÿ™‚
