At the end of the day, we are all just lost kids flying to a lego city.
Lost Girls in a Lego City
I'm not sure why, but for some reason looking at Seoul from across the river made me feel like I was looking at a Lego City. All the high-rise buildings against the hazy skyline and hidden along green hills had such a surreal feeling that reminded me of artwork from a story book. I felt so small standing under the cement bridge next to the water with the city in sight; and every time a subway car passed above me, I couldn't help but think of how many people there are and how many people we will never see again. I guess through this set of photos is this feeling of being lost and trying to find yourself.
Every year I get so excited for autumn to come. Not because of school, not because of pumpkins, but because of the style and trends of the fall season. The weather is chillier than summer but not freezing like winter, which makes it the perfect temperature to play with layers.
I styled this outfit three different ways with the key points being the coat from Coming Step and headwear by Stampd and Kiryanna Designs.
For the first look, I wanted to keep everything clean and simple. Thus, I wore everything as is. Because the coat itself is oversized, it's best to wear tighter clothing on the inside to give emphasis to your figure.
The second look shines with boyish charms. It's kinda crazy how wearing a beanie can completely change the vibe of your look. I chose this specific beanie because I liked how the bold text pops out from the darkness of the outfit. Same goes for the t-shirt. The small print makes all the difference. Here, I used the coat as a skirt by tying it around my waist. This gives the design on the back of the coat a chance to shine while looking pretty edgy.
Lastly, this is the look that inspired the title of "Lost Girls." Looking at the outfit from afar, you can't help but have a sense of curiosity. I felt like a fantasy character with how the exaggerations of the beanie's pompom and structure of the coat. It goes beyond the average shapes and lines, pushing boundaries.
In the end, "to die will be an awfully big adventure" and "to live will be an awfully big adventure." We're constantly on an adventure of being lost and found with ourselves, and it's the journey along the way that we realize who we truly are. The way we dress is only one aspect of ourselves and that's the fun part. We get to decide what we want to be portrayed as and can start over every single day.
