Frills. Lace. Pearls. More frills. Short ultra-feminine dresses. GIRL CLOTHES.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??? A few days ago I went shopping with a friend and found myself strangely attracted to the weirdest stuff. At first, I just unknowingly let it control me. I browsed through various stores, always pausing to finger some dress or top that I could never, not in a bilillion years, pull off wearing. Later, I noticed this erratic behavior and looked into the depths of my brain for the reason.
THE REASON, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IS THAT WATCHING K-DRAMAS HAS SCREWED UP MY TASTES!!! I no longer make a beeline for the comfortable chill-out wear or the simple monochromic dresses. I used to see colorful dressy clothes in the store and mentally label them as ‘tacky’ shuddering at how girly they were. I’m not a rat, I like nice clothes, but only if they’re understated, simple and in a sensible color that wouldn’t look bad on me. I used to have it all figured out. I know my body type, and thought that anything other than what I’m used to wouldn’t suit me. I used to think that the simpler a dress was, the classier it looked. I still do think that, but the fact that the ‘other’ types of clothes are now calling to me is SCARY. I ended up buying a white lacy sleeveless top with a pearly rhinestoney work at the neckline that looked SOOOO PWETTYYY… I think I need rehab. THIS IS SOMETHING I KNOW I WILL REGRET, because I am not a lithe, stick thin Asian girl with mile long legs. I know I’ll look like a cow with no taste, no, make that a fat pregnant cow with no taste, but I’m still doing it. Watching K-dramas turned out to have more side-effects than I thought. Fellow watchers, consider this a friendly warning from a fellow addict, in too deep to get out.
