Sometimes, I feel like I'm playing dress-up. It gets interesting when it's too the point that an experimental outfit starts to lose its hint of "me"-ness. As you may or may not know, I have a mild self-diagnosed case of face blindness where I find it super hard to recognize faces. So with that, it really messes me up with even a simple change like dying hair or putting on a pair of glasses. As weird as this sounds, I kind of don't recognize myself in these photos. I mean, I KNOW it's me...but if you were to bring in a bunch of Asians, put them in the same outfit, give them huge glasses, and tie their hair up, I'm not sure that I'd be able to pick myself out of that crowd.
Somehow, the glasses paired with the hair triggers (or doesn't trigger) something in my brain that makes it difficult to realize that this is me. I'm so used to my long hair down and a glasses-free face that this combo just feels unnatural to me. It's a very strange sensation.
Or maybe I'm just bitter about the fact that this shirt was incredibly uncomfortable. The slightly ruffled neckline was itchy. Thank goodness it was only $5 so I don't have to wear it again.
What I'm wearing:
-Polka dot shirt
-Black wedge booties
