I used to always wear heels on stage but I just realized how much better I move in trainers. I feel so confident in heels and now I am wearing a lot of baggy trousers and boxers with crop tops! So many times I have chosen to wear something just because it’s cute and I have spent the entire time pulling it down to make sure my ass isn’t coming out.

Summary: ( Ceo!Bucky) You and Bucky spending some quality time together after him being at work nonstop.
Paring: Bucky x Reader
Warnings: Very fluffy and flashbacks in italic
You wake up with the sunlight coming from the window; you turn around to see your boyfriend sleeping peacefully next to you. It’s being a while since you woke up next to him, Bucky was working nonstop on his company for the last couple of months, waking up earlier every day and getting home late every night.
You start to trace your fingers on his jaw, he looks so peaceful and happy that you can’t help but smile as you look at him. You get off the bed, putting his red sweater that was on the floor going to the balcony to his penthouse.
If the 1930s witnessed the birth of the horror film as a genre, the 1940s was the genre’s coming of age. Under producer Val Lewton, many of the most notable and enduring horror films of the 40s refreshed and advanced the motifs already finding firmament in the genre. At the same time, Lewton, Jacques Tourneur and other filmmakers established new conventions still used today.
Cat People (1942) was Val Lewton’s first big hit and it’s no wonder why. The characters feel fully modern and there is greater focus on how characters cope psychologically with the horrors that beset them. The costuming and visual design is tight and makes the most of a small budget. The cinematography was done by Nicholas Murasca, who also shot the stellar Out of the Past (1947) and was nominated for an Oscar for his work on I Remember Mama (1948). Simone Simon’s performance as Irena is convincingly lonely, brooding, and neurotic without ever going over the top.
The film begins when Irena Dubrovna, a sketch artist, runs into Oliver “Ollie” Reed, a marine engineer, while working on sketches of a black panther at the Central Park Zoo. They hit it off and she invites him to tea. Irena lives alone in a beautiful brownstone apartment in Manhattan. She admits that her only friends are her coworkers, who we never see in the film. Irena relates a legend about her village in Serbia. When her people were enslaved, they turned to witchcraft and satan worship. King John freed them from slavery and killed the satan worshippers, but it’s rumored that the most wicked survived. Irena and Ollie quickly fall in love, though, oddly, they never even kiss. They marry and still Irena maintains a distance. Ollie worries that Irena is obsessed with old-country folklore and it’s keeping her from committing fully to their marriage. Irena becomes increasingly upset that she isn’t able to be like other women. Her jealousy and neuroses are gradually building up. Ollie’s co-worker, Alice, suggests she go to see a psychologist Dr. Judd. Dr. Judd’s therapy seems to help but it’s too late for Irena and Ollie’s marriage. Ollie has fallen in love with Alice and Irena’s paranoia has been borne out. Can Irena cope? Are her fears about ancestral legends rational after all?
Like with Dracula’s Daughter (1936), which I covered for the 1930s, Cat People deals with similar conflicts of identity. However, unlike the Countess Zaleska, Irena isn’t sure who she really is and we follow her through the film on her journey - and get lost with her between the lines of reality and the imagined. It’s a fascinating and a modern feeling movie.
The costuming and styling in Cat People is incredibly consistent. The costumes were done by Renie, a very prolific costume designer primarily for RKO. Irena is a professional woman and her wardrobe reflects that. She’s always in suits and stylish dresses that keep a to the menswear-inspired silhouette popular in the 1940s that reflected the increasing commonality of women working outside the home.
Irena’s stylish suits set her clearly as a modern working woman living in a very fashionable city but she’s always fitted with a few elements that put her just a touch out of step. Irena’s trademarks are large decorative brooches or corsages on her lapel, never wearing hats, and always wearing sling-back heels, even if there are inches of snow on the ground.
Cat People also uses one of my favorite conventions in horror movies, altering makeup, hair, and costuming as a character descends into whatever curse, thrall, or old evil is encroaching on their identity. It’s done quite subtly in this film. They take advantage of the season changing to have her whip out a winter coat of a dark fur-like material to evoke the black panther she has an increasingly morbid connection to. Following Ollie breaking up with her, her eye makeup gets just a bit darker. As Irena’s curse overtakes her, her hair gets a little less well-kempt and she’s seen less often with her previously ever-present head scarf.
The key elements of Irena’s costuming are her headscarf, tailored skirt suits with long-sleeved blouses and jackets, low slingback heels, and an ostentatious piece of jewelry on her lapel. And, of course, the black overcoat.
Since the costuming is pretty conservative, there shouldn’t be much difference between a closet and full cosplay. So this will just be one look with suggestions on how to ramp it up or down.
Makeup in the 1940s was relatively natural. One the US was involved in WWII, many products were unavailable so minimalist looks were in. However, wearing red lipstick was a must and considered a patriotic gesture.
First I laid down a base with foundation and powder for a matte look. Powder alone would be more accurate for the character IRL because foundation was still not a product most women would have worn in the 1940s. Do what you’re most comfortable with!
Irena’s eye makeup is minimal, focused primarily on lashes. I covered my eyelids with a neutral shade not too different from my skin tone. Then I took a taupe grey and ran it across my mobile lid, blending it very lightly above the crease. I took what was left on the brush and ran it along my lower lashline. I mixed a little bit of green in with the taupe and brought that only over the mobile lid to deepen the shadow. Green was one of the eyeshadow colors available on the market in the 40s and it was trendy to use shadows that matched your eye color.
The lashes are one of Irena’s most striking features, so I went into the upper waterline with black liner to make my lashes look thicker.
I then applied a few generous coats of black mascara. If you don’t want to use false lashes, I’d recommend a good fiber mascara. I thought the falsies were a little too dramatic for Irena so I went without. Either way it should look reasonably natural.
Brows should be lightly filled with powder just slightly darker than your hair and not too blocky at the head. Irena’s are sharply tapered at the ends, so I used brow pencil for that.
Irena’s lips are small and pouty with a well defined cupid’s bow. I blended concealer into the sides of my lips and reduced the size of my lower lip just slightly to make them look more even. It’s the 1940s so of course I went for red lips starting with a lip brush to carve out the shape and filled it in with lipstick from the bullet.
To get matte lips that will stay for ages using a traditional lipstick, this is my great aunt’s method: Apply a full coat of the lipstick, use tissue to blot, then hold a piece of tissue to your lips and take a transparent setting powder on a fluffy brush and blend across the lips, lastly, apply another light coat of the lipstick to bring the color back up.
Being 5 months pregnant was really starting to piss me
off. I could barely fit any of my maternity clothes anymore. Justin and I were
already late for a night out with all of our friends, but I just couldn’t find
something to wear.
“Baby, are you going to be ready soon?”
Justin asked as he came into our walk-in closet. I rested my right hand on my
baby bump and gently caressed it.
“I don’t know what to wear!” I complained.
Justin lightly chuckled and came over to me.
“Go put on your makeup, then I’ll find you
something,” Justin told me. I happily sighed and pecked his lips.
“Thank you, baby!” I told him, then I went
into our bathroom and did my makeup and hair. I decided to just wear my hair in
a low ponytail, and then a kind of casual makeup. I finished and went out of
the bathroom, where I saw the most beautiful dress laying on the bed. I had
never seen the dress before, but it was my size!
“Justin, where did you get this dress from?”
I asked Justin as I put it on.
“I bought it a few days ago, do you like
it?” he asked me as he helped me zip the dress.
“Like it? I love it!” I told him, then I
turned around and wrapped my arms around his neck.
“Thank you,” I told him, then I pecked his
lips and afterward I went into our walk-in closet to find a pair of shoes to
I had always been able to wear heels, so I found a
pair of turquoise heels to match the dress.
“Okay, I’m ready now,” I told Justin as I
grabbed my things.
We met the others at the restaurant we had made
reservations at. We greeted everyone and then we all sat down.
“Y/N I love your dress, where did you get it
from?” Gigi asked me as she sat down beside me.
“I actually don’t know, Justin picked it out for
me,” I told her, “If it hadn’t been for him we wouldn’t have been
here yet,” I told her, which made her chuckle.
“Whoa, your boyfriend has a really nice taste for
clothes, to you, not so much for himself,” Kendall said, which made me
“You’re right,” I told her, which made
“Hey! I have feelings too, remember?” he
asked us as he pouted. I bit down on my lip and winked at him. Justin sat down
beside me and placed his hand on my baby bump.
“Is she kicking?” he asked me. I shook my
head and looked at him.
“But she’s laying kinda awkward because I can
feel her laying mostly on my right side,” I told him. I grabbed Justin’s
hand and moved it over what I believed was her head.
“This is so unbelievable!” Justin said, then
everyone felt the need to feel my belly. They eventually stopped as I told them
my princess was pressing my bladder, and it didn’t really help that they were
pressing my belly, too.
About 4 months later I was ready to give birth, but I
and Justin’s princess apparently wasn’t ready to come out, so I went a whole 13
days over my due date, which was pissing me off, and clearly Justin could feel
that because he spent most of his hours in his studio leaving me at home,
completely alone! I could barely get out of bed because of my swollen feet and
my really big belly so I spent most of my hours laying in bed watching TV and
reading my “What to expect when you’re expecting”-book. But one day I
decided not to stay in bed. I was actually feeling really great, which Justin
noticed, so he decided to stay home.
We spent the whole day figuring out what clothes we
would bring out little princess home in until I suddenly felt a really
uncomfortable stabbing pain in my lower belly. I groaned and started making
faces. Justin was quick to react. He grabbed me and helped me downstairs, where
he made me sit on the couch.
A few minutes later the stabbing pains came back,
which made me scream, it was really hurting.
“I’m going to take you to the hospital, maybe our
princess is on her way,” Justin said, then he helped me up and got me out
to our car.
We arrived at the hospital 20 minutes later. Justin
was actually taking this like a real man, which made me smile widely.
Justin got me inside, where he called out someone to
bring me to a private room. A nurse came over to us and brought us to the room
Justin apparently had reserved in case I went into labor before my due date, or
in this case 13 days after my due date.
“The doctor will be here to check on you really
soon, in the meantime, I suggest you get changed into something else because
jeans will be really hard to give birth in,” the nurse said, which made me
The nurse left, then Justin helped me undress and then
get dressed in one of the hospital’s shirts. I then a few seconds later got a
contraction. Justin grabbed my hand and helped my breathe to make me focus on
The contraction soon went away and the doctor came
into our room.
“Hello, Mrs. Bieber,” Doctor James said as
she came into the room.
“I’m just going to check how open you are,”
she told me, then she made me open my legs.
“Looks like I don’t even need to check, you are
definitely 10 centimeters open,” she told me. “I’m just gonna get
your midwife, then hopefully at the next contraction you’ll be able to
push,” she told me, then she went to get a midwife.
I looked up at Justin and smiled at him.
“How come you take this so calmly?” I asked
him as I grabbed his hand.
“I think I’ve read your book about pregnancy like
3 times,” he told me with a chuckle.
“When?” I asked him.
“When you were asleep, I could never sleep, so to
make time pass I just read your book,” he told me, which made me smile at
“I’m sorry I’ve been so pissed the last few
weeks,” I told him, then I started crying.
“Aww baby, it’s totally okay!” Justin told
me, then he pecked my forehead.
Not even an hour later I was able to hold me little
princess in my arms.
Justin and I had decided to call her Alba Victoria
Bieber. Justin had chosen Victoria, I had chosen Alba.
Today it was Christmas Eve, which meant Alba would be
celebrating her first Christmas. I had been so excited for this day, so had
Justin. Alba was only 7 months old, but it was like she understood something
way going on, even though I know it’s kind of impossible.
For Justin and I, Alba had been the easiest baby in
the whole world. She slept a lot, and she barely ever cried, which had made us
want to try and have another child. I was planning on telling Justin and our
families that I was pregnant again at dinner.
At dinner, we all sat down at the table. Justin was
feeding Alba and everyone else was talking to each other. I decided this would
be the perfect time to tell them. So I cleared my throat and gently used my
knife and my glass to get their attention. Everyone looked at me. I stood up
and cleared my throat once again.
“I know you were all caught up in your own
conversations, but I have something important to say,” I told everyone.
Pattie smiled at me, so did my mom, I think they already knew what I was about
“First of all, thank you to all of you for making
Alba’s first Christmas amazing,” I said. I looked down at Justin and
grabbed his hand, I squeezed it lightly, then I looked around.
“Because Alba has been so easy Justin and I
decided to try to have another child, which has finally happened, and we are expecting
another child in about 7 or 8 months,” I told everyone. Justin gasped and
stood up, then he wrapped his arms around me and hugged me tight.
“Is this really true? Are we having another
child?” he asked me. I nodded my head and wrapped my arms around his neck,
then I placed my lips on his. Everyone else was completely quiet until Alba
decided to start laughing. She most had thought everything was too quiet. We
all looked at her and started laughing with her, this was truly perfect!

Suga: this guy is not every tall, so he would love when you just wore regular sneakers or flats. He would get used to you always wearing heels but one day when you both went out and you opted for sneakers, he loved being able to stand behind you and rest his chin on your head and getting to be all cuddly with you since he is now taller.
J-Hope: this guy is about average height, so you wearing heels wouldn’t affect him very much. He loved your sleek, sexy look with heels, but he also thought you were adorable when you would wear your flat adidas all-stars. He loved having you feel comfortable with him and comfortable with your height.
Rap monster: He loves a sexy woman, so he would LOVE you always wearing heels, BUT he enjoys when he sees your dressed down with some red converse on and all naturally beautiful. He would love your height since he is pretty tall. He would pick on you but only because he loves you!

One day he secretly hid all your heels, so you only could wear flats and when you were ready to leave for a date, he jumped in awe at how adorably small you are!!!
Jimin: JIMIN WOULD LOVE THAT YOU ARE SHORT! He loves to feel like a man, a protector, a hero for his S/O, so with you being shorter than him will increase his manliness ego A LOT. He would become overprotective and would always smile whenever he saw his shorty walking his way!
Jungkook: he would tease you non-stop! This boy is really growing and is getting super tall which has me shook and probably would shock his S/O! Since he started to get bored with teasing Jimin, he decided to change things about and make fun of you and your height. The first few times it was funny, but when he started to hurt your feelings, he would immediately stop and pull you into a hug while saying he loves you.

When Dick and Kori go to concerts together, Dick is almost always on Kori’s shoulders so that he can get a better view
Kori is always self conscious about wearing heels because she doesn’t want Dick to think she is “too tall” but anytime Kori does put on heels Dick responds the same way, with a two syllable “daaaaaaMMMMNNNN”
Mar’i likes the fact that her dad is shorter then her mom because it makes her feel special. All the couples she sees on TV show a taller man and shorter woman but the fact that her mom and dad are the opposite makes her happy.
If they are standing still for a long amount of time, Kori will rest her arm on Dick’s shoulder. She is the only person that Dick would willing be an arm rest for
When they sit on the couch together, Kori is the one who pulls Dick closer and he rests his head on her chest while she holds him. When they tried to do it the other way it wasn’t comfortable and they prefer this way anyway.
When they walk, they can’t walk holding hands for the most part so instead Dick grabs her arm and holds onto it. Kori not only prefers this to hand holding but loves when Dick does this and usually holds onto his arm as a response.
