militarytabi // Day 142 tabi on writing to a letter himself 5 years later: “To make it very simple, I’ll write it on this white paper. It feels embarrassing to write something to myself on coloured paper.”
Okay, baby, if it makes you feel better,
you can imagine
your worst case scenario.
You can imagine a monster
but that doesn’t make it
Yena Sharma Purmasir from ‘Dream Deferred’ from her book When I am Not There
(This book honestly is very quickly becoming everything I ever wanted in my father. He isn’t dead. He is very much alive and in good health and comes home every night but he doesn’t rly feel like my father. I am SO thankful Yena wrote this book. I didn’t know I needed it until I had it.)
As far as Prada collections go, Spring 2010 was very straight-to-the-point and easy to digest. No hidden political or social messages for which Miuccia is so famous for. It was like the Prada girl had decided to just f it all and take a month long vacation.. while still looking really chic of course. Some might say it made this collection a little boring but nearly seven years later I still adore it, which I reckon is saying something. I don’t really talk much about the beauty looks in shows because beauty is not my forte in the slightest, but I really digged the look on display here. Messy hair kept somewhat tidy in pigtails, bright red lip, barely any makeup anywhere else and clear nails. The clothes themselves had a similar vibe, starting out with quite basic styling but then the embellishments and the prints rolled out (the lil touristy beach scenes are still so great). I do have to make mention of the dope crystal chandelier dresses and the equally as dope crystal chandelier shoes (and then I have to direct you to the campaign video starring Rasa Zukauskaite), because I STILL, nearly seven years later, dream of wearing the shoes and dancing around like Rasa in the video. Apparently Vanessa Traina bought three pairs because of course, why wouldn’t you?
