shape.This has that wonderful antique Gibson Girl style/shape commonly
called a pigeon front, for the way it billows out full in front.
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon, and things were going
Half-hidden behind a rack of glitzy cocktail dresses, Iris
kept a covert eye on the entrance to the fitting rooms. She ran an admiring
hand through the dresses, pretending to consider them. Her right wrist drooped
under the weight of several clothing items, all stiff with embroidery and
beading. It was that kind of shop – large but not ostentatious, all marble
flooring and soft golden light. The clothes were masterpieces in beauty and
comfort, and so expensive as to border on ridiculous. But Iris wasn’t bothered
about prices. She hadn’t been for a while.
Joshua is my ultimate bias and my favorite type of drabbles are the ones that go from friend to couple. Can you do something like that? :) Joshua + finally escaping the friendzone haha
I wrote a similar story (childhood friends to couple) like this long ago so you can check it out here if you’re interested! Here’s your request :) I’ll call this Joshua + Friendzone free. Enjoy! x

Joshua knew his heart was right, when he saw you walking around church with your family, new to the area. You didn’t know him at the time, but he knew you. You two went to the same church but you attended the morning services while he attended in the afternoons. He had his ways.
The first time he saw you, you were in a blue dress with a ribbon belt on one Sunday. He thought you were beautiful. Coincidentally, he too, wore a blue buttoned up shirt with a black neck tie. He smiled and felt butterflies in him, telling himself it was ‘destiny’.
Or so he thought.
“Sorry I can’t date you. I already have a boyfriend, and he’s overseas.” you told him kindly one day and not wanting to hurt his feelings as possible. “But I really appreciate your feelings, Joshua.”
Joshua forced a smile, yet hurt was seen on the surface. He just got friendzoned by the girl he admired the most.
“It’s okay. Is it alright if we stay as friends?”
“Of course! I need company around here, I’m still new.”
The following day, he walked around campus and into the library. His co-librarian, Wonwoo, noticed him not being himself.
“Hey Josh, what’s up?”
“Remember that girl I told you about? The one I like? And plays the guitar like me?”
Wonwoo flipped through the pages of the book he was reading. “Yeah? What about her?”
“I just got friendzoned.” he sighed, “I really like her though.”
Wonwoo looked up, adjusting his glasses. “Ooh, that’s tough.”
Joshua placed his head on the counter, “I know. I should’ve known that a pretty girl like her has a boyfriend.”
“There are plenty of girls out there. You know the saying, ‘There are many fishes in the sea’.”
“But my eyes hooked on her already.”
“I don’t know what to do with you.”
It has been half a year since you moved in to the neighbourhood. And also half a year since you broke up with your boyfriend overseas. You recalled on the conversation you had with him.
“You’re breaking up with me?”
“Y/N, I’m sorry. We just don’t click. We have fights here and there. And I’d rather be honest with you.” he paused. “I’m dating another girl long before you left and she’s great-”
“It’s okay. I get it. You don’t have to explain yourself.”
You wondered why. The moment you’ve closed doors with your ex-boyfriend, another door opened right away. The person behind that door was Joshua. When he confessed, you didn’t want to rush into a new relationship since you haven’t moved on.
So you wanted to remain friends with him for the time being. He offered a lot of time to show you around the malls and stores, and you definitely appreciated it.
Things got better when you two ended up at the same university. You both chose the same course and you would be lying to your heart if you said you didn’t fall for him. He was such a gentleman.
Joshua, on the other hand, never stopped loving you. When you told him you broke up with you ex long ago. You finally saw his effort in courting you.
“Joshua?” you called out.
“Hm?” he was writing his essay on his laptop.
“Remember the time you told me you liked me?” you fiddled with your fingers.
Joshua slightly jumped at this. “Uh- Yeah. W-what about it?”
You smiled as you tugged strands of hair behind your ear. “I like you, too.”
Joshua perked up quickly, his gaped mouth finally turned into a smile.
“Yeah?” you and Joshua held hands as you walked around the church hall.
“Someday, when the time is right, I’d love for us to say our ‘I do’s’ right here.” bringing you by the altar.
You smiled at him. “You’re so cheesy.”
“But it’s true. This place was where I first laid my eyes on you.”
You widened your eyes, but couldn’t stop yourself from smiling and blushing. “And?”
“Padmé’s casual dressing gown features vintage embroidered trim, decorative sequins, and handcrafted beaded tassels. Underneath the robe is an underdress of white satin with an empire waist and a purple lace overlay. Rouleaux ribbon belts the underdress and in the center of the ribbon hangs an amethyst stone drop. The headdress is pewter while the matching hair bands feature Celtic knots.”
This is inspired by Descendants of the Sun with a slight twist. Peacekeeper/Soldier Jackson rise!

There was a ringing. A high pitched white noise blocking out all other sounds. Dust flying in the air and filling your lungs. Your body ached, but moved freely–thankfully. You slowly steadied yourself, as the ringing dissipated and faded into the noises of complete chaos. Your eyes darted around, registering the current situation. Civilians in the distance screaming, rubble tumbling from a mile to just a few yards away from you. Your colleagues, running out of the building about a city block behind you, all staring at the chaos ensuing not too far ahead.
What's wrong with you, JD! Why is your lifelong dream to get rid of the Heathers?
It's not. My lifelong dream is to open my own haberdashery.
...What's a haberdashery?
[miserably] Oh, why does everyone ask that?! *walks away, then returns* A haberdashery is a men's retail store that sells men's accessories such as wallets, hats, buttons, belts, ribbons, and zippers! *storms off again*

Luella S/S 2001. It was a beaded key ring made by Katie Hillier for Katie Grand that first connected Luella Bartley and Hillier. Appropriately, the first items Hillier made for Bartley, who at the time was running her Luella label, were beaded belts with ribbon fringing. They appeared in this show, an ode to the 1980s, which featured The Go-Go’s on the soundtrack. Similar styles appeared a year later in the S/S 2002 show, which paid tribute to the American West, and was soundtracked by “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and “Get Ur Freak On” by Missy Elliott.
I know many of my friends have summer internships and jobs lined up, including myself. While I’m not planning on stumbling on a mystery like Nancy does in SSH, I certainly wouldn’t be opposed! To create a look inspired by that game, pair a cream blouse with a tan blazer, a tribal print skirt, a studded skinny belt, ribbon tie oxfords, a scalloped satchel, a gold phone case, and a jeweled headband. Handprint earrings, a pendant necklace, gold and pearl bracelets, a pyramid ring, and a triangle pair ring complete the look.
