It's been a long weekend alone for me...well, me and the cat anyway. The BF and family members were gone for the holiday which left me with enough free time on my hands to do all the girly things that should be to young for my age/enjoyment bracket, instead of doing the things that I should have been doing but since there was no one here to remind me to do those things, I just enjoyed myself. You know, trying things like completely different makeup styles, spending hours making different outfits in my closet and braiding my hair...
I purchased this sequined tank at Old Navy about 7 years ago, and this is the first time I've ever worn it. It really should have left my closet years ago, but sheesh, it was only $10 and full sequins, not just the front but the back as well! Seriously a steal...and now I finally found a way to wear it without feeling like I'm wearing a dance costume!
Anyway, playing with how I look started to get me thinking, what if you could change over a long weekend, become a completely different person? Ok, maybe longer than a 3 day weekend, but I knew someone who did just that over a summer. She left the 7th grade as Naomi, you know, typical shy but fun girl with a bad sort of pixie cut (NOT cute,)

and returned to 8th grade as Madonna, I swear to you! Eye liner, big hair, and slinky dress, (extremely slinky for 8th grade!) The boys went crazy, and they were right, she was a knock out, with an attitude to match, and most certainly defined herself as an individual in my small town. Her personality matched her new look. No longer was she the mousy girl I remembered but much more outspoken and definitely not shy! This was a whole new person! Secretly I was part in awe, part jealous...she was brave!
And while I admired her spirit, I was not that bold...although I did go through a neon puffy paint phase...(I was a crafty kid.)
But what about you? Are you or have you been brave enough to do a complete body/mind change? Does what you wear reflect in your personality?
