Properly Posh Playlist: Fun.

20130815-013831.jpg

Fun. is my absolute favorite band of all time. Due to their unique style and soothing beats, its very easy to fall in love with all of their music. The popularity of the song, “We Are Young”, increased the recognition of the band. A few months after the song was released, Fun. dropped another single called, “Some Nights”, which also hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Due to the success of the two singles, the band won Best New Artist and Song of the Year earlier this year. Fun. is an extremely fresh band full of vibrancy and creativity. Nate Ruess, the lead singer and songwriter, is a tremendous talent that has the ability to write catchy, yet meaningful lyrics and then, bring those words to life through his uniquely beautiful voice. In conclusion, Fun. is a band worth listening to! Don’t believe me, listen to my recommended songs for each of their albums.

Fashion Inspiration: Harajuku

Can you think of one place where you can go anytime to find fashion inspiration? Most people would think of the streets of Paris, the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, or Times Square in New York. Yet, I think of the shopping district Harajuku in Tokyo, Japan. Similar to the streets of LA or NYC, Harajuku draws in a lot of visitors in Japan due to their various foreign fashion vendors.The famous shopping complex and museum LaForet Harajuku ,located in the Harajuku district, has become a popular venue for citizens and tourists to shop. Modernly, the district is a reflection of the youth fashion and entertainment culture of Japan. The fashion you will usually view when you tour the district is audacious, anime cosplay. Although the style at the district can be very eccentric at times, their creativity and boldness is truly inspirational.

Fashion Inspiration: Pace Wu

The gorgeous Taiwanese model, Pace Wu, is very well known for her immaculate gowns and cocktail dresses. At every event she attends, Wu always steals the spotlight from other guests due to her beautiful, detail oriented gowns and accessories. Her clothing always has a feminine silhouette and intricate patterns. She truly has inspired me to add more patterns to my wardrobe and, hopefully, she can inspire you too 🙂

Can Tall Girls Wear Heels?

All my life I have felt insecure because of my height. When I looked in the mirror, I always perceived that my height made me look man-ish or EXTREMELY unattractive. It took me years to think, or even look at, a pair of heels. It was when I moved to the big city that I told myself, “Hey, I can wear whatever I want to wear!”And so, I started to wear heels at school. Then, the indignant comments began.

“OMG why are you wearing those? You are already tall enough!”

“Wow you are such a giant!”.

“Girl you need to take those off, you already make me feel short!”

I began to feel even more self conscious, to the point where I truly hated myself! I remember one time I lied on my bed and started to cry,immensely. I just kept replaying in my mind the harsh looks and crude comments I received from others that day. Finally, my mother saw that I was distressed and asked what was wrong. I told her about the rude remarks I was getting from my peers due to wearing heels. At that moment, my mother gave me precious advice that I have always remembered, even til this today!

1) DO WHAT YOU WANT: Why should you stop doing what you like because someone dislikes it? Skrew that! If you are not hurting yourself or others, then it’s perfectly fine. If you are tall and love your heels, then I say girl, “Werk it”!

2) THEY ONLY SAY THINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE INSECURE/JEALOUS: Think about it. Why would someone shorter than you care that you are wearing heels unless they are insecure about their height. Some people like to retaliate on others by making them feel less about themselves because,internally,they feel inferior. NEVER let someone make you feel bad about yourself because you are BEAUTIFUL:)

3) DON’T BE RUDE. JUST CALMLY SAY YOUR PLEA. If someone ask you, “Why do you wear heels?” Don’t become belligerent. I know, it’s very annoying when people always ask that question, but there is no reason to get upset or mad. Just calmly reply to it.

4) ALWAYS BE CONFIDENT. Don’t ever doubt yourself. No matter if you are 5’6 or 6’2, your height is beautiful. Heels are just a fashionable way for us to show off our gorgeous long legs 🙂 Always remember three things, “Pose.Strut.Werk!”
