Butterfly

"In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!"
- Dr. Seuss

The world would be so beautiful if we all live in Dr. Seuss's fantasy! Since I was little, I was always fascinated by the life cycle and the beauty of a butterfly but I was never lucky enough to end up in a classroom (elementary school) that taught butterflies and I heard the students actually get to see how a real caterpillar turn into a butterfly. Instead, I ended up in  a class that taught frogs which I had extreme phobia for! So even years from now, I am still very in love with butterflies and a year ago, my friend and I did something extremely foolish. The story began when we found a couple of tiny "caterpillars" on a tree and we were extremely excited that each of us kept two in a jar. We were feeding them with leaves and watching them grow day by day. Not long while, we began seeing "cocoon" forming which add even more to our excitement. After a few days, the "caterpillars" began shedding their "cocoons" but instead of butterflies, we found four transformed worms came out.  And of course, our reaction was two women screaming like crazy and instantly we threw them away. Yes, two silly women in their twentys were feeding and staring at who-know-what-they-are furry worms for all those times. Fun times!

So, today I brought to you a look inspired by the beauty of a butterfly. Let me know what you guys think.

  11. O_o holy shit I had no idea that was even possible! I would have seriously died if that happened to me you poor, poor things. Must be specific types of caterpillars that transform? Well, I've learned something new today! Loving the inspired face art and ear swag!

  40. I think doing silly things is part of growing up and it makes great stories. :) Your hair looks great in these images. I wish I could get mine to do that but mine isn't quite as long.

    It's too bad your local LV doesn't do much with their displays. I don't shop at their store but I really like their windows, they do such a good job and it's what started me photographing window displays.

    I'm not excellent at sewing but I'm okay and trying to get better. In school as a kid they made me do more complicated things since I would finish things so fast and then have nothing to do. :) You could start getting better by using the fabrics you have for pillow covers {and just put it on throw pillows you already have} or making tank tops since they are pretty simple.

  48. I love the quote at the beginning. I love how you paired stronger accessories with this feminine butterfly-inspired look. I really like the contrast.

    I must be more careful when I purchase drugstore products next. My weekend is horrible TT^TT My wallet got stolen right after I withdrew money and I am so broke now. Just a bad week.
