42 Sad Faces and A Yellow Dress

If you think that I sketched 42 line art faces on individual pieces of paper and stuck them altogether just so I can make a really cool backdrop just to take my photos, then yes, you are definitely right! hahaha.

A girl's gotta do what she has to do. Apparently, after finally putting up my backdrop, I realized that all the faces I drew were all sad and no piece is actually happy. Here's the thing, I think I have an affinity for turning my sadness and bad life experiences into my art as means of self-preservation. However though, I don't think I have to explain myself for that but I just feel like saying so since there are quite a few who keeps on asking why am I sad? haha. Well, there's no denying that but I just find it helpful to make them into art instead of dwelling over it. I mean, art helps me cope up so yeah. :)

And since I have 42 sad faces, this Casual Sleeveless Yellow Short Mini Dress is perfect for sprinkling some happiness!

The dress is comfy to wear and it's not that short on me. I love the shade of yellow too. However though, the material is very, very thin which means I have to wear something underneath so my undies won't show. You can't wear this alone because the fabric is thin. But you can work it out!

It's a waist tie dress so you can totally adjust the fit. For reference, I'm wearing a size small and my height is 5'4 1/2" - 5'5". The dress is perfect for summer but since it's scorching hot from where I am from, it's perfect all year round!

I paired it with a black ankle boots to make the whole outfit a bit edgy. And I love how the yellow dress complimented my blue hair.
