If you are a usual reader of my blog, you can already guess I was completely delighted for the Hunger Games movie premiere. I was beyond ecstatic, and had been planning my outfit for a while. I knew I wanted to go as a tribute, but it was so hard looking like you were dressed up as a tribute when they wear pretty much normal clothes. I recently however came across this beautiful mesh hoodie. I had been wanting a mesh top for the longest time. I looked everywhere online. eBay always made me feel uncomfortable because all their mesh tops looked like they were made for strippers. I didn't a stripper look, I wanted more of an Alexander Wang S/S 2012 look.
So while at Wasteland, I almost yelled of excitement when I saw this on the racks. It looked so similar to the Wang collection. The price tag bothered me a little, but I told myself that if I pretended that this piece was real Alexander Wang, it would be such a bargain. So that is how I came to buy my first nonslutty mesh top.my fur coat event. I paired the top with my brother's mesh "basketball shorts". Someone actually had the audacity to say "IS VICTOR REALLY WEARING BASKETBALL SHORTS!???". I answered, "No, these are not basketball shorts when they are on my body. They become glamorous when worn by moi". My literature teacher asked me why I was wearing fishnets, and you know she was judging me. My friend Jessica recognized that I was going for a sporty look, which is big this season anyways.
Waiting in line outside in the cold was interesting. I came prepared with my dark leather jacket to go over my mesh hoodie. I really liked the way the hood consumed my face. I felt so mysterious, yet mystifying. I'm sure I came off as tribute while I pretended I was in the Hunger Games, camped out outside.
This is me playing in literature with my mesh veil.
