Stripes, Leather, Velvet

Stripes, Leather, Velvet 1 Stripes, Leather, Velvet 2 Stripes, Leather, Velvet 3 Stripes, Leather, Velvet 4 Stripes, Leather, Velvet 5

Wearing:
Forever 21 dress worn as a top
ASOS leather circle skirt / skater skirt
Vintage corduroy blazer (made by my mom in the 70s)
Miu Miu patent leather mary janes
Prada sunglasses
Burberry watch
Estee Lauder "Stay Scarlet" lipstick

Whenever I wear skirts or shorts, I always wonder if people notice the scars on my knees.  I feel like they're really noticeable.  Aren't they?  It probably doesn't help that I have a few new massive bruises in those same areas.  I got the biggest scar almost 3 years ago when I fell on a trail.  The others came later on another trail.  Apparently I fall and scrape my knees once every year.  A few weeks ago, I gained another little scar and a few bruises.

This may sound strange, but I actually kind of like them.  They remind me that I kept running on the trail even while I had throbbing pain and blood dripping down my legs.  It's kind of a gruesome metaphor for the troubles in your life, but hear me out:  If life tries to pull you down or knock you down, get right up and keep running.

In other news, I want to share some vacation photos with you guys.   BUT...I have yet to upload them onto my laptop.  I went to Yosemite for the first time this past week.  I had the best time!  I'm actually still sore from all the hiking we did.  More on my trip on my next post.

  5. As someone who also has scars and bruises on my legs right now, I think you should display your body with pride. Being active is good. Doing things is good. We all have some "wear and tear" from physical activity which is a sign of a good life.

  48. Hey Azu! Looking good as usual! I'm in love with your legs and shoe collection ;) Answering your question from ur comment on my blog, I honestly don't have much of an idea of whether food is GMO or organic but my best bet would be that its a mix of both. When it comes to how I've been, unfortunately not too good. Have gotten into some major trouble at home so things are pretty bad. Since you're not on facebook, Let me know if you're on watsapp. Would be easier to communicate that way and I could send you my number in your facebook page inbox.

  50. You look amazing in this look, dear Azu ! I love your skirt and heels, so pretty and you do have killer legs, already told you that ! I can tell you your scars or bruises can't really be noticed, all I see is a pair of wonderful legs !!! I tend to fall and bruise myself pretty often so I can relate to that very much, moreover my skin is pretty pale and I don't always like how my legs turn out in pics, but since I don't use Photoshop I'll just let my readers see me how I am in real life. You're a stunner ! Many kisses

  55. Hello dear,
    you are such a doll again!!! Love your skirt and shoes and of course your super cute bag.

    I would like to ask you for a favor. As part of my dissertation I prepared a questionnaire for shopping clothes online. It would be great if you had five minutes to answer it.
    Thank you very much
