Ena - Day Four
Ena: This morning was brutal. Wait, let me preface that. A concept in the mind is not always the same as a concept in reality…so, this morning was brutal. I made the mistake of actually thinking about today’s outfit prior to trying it on, and let’s just say everything didn’t go quite as planned. Lesson learned.
This was a day that made me want to scream, “bad plan!” and quit this project, but I didn’t. I guess that’s the point; we’re breaking out of our comfort zones and trying new things and that’s not always easy – um, maybe that’s never easy.
It would be much easier for me to get up tomorrow, throw on my old uniform, and head out the door, but I won’t. I’ll suck it up. I’ll keep trying. I’ll deal with it. I’ll go home and not think about what I’m going to wear tomorrow.
Bina - Day Four
Bina: First off, I would like to say that I made it until 6:00pm yesterday with my Big Girl Shoes on.
Okay, so this morning my body woke me up before the alarm again, around 6:45. Today, I was actually more excited to get dressed. I heard the wind shake the cheap windows and I knew to nix the sundress I had been considering. Not going to make that mistake again!
I felt pretty good as I left the house, happy with the ensemble I had been able to pull together and warm enough. As I hit the road on such a gorgeous LA fall day, Phoenix’s “Lizstomania” came on the radio. I cranked it up, rolled down the windows, and enjoyed the lack of traffic thanks to Veterans’ Day.
I arrived at my office before 9am, which is unusual for the perpetually late me. And when I saw Ena, we promptly started giggling at ourselves. But in a good way. We showed off our outfits and accoutrement to each other and I was proud of us, and very proud of Ena for braiding her hair!
We took a morning break to take the pictures. Neither of us was too thrilled with the way they turned out. We realized we have a lot to learn about photography and posing, along with fashion…
