seeing yourself

Pants: American Apparel. Top: Thrift. Boots: All Saints
Well this is a first for me.
Thanks Silvia for sending me this illustration (all the way from Italy).
The original post for the outfit is here.
ps. I used to LOVE drawing when growing up and filled endless sketch book pages. I almost want to return back to it again. Have you lot grown out of a hobby you wish you still did now?
pps. I used to act on stage too for years. I really regret not continuing that.

    so jealous of that drawing. i wish someone would do that for me. ha ha. i love the outfit also. well deserved.

    i took piano lessons as a child but quit after starting because i wanted play instead. i still play but all by ear. i wish i had continued so could be play classically.

    we had the same hobbies in our youth lol! my parents forced me to take acting classes and saturday morning painting lessons for years and to this day, my mom says she regrets pulling me out of paint class.

    I use to absolutely love reading when I was younger but I suddenly did not have time for it I see my younger sister doing it and I admire her so much I’m trying to gain my love and allot time for it because I realized how much I missed it.
    *ps the sketch is amazing!

    the illustration is great.The picture even better.I think you should give drawing a try:you won`t lose anything if you give it a chance.And acting seems very interesting and fun to me:)why the hell not?

  21. Tastes Eclectic Fashion says:

    Why not start drawing again?! And acting too? The limit to what you can do is only what you place upon yourself. [=

  22. Kassie says:

    I used to dance and I miss it so much. I’m thinking about starting it up again but returning seems so daunting after so many years.
    The drawing is beautiful!

    art used to be my fave subject. i used to dance; a bit of ballet and chinese folk dance. i also kinda regret i hadn’t taken the interests or passion further. i always daydreamt of being part of a dance troupe that tours the world over.

  24. Silvia says:

    big hugs

  27. caylee says:

    i love the original picture, and it’s so awesome that you now have a sketch of it too!
    and the funny thing is, the hobby i wish i still did is sketching! i too have a sketchbook and it’s filled with drawings of cartoons. so sad that we get to busy to do the things we once loved.
