Patience was never one of my virtues. I was born with 'constant pms', where even little things can irk me. Its probably because Im a Taurus.
ITs hard to be this way especially when you don't really mean to be p-m-s-ing. Ive tried to embrace different methods to calm myself. From massages, to watching movies, to arometherapy... but its all temporary, especially when stress comes in. My patience just flies off the window.
Just when I thought all hope was lost I had an AHA moment. Much like what my fave theology teacher in college said about true love. "Love is not a feeling but a decision". It struck me. A decision? not a feeling? hmm? why not decide to be patient? Why not consciously will myself to be patient? SOunds easy right? But its not. To force myself to be patient and repress my constant hot headedness requires a great amount of willpower. Its not like getting immune to a disease. When every problems/issues/stress comes I have to constant keep my patience in check. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. Even if i want to be patient I cant always be perfect. So to avoid losing I remind myself that my actions affect people. Havent you experienced that situation where a waiter at a restaurant or a saleslady was being an asshole/bitch? You end up getting hot headed too and you tend to pass this on to your friends? I hate that ripple/domino effect because it will always find its way back to you. And that sucks. So to avoid that I always push myself to be extra patient.

About the look:
So cool from afar I look like Im burstng in flames. When you look at the prints closely they are actually floral prints and tie dye patterns dancing/swirling in its intense reds.yellows and oranges that resemble flames and molten lava. Speaking of lava, the cape/skirt reminds me of a volcano with a gathered neck opening.
I like the fusion of grunge and bohemian vibe on this look with a dash of Preppy(the clutch).

This look is amazing!!!! I love the orange/red hues!!! It kinda feels like a early autumn look with the warm colours and the splash of checked material!!! But the light fabrics and the bright sunglasses still keep it very right now!!! I love the mix of the florals and tie die together!! You have done it again my dear Andre!!! Just utterly genius!!!!

Hyped!!!!! :):)):)
Andre Judd
thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) appreciate this comment so much Daniella!!!!!!!!!!:)
Zach Herrmann
Your look is stunning! Also I wanted to say, your accessorizing is perfection! The inorganic check of the clutch, in contrast with the unbridled flames of the cape, is aesthetically exhilarating!

I love reading the descriptions under your looks. You are such a deep thinker; I feel that we would be great friends if we ever met. :)
Andre Judd
wow:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks ZACH!!!!!!!!im sure we will be if ever:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mia Mars
i completely agree about the whole domino effect with feelings,kinda experiencing it last few days all the way down.and about the look,i love it,you can't miss!:)
i love how you sparkle and burn with so many different prints like some kind of wiseman/hero from some SF movie!
love you!:))
Andre Judd

Tina Nguyen

Andre Judd
OMG i love that you mentioned Christopher Kane:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! being compared to Celine is a huge compliment. I adore Phoebe Philo. Thank you so much Tina:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exquisite! Your tie-dyed harems look almost cosmic, like star nebulae.

I'm also surprised to learn that you're so "hot-headed"! You seem so well-tempered and composed in all your looks (:
Andre Judd
HI JAMES:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you for liking this look. Yes the harem pants does like nebulae:) love those patterns too:)!!!!!!!!

Hehe were you surprised that Im hot headed?:) yes siree I am:) But good thing Ive mellowed down a bit, ever since I realized i was drawing too much negativity being so hot headed.

oh i forgot to mention in my post that despite me being too 'hot headed' I also feel calm/happy/patient. Its just that my hot headedness levels with my calm side. I want to lessen that percentage by being 80% more calm/patient:) (pheww thats hard work:)!!
During shoots Im at my most happy so I tend to look calmer and more well tempered:)!!!! haha maybe if id do shoots while working you'd totally see me with looking quite upset:)

thanks for reading the post JAmeS:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im glad to receive a feedback from you:)!!!!!!!
James D
Of course I read your posts - I think it's wonderful that you take the time to share your thoughts with everyone. I'm already looking forward to your next look... with *patience* ;)
