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).
