Going Retro

**All images are not owned by me, unless stated.

That's it. My heart is not at peace. And it will stay that way until I'm through with our Final Swimming Practical Exam (which I'm not quite certain when). Why am I so terrified to jump?!

Do you have any idea how fast my heart beats when I'm in this position??? No, you could NEVER imagine. I got so scared to the point I couldn't hear anything else above my fear. All I could hear was a voice telling me "You're gonna die. You're gonna die. You're gonna die. . .", and soooo on. Even though I knew I was surrounded by more than one coach and as if any of my friends would just watch me die there and for God's sake! It's a swimming pool. Not a bottomless ocean! I am such a scaredy-cat. Maybe that's why they call me Ching (abbreviation of  Kucing). Lol. Not funny.

Oh my God. Oh my God. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! I could NEVER see myself doing that! Not in a million years! Not even if I'm provided with a life jacket.

You know, sometimes I wish I could "invent" an alter-ego of me who isn't afraid of anything. Just FEARLESS. And name her Alanna. WTH am I talking about? One thing's for sure, when I have a child of my own, I'd definitely send them for a swimming lesson when they're 8. So that they wouldn't be as "hydrophobic" as I am now =.=

Whoopsie! What's swimming and jumping's got to do with RETRO?? Nothing, at all? EXACTLY. Sorry ter-merapu dan ter-merepek sebentar tadi hahahahahaa.. Well, then, what's up with retro?? Here's the story: Once upon a time, blah blah blah.. blah blah blah.. We (Aquaculture + Marine Science students) have an annual dinner to attend to and the themes are retro, hipsters as well as smart and nerdy.

I think I'm gonna go with Retro. But if I couldn't find any retro outfits, then I'm gonna go with Smart and Nerdy.

Before going shopping for my outfit, I need some inspirations first. So here goes:



I have also promised my friend, Chiibii (she wears hijab) to find a suitable retro outfit for her. Although there was not much I could find, but here's some idea, anyway~ ;) I hope you like it >.<
Just replace skirt to long ones and the shirts to long-sleeves (or just wear a matching inner) and it'll look fine~
The MIDDLE one. Just add a belt and you'll look fab!
I think it'll look better if the shirt has polka dots pattern.

Sorry these were the best I could find. Saya pun masih noob lagi. Fesyen tudung boleh rujuk Hana Tajima, or anyone else. Hehehehe I hope this helps~ ^^

So basically we need to buy the ones with polka dots pattern and/or color-block.

nooo sgt menakutkan itu terjun2. even terjun dari tepi kolam ke kolam pun pelan2. me too not in a million years terjun gitu (bukan takut, sbb xpandai berenang) haha.

retro? then the polka dot cocktail dress should be fine. put a lot of volume to your hair.
