Red Prayer Rope Bracelet in the Arcade
I love Video Games. I always have. And today was a perfect day to hit the arcade and revisit my childhood for a while. I have always believed that video games aren’t just for kids, however, I did want to relive my younger days via my outfit. So I looked into my closet to see what I could find.
I found a pair of jeans that were custom ripped by a friend of mine. They gave me the feeling of being a kid again so I structured the rest of my look around the jeans. I added a basic black tank top (something everyone should have in their wardrobe), and then topped it off with a youthful and fun floral lace crop top. The shoes were a no brainer. I wore my Converse Chuck Taylor’s since that was pretty much the only kind of shoes I wore when I was younger. Plus they were comfortable for running around the arcade in.
I have a tendency to go a little nuts with the accessories sometimes but for the purposes of this trip, I kept it simple. Asymmetrical earrings with feathers and leather strips gave the outfit a fun edge. I added a red 33knots prayer bracelet and another set of red beaded bracelets to accent the floral pattern in my shirt. And I put on one of my favorite cuffs. A silver feather cuff that was a gift from a friend. This all worked out rather well since all of it was comfortable, making it appropriate for the atmosphere I was in. It also updated the outfit just enough so I didn’t look like I was ACTUALLY in an outfit from my youth.
So I grabbed some arcade tokens and off I went for some adventure. I played all kinds of games! It was really a freeing experience. I felt even more open and at ease with my youthful side because of my awesome 33knots prayer bracelet. I have to wonder if it helped when I was “battling” evildoers inside the games. I had more fun than I have had in a long time. Sometimes it’s nice to reach back to your roots, let go, and have a little silly fun. And always remember: when you dress good, you feel good; and when you feel good, you shine from the inside out!
