I’m not really sure where the ladies over at Dramas With a Side of Kimchi got all of their ideas for these 14 days of fangirling but they’re a whole lot of fun to write about, mostly because they’re giving me a chance to talk about things I wouldn’t normally mention. Things like fashion and travel and back hugs and the many dangers of the bias wrecker… Oh wait. I think I may already have that last one covered…
Day 11’s fangirling is all about drama styling and the fashions we’d most like to add to our personal wardrobe. I have to admit, this one kind of makes me stop and think for a bit. As much as I like the many fashions displayed in dramas, I’m not sure how many I could actually pull off. I really love the over-sized baby-doll dresses and tops that a lot of the drama heroines wear, especially those whose characters are supposed to be more meek and modest. I love how they can be paired with pretty much anything, from jeans to shorts, t-shirts to cardigans, and still look good. I think both the outfits and the girls wearing them are absolutely adorable and the ensemble as a whole does a fantastic job of making drama heroines look tiny, innocent and cute but I just don’t think the same would be said if I attempted the same look. Being taller than a lot of male actors/idols, I’m not exactly one who would come across as little and adorable. I’d probably just end up looking like a giant wearing a circus tent and well, that’s just not a look I really wanna sport.
As for drama fashions I could and have actually adopted into my wardrobe, snugly sweaters, coats with fur-trimmed hoods and brightly colored scarves, hats and mittens are all at the top of that list. Living here in the frozen north, warm clothes are an absolute necessity and thanks to dramas, I’ve come to realize that winter fashion can be just as cute and fun as any other season. I have an ever-growing collection of hats, scarves and sweaters, all of which I love. If I had my way, I’d wear nothing but over-sized sweaters, skinny jeans and a cute pair of boots for the rest of my life. Or at least until it got too hot to wear them; then I’d switch the sweaters out for band t-shirts and the boots for Converse. Because, yes, that is pretty much the extent of my wardrobe. What can I say? Fashion has never really been my forte.
Day 12 asks the burning question: Back hugs, awkward or awesome?
When it comes to dramas and back hugs, it all depends on the situation for me. If a guy just comes up out of nowhere and give a girl a back hug, without any mutual attraction/affection between them, then I think that’s pretty awkward. However, there are times when the girl is just pretending to be bothered by said back hug and really, we all know she’s secretly enjoying it, and I tend to see those are somewhere in-between awkward and awesome. They’re at least tolerable. But then there are the back hugs that come from genuine affection, sometimes done by the guy and other times done by the girl, and in those moments, when the stars all align just right and the whole world seems to be in perfect harmony… Those back hugs are nothing short of awesome. So I guess, if I had to choose between awkward or awesome, I’d say that I lean more towards the awesome side of things. I know not every drama back hug is wonderful but over-all, when I think of them, I get all sorts of warm-fuzzies and that makes me think they’re pretty awesome.
But what about you? What do you think of the ever-popular drama back hug? Are you a fan? Or not so much? And what about drama fashion? Have you come across any styles you’d like to add to your personal wardrobe? Let me know in the comments below!
