Stray HeartPosted: February 14, 2013
This is another outfit from last week which just happens to fit the Valentine’s Day theme thanks to the addition of the heart brooch. I didn’t even remember it was Valentine’s until I saw roses and chocolate being sold on the curb. Ah, Hanoi, where you can buy everything from a street vendor… Now, my attitude toward romance is a weird mix between hopeless romantic (that comes from watching too many BBC adaptations of Jane Austen and the likes) and cynical, but there’s no ambiguity in my attitude toward Valentine’s Day. To quote Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it’s “a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.” OK, I have to go watch it again now. Come to think of it, it’s kind of a perfect movie for a cynic like me to watch on Valentine’s Day.
