Different Styling

This tunic is what I call a “one-trick pony”, meaning I only have one way of styling it – with a pair of skinny pants or jeans. However, after looking at the lookbook from the boutique where I got the tunic, I saw a number of similar tunics paired with culottes, so I decided to give it a try. To my surprise, I quite like it – it has echoes of the traditional Vietnamese áo dài, which consists of a long tunic worn over a pair of wide-leg pants, but looks more modern. I guess I can call this tunic a two-trick pony now!


Stripey Sense

Summer vacation is ending, so here are the last few casual outfits before school starts again. I wore this to see Spider-Man: Far from Home last week (hence the title, it’s a terrible pun on “Spidey-sense”, see?) Yes, yes, I know, another pair of culottes, but these are so comfy and I just can’t get enough of them.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie, which did a great job of exploring the MCU post-Endgame. However, a friend then pointed out that in both MCU Spider-Man movies, the villains are just normal people whose lives were ruined by the Avengers (or more specifically Iron Man, in the case of Far from Home). It makes them more compelling and it makes sense for the scope of these movies, but it’s kind of messed up that the “little guys” are portrayed as the bad guys. I know the idea of superheroes being accountable for their actions has been touched upon in Civil War, but I still want the MCU to really address it. In Phase 4, maybe?
