Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!

I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Child's Play: Out of Comfort Zone

Floral Jersey Top: Dorothy Perkins
Shorts: H&M
Bag: from England
Peep Toes: Parisian
Bangles: Thrifted
Studs and Necklace: from England

Pictorial inside UP Ikot again. :-)

Honestly, I’m not comfortable baring my skin that’s why I’m not fond of wearing anything that’s skimpy. For me it’s one way of attracting negative vibe from the opposite sex. It also somehow promotes rude stares from others since the legs, which is one of the most eye-catching parts of a lady, is being exposed. I get on the edge when I’m being glared at. That’s quite ironic for someone who has a huge thing about dressing up. Fashion nowadays has become one way of trying to stand out. I love glamming up, but I’m contended at just being a wall flower. Being invisible is fun! I’m weird, throw rocks at me! But of course, our confidence level gets high sometimes, thus the donning of something out of our comfort zone.

I know I still look like a fashion backward old maiden with that outfit, but at least I managed to show a little skin without getting too conscious. I’m proud of myself, because I’m no longer as conservative as before. ’Nuff said. Now, let me share you the short story behind this ensemble. I had a hard time mixing and matching this getup. I was supposed to wear the top with black shorts to match their black details, but I couldn’t find the latter. I didn’t have time to rummage our tiny closet, because I was rushing for school. So to solve the dilemma, I borrowed my Mom’s skin tone tube undergarment to match with the cream pants, brown bag and flats. Voila! I ditched the black and floral style concept that instant.

Well, yes I did get some malicious gazes on the way but I perfectly know how to retaliate, and besides I know how to move in such a way that I won’t come off as someone who tempts. I dress and, of course, act with the way I want others to treat me. I can say with pride and delight that I’m a decent woman who just wants to explore her fashion ideas by sprucing up. In this outfit’s case, balancing is key. Cover up the upper part if you want a revealing bottom and vice versa, but remember not to expose the body that extreme. Looking like a bombshell is different from looking like a stripper! On that note, I just would like to tell you that we can dress out of our comfort zone, but definitely not out of the bounds. Have a good day, folks! And see you soon… Cosmopolites!

I like the floral top, you look really pretty in that whole ensemble. And yep, in as much as I enjoy wearing mini skirts and shorts, I always make sure that I don't go overboard with skin exposure cuz I just despise being leered at. Looking sexy and looking trashy are two very different things.

Cheers,
