Except. I never thought I could be beautiful unless I looked like my Caucasian peers. Blonde hair and big eyes were my top two wishes. And now, to this day, I get stupid excited when I see a beautiful Asian chica grace the small screen/big screen/magazines and now blogs. This morning as I was checking my Google Reader, I clicked on one of my fave fashion blogs, Style and the City, and was captivated by what I saw:
First, I noticed her terribly chic outfit - j'adore the muted black on black tones mixed with a gorgeous, oversized (and hopefully faux) fur vest and sparkly handbag. After all my initial oohing and ahhing, I then realized that she is: (1) stunning and (2) Asian! Love that. Love that Asian women are now celebrated in the fashion world as being stylish and beautiful. Love that I no longer feel that my small Asian eyes, petite nose, and high cheekbones cannot be beautiful.
C'est tout for moi this Friday. Bon weekend, mes amies!!
