April 5, 2019 – Qipao Kapow (OOTD #487)

Guess I’ve already given up on my Seinfeld-themed blog titles.

This will be a short post, as it’s actually a second outfit from a day that I’ve already posted about. If you want to read that post (please do!) go ahead and click here.

As it turns out, school dances don’t end with senior prom in high school. They keep going after you enter university, except people care a whole lot less and you don’t have to spend two months trying to find a dress because you have so many left over from high school that you can just wear one of those again.

You also don’t have to spend two months trying to find a date, or a friend group to take pictures with, or someone with a car who can drive you (who’s not your parents)…like I said, the whole thing is a lot less of a big deal than it was in high school. Plus, you can drink alcohol, which is basically the only thing that can make crawling out of your dorm room in shoes that pinch worth your time.

For this dance, my spring formal with my dorm, I opted to wear this blue Chinese qipao –a dress that you might recognize if you were a follower of my blog way back in 2017 when I first started writing here. It’s what I wore on a dinner cruise during my senior trip to New York City way back in 2017. That was literally just my ninth blog post — and almost exactly two years ago.

Here’s a pic from when I wore this qipao in New York two years ago, and is it just me, or do I basically look the same? I don’t know I was expecting when I compared the photos, but I was hoping to find that I’d become a lot prettier and more mature-looking in two years. I guess not.

I suppose I’m still just waiting on my growth spurt. And my glow-up. And just bscailly when I start looking like an adult woman instead of a twelve year-old boy.

That’s about it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on PinterestInstagramFacebookBloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com.


Dress: Some sketchy Chinese website online like five years ago
