sofiaviolet: black and white EGL dress from Mary Magdalene (egl)
[personal profile] sofiaviolet posting in [community profile] style_salon
I'm Sofia. 22, undergrad, looking at a future of employment in the basements of academic institutions.

Three things I own that are most "me"

1. My "concert jeans." They're a pair of oddly soft, too-long, dark-rinse jeans with seams down the backs of the legs. I love them and I wear them a lot, especially to concerts.

2. My glasses. I'm on my second pair of purple plastic frames, which are of course absurdly appropriate for someone whose username includes violet. And my glasses have the wonderful effect of balancing my face a bit. I look like a different person without them (and once had to remove them in order to get a professor from before I was wearing them to recognize me).

3. Hello Kitty t-shirts. I have... kind of a lot of them. /o\

I also currently have purple plastic frames for my glasses, though not particularly intentionally - one of the earpieces broke off my last pair of wireframes and the only way I could get replacement frames the same day was to go over to plastic frames for the first time in two decades . . . and the purple ones were the only pair that fit the lens shape I already had. So.

I am beginning to come round to their awesomeness, though.

Oh, no - definitely re: WEARING GLASSES. My most recent pair before this had silver metal frames with teal earpieces. And the most significant pair before that had octagonal silver frames and for most of their lifespan were partially held together by a safety pin. *g* I mostly hadn't gone in for plastic frames in a while because I find the extra bulk in my field of vision to be more distracting than technically optimal. But, as noted, I've been adjusting.

And, yeah, no, definitely no fun. Though the lead-up to my eventually ending up with the pair that the purple frames replaced was my getting a lens kicked out by a crowdsurfer during a TAI set at Warped. Which is totes a better story than 'one of the earpieces broke off during the night'.

Aww, thanks. I've gotta admit I've been pretty fond of them, myself. *g*

BUT, LET ME TELL YOU: that TAI show where I got a lens kicked out? That was first TAI show and I did not expect THEIR crowd to be the one that left me partially glasses-less! Admittedly, partially that's because it was filled with teenies who DON'T KNOW HOW TO CROWDSURF. BUT. STILL. . . . if I could even conceive of sticking things in my eyes like that, I might consider that plan, too.

That? Is entirely too true. I also saw my first Cobras set that same day and the crowd was insane, like 100x more pushy, etc than the TAI teenies had been. Same for the time I saw Cobras at Sonar, in Bmore, when the people I had gone with and I all got to know each other a bit better than we might have been planning on. Just. Craziness. Oi.
