Into the blue

Turquoise blue skinny jeans with a royal blue top and blue high heels


I never thought I had a favorite color, but ever since I started using Instagram I’ve noticed that I wear a lot of blue. And I’ve also come to realize that I feel more energized and more positive when I’m wearing bold bright shades of blue.

A few days ago I got dressed in a pair of turquoise blue skinny jeans and an electric blue top and took some pictures in my living room just for the fun of it. My outfit was nothing special. The top is from Amazon and cost me under $10. The jeans are a thrift store purchase. The blue Qupid pumps are from DSW. Everything is old.

I threw on a cheap wig, put on some makeup and some cheap jewelry (bought from Amazon earlier in the year), and I setup my camera on a tripod and used the self-timer to capture some pics of myself posing in my not-so-impressive living room.

I’m not a particularly stylish person. My personal style is pretty basic. It could be because I don’t have a lot of clothes to work with. Or it could be because I don’t have a very active social life. I work from home and rarely go places that require much effort at getting dressed. I’m inclined to think it’s because I don’t have a lot of clothes to work with. Because I do like to get dressed up and have fun pretending at modeling. So if I could afford to fill my closet with more things I definitely would.

Is this an outfit that I’m likely to wear in reality? Minus the high heels (I don’t wear high heels out and about), this is definitely an outfit that I would wear. I’m pretty sure it’s an outfit that I’ve worn in the last couple of months (without the jewelry since I hate having jewelry on for any extended length of time)

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
