Okay….so I wouldn’t exactly wear this to UP on a normal school day but I figured that going to school early in the morning on a weekend for a performance should still count as part of my “University Diaries” so here’s what I looked like after a 10AM show for DUP’s The Country Wife.
Believe me when I say that sometimes I go for function “other” (and not rather) than fashion— this muscle crop top is what I usually wear when working out at home and since the staff and actors usually do warm ups for weekend morning shows to help us loosen up right before the performance, it’d be the easiest to move in this besides I needed to wear something that I could easily take off without messing up my curls. The pencil skirt serves as a “half slip” under my petticoat and the bag is just a perfect size for my script and other knick knacks like my make up, make up brushes, sachets of Kopiko 3-in-1 coffee and makeup wipes to name a few.
The turban I use not only as a hairpiece but also as a cosmetic headband to keep my hair away from my face while putting on my make up. Sad to say I am not wearing these specs for fashion sake, they’re real and I need them badly especially when I’m applying my make up backstage or reviewing my script right before “open house”.
The sneaker wedges—-for the additional inches, what’s new? Haha.
So there it is…a theater actor’s “very functional” take on Geek Chic. Enjoy!
