The Fault in our Stars by John Green is definitely my favorite book of all time. I loved it the first time I saw it and every time I re-read it, I honestly still weep over that chapter where ~toot toot~ died. (Yes, of course, I understand that not all of you have read it so I am not spoiling you in this post. Lol.) This book has definitely touched my heart is such a deep level and I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love it and its characters. This is why when there was an opportunity for me to wear something like my favorite book character – Hazel Grace Lancaster, in this case – I just couldn’t miss it for the world.
It was when our professor in a major subject tackling about communication theories who told us that if we were going to dress as our favorite communication tradition on the day of our final exam, we would be given incentives. And incentives meant a lot for that very difficult yet still an enlightening and interesting subject for me. If you have this blog post of mine, I have explained that my favorite communication tradition was semiotics because it gives emphasis to the fact that every one of us sees the world in our eyes, which means that we all see the world differently.
Now, remember the shirt Hazel Grace wore when she was about to meet her favorite author, Peter van Houten? The shirt statement was “This is not a pipe” or “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” in French. This was originally a painting by Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte which basically means that the pipe is not a pipe because it was only a picture/painting/representation of the pipe. It is not actually a pipe that is an object. Interesting, right? I kind of explained that in this ootd post where I segued about semiotics and hyperreality.
I had customized my crop top just for the said final exam requirement and just so I could wear it like Hazel. In this OOTD, I gave it a twist simply by wearing a skort (skirt+short) and my favorite Daniel Wellington watch.
Sometimes though, we have to let things go so I will probably sell this top on my Carousell account. Carousell is a buy-and-sell application and website where you can register for free to sell different items, new or used, or buy things at a lower price. I am selling there my preloved clothes so I would totally appreciate it if you could check it out. Here’s the link to my profile!
