the cousins’ theme for baju raya this year, is blue. at first, it was baby blue. but my sister said that we’d all look like talcum powder containers – which i absolutely agree. so it was changed to shades of blue.
i had originally suggested earth tones. my sister wanted red. she promptly engaged in a negotiation with the cousins and somehow it became blue. somehow.
blue is not my colour. i used to think that it was. but no, blue is not me. a lot of people think that blue is easy to pull off, but it is actually not. that is why you hardly see blue getting goof reviews on the red carpet. unless you are kate winslet. or renee zellweger. or demi moore.
did you see the photos where ashley tisdale and vanessa hudgens do the blue dress battle? hideous. both of them.
lady gaga can pull off blue. but it just might not be appropriate for raya.
J came baju raya shopping with me the other day and it is officially affirmed. some shades of blue are terrible on me. especially the creamy ones. and the bright navy ones. and sick light blue ones. if i found it this hard to find something presentable, i can’t imagine how my more well groomed cousins will find the shopping experience.
