Evita Nuh: a Fashionable Juxtapose

When I first stumble upon her blog, I was amazed by how she dresses herself up. 'Quirky' is the first word that came across. I can't believe she was still 10 y.o. (Gosh..what was I wearing when I was her age, we'd better forget) Even the way-too-long-to-be-a-title title of her blogpost got me wondering did she really work on this by herself?

She was still 10 and she wrote a long title like "Life is like a rainbow, you need both the sun and the rain to make it colors appear" or "Four things a woman should know: How to look like a girl, How to act like a lady, How to think like a man, And how to work like a dog" and yes..they were blog titles, not the first sentence of the post.

Then I realize, although her sense of style is already grown ahead her age, she's still a little girl. In that post, just like the nature of a kid, she is cheerful and colorful. She even still has a nanny..she's a little girl who instead of dressing up her Barbie, prefer to dress herself up. That is both scary and impressive.

Discussions about her fashion sense and her age rise here and there. In which she wisely confirm that she's not yet decide anything. She loves fashion and photography now but she still has a long long way to go. A long post about that in "come to my wonderland". This time, she carries an unusual wisdom for a children her age (she's 11 by then). But, contrasting to her writing, she dress herself up as Alice and plays part as a child. Later I realize.. maybe it's not a juxtapose this time. Alice is a representation of a child growing up in her own way. Just like Evita Nuh.

In her photos, we can see that she is growing up and so does her sense of fashion. I remember stumbling upon a child's world of wonder when she played with crazy makeup, making up stories about the weather fairy, combining outfit photo-post with her childish drawing, and more 'serious' play such as dressing up as four ladies and the time when she dress herself up as both a boy and a girl in the same photo.

In terms of her fashion, only in one year she could have a completely different way to respond to things. I noted a way she responded to floral print in 2009 is so different with the way she responded a year later. She can play edgy in a time and at the other time chooses girly dancer-off-duty as her muse. As I recall, she dances a lot in her photos and that brings her back to her inner child. Even when it comes to her life, it's also a wonderland. I mean, learning to fly, holiday in a scenic places, and a dash of unusual-wisdom here and there.

A fashion potential that is already shine brightly contrasting her age as well as her wisdom in her world of wonder. A fashionable juxtapose, I might say.
