Collaboration with COCRAPARIS

If any of you have ever met me, the first time you met me, you may have picked up that I'm a shy person- I don't speak much.
It's not the fact that I can't speak...I can.
In fact, once you get to know me, I won't stop talking.
It's just one of my insecurities when I first meet people. I always stumble over my words, speak too fast, repeat the same phrase or word too many times in a sentence, my voice is too quiet and I get asked to say what I said; again...and again...and again, I say things that don't make sense, I have a really breath-y laugh, I'm scared of saying the wrong thing. I've had so many moments I wish I had never said something- too many to count, actually.
It's hard to explain, unless you understand what I'm talking about!!!!
I also get anxious over the smallest things - my heart will beat so hard in a class if I don't feel comfortable. And this anxiousness will make me stumble over everything I say. And my cheeks flush bright red. I need everything to be planned out, written out, so I can read it without stumbling and not worrying that the next thing I will say will ruin everything (okay, I might be exaggerating a bit, but no, srsly, life at stake here).
I guess this is why I like blogging right now. It's easier for me to read over what I have read- over and over again as many times as I need.
It probably seems strange to you that I have a YouTube channel - I'm literally showcasing myself for the world to see. But it's different, because I can edit the videos as much as I want, I make myself presentable (Kidding tho, I don't even watch over my video before I post it..oops).
Following this, my style helps me. Yes, that probably is weird...But it makes me more confident. When I wear something that I like, that I believe looks good, I feel confident in myself.
I was a bit nervous wearing this outfit out- I had planned to go to the city wearing this outfit and that would have been fine, but after the siege happened, I'm not allowed to go anytime soon. So I had to make do with wearing this outfit to Westfield. I'll admit, it's a bit titf to wear there... but this shoot had to happen!!
So here we go, you learnt a bit about me and now you can see this outfit I put together to showcase my beautiful COCRA PARIS mesh, fluffy top!! <3

Funny story!! A man drove up, rolled down his window and asked me if I was okay because I was lying on the ground and I was laughing and Sera was laughing and he thought I fell over xD
