A Thousand Cranes

I'm not sure why but this outfit of mine reminds me of a thousand paper cranes, Japan's culture of Origami folding. 
My colorful graphic top or the flower on my hair I suppose!


So a little background of paper cranes for those who don't have any idea about it. 

In Japanese culture, Cranes are believed to be mystical creatures and are said to live for 1000 years
Imagine that! As such, it was said that anyone folding a thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish.


 These are usually done by a father wishing a thousand years of happiness and prosperity to the couple or for someone who needs to recover from an illness. These cranes are made out of colorful origami papers and are held together with a string.

I actually do know several people who folded paper cranes as a way of proposing to their significant other or as a gift to symbolize how lucky they are to have each other. Some were successful, some were not. But the thought of folding a thousand cranes for someone I must say is really something. After all, you don't find a lot of guys who would do all those effort for a girl these days. So girls, you're lucky if someone did this for you or something similar to this. You must really mean a lot to him :)



For my outfit, I wanted something vibrant and colorful since I'm attending a birthday celebration. 
So I chose a graphic tube top and paired it with an ultra stylish skirt. A white skirt is perfect in neutralizing colorful tones.
