I don’t often wear a short length dress. Women in India dress very conservatively. Even in Mumbai, the most cosmopolitan city in India, you don’t often see women in a dress that is shorter than knee length, let alone shorts. It’s not the only reason why I don’t wear a short dress. I don’t think I look good in it. My short muscular legs have always been my complex. Even when I lose weight, I always lose weight above my waist, but not on my legs.

Growing up in Japan, I was one of the tallest kids in the entire class. I was taller than the tallest boy in the class until I went to the middle school. My height used to make me feel very self-conscious. In Japan, up to the 6th grade in an elementary school, children pay a half of an adult fair to use public transportation. I was in the 6th grade when the bus driver stopped me for paying children’s fair and I had to explain that I was still in an elementary school. I looked too tall for it. Now I wish I grew taller. Funny how your perspective can change in time.

I look at younger girls in 20’s and think how great they look. They look great with any outfit in my opinion. I’m 38, turning 39 soon. As I approach 40, I want to live a life appreciating what I have in every moment and not take it granted. I saw this tie-dye looking AND by Anita Dongre dress and liked it very much. I want to overcome my complex. At some point, I won’t wear short dresses. I don’t want to regret in the future that I didn’t wear what I liked because of my complex.

Life is too short to not enjoy it.

    Kaho, you are truly beautiful inside out. I am also 38 and wish I had been more adventurous, playful in my fashion or make up in my twenties. We should celebrate what we have now and here. Past is past, future is yet to come.

    かほさんのブログを初めて見つけた時思い浮かんだのが、Life is short、一期一会、今を生きる、といった言葉たちでした。
