For those who wonder about the meaning of my site’s URL, here is the post which can help you understand the blogger behind Impressions of a Princess. Let’s scratch that itch on your curious mind, shall we? To start, my address is gongjumonica.com and it is a no-brainer that “monica” is a person’s name. Shockingly, that’s me. For “gongju”, no it was not from a toddler’s language nor my dog’s. Actually, it is a Korean word for princess.
I am in my early twenties, but with a mind like a five-year-old – imagining myself a princess taken away from her royal country. My Korean ex who spoiled me to no end gave me a special name: 공주 (gongju). It literally means princess though the word also refers to a spoiled girl who seems too focused on herself. He assured me that it wasn’t the latter. Convinced, I was happy to be treated like a gongju and really felt like one.
Until now, I fancy myself as a modern princess. Just a few days ago, I even had an outfit post of me wearing a feminine, princess-like dress from one of my favorite shops. It seems redundant for a princess to like pink (think of Barbie princesses) and thankfully my favorite color is blue. Still, there’s something dainty and ladylike in pink dresses, don’t you think?
I love floor-length gowns. I just do. I especially like the feel of the fabric as it brushed my feet/shoes when I walk [supposedly glide] on ballrooms and what have you.
As a person with a slim and stick-like body, I sometimes love to show off my figure (or the lack thereof) with a long dress with a V neckline. It gives off a confident aura which I rarely have. 🙂
I love Greek mythology and I always envy Diane Kruger for playing Helen of Troy. All those drapes make me feel like a goddess.
My favorite style ever is a one-shoulder dress. I think I have featured photos of me wearing one in a post about my cousin’s wedding last year. I received positive feedback with the dress and many commented about my shoulder blades. Oh yeah!
Aren’t you feeling a bit princess-like today? I wish I could attend more diplomatic balls and have men line up for my dance card!
