Guys… I found it! A neckerchief that (sort of) doesn’t make me look like a flight attendant! Frankly, I’m shocked and awed. This one was a find in J Crew. I think the key to the neckerchief look is using a scarf actually meant as a dainty neck accessory, rather than a larger, bulkier one. This one is essentially a sheer, very light, and very soft bandana. I paired it with a lower cut sweater to balance out the bedecked neck look, and then some jeans and paddock boots to dress it down. The coat is an amazing jacket my cousin gave me that is the most beautiful shade of greenish blue. I love it to bits.

Huge thanks to the wonderful Jessica for taking these shots, and a happy December to all of you!

dress- c/o Dresswe

Most people only get to wear a prom dress to, well, prom. But I say, what’s the fun in that? Why only wear a prom dress once a year when you could be wearing one in, oh, say, mid November?

All jokes aside, for this post I partnered with Dresswe for a shoot centered around this beautiful red dress. It’s a full ballgown, and when I say full, I mean full. We’re talking five layers of tulle. It’s also totally backless, with sheer panels and the most exquisite lace detailing. I’ve never felt quite so regal as I did wearing it.. I went on a little adventure with some of my friends around my town to get these pictures. The best part of the night was seeing people’s reactions to the dress. It was around thirty degrees out, and I don’t think most of the people in my town had seen a prom dress since their senior year in high school. I got a few odd looks, one group that started talking about bullfighting outfits once they saw me, and a whole lot of smiles. I love seeing people’s reactions to more “out there” fashions, and this was no exception.

Huge thanks to Becky and Amanda for taking the shots, and to Dresswe for sending the dress. Dresswe is a is a China based wedding and special events dressmaking company. Check them out!

I love variety. See my backwards shirts, backwards overalls, backwards shoes… okay, the last one is a joke. But I love variety. So, of course, the next stop was a bathing suit shirt. Naturally. This isn’t the first time I’ve done this, and it certainly won’t be the last!

Romp Around

Just a quick little OOTD of a romper I’ve been wearing a TON lately. As per the usual, here I’m wearing it backwards. What’s new with you?

A Very Fashion-y Halloween

So you’re going to a costume party, but you’re a fashion girl. Or you don’t like costumes. Or you’re just sick of being Cher from Clueless every single year.

I got you.

So for this year, try something a little less black and orange, and a little more spring/summer 2017. Runway makeup is always extraordinary, so why not make your costume Marithé + François Girbaud spring 2010?

 

Erdem Spring/ Summer 2016

This one is easy. Leave your eyebrows as they are, and skip washing your face (all about that glow). Just pop some orange all over your lid, and blend out. Easy!

A Very Fashion-y Halloween

Marc Jacobs Fall/ Winter 2016

Okay, this look is more intense. But very appropriate for halloween! First, you need to cover up your eyebrows. Use a gluestick to slick them down, then let them dry, and repeat until you really can’t move them. Use an obscene amount of foundation and concealer to cover them up. Then, using a fine tipped eyeliner, outline where you’d usually put eyeshadow. One coat of mascara, a swipe of dark lipstick, and you’re done!

Comme des Garcons

This one requires a lip pencil. Trust me, I tried to do without. Cover your lips with some concealer and foundation, then draw a big ol’ pair of lips about an inch off of where they should be.

Marithé + François Girbaud Spring 2010

All you need for this one is a brow pencil, or some eyeliner that could pass as your brow color. Using quick swipes, feather your brows up. Pretend to be Cara Delevingne.

Max Mara Spring 2016

This one is my favorite! Using some tape, block off an extremely irregular pentagon, with your lower lash line as one of the sides. Apply an orangey pink shade directly below the tape, then blend it down.
