OOTD 11/1/2013

"The hills are aliiive, with the sound of muuusic!" Just kidding. Today my jam was actually "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair" from South Pacific. Or maybe I should say it's Ani DiFranco, since that's what they're playing in the cafe right now. I do love me some angsty Ani.

Now I wanna talk about cosmetics! I decided to forego eye makeup today, since I wore a ton both yesterday and the day before. (I also like being able to rub my eyes.) Frequent mascara use is taxing to my wimpy lashes. Anyway, I opted for eyebrow pencil + lipstick instead, and I really like how it worked out. I only recently started paying attention to eyebrows, so it still amazes me how much they can shape your face. I especially enjoy the contrast between my light hair and dark brows. And then lipstick is always my favorite--it's my go-to face brightener.

As for the clothes: I've been having a hard time transitioning this dress from warm weather to autumn's chill. The problem is those voluptuous sleeves--they bunch up under cardigans or sweaters. Solution? Put the long sleeves UNDER the dress! I don't know why it only just occurred to me to reverse the order of the layers.

Although I've started getting satisfactory results with the tripod and remote, there's nothing like a good old-fashioned selfie.

  4. I agree with you about eyebrows, it is amazing how they frame a face and just how much they can change a face. Yours look lovely!
