It’s Snow Problem…

I had so much fun taking these pictures!!! This is what happens when I go in to put makeup on, realize I need to post since it’s Snowy Sunday, and go crazy. I find this look to be part snowflake, part warrior, part David Bowie, and part John Galliano (There was a show where Pat McGrath made the models look like deer… I don’t remember which it was, but it was amazing. Like all her work.)

Anywho, I’m just going to post these pictures now.

Necklace: Forever 21

Earrings, Cameo Pin, and Ring: Sorry, I’m not sure.

Dress: Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse

Shoes: Charlotte Russe

Candy Cane Girl

Do you remember The White Stripes?

I mourn the loss of them often, and nothing reminds me of their glorious music more than a candy cane!

If you didn’t know, White Stripes’ fans were referred to as Candy Cane Children.

They reference this in a few of their songs.

Anyways, being that it’s Whimsical Wednesday I thought that I would take some pictures as the ‘Candy Cane Child’ I am. Even if you don’t like The Whites Stripes, and you probably should, it would be fun to rock candy cane lips for Christmas. Hope you enjoy.

The Playlist:

Candy Cane Children – The White Stripes

Icky Thump – The White Stripes

Yep, just two today. Oh, and also, if you were wondering, the glasses are real.

Snow…

Hi there!

(That’s actually my brother’s shirt. I stole it from him. Just kidding, he gave it to me.)

I wanted this look to be sort of like some down-to-earth fairy, which, I know, sounds like an oxymoron but it worked out okay.

Today’s post is a quick one, but I hope you like the picture and I hope you enjoy the song I’ve chosen.

Today’s song is new to me, I stumbled upon it today, in fact. It’s Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. The song is called ‘Snow,’ and I love the old school feel to it. I’ve been really into the any time period before the 70’s lately. Anyways, I quite like the song, and I apologize in advance that the youtube video I found of it is someone’s personal slideshow. That’s kind of funny, though. I mean, the views on their video might suddenly go up and they’ll have no idea why. Unless they find this post. If they do, then they should know that they picked a great song.

Yellow

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve gotten to do some fun makeup like this… So I hope you like it.

All these pictures were inspired by the song ‘Yellow’ by Coldplay. I heard it at work yesterday, and remembered how much I loved it. It inspired me to create this look.

Cardigan: Forever 21

Shorts: Banana Republic

Tights: Alloy

Shoes: Alice & Olivia for Payless Shoesource

Dinosaur: Grillgum Spikemonicus Noobisaur

Okay, well, here comes the playlist:

The Yellow List

1. Yellow – Coldplay

2. Yellow Sun – The Raconteurs

3. Yellow Submarine – The Beatles

4. Old Yellow Bricks – Arctic Monkeys

5 1/4. Daylight – Matt & Kim

Yep, yep, yep. Have a great day everyone! Sorry this post wasn’t a wealth of information. I promise the next one will be more text based, or something. Anyways, good night and thanks for reading.

Doll Face?

The irony about photographs is that you don’t always know what was happening to the person in them.

For example, if I didn’t tell you, you would never know that I was laughing at the fact that my photographer had just said the last picture was ‘gross.’ I really wasn’t offended, I honestly just found it funny, and this is the result. My point is, pictures are more about what you see in them than what is really going on. So, what do you see in my pictures? I’m curious, because what we see in something says a lot about who we are too. Anyways, sorry to get all philosophical on you, I just didn’t know what to post today so I thought I’d share that story and some thoughts.

Here are the picture details:

Earmuffs: Forever 21

Dress: Zara

Eyeliner: Make Up Forever #92 (The Famous Purple! It’s an eyeshadow, by the way.)

Lips: Combination of MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick (That’s a really annoying name, by the way.), Lancome Le Rouge Absolu in SatinFuschia, MAC True Babe lipglass, and MAC Reflects Very Pink Glitter

Okay, so I’ll leave you with the song that was stuck in my head this morning. I went through perhaps the craziest and longest phase thus far listening to this band’s two CD’s. Literally, I would listen to the CD’s on repeat throughout the day, and this went on for about a month. Hence, even though I’m out of the phase, sometimes I still get a random phrase of one of their songs in my head, and I have to listen to it. That was the case this morning.
