I spent a good portion of the day watching Youtube tutorials on cheek sculpting/highlighting with makeup. My hair and face have just felt so plain lately. I think that I am going to give myself some Bosworth hair soon:
Doesn't it just make the most out of an awkward hair length? I'm also going to invest in some sort of blush system. I say "system" because it appears that you really need a dark shadow, highlight shadow, and then actual pigmented blush if you want cheekbones like David Bowie, which I do.
In other news, Charlotte from LSD was kind enough to send me two new rings. They are amazing! They were cast from antique rings, if I recall correctly. She also sent me a very cool spooky necklace (the same one Severine is wearing here) that I can't wait to show you all, too!
I know that I have a tendency to wear shirts as dresses (evidence A, B, C, D, E, F), but this seems excessive, even for me. I really am one pair of tiny biker shorts away from blatant indecent exposure, but I really don't care. I had originally put this outfit on with burgundy shoes, but thought it was too "matchy-matchy". The blue Docs gave this outfit the right amount of WTF-ness.
I have had a lifelong love affair with Dr. Martens. I remember my mother wearing them when I was a child. I think I got my first pair in junior high, then built a nice little collection from there. By the time high school ended, I had acquired black, blue, red, and yellow. Unfortunately, I sold them all when I moved away from my hometown. Imagine my delight to find these blue bad boys on eBay for just $40! They are authentic Docs and everything (we're the Bouncing Souls no one can beat us...), but they have some interesting detailing, including the hardware in place of traditional eyelets and a very interesting painterly finish that almost makes them look metallic.
In homage to the boot that has defined nearly ever Western counter-culture youth movement since the '60s, I put together 10 Polyvore looks for Fall, each featuring a different pair of Docs:
