Oh wow, this whole outfit post thing is hard!
The fact that I have a crappy camera isn't helping.
For the life of me I can't figure out how to change
the Automatic White Balance, so nothing purple comes out purple
(and I think you can all appreciate what trauma that is for me...)
But even harder is looking at pictures of myself
and my clothing choices. "Is this pretty enough to post?"
"Is this representative of my style?" "Why do I look so weird..?"
But I said I would give the outfit post a go, so here goes:
Below are a couple of my more romantic looks, with cute dresses
and short knitted cardigans. (I wear black cotton tights with everything).
The next look is clearly more 60's inspired. This dress was
actually a weird poofy thing when I bought it on sale a while ago,
but I took it in and now it's one of my dressier dresses.
I'm not a big fan of gold (I actually sold most of my gold jewelry
6 months ago) but I like the vintage look and the heft of brass jewelry.
This is my grandmother's Lapponia necklace from the late 1960's
and one of my mom's old bracelets that she gave to me.
Some of you have already heard about my hair dyeing débâcle
a week ago. I bought a purple hair dye 'Mystic Violet' (above)
- but it was nowhere near purple! My hair turned out a 90's
mahogany red :( To fix it, the on-line shop sent me the blueish black
'Cosmic Blue' free of charge, but the final result is just black.
I don't really mind it, but I really did want PURPLE hair.
