This means that the majority of my wardrobe will finally get to see the light of day.
It was also today; while getting my eyes checked; that I stumbled on a great discovery.
The frames they had were relatively common-- nothing I haven't seen countless times in the past... until the lady at the counter pointed me in the direct of these beautifully authentic looking reproduction Victorian frames. As soon as I put them on all I could think was 'jackpot!'
In a couple weeks I will be sporting my brand new pair of vintage inspired frames. The hubby hates them, believes they make me look crossed-eyed; I on the other hand believe they blast me into the past, where is exactly when I want to be... aesthetically speaking.
On lady Bathezda's blog she has a beautifully done combination of orange and black make up; thinking one day I had to do it. Well I did... somewhat, mostly-kinda-inspired-by... heh. My hand is still a little heavy on the application, but the results were nevertheless satisfactory.
I also tried my hand at a fishtail braid, which didn't end up that different looking than my regular side braid.
Eh, it was worth a shot-- perhaps if my hair had a little more volume to it, it might actually resemble that herringbone pattern.
What I'm wearing:
