Hello, fellow bohos! It’s Friday the 13th again, for the second month in a row – another day to be dark and beautiful. I took a personal day off today, so this ensemble is what I wore to work yesterday. I’m so happy that the weather’s slowly getting warmer!
Here’s my outfit and I (finally!) got to wear something long. This is an outfit that I’ll wear a lot, because it’s long, witchy, and floaty. I’m still in the process of getting rid of some clothes (future post on that, coming soon), but these 2 pieces I’m keeping:
Here’s yesterday’s makeup. I’ve been experimenting with my eye makeup, by using just black and a neutral, beige eye shadow. Instead of applying the black eye shadow on my entire eyelids, I applied it on the outer half:
I like the final result of the “half-shadow” look. Next time, I’ll try this look using colored eye shadow. I’ll also apply more black shadow above the eye crease. I did apply the black shadow on my eye crease, but you can only see it when my eyes are closed (see my half-face above). But, my makeup skills are improving. Practice makes perfect.
Hello, all! I turned 42 this year and my dearest friend, Matt, bought me a ticket to DC Fashion Week. I had no idea that DC had a fashion week! DC Fashion Week has been going on for 22 seasons (11 years) with shows every February and September. My birthday was on Tuesday, February 17, but who wants to hang out on a Tuesday night? We had cold, crappy weather anyway, so we decided to celebrate on Friday.
We’ll start with my outfit, which was nothing impressive. A long, flowing skirt would of been perfect! But it was bitterly cold and there was still ice and snow on the ground, so my outfit was more utilitarian than fashionable:
Here’s my makeup. I decided to get new frames for my birthday. They look kind of crazy, but I like things that look crazy. I also bought a couple of amethyst-purple, sparkly barrettes, but I don’t think I pulled them off very well. They’re not right for my hair and I think they’re a bit “young” for me. I’ll probably make them into something else or save them for a belly dance costume. These would look better as accent pieces to my floral hair clips:
Here are a few more pics from our lovely evening:
Here’s a video I made at the fashion show. I’m still getting the hang of making videos, but I’m slowly improving. I hope you enjoy the video.
