The Year in Bindis, Makeup & Flowers (Oh My!) 2015

SAPPHRE-eyes_Fotor

Hello, fellow darklings!  Welcome to my second year in review post.  This post focuses on all of the bindis, “tribal” markings, and flowers that I wore this year, inspired by each month’s birthstones and birth flowers.  Just like my Year in Costume post, there’s a lot of pictures and very few words.

Here is the rundown on how each birthstone and birth flower influenced my outfits and makeup.  You can click on each birthstone and birth flower to view that particular post.

And there we have it, my final post for 2015.  There’s a possibility that the focus of this blog will change (for the better, I hope).  Tomorrow begins a new year and I’m ready.  I hope each and every one of you lovelies has a safe and fun New Year’s.

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise

  1. I loved following the birthstone/flower posts this year, they have been a highlight of my reading 🙂

    The focus of the blog might be changing? I hope that we’ll still have the inspiring outfit photos!

    Have a great 2016! I wish you lots of dance success, plenty of time to experiment with clothes, and maybe a little bit of the decluttering in there too 😉

    1. Thank you L, and Happy 2016 to you too! The focus of the blog will still be fashion-related, but I also plan on including some posts on healthy food & drink. Since I’ll be streamlining my wardrobe, they’ll be a lot of repeats (or “staples”) but the OOTD won’t be going away anytime soon. 🙂

  2. Hoping the January lacey cardigan and black rose flower hairband are two of the things you will keep in your project 666 O_O they are so complimenting your hairstyle & color! <3

    1. Thank you and I am DEFINITELY keeping the lace cardigan and black rose headband. The lace cardigans I’ve put away for when it gets warm. 🙂
