funny face

More JCrew Outlet love today by way of this fantastic bow skirt:

I really hemmed & hawed over buying it, but seeing these pics & considering how sass-tastic I feel in it, IDK why I ever hesitated. I'm also trying to jazz up my pics a little bit, including actually cropping them (!) and trying some new poses. I like the way this next shot turned out, but it kind of looks like I'm fixin' to smell my own pit. Which I've been known to do from time to time, so I guess it's an accurate depiction.

You can't see it as well as I'd hoped in the pics, but I'm attempting a bright-ass lip today. I keep seeing girls in magazines & blogs wearing the most stunning bright red & pink shades that it made me haul out an oldie but goodie last night - NARS Funny Face. It's pretty much the brightest pink that ever lived, and it scares me and intrigues me at the same time. Bright lipstick is such a pain in the ass compared to my normal lip balm that I slap on 52x/day, but it's such an instant "look" if you wear it (and subsequently touch it up every 5 mins. so it doesn't migrate to the edge of your lips or onto your teeth).
