quintessence

This, I feel, encapsulates the essence of my style.

     

   

I need a haircut. I prefer it a little rounder and bouncier. But I’m loving this magenta hair. I used to use Manic Panic Pillarbox Red, which was gorgeous for a few days and rapidly faded to brittle, mangy orange. Now I use Splat Raspberry, which gives much richer color and actually makes my hair softer.

This dress is strapless with a sweetheart neckline. Usually I’d let it show, but this particular dress suffers from a broken clasp (the reason it was only $27). Without the cardigan, the entire back of my bra would be visible.

Sundress: Old Gold, $27

Cardigan: Bella Boutique, $38 (Far more than I’d usually pay for an accessory item, but it’s a true investment: I wear it with everything.)

Pendant: Battery Street Jeans, $1 (Fucking STEAL!)

Belt: Battery Street Jeans, $2

Hat: Gift

Harley boots (invisible): Hand-me-down from Mom

Tights: Drugstore, $5

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.
