I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I have a bit of a thing for accessories. Especially sparkly ones. I think that brooches are a highly underrated piece of jewelry. They’re like earrings for your clothes. Buy them. Wear them. Enjoy them. Trust me, they’re a game-changer.
I pinned a selection of brooches to my extremely versatile denim jacket. That I wear a lot. Maybe too much? But it goes with everything! I think it’s okay.
I also wore my layered tulle skirt from H&M, a thrifted belt, and Alex’s shoes.
There’s nothing in that cup.
This past weekend I saw the musical 9 to 5 based on the movie of the same name. Dolly Parton (a woman whose musical talent is even bigger than her breasts or her hair) wrote 17 new songs for the production. 17 songs! That lady is impressive.
I wore a thrifted sequin top, my favorite GAP skinnies, eBayed clip-on earrings, and fake eyelashes. Note the Dynasty inspired pose.
The shoes were a DSW find. Here’s a close-up of the fake eyelashes:
These specific eyelashes are from MAC, but I’ve also bought some great ones at Forever 21 and the drugstore. I swear by Lash Grip Eyelash Adhesive for attaching them. It dries very clear and stays put. I’ve found it’s best to let the glue get a little tacky on the eyelash strip before you stick it to your lash line. And be very patient. Once the lashes are attached, I like to coat both my real and false lashes with mascara. You know, for added realism.
