dressed up like a lady: Blank pallette.

Aug 9, 2008

Blank pallette.



Dress: vintage via the Getup
Shoes: vintage via the Getup
Sunglasses: UO





I have a real soft spot for totally opaque nail polish wiyh no shimmer or glitter or anything. This one from L.A. Girl is cool, but kind of weird. It's not quite white, not quite blue, just kind of....grey. Which is a funny color to make nail polish in.





I also wanted to include a shot where I could talk about my eye makeup, but I just can't get anything on my face to show up in a photograph! But it's just as well because I needed to show you my kitty pendant. It's vintage from (you guessed it) the Getup, People always ask me if it's a picture of my cat, and while it doesn't quite look like either of my furry friends, I imagine this is a portrait of somebody's own kitty, and she probably (a little creepily) wore it every day.

    I did. :)

    I have never been into nail polish (well, I don't even use make-up), but that grey-ish one looks quite fun! At least on your nails. :)

    I envy all the pretty pendants you have. So far I haven't found any in the local flea markets & second-hand stores.

  11. Oh, that is an odd color for nail polish. I like polish with no sparkles or shimmers too. Well, the sparkles and shimmers have their place as well though...
    Your make-up looks perfect!

  24. You always look stunning in red! If you want to take pictures of your eyeshadow I recommend the macro setting on your camera :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You look soooo glamorous! I also love your opaque nails. Somehow they look more edgy than glittery or shimmery polish. The kitty necklace looks great on you, but would definitely be creepy on an cat-obsessed lady :).

  26. OMG, I am seeing red all day today. This must be the sign for me to pick up the red trench.

  29. Completely opaque nail polish is completely awesome! But I don't wear then anymore since my work doesn't allow anything but boring french manicures.

  40. my friend and i came across a locket in the thrift one day that was super cool and shaped like a mini purse... and inside were two photographs on someone's bunny rabbit! we imagined a little old lady wearing it and regaling helpless strangers with rambling tales about her bunny whilst showing them the photos she always carried around her neck!
    we were supposed to have joint custody over said necklace but alas, she moved to NYC and was sneaky enough to blind me with the sadness of her move that i forgot that locket til now!
    so happy i found your blog! i'm gonna add you to my blogroll if that's cool.
