Bad Outfit #6: Old Lady Skirt

I'm really big in to a lot of "old lady stuff," as my mom calls it, but only if I can mix it with things that are a little "edgier" and more "me." I dig doily-lace dresses over spiderweb fishnets, crop pants and slip-on shoes with a studded leather jacket, and of course, long printed skirts with big, butch boots. (Ok, so I like my big, butch boots with just about everything; that's beside the point.) I also decided to try something new with my eyeliner: no wings at the end, and I started it at the center of my eye instead of the inner corner. It certainly "alters" the shape of my eye a bit, but I still prefer my wings. :)

I was in a real hurry to get ready today, so I threw on some simple stuff and took a few quick pictures, hence the meh photo quality and bedhead brows--my apologies. Also, my face and the backs of my shoulders are quite dark versus the rest of me, and I think I'm just going to have to start whitening up my face with something closer to regular skintone, IE Missha Perfect Cover--MAC Face & Body is beautiful, but too sheer to really lighten up my face and make it match. Luckily, the disparity is not all that noticeable to the naked eye.

I also figured I'd show you a picture of my brand new work space. Now that my brother and sister are both back at school and I'm officially living at home, I have all of my stuff upstairs in my bedroom...for the first time in 6 years. After living out of boxes that're haphazardly stacked in the dining room and basement, this is downright surreal!
