so many bright lights that cast a shadow
Charlotte Russe, Delia's (from TJ Maxx) cardigan, thrifted belt, thrifted leather bag, and Forever 21 floral mary janes.
I've had these photos in my virtual back pocket since Tuesday. We all know Thanksgiving was this week and life got pretty crazy!
I bought this cardigan after work on Monday to console myself after I fell all the way down the basement stairs while working. It was scary, especially since I was by myself. If you can help it, don't ever fall down a flight of stairs.
I paired this crazy cardigan with a winter-weather dress I haven't worn in ages. It has pockets, which I find pretty awesome. Don't ask my why, I never use pockets (that's what purses bigger than my head are for), I just find their novelty amusing. The belt was the finishing touch. This belt in particular has always puzzled me - I can't figure out if it's purple or blue. When I put it next to blue it looks purple and vice-versa. It's in that beautiful in-between land of colors that can't be named. That's why I love playing with color, it's so subjective. Everyone sees them differently: to you the belt might be a solid purple; to me it's a blue-purple. I'll have to think of a name for it. Until next time, belt...until next time.
On a totally different and frivolous note, I was loving this lipstick over the summer, but not so much now. My pale winter skin now looks too harsh with the super-bright pink. I hate when my skin get so pale. It's just a sign that...WINTER IS COMING (I know you see what I did there).
I hope you had a great holiday!
