The great debate: Do I bum around on my day off or do I get ready like any other day of the week?
Generally my preference is to look like a hobo. Alas, hobos don’t get much customer service when they’re Christmas shopping. So rather than putting off my blow dry for one more day, I sucked it up and got clean.
But I had anther incentive to look presentable on my day off. I wanted to take a couple pics for Square Piece! There are two stories that I want to tell you about: 1) a story about a very special scarf with the history that leads up to my knitting tattoo and 2) a story about a rare and special necklace that was recently gifted to me. Naturally, we need pictures of both to help the stories along; so it behooves me to not have a hairstyle that’s five days old.
Then I figured, Since I’m having such a good hair day, why don’t I do another lip obsession shoot?
I opted for red lips for a couple of reasons: 1) The new necklace that I wore has some red in it. Coordination, my friends. (And, of course, I wore my red shoes.) And 2) I’m wearing a gray tee. Sometimes the color gray makes me look like I was up all night vomiting. I’d rather look healthy. Bright, red lips counteract the dull gray. (Q: Why wear gray at all? A: ‘Cause the necklace is so extreme, it needed a plain backdrop.)
Natural lips (with vampire-white skin… Hmm… That could be a Crayola color!):

(We’ll get to the necklace soon. One thing at a time.)
