You can’t even see them in these pictures, but I donned a pair of fake lashes with this getup. I seem to have inherited only one Asian feature: straight (and short) eyelashes. I’ve had more than one makeup artist make a vain effort to curl them, and instead give me a set of falsies. I wish I had the patience to wear them on a daily basis, but I rarely bother. Naturally, on the one day that I wear them I forgot to take a picture. Go figure!

I spent the early part of the day working with my internย  and the rest with Peter, Samara and Bobby. I’m kitty-sitting Peter’s cats, Madeline and Mathilde, while he’s in Paris. We did what we do best – watched ridiculous youtube videos, ate a lot of food and made good conversations. I feel like Peter and I are subtle enablers…we seem to always eat onion rings or cupcakes when we’re together. Thanks, Peter!

  1. Why havent you tried Loreal Beauty tubes yet!!??? Let me know if you bought them yet… b/c if not I am getting you them as part of my eternally indebted to you thank you gift

  2. April:

    I bought the mascara! I even got one for my mom. While I think it’s great and I’m fascinated by the tube things…it doesn’t really matter what I use, because my lashes aren’t even visible and can’t be curled. I usually use it, though:)

  3. I WANT that SKIRT!
    I don’t know if they still make it, but I used to buy Ardell permanent lash glue and use their little lash-clusters- ‘sweeties’ I think is what they’re called- just at the corners of my natural lashes, and it would last for about a week. You have to comb them though, and you remove them using another concoction, that smells like nailpolish remover.

  4. did you dye your hair a little darker? if so what kind of color? its hard to find one that makes hair brown and not black…

  5. I love this! And I really like the color of the tights. I seriously need to go to H&M and buy more colored tights. I need them. Oh and the skirt is so lovely!

  6. Cute outfit!

    I am with you on the shirt eyelashes. My mother is Filipino, and I inherited her short lashes too. I have never worn fake ones, I can never get them to stay on! Looks great on you though!

  7. Great use of colours!
    Fake eyelashes are such a performance, I have quite a few different styles of them but it takes me a good half an hour and my errors before I get them right.
