Makeup, Outfits

I thought you were a life sized paper doll.

I had Andrew Bird stuck in my head all day. Every time I wear a pretty dress like this, I think of my life being set to an Andrew Bird soundtrack.

Outfit Details:
vintage 50s dress – Beacon’s Closet
petticoat – I’ve had this for years and years
tights – target
Seychelles Blimey shoes – courtesy of Seychelles
vintage 50s sweater – gift from my mom

Makeup details:
Mineralize skinfinish natural in light – MAC
brow pencil because I keep forgetting to order a 266se – hate
Petticoat skinfinish – MAC
Film Noir lipstick – courtesy of Julie Hewett (who were kind enough to send me some new products after I blogged about how much I love my new HG, the cheekie lip and cheek shine)
Blacktrack fluidline – MAC

I hope you all understand the lapses in my blogging; I’ve been spending time with family and friends and have stayed away from the internet almost entirely. In fact, I should probably check my gmail before it gets out of control (probably too late). It’s easy to lose track of the internet world when you’re catching up with people you love.

A lot of you have been asking for a hair tutorial and I promise, promise, promise that it will come soon. Also, I’ve had a lot of makeup inquiries, so I’ll do my best to list my makeup more often. If you ever have any questions, it’s easiest for me to respond through twitter or facebook – I don’t always get around to checking older comments on here and I don’t want any questions to go unanswered!

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  1. You are seriously so, SO beautiful! Loving the 50s dress and sweater. I hope your holiday season is as wonderful as it could possibly be – I can't blame you for taking a bit of a break, I've had family over constantly!

  2. That is some fancy petticoat action! I'm rereading Little Women like the little geekbird that I am & your dress reminds me of all the dresses that Meg covets (and Jo teases her for it and then Meg has a burnt curl and goes to the dance in a beautiful borrowed gown and flirts with all the boys!) The blue is beautiful & I think you're right about Andrew bird, all you need is a giant wind-up clock and a complicated mouse trap that sounds like a harp when struck.

  3. gorgeous pics, keiko! thx for the make-up tutorial:) u always have such flawless make-up!:D looking forward to ur hair tutorials, as well:) hope u had a wonderful holiday with ur loved ones:)

  4. your look is seamless; quite breathtaking to say the least.

    every time you post, it's a breath of fresh air. Someone who isn't taking the trends seriously; someone who is blasting Zara & H&M pieces up and down their blog; someone with a clear cut look down to the hair & makeup; someone who has completely captured my fashion heart.


  5. I love love love Andrew Bird! Perfect life soundtrack music for sure!

    PS-I also got my giveaway in the mail yesterday and my sister LOVED the "Protect Love" necklace. Thanks again!

  6. SO SO pretty

    My brother actually introduced me to Andrew Bird two Christmases ago when he gave me his CD. I haven't listened to it in a long time and there's no excuse!
