Cliche for Dinner

These are the rest from last night, the actual outfit posts. I've grown to love these high waisted trousers like a brother, thus their consistency on my two legs. The shirt is my mothers. I've raided her closet multiple times and always seem to find a new piece of clothing to add to my own. She doesn't wear half the clothes in her closet, so she gladly hands the pieces I find over to me. I felt very Audrey inspired yesterday, so I did my make-up just as she had it in this photo, simple and sweet. I decided to do the eyebrows as well with an eyebrow pencil practically the shade of my own eyebrows. I've always envied Audrey's eyebrows, and I have to resist the urge to draw them on like that. I went out to a college party last night and I was given looks like you wouldn't believe. Not only for my eyebrows, but my entire outfit. It's funny how self-conscious I used to be until I attained an actual sense of style (not to be narcissistic, but it's true). I used to wear sweaters, jeans, and pink sneakers when I went out on the weekend. I was always interested in fashion but I never took it seriously until last November or so. I just don't think I had the courage to actually take a chance. Sometimes people compliment my sense of style, other people shun it. In the end it's basically what keeps you happy, and I particularly learned that last night. Don't let other people decide who you are. 

There is so much corny in that paragraph it's not even funny.

those pictures and that look is absolutely fantastic - especially the second picture. i actually didnt think audrey, but rather a silent era style; someone like alice joyce.
but really, its a completely inspiring look. i am really loving it.
