TIS THE SEASON
Tried desperately to make today’s outfit work. Switched around 5 skirts. Wasn’t sure about silver or gold jewelry. Ended up with rhinestone?
We’re meeting someone from Maxim today? =/

Cousin’s Christening Outfit Update!

*Gold ring earrings
*Gold Virgin Mary (ha) medallion
*Suede ankle-strap heels
All my cousins are getting hitched and procreating so quickly.
To be fair, they’re all about a decade older than me, so this doesn’t put on any REAL pressure on my biological clock or anything. What I’m more upset about is the fact that I’m driving to Westchester to go to the WORST restaurant on the planet. Everyone there is full Italian (I’m 1/4th, this is my mother’s side) so like, they’re only real job should be to provide good food. However, considering that my cousin Corinne is more like an Italian masquerading as a WASP, the yuppification would explain the mediocre food.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. You know, yuppification. The world needs all types of people. But the food? Unacceptable.
So I’ve been planning this outfit/styling for weeks. The dress was under $30 at like, Burlington Coat factory. Earrings were cheap, too. The medallion I wore because…it’s a religious occasion, and I’m wearing something with a mesh cleavage window, so I thought that classed it up.
The hairstyle, though pictures don’t do it justice, is kind of Shoshanna from GIRLS inspired. It’s a french braid on one side, and a fishtail braid sidebun on the other. The former you can only seen from the back (it’s pinned down, like a sort of design.) All my hairstyles are kind of done by brail.
So this all sounds very silly, but I’m really excited about the whole look. I’m also excited to meet my baby cousin, who’s a little less than 5 months old and VERY tiny/pretty/well-tempered. As far as I can tell from videos.
