If you look at the pics Mel posted yesterday, you might be able to tell that I'm wearing false eyelashes in my "dressed up" pics. Yes, they're a little over the top, but so am I. I'm also wearing body glitter. And platform shoes. Again, over the top - just like me.
See, I LOVE being a girl. Dressing up, wearing makeup, pretty clothes, killer shoes, perfume, jewelry...bring it on! However, in high school, I was clueless about all that stuff. My mom, while a very feminine woman, was a farm girl and didn't have much idea about what to do with a lot of that stuff either. (I eventually taught her about makeup.)
Fortunately, I ended up at a fashion and design college in NYC. I learned a lot - I learned to experiment, to take chances and not care what other people thought, to go out on a limb fashionably speaking. Those years taught me what worked and what didn't. When to push the envelope and when to seal it up neatly.
So yes, I tend to be a little adventurous when it comes to the girly side of life, but false eyelashes never got anyone killed. (That I know of.) Do you take chances when it comes the way you look or do you play it safe? What's the craziest thing you've ever done fashion-wise?
