    Comments You Get When You Dress Vintage

    Many of my favorite pieces are vintage. To me, it's more than finding a one-of-a-kind piece that is beautiful, high quality, and has proved it will stand the test of time. It's also kind of rebellious, anti-capitalist, and anti-fast fashion. The world is FULL of stuff that is already wonderful...

    Beauty secrets of famous ladies

    It is the very rare bird who can shave off eyebrows and make it work. Frankly, I doubt this worked for these actresses in person. And I've never gotten the "Joan Crawfod as a Beauty" idea. I mean she's hardly woof woof material but seems rather plain and ordinary to me. My Project

    Rollers in public

    I jog/work out in the evenings, 3 times a week tops. I just pineapple my hair or put it in a very loose bun while exercising. If my hair gets sweaty I rinse my scalp/roots with water and/or conditioner and rub to remove the sweat without disrupting the style too much.

    Best beauty decision you've made?

    Laser removing! I did it about 5 years ago and am currently looking for a new place to do a few touch up sessions-- so worth it! Wearing less makeup is something that I have become way more comfortable with in the last year—and my skin is very happy about the decision, too!
