A couple weeks before Christmas, I took myself on a date to a Christmas concert. I thought this would be fun – I love Christmas music, and no one judges you for going alone to an event at a church.
So, I got myself all dressed up, curled my hair around my headband (because I was going somewhere more interesting the next day, and needed time for the curls to set), sprayed on my new Dolce & Gabbana big girl perfume, and took myself out on the town.
Only the concert was actually really disappointing – so flat and emotionless. So, then I thought about taking myself out for drinks but figured that was taking all of this a little too far, and decided instead to go put on pajamas and watch the Good Wife. All’s well that ends well.
I did really like this outfit. As we’ve talked about before, the monochromatic look is making a come-back and for some reason I can’t quite identify, I’m all about it. With some red accents (including my beloved almost-ornaments necklace), some red lipstick, and eyeshadow that I included in this picture just because I thought it looked really cool, I was ready to go.
What do you think about the mono-chromatic look? Are you all about the vanilla, or do you miss the neapolitan color blocking of a few years ago? Also, do you think I should always use ice cream metaphors in my writing, because I really like the direction this is heading.
