Yesterday was Friday (it's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday!) and I therefore decided to do something more fun than the black liner, lipstick, go! I'd been doing for work as of late. It's beeeeeeen ssooooooooo hot these past few days I'm lucky my makeup didn't just melt off the second I walked out the door. This look is an everyday...wearable? take on geisha makeup. Ever since I was a child I've had a fascination with Japanese culture, just everything! The food, the fashion, literature, music, traditions-- the list goes on. And fittingly, my darling mother and I went out for sushi this night, haha.
Totes starring in Memoirs of Shannon right now :P
Closeup on my eye. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the Chanel necklace I'm wearing is, in reality, a belt that my friend Lucas, when he worked at the Chanel boutique at Nordstrom, had artfully displayed as a necklace a couple of years ago. It was on sale and so I got it and looooove it. Throughout the day people were trying to figure out what it spelled, haha.
H&M Glasses, obsessed with the retro-feel and the fact that they were six dollars
IN SPEAKING OF Chanel necklaces!! Today I went to Nordstrom with my mom after dim sum and got some new polishes (like I needed them) this Chanel polish is from the new Fall 2011 Collection and I am loving the green-gold-teal reflection. It's constantly changing color on me and is distractingly pretty. A great, super unique color. They also have some new cream eyeshadows that were lovely colors, but I'll have to wait to see if I want to shell out $36...
Royal Navy and Primrose Hill Picnic
As I'm writing this post, I have been listening to a bunch of my Japanese music I haven't listened to in a while. Back in the day I practically wore out some of my Utada Hikaru cds. On another note, I've also been obsessing over the actor Ron Perlman, so after I finish watching "The Boys From Brazil" (a fab movie about Mengle and Nazi Hunters and plans to clone Hitler. The book was written by Ira Levin, look him up too, he's a wonderful author) I'm Netflixing a couple movies with him for certain. For a reference point, Perlman was in that corny, albeit addicting show from the 80's, "Beauty and the Beast," where he had that lion face, bwhaha....I will not admit I started watching it....oh, and he was in Hellboy and does a ton of voiceovers. I'm in love with his voice. Looks like my other love, Jeremy Irons has competition. Wow, this was a long...random...post. I most have a lot on my mind, eeek!
