My new haircut is feeling a bit short now that I've had time to settle in, but as I mentioned in a previous post, no one has noticed, so it's clearly all in my head.
I did put on eye make-up though! Not that you can tell, because Asian-hooded-eyelid-problems. But an attempt at a smokey eye was made. Not necessarily successful, but it's the thought that counts.
The faux leather jacket is from River Island (I bought it in their store on Oxford Street in London), and I believe Asos also sells that brand. The necklace is from Plunder, and is much heavier than anything I normally wear. The top is just a basic crepe-de-chine shell in a blush color, by Elizabeth & Clarke. It has a slight sheen to it, though, which makes it work for Type 4. It is so light it almost reads as a nude.
I wish the jacket weren't so large on me. It's not that noticeable in the photo, but the smallest size they had was the equivalent of a US women's size 6, so I'm drowning in pleather. But I liked the style enough that I'm willing to have it taken in/altered. Unfortunately, my former friend who used to do design and pattern-making for Eddie Bauer before becoming a stay-at-home-mom, happens to not be that offended by white supremacy so I can't bring myself to have her alter any of my items (alterations are something she does on the side just for fun and extra cash). But when people post memes that I also see on white supremacist and alt-right blogs, and then agree with them or decide they're not really racist, they get unfriended and blocked. So, thanks to neo-nazi memes, I have to find a new seamstress. And people wonder why I don't bother with facebook anymore. So far, it seems like a really great way to find out that you hate literally every single person you've ever met or are related too.
Not-even-kind-of-veiled-racism aside, here are some more photos of my outfit, from my lovely biracial self. Apparently I'm ruining white purity, but who cares when you look this good, right?!
