This is the GIRLIEST outfit I have ever worn in my life. I’m almost sure of it. Pink, lace, ruffles, frills, ribbon, makeup, bows……yep–this is DEFINITELY a costume.
It’s also definitely a cute costume.
I figured if I was going to wear 31 costumes in a row, maybe I could sprinkle a few extremely girly ones into the mix. (I do love the ruffle socks look, though. Who knew?!) And besides, the pink ruffle little kid dress is straight out of my closet. And I wear it regularly. And I like it alot. I’ve just never dressed it up with white lace and puffy sleeves, so it LOOKS like a different dress that I wouldn’t like at all. (Ahem, THE POWER OF LAYERING AND ACCESSORIZING!)
Once I watched my makeup artists do a bazillion faces of doll makeup for a fashion/theatrical production I was part of. I figured if I watched them do this a bazillion times in a row, maybe I could figure out how to do doll makeup once on my own? Remember, I’m a makeup rookie, so I pretty much think of makeup as fingerpaint for my face. The dollface wasn’t so hard though. I paled out my lips and face a bit, used lip stain as blush (it totally doesn’t stain your face, which I’m always surprisingly disappointed by), drew on a few bottom lashes and finally made some small puckered lips with lipstick.
AND….bonus! This outfit make me want to dance and twirl around all day long! But, I probably say (or at least think) that about every costume. I might just want to dance and twirl around every day…..? But THIS day I would’ve looked extra cute and girly as I twirled!
