OOTD & LOTD: Leather Vest & Dramatic Green Eyes

20 Aug

Today began as an ordinary day. I watched my siblings, I shuttled my siblings around town to their various activities, and I made sure that my siblings did not die of starvation and/or dehydration.

Then I had a grand idea- dinner with my friend Elizabeth (love her very much). We went to Chipotle and people-watched as we stuffed our faces with tacos (me) and a bowl of rice and other gloop (Bef). Afterward, we walked across the street to a secondhand clothes store and perused the racks halfheartedly, not expecting the find the greatest thing ever.

Suddenly, she held up a hanger, positively glowing with happiness.

“Look, Olive, this is so you.”

And itΒ was.

And it was $4!

My joy in buying my very first leather (“leather”) vest:


I won’t do a tutorial because this post is already mega-long, but I just used a bright green shadow on a white base and cut the crease with a medium brown, then added the same brown underneath the eye and lined and voila! Green cut crease with brown..thingie. I kinda suck at naming looks, if you haven’t noticed :\


Sorry for crappy application, I was in a hurry to photograph before the sun set -.- Lipstick is Wet ‘n Wild Silk Finish in Dark Wine.


This was my first time using the self-timer, and I royally screwed up about 99.9% of my photos. Oh well, perhaps I’ll get better. Do any of you have this issue?


Something about the green made me think Peter Pan, and thus this pose was born.


Angsty teen pose..


This purchase literally made my entire week (no, not literally, but almost). I feel like I could take on the world πŸ˜€ What do you guys think?

    excellent find, if i do say so myself. and i think the word you’re looking for is “pleather”. πŸ˜›

      Hehe thank you, and pleather sounds like a ghetto girl’s skintight leggings. I’d like to differentiate my clothing from that πŸ˜‰
