The Illusionist

A couple of weeks ago, it was my friend's bday (same friend where I went to Bar Copa wearing this), the next night we went to The Room in Hollywood. Rye Bread was feeling lazy (read: OLD) and he said...and I quote "I'm 30, I don't need to go to clubs in Hollywood anymore!" so I flew solo that night. WHOO HOO. Not really...who is going to hold my clutch while I go to the bathroom? I kid!

I bought this skirt a month or two ago & thought, HEY WHY NOT. It was a nice contrast to the short lacy shirt the night before. Having a long torso & short legs, I felt like this high-waisted & floor-length skirt gave the illusion of LONG LEGS & a proportional torso (something I can only DREAM of). The 6" Jessica Simpson Dany platforms didn't hurt either. I might have to start wearing more skirts like this more often...hm.
h&m skirt, pmn tank, js platforms
I also hiked on my own that day and (gross secret alert) did not want to wash my hair afterward, so I pulled it back into 3 braids & a bun. Sometimes, washing, drying, & curling my hair TAKES TOO LONG.I've been meaning to do a tutorial on french braiding my own hair in addition to this one, I just can't figure out if I should do a video or if I should do snapshots like I have in the past. It's tricky when you need both hands to do your hair & you're trying to take your own photos. Maybe it'll be video...I need suggestions!

P.S. How long does my neck look in these photos? lol
