yes, pretty much. if i wear earth tone color outfits, i would wear warmer color makeup. if i add a bohemian style accessories, then my makeup would be a more richer tone. same goes for cooler tones, but if my accessories are bolder, i might wear shimmery white e/s with a red lipstick. it’s like if i add accessories to my outfit, i might want to add something special to my makeup as well just so my face could catch up with my outfit.

Yes, I don’t have pierced ears, so I go for necklaces and scarves a lot. Headbands and other hair accessories a little bit, too. I like wearing little pops of color, and I see makeup and accessories as different ways to do that.

Wow, it is so rare to find women without pierced ears! My sister is lamenting getting hers pierced, but my mom is pretty set on it (she’s pretty much just scared of pain).

I just got a bunch of scarves, and I’m loving how easy they accessorize an outfit. I expect a few headbands from my boyfriend in my second Christmas gifts, ha.

Do you have a favorite fabric for scarves?

Yeah, strangely, not having pierced ears has become part of my self-identity! I just never have liked earrings. I tried it out once, but didn’t think it looked good and so I let the holes close up. So I guess for your sister, she may end up liking it, but she can always let them heal up again if she changes her mind after she gets them done.

I think plain old cotton is my favorite scarf fabric. And I just realized that “scarf” to me means “knitted winter scarf/muffler” but to others may mean like “Hermes silk scarf.” I am addicted to knitted scarves.

I go through phases where I like jewelry and other times when I don’t. My holes never healed up, I don’t know why. I didn’t wear earrings for like… six years or longer, still there!

Ohh, I assumed knitted scarves 😀

Ha. Yes. 90% of the time its with Alchemy Gothic necklaces. They’re very unique and I get a lot of compliments. There’s a rumor circulating in neighbourhood little girls that I’m a model who dissapears every summer to work in exotic places.
*lol* In reality I leave the city to work on a military base.

aren’t little girls the best when it comes to a boost? I love your story and am often treated with the same sense of awe from the little girls in my sons class 🙂 I admit that I love picking him up after school as they always notice if I have done something different to my hair, have a smashing shade of lipstick on, have on a new outfit…when no one else seems to notice. As far as they are concerned Tekoa, you are a supermodel in their world…you better work it girl!!
