I admit that this is the second or third time in my many years I've been in this fashion to do this. I don't really know why, as it's fun and interesting to see what other people would do. Anywho, I decided to take an interesting turn and go with MY MOM! She knows the fashion, I know she wants to wear the fashion and I'm just trying to get those last little pushes to get her to commit, and I can talk to her for hours while being frustrated with her trying to pick out a pair of socks. (We went through so many and I know I told her there was only 3 pairs of star socks that were applicable and showed her. But would she listen? NO!) XD
|This ended up a pile on the floor of some of the viable options. |
Tidied for my sanity and this photo.

flowers I knew she meant this one. She really liked this
The funniest and frustrating part of this was how I only further proved to myself that I need cute storage units to put my blouses in. They were all neatly folded on the shelf and, after rummaging through them to find the right blouse, they all ended up on the floor. Even with a step stool I'm too short to reach. And then my mom told me to clean my room...I'm not even going to tell you how hard I laughed at her or how many years it's been since I last was told. It was so clean before this video chat...
The next thing was jewelry and headwear. She really wanted to keep to more classic styles and have less jewelry worn, siting the rules of 'less is more,' and chose far less than I would usually wear but thought something could be added to the hat that I didn't think she would pick. She actually loved this hat over the other vintage pieces and we decided that I should add something to draw color in to the coord for balance.
|Just a quick addition.|
Back to the sock. Not only did it have us going back and forth and her hyper-focused on stars socks I only wished I had, we actually found this nice pair of pinstripes that she thought would work perfectly.
The only other things left was doing hair and makeup, which I did myself. She said something akin to what I usually do, or that semi-Gibson Girl look. For the makeup, I feel like I knocked it out of the part and had maybe too much fun making my eyes do this. Getting that even undereye is so worth it but took so long! My mom
