Fashion Over Reason: Snake Charmer

Snake Charmer

I always tell people that I've never met an animal print that I didn't like (same goes for sequins, but I'll save that story for another time) and probably the only thing that could ever make me abide by a more is more motto. Seriously. This snake print shift was irresistible, having both a vintage and rock'n roll vibe, but still telegraphing glamour in some way. How's that for a twist?

Wearing this on a Friday night, i decided to just go with it and cake on the face goo. I don't ever wear this much make up, my routine rarely deviating from BB cream or tinted moisturizer, under eye concealer, blush & mascara -- but putting on this slithery dress, I was overcome with an inexplicable desire to go big instead of going home. And truth be told, I was a little bit excited to use some of my favorite products, which all happen to be YSL (they make seriously great cosmetics): the Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara, the Forbidden Burgundy lips and the Effet Faux Cils cream eyeliner.

I think this made me totally Friday-night-ready. And then i had one scotch too many #oops.

I think snake print may be the only print I've yet to wear. Always thought it was reserved for the older, but I have clearly been proved wrong!! Great outfit, FLAWLESS makeup. And I love the more is more motto - I think I need to shake up my outfits more.
