Bigger is Always Better

Bigger is always better in my book. Whether its paychecks or houses or diamonds or sunglasses I always prefer grandeur. My latest–and largest–obsession: Eyelashes.

I wore these over-the-top lashes to my birthday dinner last Saturday night (that’s right—I kissed sweet sixteen good-bye. She’s so last year.). Besides batting these bad boys at the Chace-Crawford-hot waiter, the most entertaining part of the evening? All the attention my new accessories were receiving…even if some of these stares did shout out, “What a freak!”

Did these stares faze me? I didn’t even bat a lash. I guess some people can’t handle fabulous.

Here’s what I used to create this look:

  • Frankly, if you love them, then go on, rock the falsies! I think you look adorable. You really only are young once, so take advantage of it. :)

    I’m 24, and I love wearing fake lashes(though I usually stick to black ones, I love the retro-glam look) and red lipstick when I go out. Yeah, I might stand out among the indie kids in jeans and tees but I feel fabulous in my frocks and back-seamed stockings and that’s all that counts. Fashion is strongly individual, and as long as you’re not being inappropriate (like sporting a miniskirt at a funeral), then who cares?

    And the early years teacher in me is really resisting the urge to talk about respect and kind words.

  • Also, Katie, I love your self-confidence! It’s something that our culture really seems determine to take away from women, and it’s wonderful to see someone so confident in herself and her style.
