For You and I

What's up ladies and gents? I hope wherever you are, you're enjoying this fine Tuesday. I felt great today when I walked outside. It was cool, but not cold. No harsh winds, but just cool enough for me to wear my wool trench. (My top was pretty light, so I was comfortable). 

Hat, Bracelet, Blouse and Harem Pants: Forever 21, Bag: Gifted Shoes: Sam Edelman, Bow Tie: DIY project, Rings: Gifted, Coat: Guess.

I blogged early this morning about how inspired I was by vintage photography from the 60s and 70s. I guess I kind of Incorporated a bit of Bianca Jagger in my look today without even knowing it. When you collect pieces you like and you're so interested in something, it's easy to be influenced by it before you know it!

On my face, I'm wearing IMAN matte eyeshadow (I can't give you guys the exact name because it's pretty old and the bottom is scratched. Sorry! But as you can see it's a really pretty royal purple and very pigmented. I did have to re-apply a few times before it gave me the look I wanted. Probably just because the color is really dark and so is my skin. If you are of a lighter skin tone, you probably won't have to re-apply! It's really good), NYC eyeliner in Jet Black (I wish I'd used my Avon liquid eyeliner, honestly, for a more dramatic look. But I was rushing. Story of our lives, right?), Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express Mascara, and M.A.C. lip glass in 'Spirited'.

What I'm Listening To:

I know someone, somewhere is judging the hell out of me, but I've fallen in love with the 60s. I'm discovering a whole new part of myself that I honestly didn't know was there until I started intently listening to music like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, etc. I did share some current music earlier today, so I think I should get a pass. LOL. Besides, how amazing is Jim Morrison? He's beautiful to look at, even if you don't want to hear is angelic voice.

Love, Ayanna
