A Better Perspective
Okay, I'm feeling a little better about my fashion sense, but the reason isn't exactly laudable. I was on my way into Wal-Mart today when a vehicle pulled up in front of the store and the passenger-side door opened. When I saw this lady getting out, I at first thought (and I'm being honest) that she was dressed up for Halloween. Her cheeks had these huge, red (BRIGHT RED) circles on them, just like a clown. The eylids were smeared from lashes to brow with baby blue sparkly eye shadow. She had drawn on eyebrows with very dark eyebrow pencil. But they weren't the skinny little eyebrows you see sometimes. I mean, these things were HUGE. She either had penciled over very bushy eyebrows, or she intentionally drew them to look bushy. Her lipstick was very exaggerated and the same color as her rouge (believe me, this was much more than "blush"). Her foundation was nearly white, or at least very, very light. To top the look off, she had on a wig that was very obviously a wig. I would have laughed, but I realized right away that the lady wasn't joking around. She seriously thought she looked good! It was a major make-up disaster. So, the next time I go to Wal-Mart, I'm definitely wearing my long jeans (heels or no heels), cuffed at the bottom and a striped top. No one would dare say a word!
