Everything I am wearing is thrifted, except for the watch ring which is from Wal-Mart. I really am in love with this outfit entirely because of the sweater and the dress that I got at the Value Village half off sale last month. The sweater is an amazing shade of blue and has some hardcore embroidery at the front. I had always seen the sweater at Value Village, but no one had ever bought it. It was a little on the expensive side (like 14 dollars), and I was super surprised to find it still hanging on the rack at the sale. The sweater is actually longer than shown, but I just pined it up with some safety pins to make it into a crop top. And it goes so well with the Op Art patterned dress. I had been looking for some kind of Op Art pattern on a dress for the longest time and was thrilled to find it. I didn't even try the dress on in the store because whether it fit or not, I needed this dress! (*cough* I'm a shopaholic *cough*)
Lately I have been trying to incorporate different ways to decorate my face with these stickers I bought from Dollarama last week. The way I decorated my face in these pictures was kind of a mix between the headpiece in this post, and the rhinestone stickers in this post. Screw makeup, all you need is stickers!
Photo creds to my little sister who helped me with taking the photos! It would have taken me hours more of getting off the dryer to turn the camera timer on for the shot and then running back on time to the dryer before the timer on the camera ran out!(confusing process?.... I think yes)
I have been working on a pastel self portrait for the past two weeks, and I am finally finished! The deadline was last Friday but I made sure to snap in a few shots before I handed it in. I didn't realize I took the shots at an angle though so the portrait looks a little distorted, but ill try to get better shots of it at school. I really enjoyed working on this project. One of the hardest things for some people to do is self portraits, because people have a mind set of what the look like when they look in the mirror, and it is hard to draw in those imperfections. It is way easier to draw other people because you see the features in their face and draw them accordingly instead of stylizing their features into something they are not. I had never worked with pastel before and I found it to be surprisingly easy in the end. It was kind of like working with crayons, and I was pretty happy with the end result.
