giveawayyyy

a place to bury strangers t-shirt, chris habana necklace, rodarte for opening ceremony leather apron (worn previously here), hansel from basel tights c/o, waaaay old comme des garcons clogs (worn previously here)

It is winter outside now which for the most part means that I MUST wear my preferred silhouette of a long skirt, but sometimes I want to get SASSY and show a little leg. This is accomplished via a warm pair of tights so I don't turn into an icicle when I leave the house. Also I am not sure why my lips look so red in this photo, I wasn't wearing any lipstick as you'll see below...


I have ombre hair now. It makes me feel very fabulous and I love it. However! I have had dark hair for many years and am having a slight identity crisis, mostly because I do not know how to look spooky with this hair color. Like, I need to completely restructure my entire makeup routine! Do I need new blush? New lipstick? Am I still allowed to wear liquid eyeliner? Why am I so hopeless when it comes to makeup?

These tights are Very Comfy and Very Warm and I love them so much.  Do you like them too? Cool, I thought so! You're in luck because Hansel from Basel wants to give you a pair! Entering is SO easy. Just ~~~LIKE~~~ their Facebook page and leave a valid email address in the comments below. United Statesian entrants only, please. I'll choose a winner at random in a week...and I'll even throw in a SURPRISE. Go forth, my cherubic readers, and win yourselves a cute pair of tights!


Edit 12/6/12: Hi everyone, thanks so much for entering! I've chosen a winner and have contacted her.

i love your new hair! you can still be spooky and have lightish hair, i promise. it just takes some getting used to and some extra eyeliner. a spooky lipcolor also helps (i personally like emerald green and grey).

Also, I feel ya'. I get the same way w/my clothes/makeup/glasses, etc. when I change my hair color. I've gone red before and then refused to wear any pink, cause I thought it clashed w/my hair. Now I stick to completely neutral colors, like black or white.

I like the way your whole outfit is this bluish tone with some accidental red - be it the soles of your tights or the unexplicable red lips.

Also man, those tights.. If i don't win the giveaway I'll have to re-arrange my whole shopping list so i get them in time for christmas -___- they are just so rad. my email is heyidiot163@gmail.com
