Bright idea

I hate taking photos where I am wearing wide leg pants... they always look insane. My camera is a crappy point-and-shoot and it takes two photos on the timer. I've got like 10 seconds to push the button and run to the stairs. Not enough time to straighten up my pants legs. Oh well, I assure you they look normal IRL.
Necklaces - made by me
Sweater - GAP
Jeans - Built by Wendy
Sandals - thrifted Nine West

I dislike purple. I don't know why. But it didn't stop me from buying purple lipstick apparently. I made these necklaces out of clothesline, and either handspun yarn (spun by someone else... I'm not that crafty... yet) or embroidery floss. I made about a million of them last summer but I've given a lot away as gifts.
The lipstick is Cover Girl Lip Perfection in "Divine"... why are lipstick names the dumbest things ever? Next to maybe nailpolish names... one time I flat out refused to buy a lipstick I liked because the name was "Diva" and that word irks me like no other. Geez, I'm surly today, I guess. So far I have complained about wide leg pants, the color purple, and my disdain for the word "diva"... I better end this post before I alienate more people by being a hater. I also hate puppies (ok, not really.)

Purple doesn't hate you - that lip color is gorgeous!

I am not a purple fan either, but I like the lips... and those fab jeans.

You have alienated me by not hating puppies.

I like the lipstick on you, and I agree that lipstick names are totally ridiculous. "Divine" makes me think of John Waters movies.

love the jeans! and i think that lipstick is named for the fabulous drag queens that wear it! do you hate me because we call our daughter diva? in all fairness, her name is eva, and we're big on rhymes!

Love the necklaces! The jeans look fine to me. I always hope my wide-leg pics come out looking as good as yours. I agree with Sal, purple agrees with you! The lip color is great.

Being positive all the time sucks - sometimes it's you gotta rant about stuff. Makes ya human.

I love redheads in purple. Like, I seriously love it. Those jeans were made for you, too!

i'm a HUGE fan of flares and wide leg pants, and i think you look great in these pants + the lipstick (which i think i have the exact color!). no need to be a hater...it's fabulous!

Yes, wide-leg pants are a bitch to photograph! I always end up standing all wonky-legged to get the right effect, and then I still look like a goober.

Oh, and that purple lippy. GURL. So good.
