Fashion Friday: From Anxious Mom to Instant Badass with the Help of Cool Friends.
I'm a rule follower from way back- but, I've always wanted to look like a badass. And nowadays, I find myself skewing nerd about even the slightest potential danger. All the more reason to counteract that by dressing like I don't give a damn.
Thankfully, I've got badass friends with great style. They know all the tricks of the trade without even "knowing" them, you know?
If you're like me and find yourself disaster-thinking your way through the day, let my 4 daring friends help you get a clue.
Here's what they do:
1. Ally wears dark lipstick and takes major nail risks.
Here's me trying out both with a resting bitch face, which I've been working on since high school. Still looks like I got a bad whiff of something.
2. Maureen wears legit high tops.
Ok, I've been doing this one for a while, but I tend to play it safe with the white Converse. Maybe I should try these and pretend I wear them when I'm not at roller-derby.
3. Taaj does big hoops and a middle part.
I've just recently made the move to the middle part, but I need help taming the frizz!
Side note: I feel extra proud of myself for trying this badass earring trend with my unused double pierce from 1998: threader earrings!
4. Megan wears dark eyeliner and a moto jacket.
I found this treasure at a thrift store yesterday and felt like an instant badass.
So, catch me taking ALL the safety precautions but find yourself wondering if I'm a closet daredevil 'cause I'm looking the part, thanks to my friends!
How about YOU, mom? You gonna try this stuff? Fool people into thinking you don't ever use a blinker or switch to airplane mode! Maybe, after a while, that'll start to feel like a possibility. Maybe, after a while, this badass costume will rub off we'll all go wild!
Hope you do something freeing this weekend!
