WWD: Fast Times

I know imma day late with my red white and blue, but das how I roll. I decided to do a mash-up of Frenchie French style (the nautical navy and white stripes and skinny pants), and Fast Times At Ridgemont High (the studded pumps - rather than flats - to give it a Benetar-esque edge).

These pants courtesy of me sis are surprisingly comfy for skinny pants. There's juuuust enough stretch in them. I'll just say it again, "WHY, Zara, WHY can't you come to the Midwest? Or at LEAST give me the option to buy your stuff online?????!!!"

Whoa - hey - there are my lips. Or as I originally typed - my lisp. I actually DO wear lipgloss everyday, but since I take my pics in the a.m. before I've eaten breakfast, I don't take the time to put it on, so YOU, you lucky dawgs you, typically get to see my bare, dry lips. 

Today, though, I thought I'd try something different than my usual nudie/pinky gloss, and go with a matte red for extra French/Benetar effect.

I'm surprised how much I like it. I may have to wear this more often. Thought I'd keep my eye makeup pretty minimal, with nude tones and a swipe of liquid liner. Speaking of makeup and schtuff, I came across a tutorial this weekend of someone putting in clipped-in hurr extensions, and I have to say, I'm considering doing something similar. I don't want to end up with a set of bad Britney extensions, but I also don't want to spend a fortune. Has anyone used these? I'm curious to hear about your experience if you did.

Hope ya'll had a kick-ass long weekend. In honor of Fast Times, I leave you with Mike Damone's Five Point Plan, which really, are words to live by:
