Alternative Curves: Black (ok, actually dark purple) lipstick

This month’s Alternative Curves theme is black lipstick, which is something I love. But while putting together an outfit, I realized that I couldn’t find my black lipstick, so I decided to go with dark purple instead. I’ve been meaning to get a good-quality black lipstick anyway, so if I find one within the month, I’ll do another post.

OOTD: Rocking out with my belly out

I may be the last person on the entire internet to do the crop top trend, but I’m ok with that. I’m just happy that I went out in public with my stomach showing, which is a big freaking deal. I never would have done that before I found FA.

I wore this outfit to a concert of two awesome local bands, one that plays klezmer and one that plays Scottish fusion. There’s really more creativity in Boston than I can keep up with, and I’m glad I went to the show even though I kind of wanted to stay home and crash.
