check me out: Painfully Hip in Lucky Magazine. Shazzam.

Thank you, Lucky Magazine! XO!

high-waisted cummerbund shorts – Bows and Arrows Vintage

Funny story:
The sweet, glorious, supportive folks at Lucky had sent me a bottle of Sally Hansen High Def Nail Polish to try and match with an outfit. By deadline’s end, I had not had time to get anyone to take a shot, so I *gasp* cheated. I photoshopped that bright purple madness right onto an appropriately girly, month old photo and sent it in.

Yup! My counterfeit styling made it into a national glossy with Mandy Moore on the cover.
Tee fuckin hee.
