White Out

It's officially summer for me and with summer comes the rise in maxi skirts, neon, denim cut-offs, and, of course, the LWD (little white dress).

The LWD trend is a relatively recent phenomenon that can go one of two ways; either you run the risk of looking like a ghost and or hippie in a peasant shirt, or you run the risk of looking absolutely fabulous. As someone with incredibly fair skin, I'm talking FAIR here, people, I've been paying very close attention to how best to attempt this trend without blending into the equally pale fabric. I've discovered that the best way to pull this off is to actually not wear a LWD, but rather a LWO (a new acronym I'm trying out, that will definitely not take off, but that stands for Little White Outfit). Instead of a plain white dress, layer a bunch of white pieces together. This allows for a combination of shapes and textures that a typical LWD simply can't have.

The Beginning

I don't really know how to start things, it's always been an issue of mine. I can sit in front of a canvas for an hour, knowing full well what I want to paint on it, but never figuring out how or where to begin. I suppose with this blog I should start with some more information about me? (don't ask me how long it took for me to decide to start there, it was too long)
