{makeover} monday: a day late.

"Rockabilly." Gosh, I hate that word. Earlier tonight, I didn't think I did. But I have now decided that I do. It just sounds...less than cute. But I suppose it is how I'd best describe this look.
ANYWAYS. I recently decided that I really want to start branching out--trying new styles, new looks. So I decided a fun way to do that would be to each week share one new look with all of you...sort of to hold me accountable. This week originally started out as a "60s Look." But then I didn't have enough bobby pins, so this happened!

First, I did my makeup. And when I was done I was kind of like, "DAAYYYUUM, GIRL." Just kidding. But I did think that I looked quite pretty. Then, I did my hair. And I was like, "Okay, okay." But then I had to go show Josh, and I was actually nervous. This was way more extreme than what I, or anyone else who knows me, would be used to. And I was afraid he'd be all, "Lyds. You're a goof." But it actually went more like this:

Lyds: Dun-dun-da-dun! PRESENTING LYDIA! 
(yes, i am this dramatic.)

Josh: BABY! You look so pretty! Awww, Baby.
(he is nice.)

Stella: ~lots of growling + barking~
(she is scary.)

So, it turned out that it wasn't my imagination...and I really did pull this look off. It's probably not something I would do all the time, just because it's not really something that I would want to use as an everyday kind of look. That...and my dog is afraid of me and has no idea who I am when I look like this. But it's definitely a look that I can see myself going back to every now and again. 

{i know all of the pictures are of my profile...just go with it.}

I couldn't get a decent picture of me from the front, soo. But if you can't tell, I went with the "pompadour" style. It was big. And cute!

{vintage pumps}

As far as my clothes go, you'll have to use your imagination a bit. I forgot to take outfit photos. So...just imagine me in those cute vintage pumps, super dark wash skinny jeans, a navy blue and white striped v-neck, and a black leather jacket. Got it? Don't I look AWESOME? :)

This was fun. I'm excited for next time!


  1. holy freaking cute! your makeup! and hair! AND THOSE SHOES! i think its such a great idea what you are doing. i get sooo bored with the same look every day! i might just have to try something new because of you! :)
