Another Cars' quote. Didja catch it?
So, I done won something. Lyramare was doing a giveaway on The Barrel, and (if you haven't caught on already), I WON IT.
I. Won. I.
My prize arrived in a beauteous box wrapped in a slinky black ribbon. It made me think of French things.
The earrings are gorgeous -a perfect blend of distinctiveness and everyday casual. They match everything.
I wore them yesterday with a different necklace - I don't like to go too matchy-matchy with my accessories - and got lots of compliments. Sunshine said they looked like berries, and tried to eat them.
So - when I take pictures of myself, at least the first twenty are throwaways. Does this happen to you?
I always have this weird "look natural, look natural, look natural, look natural" look on my face - usually involving lip curling and squinty eyes - that doesn't look natural at all.
It's not until I start cracking up at myself that I find any good ones.
Thank you Lyramare, for not only providing me with pretty things, but helping me not take myself seriously for at least ten minutes.
