The past few weeks I’ve been feeling very creative. I have delved deep into my mind to create some amazing art and images. I’ve had some pretty far out there ideas and have found the courage to pursue a surprising amount of them. When I feel especially artistic like this I tend to live in black, all black. It’s mysterious and chic regardless of anything. I felt well put together in this look despite its casual-ness. The hoodie I scored at a mens sporting goods store was love at first sight! It was simple but with enough detail on the pockets to gain many compliments on how “clean” I looked. I went for a dark blue lips, a signature of mine, and what I like to think is my best hairstyle, straight back braids. Dark makeup and braids makes me feel like the cool urban goth I think I wanted to be as a kid, despite a rather cleancut midwestern upbringing. I think we all have an inner look we want to bring out that goes against what others may know about you. But life in general is about finding the courage to be who you are, not what people want you to be, right?
