Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Love is a Two-Way Street

Prior to the taking of these (again, unedited) photos, I have:
cut my own bangs with a paper scissors,
locked myself out of my apartment like the scatterbrain that I am, and
walked in the cold, cold rain. 
Good to know I can do all of that and still look this good.

This was Sunday, and it was a cold and rainy one, but I'm determined to make use of my right to bare legs (see what I did there?) as much as I can before it snows!!  So I took a strapless summer dress (a thrifted piece originally from Banana Republic) and put a sweater over it to make a more seasonally-appropriate look.

And in other news, this coat is GOOD, right?
It's nice for me to see that I can still use my older clothing items to create a fresh look.  And when I say "older," I'm not talking about a matter of months, here.  The shoes, coat, and sweater I've owned since high school (that was when my obsession with Audrey Hepburn first started, hence the basic black patent pumps, nice lines of the black sweater, and feminine skirted trench).
And as an aside, for any of you who like this kinda stuff, I have a cute little story:
These pumps were a gift from my first boyfriend. who also happens to have put a ring on it.  heehee Yup, that's right!  I'm married to my highschool sweetheart.
Watch This:

The title of this post was taken from the refrain of this song by Kimbra.  I'm obsessed with this artist!  Longer-time readers will recall that my folks gave me her CD, VOWS for my birthday.  I've been obsessed ever since.  And how about her fabulous style in this video??? That pale skin, those red lips, the heavy bangs, the out-of-this-world dress, those shoes...drooooool...

OMG, an unedited, extra-large photo of MY FACE.
