my grandma is the bestest!

There's a few ways in which you can tell if you are situated on the oh so daunting BOTTOM OF THE SOCIAL PYRAMID (ie "Hi friends! Oh wait, I don't have friends!")...
1) If you consider your boogers your BFFS.
2) If you floss your teeth with your toenails.
3) If you stage fake photoshoots like some wannabe big shot

Fortunately, only one of the above signs has been proven true. It's true; floss has become far too inconvenient. Why floss and create waste when you can simply utilize the natural resource that's at your disposal? (I'm only kidding. Half kidding. No, fully kidding.) But, at last, I guess the faux photoshoot is a testament of my lack of friends and - ahem, I'M SO COOL.

Not really sure what the theme was, but something along the lines of "WWLISYW?" (What Would Lexy In Sixty Years Wear?), so I guess it amounts to something along the lines of effortless-old-grandma-meets-cool-new-grandma-meets-explosion-of-colours-here-and-there. In more "fashion-y" terms, it was intended have a dark palette with pops of unexpected colours, coupled with clashing prints and textures. Aw yeah!

Stylist/ Photography - Me (Lexy)
Model/ Make-up - Sibling (Mimi)


Look 1: Playing with polka dots. I bought this skirt intending to chop 'er off, but now my sister has a weird attachment to it and, quite frankly, chopping it up could be concerning. (By "my sister," I may actually be referring to myself...)

Look 2: Beloved dress being worn as it's actually supposed to be worn - a SKIRT. And holy moly are the colours the same. Maybe they were designed by the same designer in the same collection? Maybe. But definitely not.

Look 3: I'm obsessed with this look. She kind of looks like a psychedelic joker, but maybe because she is in real life... (Uh yeah, busted! That IS an invalid point.)

In conclusion, I need friends.*
Hope you enjoyed!

*I really DO have friends. I don't know why I make continuous friend-less jokes. Maybe Seventeen should cover this. "You aren't confident with yourself! This is so normal! You DO have friends and you need a girls night out with lots of Zac Attack Efron! This is actually a secret sign that you love eating too many cheesies and you're an alien..."

Now if only you have your own magazine
I'd most definitely sign up for a lifetime just to see editorial like this every month
and who knows, when you're 60, you can do the exact photoshoot and do something like now and them section!
Now I'm excited...
I love your dark lip! Did you smear it with blueberries or something? That would be so Where The Wild Things Are!

Lexy, you are a genius. There. I've said it. You should be in the public eye right...now. It's unfair. The amount of talent and creativity that you possess at such a young age is unreal. UNREAL! And your sis is KILLIN' it in those photos. Quite a duo, you guys make.

Abi said...

You're too sweet Lexy! This is a nice little photoshoot! Very dramatic and eye-catching. I love the polka dot 'skirt" and the teal trousers.

CDG said...

Oh my, we are THE SAME. As in we both stage faux photoshoots. But at least you have a sister to be narcissistic and don't have to DIY with a self timer and your dog. I envy you for that! Envy!
Haha the psychedelic joker is definitely my favorite. I really wish there were some awesome g-mas on blogger. Oh well, you are going to be one stylish grandma someday.

I love doing fake photoshoots - but since I dont have many clothes I dont really do them much but my sister is always getting me to take pictures of her.

I really love that dark blue beanie, and the scenery (did I misspell?) is awesome. I love bush-centered shoots:D
