Le Professeur’s Monthly Homework Assignment for January was to create a post inspired by ice, frost and/or snow. Several ideas rushed into my head for frosty outfits, but in the end I chose to go with ice. We don’t get a lot of snow or frost in Southern California, but there was once a time when Hollywood loved to sparkle like ice. As you have probably noticed, I love to pay tribute to that era whenever I can.
This whole outfit is built around the fabulous necklace, a Christmas gift from my friend Jennifer. The dangling rhinestone reminded me of icicles. Thank you, Jennifer, for giving me a timely piece of inspiration!
Of course, once I had my heart set on wearing rhinestones, I went all out. I haven’t glued things to my forehead in years, and I found I kinda missed it. 🙂 I even swapped out my usual hoop earrings for something much fancier. My eyeshadow is a shimmery white from Ben Nye’s Lumiere luxe powder collection (plus my usual Ben Nye black pressed shadow in the crease).
The metallic mesh purse is from a random mall store. It was the perfect companion for all of my icy sparkle, and a little frosty in its own right.
