I often find it difficult to look bright-eyed and cheery in pictures. Many takes are ruined by a strained smile and half-closed eyelids, and it's frustrating... I haven't perfected yet the practised, easy smile that is supposed to make me look more "charming". (It's even worse when people ask you if you're okay when they see your neutral expression, as if it were hinting at some kind of emotional distress.) Back when I took these pictures, I'd given up on posting them because I could not capture a decent smile. But looking at them again, I found them salvageable. My pouty expression sort of goes with the parisian schoolgirl vibe of this outfit, doesn't it?

Now that you know what my resting "bitch" face looks like, let's move on to another topic. Back when I wore this I was watching American Horror Story: The Coven. I didn't like the first two seasons of AHS, I tried to get into them... I guess horror isn't really my thing. But once I heard the third season was going to be about young witches, I knew I had to watch it. It had some of the best fashion, and I liked it even as the story got progressively sillier. It may have displeased a lot of long-time AHS fans, but I thought it was a fun, wild ride. The series made me crave dark lipstick and all things black, so I put together this outfit in the spirit of preppy witches.
Accesorising blouses with diffrent brooches and collar tips is something I should do more often.
