Wear what flatters you and wear what you love. Those might not be the same thing. So then you’ve got a choice to make.
You either break up with one, or you say, ok, look, we have to make this work. I love you both, beads and scarf.
I love you both, flat-iron and crimper.
I love a mournful purple shadow and I love a moody purple lip.
If you break up, do it clean. Stuff the loser in a bag and take it to the Salvation Army, or to a drop-box if it’s after-hours. I think there’s one up by the Hilltop HyVee. If you merge, merge hard. Commit. It’s the only way. You think a purple eyelid and a winey lip are going to work together if you’re not feeling them truly and completely? They are not.
Make a decision and wear it with all your heart.
