I'm very natural, but I can get all dressed up for the occassion. But I'm most comfortable in jeans w/ a t and tennies or shorts/tshirt and flip flops

Great pic. I love the rockabilly style too but unfortunately it doesn't fit me as well.

You're ridiculously beautiful. I love your hair. If the rockabilly style actually fit my personality, I'd do it, but alas, it does not...
I still admire it though.

Classic with an edge.
As in classic/timeless with a dash of rockstar/glam. Definitely not preppy classic.

At least that's the inspiration

Today my look is peeved.

$165 bucks at the hairdressers and when she said brown with "warm" tones, what she really should have said is sorta brown with an underlying red/carrot color.

A great look for some people, I am not one of them.

**sigh** I can't believe I worked so hard at growing out my blonde highlights just so I could look like I stepped out of the Scottish Highlands. It's gonna be weeks before this fades enough for me to colour it myself. WHICH is what I should have done in the first place.

meh, you live and learn.

Work...business casual.....
Weekends depending what we're doing....
I can and do get away with the biker look.
I can and do get away with the craft show middle aged grandma look lol

You'll never ever find me worrying about looking like something on a magazine cover.
I don't care about what's in "style"

Makeup rare on the weekends and light during the week.

I am very tall and skinny so I look like a palm, I wear alot of jeans and Tshirt , I also like to wear dresses to look feminine sometimes . short curly brown hair , white skin but I am using the make up to be brunette . I have a simple look in general.

I tend towards a Rockabilly flavor when I get "dressed up". I prefer vintage cuts and styles.

Every day though? I've been told I look like the girl on that show Criminal Minds (Penelope Garcia I believe).. I have a blonde (dyed) inverted bob that is growing out, glasses with semi-retro looking black frames, fairly pale skin, green eyes. My "look" is lazy. I'm 5'8", overweight but hourglass curvy (thankful for that!).. I tend to wear tanks and capris and birkenstocks. In cooler weather it is usually the flat front khaki or chino type pants (though more often dark than light) with scoop neck thin sweaters or knit pullovers in darker colors or jewel tones.

I was a 'punk rock girl' in my youth and a lot of that still carries over into my current look, just not so obnoxiously as in my past. For a while there I was having fun with keeping my hair pink, purple, blue, but got bored with it.

Oh, and I only wear makeup when I go out.
