Part two of the series in which I demonstrate how to make having a neck brace look cooler than not having a neck brace. Stick around for more ideas if you're interested in upping your fashion knowledge. Some real winners are coming your way!
This is my mantra lately. As if a neck brace doesn't draw enough attention, a bedazzled neck brace draws in the masses. Little girls love my jewelry, old men scoff me for looking so "gaudy", black guys comment on my "grillz", and the women love my blinged out accessory. It's an attention grabber, for sure.
And although I was pretty self-conscious about it, it's starting to grow on me.....like, I feel like it actually might be attaching itself to my skin. We are together day and night, 24/7, besides those few precious moments of air and freedom when I get to take it off and switch into my waterproof brace when I shower.
Anyway, I figure, If I'm going to draw attention, why not make it awesome?
The fact of the matter is, I am rocking this neck brace, and people know it.
I don't care that I look totally ridiculous. In fact, I love that I do. And that, my friends, is the key to rocking ANYTHING.
To attest to that, I asked my good friend to come over and take some glamour shots for me, 80's style. I ratted my hair. I used the bluest eye shadow I could find. I used so much blush it looks like I got beaten like a red-headed step-child.
For this segment of how to rock a neck brace? My advice to you is to rock it.
Embrace that you look silly and run with it.
Go get glamour shots. It does wonders for your ego.
It was all fun and games until we got the crazy idea to keep dressing up....and putting more makeup on...and surprising our husbands...and making them take us to a public restaurant on a Friday night.
I mean, it just got crazy from there.
Like, really crazy.
And then my neck started hurting, and I had to take my medicine, and things just came unglued.
The only pieces of evidence left from that night are an obscure video of my being completely, un-recreationally high (and I think I must be hilarious when I am high), a bare shred of pride, some left over pizza, and this:
I just....Ya. I don't even know.
Moral of the story:
Have fun with it
Amy Poehler knows her freakin' stuff.
Stick around for more great ideas on how to look cooler than you already do. Coming soon!
