Once again, and like always, welcome to another post here at CQThreeSixty. This time around I’m showing off an accessory that withstands the test of a Miranda Priestly tirade, which means you can rock it all year long in spite of any fashionista’s SOP. As for me, I like to pair it with clothes that scream above Mariah Carey at the end of “Emotions”; in this case a pair of madras. Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention the best part about this gem. It’s completely free of charge, and not one is identical to the other. So the feeling of exclusivity is just as awesome as possessing one of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets.
If you haven’t figured it out already, I’m talking about the black eye on my face. It’s a thing of beauty. This trendy accessory has been a Hollywood A-list secret for decades. Rockstars, actors, athletes and numerous other face-lift recovering celebrities have put themselves in harms way just to pair a black eye with one of their most outrageous articles of clothing. Tina Turner had Ike so to wear her mini dresses, Michael Jackson had plastic surgery to so pull off his Captain E.O sport jackets, and I have basketball and a pair of J.Crew madras pants.
So in short, if there comes a time that your face looks like the hunchback of Norte Dame…dress it up and let the shiner shine!
Fashion Word-Em-Up: Sometimes comfort doesn’t matter, soak them in Epsom salts or chill it with a T-bone steak, just take comfort in the fact that you look better than everyone else.
