On Friday night, Joy and I got all dressed up to go out with friends to a karaoke bar in Austin.
I decided to wear black and silver (this outfit), but made up my eyes in turquoise (the Mermaid Collection "Temptress" and "Croma" combination in this Concrete Minerals review), and painted my nails sparkly turquoise, so at the last minute, I realized I needed a turquoise hairpiece to pull it all together.
I pulled out a bag of colored feathers and a glue gun (and some felt and a hairclip)...
And: viola! A feathered fascinator!
Because there's nothing like a last minute accessory to pull it all together. (Also known as: I need the pressure of an imminent deadline to get anything accomplished.)
Gotta love those plastic dinosaurs on the bathtub behind me. 'Cause that's classy.
And false eyelashes. It's all about the false eyelashes.

Joy refused to sing, which was sad, but we had a super fun time together, and I was so glad that she had an opportunity to get to know my friends a little. She said after "I really like your friends, and I can see why you want to stay here forever."
Good times! For more pictures of our night, click through to our Flickr set here.
