The last of my Virgo looks from last week or so:
I am officially OBSESSING over snakeskin--and between the shoes (obv), the metallic sweater (that resembles a reflective reptile), and the patent leather bag (look of the slippery surpent)--i'm a full on snake charmer--in a very jcrew kind of way. um. eh? shh.

I told you I like putting things on my head.

On a fine Virgo evening, some weeks ago, I joined a Libra and fellow Pisces to a shin dig at The LAB ART gallery, a home for high end street art on La Brea http://www.labartgallery.com/. While we were there for the opening of "FIXED: A Bicycle & Canvas Exhibition", I could help but geek over a 3 word Artist 'DESIRE.OBTAIN.CHERISH.'(yes, that's his name--how "LA", right? or Pluto. )http://www.desireobtaincherish.com/ Such simple words, but so direct with immense impact. It's almost as if this street artist's mantra has been following me around the greater los angeles hood for a minute now, only to now catch him in his very habitat: I couldn't help but focus in on some of his pieces.
On another, more Amish note, I was rocking the most coveted look in Lancaster County: covered head to toe--bulky knit camel colored semi-crop sweater, a white maxi skirt, and suede slouchy desert boots. How might this be meticulously Virgo, you might ask? Ah, good question: Modesty + Simplicity + A Neutral Palette. This all accompanied by a fairly bare face and well behaved hair make up some pretty serious Virgo qualities--not everyyything needs to be straight lines, virgo!
This seemingly doubty ensemble is actually a testament to NOT having to dress like a prostitute in order to get holla'd at. This look was (for some god-forsaken reason) a winner with the gents. I swear i'm not delusional. I know this isn't my best game face, i'm well aware, perhaps boys can just smell newly single--even under all that knit.

Oh, Also--

I should mention that I thoroughly enjoy putting funny things on my head with the most seemingly serious intent.

There's more where that came from.

Another 'Also', Am I only person who thinks the word "hat" is funny?? As in, "hey, nice hat"--when clearly what's on the person's head is NOT a hat, but rather a basket or perhaps a bad haircut...
rolling solo on that one?
that's fine.

This isn't a musical

Virgo.Your mental state is sharper than usual today, so make the most of it! You can reason through things more quickly than usual, and that could mean that you're ahead of the pack by the end of the day.

clean + simple + pseudo geometric + modern-esque

What more can a virgo ask for than an oversized clutch that looks like a macbook, an old man's coat, and ivory suede shoes, which only a virgo wouldn't get absolutely filthy? nothing, i say, nothing.

It truly is lovely to live as a Virgo for a bit. You should try it sometime.

Taking a Short Cut: A Virgo Hair Story

Virgos are noted for their impeccable attention to detail, therefore when it comes to their hair, pretty much every strand has a place. it's neat but feminine. I would suggest a shorter cut, at about the shoulders or higher-dare to pixie?. not very much fuss or curls or knots. Just a clean, simple, stylish cut. Straight hair usually works best with this sign, but adding a tame wave works as well-..but don't get carried away. Blunt cuts compliment direct and opinionated virgos, they promote clean lines and a modernly chic mop.
