Edie and her eyelashes


Did you know that Edie Sedgwick wore two pairs of false eyelashes EVERY DAY? True story! Edie was a fascinating girl, the quintessential New York fashion plate. Her wardrobe consisted of long shirts, black tights and fur coats. Oh, and the oversized chandelier earrings she wore every day. I always wish I could be as daring in my fashion choices as she was! This winter, since the mod, sixties look is back in, I will compensate by using a lot of eyeliner and false eyelashes. If you buy eyelashes from the MAC counter, they will apply them and do your eye makeup for free. If you are applying your own, do not wear mascara, as this will ruin the eyelashes and you won't be able to use them again. For extra oomph, apply mascara to your own eyelashes beforehand.

edie is one of my heroines! when nate and i go to the warhol museum she is everywhere - in polaroids taken by andy, movies constantly running of her looking totally awesome, telephone conversations that you can listen to from actual vintage telephones, and clothing that she wore delicately displayed througout the museum. i wish you could see it crystal - you would fall in love with her all over again!
