It's like Lacy in retrograde.
Every time I see a pumpkin sitting on a bale of hay I cringe. I want to take a flamethrower to the infinite mum display at the front of every grocery store.
OR AM I?!?!??!?!?
I think the key is that I gotta put some black with it.

Me. Wearing makeup.
I actually have been going against my usual preference of looking as bland as humanly possible and wearing super bright lips. Don't worry, the rest of me is still the Gap version of goth bland so it's kinda like I'm a walking funeral for my butterfly mouth.
For my fellow makeup enthusiasts, I'm ADDICTED addicted to NYX. It's candy for your lips. I love every color and they smell like what cartoons rainbows would probably smell like and you can put that on your face. They don't get sticky or bleed and are super cheap at Ulta and I'm now your candy facerainbow pusher.
But if you like painted canvases instead of painted faces I've also been enjoying all of MFAMB's paintings lately...

One day I'll get around to buying so good art but until then...
PLANTS! My track record with green things is... checkered... we'll say but I feel victim to the bromeliad's flashy center bits. It was just sitting there whoring it up for me and I couldn't resist. Also, it kinda matched my pink and orange shoes so I figure the Universe WANTED me to buy it.
If I kill it let's pretend this never happened.
I was also momentarily seduced (remember, Lacy Sauce in retrograde) by these blossom thingies until a plant smart person (thanks @_emily_rose) told me even dummies can grow zinnias. GUESS WHAT I'LL BE PLANTING NEXT SPRING, Y'ALL?!??!
That's right, lipstick plants.

...hot pink and orange pumpkins?! I don't know how I feel about this but I'm putting this here for you. Because I care about your front porches and seasonal tablescaping.
But I'm still thinking about bright furniture and summer plants so y'all just keep pinning those recipes for pumpkin spice sex lube and I'll be hanging out here...

And tablescaping like this:

Just kidding I can't tablescape. I just throw my mail in artful piles and call it a day. Hhmm... maybe we need to talk about proper 'scaping soon because this dying star is clueless.
Prepare for pink dump...

Yes all things gradient pink and orange please.

Put some black on it. And see the other amazing fashion illustrations by Daryl Feril here.
And if I'm not thinking about rad pank I've been completely consumed with this:

Good thing that bromeliad was so cheap so I can spend some money on posters inspired by tv shows. Am I really that person now?!
Who cares as long as my lipstick looks good.
