So I’ve been pretty miserable lately. We moved to a new office and though it is beautiful and classy, I just don’t do well with spatial change. Other weird things are stewing in my brain but I don’t want to get into specifics.

I came to work today pretty bummed then my glorious wonder munchkin of a mother put this on her Facebook wall. So that made me feel a little better because baby monkeys always make me feel a little better.

Then I realized that I was still pretty bummed so I began to bury my feelings under work. As I started this very article, not knowing exactly who was going to be outfit of the week, because I’m professional, EMILY just rolls up to the office wearing a flippin’ RAINBOW T-shirt like she is on the high school pep squad for weird girls.

Thus, all my sadness was lifted and everything was fine. (Just kidding, I’m still depressed because it’s a disease that is so hard to cure it is now a bajillion dollar industry.) Emily is wearing "a Joe Fresh fake leather skirt, ASOS rainbow T-shirt, hue tights, and Durango white boots that I wear too much."

What really cheered me up was looking at all of your amazing comments on Outfit of the Week. I feel honored that you all spend time taking photos of your outfits for this column. I wish I could pick you all and write an encyclopedia about all of your outfits, but I have a million other xoJane-related things to do every day. I do want to thank you for all of your pictures this week; they made me really happy.

This week's commenter outfit of the week is Ashlie, because she is a little crafty adorable witch.

First, I want to tell you about a dark gothy lip balm I am freaking out about because it is perfection. It is the REVLON ColorBurst Matte Balm in Shameless and you all have to go buy it.

You know when you put a dark balm on your lips and it just is like a tint? Not here! This stuff goes on DARK and makes your lips look the exact same color as the tube. When does that EVER happen? It is also very moisturising which is great for waning winter months when everything starts to crumble and nobody will want to kiss you ever and you will die alone.


In honor of our witchy commenter I found some pretty rad skull things that I want to share with you:

Like what you see? GO FORTH AND CONSUME. Also, get that lipstick and report back in the comments so I can make sure I'm not going crazy or anything. As usual, I wanna see YOU.
