    Ahhhhhh, I couldn’t stop staring at her brows the whole time I watched the show and wondered how B.M. didn’t stare at them too. I guess he was staring at something else. Ah ha. Loving those sandals!

    How coincidental – the comments left on my blog at 98% nice but a couple of months ago I got a really nasty comment (or two) about my eyebrows being too thin. Then a reader sent me a link to a blog that had an entire post about me and my awful eyebrows. I too am now over the top paranoid about my eyebrows. Ridiculous how one person can have such an impact on us.

    I love these shoes btw. Jimmy Choo has a pair out last summer that were really similar and that I lusted after all summer, finally bought, and then returned in a fit of guilt.

    Love your look. I didn’t and still don’t even notice your eyebrows…it’s kind of random that someone would feel the need to actually bring to your attention how they felt about your eyebrows. Perhaps it was meant as a sincere, “hey I think you’d look good if…” however, it always comes across harsher when we can’t hear tones (and just read it).

    Anyway, I think you look FABULOUS, eyebrows or no eyebrows. =)

    those are some horrible eyebrows

    whaaat?! seriously folks…no i’m not even going to go there…maegan you are frickin drop stinkin dead gaorgeous…if it ain’t broke ya know! and georgie girl not to be snoopin on your comment but seriously if someone took the time to post an entire dedication just to my heinous brows well than i would be speechless and oh so flattered because i must really be something special…

    side note: i need a drop waist dress like i need air…and i love your butterfly one!

    LOVE the dress! I’ve almost purchased those buckle sandals a million times, but wasn’t sure if I could pull them off. Thanks for giving me an idea!

    ok, i am howling at the taya pic! her eyebrows are the worst!!! and you do not need to change a thing. you are beautiful! filled in brows can go horribly awry — as in the ladies that look like they took a magic marker to their faces. oy.

  • GamecockQueen

    May 29, 2009 |

    I’m brunette and I have to fill in my eyebrows too.

    I think you look fabulous! Everyday!

    Taya gives me the willies. Please someone tell me if I ever look that bad. Taya seems like she would come from a trailer park somewhere like Alabama. I loved the show though (esp. when the other contestants made fun of her), I could tear myself away from it 😀

    Adorable dress my dear! Loving the butterflies.
    To your comment…I fill in my brows a little too. It helps give them the shape and fill in a little where needed. Not to the point where you can actually see it. That’s too extreme and people would stare :)-
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    P.S. I forgot to comment about your lovely neighborhood with the palm trees lined. Everytime i look at it, it reminds me of the movie “Troop Beverly Hills” for some reason. It’s gorgeous and i wish i lived on such a street.

    Ok, I want to know who the freak was who left you the eyebrow comment? What a lame-o. Your eyebrows look perfectly fine! Perhaps this person needs to look at themselves…

    I know it wasn’t this big a deal to you…it rubbed me the wrong way.

    Miss you! ; )

    This may be the first time I’ve commented, but I love your blog. What is wrong with someone that they would make a comment about your eye brows? Seriously?

    I like it without the belt, it seems to suit the butterflies!

  • Lauren From Texas

    OK – seriously? I am obsessed with eyebrows and I have never thought anything was wrong with yours. Who is even looking at your eyebrows when you look so fabulous?! I love the all black look again 🙂 And I totally know about the overplucking – mine are super thin now thanks to my Jr. High/High School says when I didn’t know what the crap I was doing. Oh well. That’s why they make powder/pencil. 🙂 Happy Friday!

    i hear ya about getting all those nice comments and the one bad one is the one that sticks with you. it’s annoying how that works.

    anyways, you look fabulous as always!

  • Lila Sweetheart

    Oh honey!! I am glad you are not upset about my comment. I only mentioned it because I have the same problem, mine are blonde and nonexistent, so I do it every day. I dye my hair dark though, so it would look funny if I didn’t. You do look great without it too 🙂 And there is nothing wrong with trying out different things, even if you end up not liking it at all. I really wish I had more friends who told me when I was in need of some fashion help (or otherwise), so I figure I should do the same for others. Love your stuff though and please don’t feel insecure at all, you’re absolutely gorgeous 🙂

    PS to the other commenters- I am the “freak” who left the eyebrow comment. Feel free to skewer me, I can handle it 🙂

    I definately think your eye brows look much better with a little filler! It makes your blue eyes pop even more 🙂

    Well, hell. We’re all self conscious, we’re all jerks, we’re all a victim of road rage, we’re all in this together, right? I think you look fabulous, all the time. Eyebrows, light eyebrows, you look hot. Have you ever been to the Corey Helford Gallery? Tonight their having Coop’s show, It’d be rad if you and your husband could make it. Happy Eyebrow Friday either way woman!!

    did someone really comment about your brows? I am always so focused on your outfit and witty prose that I don’t really have time to study your face. I always think it looks fab anyway. your makeup is flawless! I sometimes color in my own bc for some reason, after years of waxing, tweezing, threading, etc. the ones right in the middle don’t grow in as thick so they need some help but mine are black as night…I don’t think I can tell on you.

    and btw, if I was staring at this chick I don’t think I’d be focusing on her brows either…her girls are ridiculous. she needs much more than just skimpy bathing suit for those puppies! her brows are the least of her problems. lol

    and I heart your outfit. I wish I could pull of the leggings look. I find my legs to be a bit stump-a-rella.

    OMG, her eyebrows were horrid. I couldn’t concentrate during the entire season because they were glaring at me. They looked like sperm. Gross.

    And damn lady, I’ll never know how you manage to bring it to the office everyday and look like a million bucks. Respect.

  • Girl Japan

    What the hell, those brows of T are kinda scary— did her stylist not tell her that?

    Here are my thoughts, a persons eyes should not be drawn to another persons brows– and I never noticed yours before– so I don’t think we should have our BROWS stand out? What are your thoughts?

  • Girl Japan

    P.s. I love the SHINY leggings Maegan..

    hopefully you know enough Spanish to translate that, your eyebrows look fine, I’ve have seems some really weird painted on eyebrows, trust me you do not wanna go there.

    I think thin eyebrows suit you, thin eyebrows only look bad on some people, or if they are the type of thin thats really just a pencil line(yuck)
    I don’t think you would look good with big eyebrows, I don’t look good with big ones either

  • Jill

    I’ve never filled in my eyebrows. I don’t even own an eyebrow pencil! Trust me…most people aren’t looking at your brows!
