It's a case of deja vu?
Nope, I really did wear this skirt like 2 wks ago (see?)--along with keeping the outfit about 95% the same. Sometimes a girl has no time to be creative.
To make it slightly different this time around, I changed up the top portion from last time, but kept the same color palatte.
This time I paired a lightweight, sheer turtleneck with a slouchy-fit tencel cardi.
My "creativity" comes in with the tying of the cardigan. I felt the front knot not only gave it a much needed fitted shape to my bodice (considering this is a way to balance out the full skirt) and it also lent itself to having a bit of a ballerina inspired look.
(or am I just completely dillusional on that last part?)
Now I understand I lured a lot of you in tonight with yesterday's mention of a new haircut. Sorry to let you down, nothing drastic took place.
It looks the same, just like this outfit, maybe 95% the same. So much so that you probably can't even tell a "new haircut" is at hand, can you?
I'll tell you what I did.
I went in there after work and said, "I want this hairstyle, specifically the piece-y bang, the rest you can leave as it is-just a trim on the split ends please. Oh...and I'll take a few little short layer pieces here and there at eye level."
Now I also have to tell you, these pictures are from yesterday. My stylist does not put any product in my hair, and that's fine--I think we both prefer him to just blowdry it so I don't catch pneumonia and then we'll both be on our merry ways.
I however, on a daily basis, put about 3-5 products in my hair. Therefore, the texture and look of my hair is always much different than what I leave the salon with.
So what you see here is not exactly an accurate depiction of what I have managed to achieve today. You'll see it soon enough, I tend to gunk it up and make it much more piece-y and "edgy" shall I say? My stylist tends to go a more classic route opting for curled under edges, shine, and flat hair. (again this probably goes back to the fact that he never puts any product in it)
I am also not extremely thrilled with it at the moment--ask me again next week. I've come to know my hair quite well-it takes nearly 1 week after the cut to get it to be what I want.
So let's say by next Thursday its going to be what I intended.
Now its just kinda, "eh".
And there you have it...all that hair hoopla I promised, and you only get this!
I'm sure you're already over it.

Ok, now I'm so excited about what I came across today...it makes me smile, it makes me proud, it makes me super giddy--and completely ready for summertime.
SewMeSomeLove (she's come to be like a little sister after all these years of knowing her) is working on putting together a portfolio. I've completely recruited her as my summer intern
and hopefully one day my full-blown assistant!
(lucky girl...hahaha-yes, I'm tooting my own horn. Toot-Toot)
And she's hinted at having a Giveaway on her blog very, very soon. All we have to do is help her reach 20 followers--not too hard, just follower her and before we know it she'll be having her giveaway (oh I'm soooooooo entering! Did you see those beautiful rings--talented I tell you!)
