Today’s hair is what happened when I start pinning my hair up in bits until I am happy with it. My bangs are finally long enough to pin out of my face! I did feel a little silly with my “fancy” hair and my poofy skirt and red accessories… not that this stopped me from going out thrifting! I stopped by a store that I usually don’t visit because the “vintage” rack there is mostly late ’80s castoffs, and while I sifting through the racks I came across an absolute confection of a 50s party dress in periwinkle tulle with rhinestones and embroidery and a darker lavendar-blue underslip. I’m not sure why I didn’t try it on… something about “I don’t need a floor-length fancy dress” and “I have places to be” and “I don’t want to be tempted” so I left it there. Over the course of the evening, I realized I had a perfect excuse to buy a new fancy dress (if it fit…) in the form of Boyfriend’s upcoming recital, so I scampered back to the shop this morning… and it was gone! I could kick myself. I hope whoever got it thinks it is lovely and amazing and beautiful.
Who knows. It might not have fit anyway.
Don’t mind the toes, I try to avoid posting photos of them (the polish is Sally Hansen Silver Sweep) because I think they’re funny-lookin’. Instead pay attention to the bright red shoes (which I love, but have trouble coming up with excuses to wear) and the bright red bag! This is the purse that inspired yesterday’s manicure, and I built my outfit today around it. I love it, it’s so fun and cheerful! It’s the Vera Bradley Chain Bag, though I’ve detached the chain handle for the moment. I love that all the handles are removable… it’s very versatile.
And, of course, the requisite skirt twirl picture. I love the print on this skirt! It’s really a dress, I have it folded over at the waist, but you’d never know…
