Still playing with the new ‘do – I chopped my own straight bangs this weekend (I asked my stylist for sideswept but changed my mind Sunday morning), and today I tried it wavy – Added a bit of Jonathan SilkyDirt while wet, dried the bangs straight, let the rest air dry, then hit a few of the Kip Winger-esque pieces with the curling iron. A bit too poofy for my taste -hair needs to be longer to deal with this exact style.  Think if I used a larger barrel curling iron and hit the whole head it would have been more my speed.

    I did feel like a bee… I tried turquoise and orange belts and both didn’t detract from the bumble feeling. The leopard did seem to balance it out!

    I’ve been looking for a way to wear black and yellow without feeling like a bee and I think a bit of leopard is the answer! Off to pin it so I don’t forget!

    See, I like the bangs! They’re a nice change up for you.
    The textures in this really bring out the yellow of the skirt — ruffles of the top, the animal print of the belt. Very nice.

    I learned to pull the bangs to the center, then twist them before cutting – that keeps them from being too straight, and a bit longer on the edges. Though there are still some issues in there…

    Oh the bangs delima. Mine are too long to be straight across, but I miss that look. Sometimes. You did a good job, everytime I try to cut mine myself, they end up puffy or crooked. Anyway, I love this whole look. The ruffle tank adds a nice twist on a plain black top.

    Very very chic outfit.

    I LOVE that skirt. Yellow is such a cheerful color for the fall/winter months. 

    For the hair, I love the big, dramatic curls look, but my hair is rather short (just below chin length) and cannot be wrapped around the larger curling iron barrel. I asked my stylist, and she suggested using the smaller curling iron, but taking a wider section of hair to wrap around the barrel. Does that make sense? I’ve tried it a couple of times and it’s really worked for me!

    Love the blog! I’m a long time reader/lurker 🙂
