So I cut off my Paul & Joe kimono dress from Target. I have been considering it for a while. I wear it a lot, it's not the highest quality and it's beginning to look a bit worse for wear as a dress. A tad faded, a tad pilled, a tad misshapen. And well, I am feeling stagnant with my wardrobe. So this morning I cut off almost a foot off the dress with a pair of shears. The edge is raw, but I don't think it looks too bad. I also think I have enough length on it if I choose to hem it.
With it I am wearing my Curvy Bootcut jeans from Gap, my teal suede wedges from Seychelles, a gray-blue, silver and gray-green beaded necklace from Target, my silver cuff and new dangly sterling silver earrings that I got at the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale.
Hair is not quite how I want it. I realized I left my Sexy Straight Balm in a hotel on some business trip, hence the reason that my hair has been weird lately. I went to the grocery store last night for produce, and bought a few new goodies. I got SAMY Mucho Volume and sprayed it to freshly washed and conditioned hair, then added some Paul Mitchell Sculpting lotion. I leaned over, read the recent issue of Food and Wine and pulled hair taut while drying, doing some twisting to encourage beachy waves. Yeah, I didn't end up with that. More like a dried, fried mess of stringy strands. So I blew it straight. The product left my hair looking a bit dry and damaged and… thick, like doll hair. I considered adding a bit of BioSilk to smooth, but was afraid it could make the situation worse. Now that I am at work, it looks okay. Think tomorrow I will try the sculpting lotion sans the Mucho Volume.
