fuzzy collar and sleek hair

Christmas shopping the final frontier happened today. I am thrilled to say that I am done, done, done!

I was torn between feeling fabulous and feeling ridiculous today in this fur collar. I've admired it on other people and having been wanting to try it myself. I like it. This dress is an old target that I've worn quite a bit over the past few years. I've been over it lately until I saw a woman wearing it yesterday and decided to pull it out again. It's a pretty dress but can easily go wrong. The color can look drab and the cut borders on juvenille. I brightened it up with this marigold cardigan. I am not happy with the tights but didn't have any other clean options. I ended up turning down the cuff on the boots after I left the house.

Also, new haircut. I am still not liking it. I was quite happy with my shaggy, fuzzy, over grown haircut I had. I liked that it didn't look fussy and I liked my too long, fall in my eyes bangs. But it has been 9 months since my last haircut and I figured a trin was in order. i should have been more specific about what i wanted. i feel like I have a whole new hairstyle :( Granted I have gotten a ton of compliments on it over the past two days. I'm just not a fan. I do have a tendancy to hide behind frumpiness. Sometimes frumpy clothing, sometimes my glasses, sometimes scraggly hair. And now my hairdresser has dragged me kicking and screaming into this polished stylish (supposedly) haircut. I'll probably thank him one day. But as of now I am still lamenting the loss of my messy mop of hair.

  1. I know what you mean about the fur trend. I LOVE the way it looks on others, but I'm not too sure about how it'll look on me.

    I can tell you that you wear it well :)

    And also, you are anything but frumpy!
