black and white and re(a)d all over




Two things: One, yes, you're right. This Alexander Wang-esque braid isn't courtesy of my own hair. I just didn't have the heart to cut the cheapo extension that I had so I rocked the unbelievably long hair with pride today. Two, yep, I copied Ms. Liz over at Late Afternoon. I just loved her take on a Parisian stroll outfit that I had to try it out for myself.

And three, I'm starved. Happy Wednesday!

Shirt: Black and white striped dress worn as shirt, H&M
Skirt: Vintage pleated red skirt
Shoes: Black wedge heels, Aldo

  15. Thanks guys for all the lovely comments! It makes this Thursday more bearable! @Kyla: The necklace is from Forever 21 and is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made there. Super cheap but adds a lot of punch to any outfit with the dripping effect. @Linda: The extension is from a local beauty supply shop, Sally's. It was probably around $4, definitely fake hair, but if put in right, most people can't tell the difference. At least, guys can't. My boyfriend still doesn't know. Shhhh...
