sunset






Good news, folks! The days are getting longer! These photos were taken at roughly 5:45 ish, as the sun was setting. Dare I say it, but I think spring may just be around the corner...

(That said, let's hope I didn't just jinx us, huh?)

On a side note, I MUST get my bangs trimmed. Pronto. Any suggestions for great hairdressers in the Bay Area? I'm starting to feel like a shaggy dog. And not a cute shaggy dog.

Blazer: Power shoulder blazer, 80s Purple
Dress: Vintage floral tiered skirt worn as dress
Boots: Black over the knee boots, TopShop

  12. I absolutely loooove this outfit. The skirt-as-dress just looks like a frilly dress. So edgy with the Topshop boots! And my bangs are so long now, they just look like long layers. :P

  15. I have been eyeing up your boots since you got them, and I think you've finally convinced me to pull the plug... now that we are all lusting after spring, I plan to buy an OTK boot. le sigh.

  16. Love it. Where in the Bay are you living? My best friend (as well as my stylist), Hilary, is AMAZING and works at ArtBeat in Berkeley. Well priced and all, but there are a bunch of wonderful salons in the city if you are on that side of the bay. Cinta's great, pricey, but awesome.

  26. I go to Trista at Salon Vivo in San Carlos (on the peninsula, just south of San Mateo), but if you don't have a car and/or aren't staying on the peninsula, that can be a bit of a pain to get to.

    She is cheap though, and cuts my bangs (which are like yours).

  27. obsessed with this look, you look SO gorgeous in that skirt...in college (seeing i went out every day like a lush) my girlfriend and i experimented w the whole "this could be a dress" notion... some outfits were awesome and others were...lets just say...not so awesome.

  41. OK, So I have been eyeing those boots on topshop and I thought you would be the perfect person to ask... Do the shoes fit true to size or did you order a size bigger or smaller?
