went to the salon (which adam pronounces in the most ridiculous french accent btw) last week to get a routine trim, but ended up cutting off a significant amount of hair. had a classic meltdown at first, but i think that was in part because of how it was styled. we had attempted a blowout, but with the new length it turned into more of a rachel cut from the 90's. in an effort to fix it, i straightened the crap out of it which only made the new length even more shocking. thankfully, i have curled it myself and actually really like the new 'do. it feels a lot lighter and healthier, very refreshing!
with a super limited budget, i've had to improvise my holiday party outfits using the already existing contents of my closet. in order to give my black lace dress a new look, i actually layered a black chiffon skirt over top of the dress and tied it together with a piece of black satin ribbon as a belt. Many people don't think to put a skirt over a dress, but if executed right, it can look super cute! makes me feel like i'm wearing a brand new dress and people are actually really impressed with my layering abilities. or so they tell me to my face... :P
