So I've been wanting to have more fashion content on my blog, but I feel like a jerk taking pictures of myself and posting them on the Internet (I told this to Debie and she said, "umm, you HAVE seen fashion blogs before, right?"). Also I am definitely not a model. But despite all these obstacles, I'm plunging ahead with an outfit post. I put a lot of thought into this particular outfit, and the barista at the coffee shop complimented me on it, so we'll start here.
I admire women who can wear a million accessories and patterns at once and have it look good (like Song of Style), but I try to only wear one or two crazy fun things at once. What could be more classic than a denim jacket and a little white dress? The crazy part comes in with the sandals.
I wanted to buy these metallic sandals for months and made a special trek to get them when they went on sale. Love them! Pretty comfy and you can get them for a better price now. But if you buy them, whatever you do, do not let your shoes touch each other because the silver can rub off. Oy vey! Learn from my mistakes. The shoe department at the Chevy Chase Bloomingdale's hooked me up with a new pair after mine got scratched within four hours. The new pair is holding up better.
Here's the before picture, where I was rocking 4-inch roots and praying that it looked purposely ombre. Stefeny at Fringe in Georgetown worked wonders. PS - her expert tip is to spray a big of hair spray from far away and then curl the bangs over the cylinder of the can. And yes, I brought in a photo of Zooey Deschanel to illustrate the bangs I wanted #cliche.
I was a little scared about heavy bangs, but as long as I style them it's working out. Anyone out there jumping on the bang-wagon? Hahaha, apologies for that one.
