Makeup Monday: Purple Hair+Hunger Games

You know how much I love my hair stylist, Emily.She just rocks so hard. :)
Well, last week I was overdue for a trim and color. At this point, I trust her so much that I don't feel the need to bring photos or anything unless we are doing a huge change. Her judgement is good enough for me. 

So, I sat down in the chair and we started discussing what we would do with my hair. In have been lusting after brightly colored hair for a while, especially after my trip to NY in September, where I saw girls with pink and pastel hair everywhere. 
I mentioned in passing that I wish I could have purple hair, and Emily kind of looked at me and said "Well, why not...?"
We hopped in the car and went to the beauty supply, and picked up the dye. AND NOW I HAVE PURPLE HAIR!

Wardrobe Wednesday: WIW for Valentine's Day

Here's what I wore on Valentine's Day. We had such a lovely time, going out to eat and getting drinks after. Then. Ya know. Love time.
I love Valentine's Day. It's my favorite, along with Halloween. So much love and red and pink and hearts. :) I don't think it's a "couple" holiday. It's about LOVE. Everyone has some love in their life - if not, there's something wrong. ;) I hope you had a lovely Love Day.
I wanted to look naughty+nice, and vintage-inspired. here's what we (my bff and I via text) came up with:

Makeup Monday: Musings


I was thinking today about how your makeup can really tie together a whole outfit. I decided to muse on the effect of red nail polish on a couple ensemble:
dressy couple - red accents

Isn't it funny how choosing a single cosmetic element can lead to a whole visual creation? I did this board for my friend Kayla {you may recognize her from this and this}. She's putting together some ideas for her clients to use as they prepare for photoshoots.Although, with her talent, they could pretty much wear a paper sack and look good. ;)

What do you do to anchor your look? Or are you more of a free-wheeling person?

Wardrobe Wednesday: Interview Outfits

I hope your week is going well. I am a bit sad - my Boo was supposed to come home last night from Alaska ( he works 2 weeks-on/2 weeks-off, but it's sort of flexible), and they decided yesterday morning that they needed him to stay longer, so he won't be home for another week. :( However, he is the sweetest man, and after he called to tell me he had to cancel his flight home, I got a knock on the door. I opened it, and a woman handed me these:

He sent me flowers. I almost cried. 

I promised on Monday to show you what I wore for some job interview last week. Here ya go:
