La Vie En Rouge

2nd October, 2012

The main impetus behind growing out my formerly super-short hair was wanting to have the ability to style it in lots of different ways. And so, I’ve tried teasing the roots and flat-ironing the ends a few times over the past couple weeks. I’m not sure it’s so me ~ we Texas girls do like big hair, and this feels a bit wimpy ~ but what’s the point of living if you’re not trying something new every day, eh? Of course, this time next month it might be my favorite thing in the world ~ who can say. Fashion is funny that way, and I am obsessing over the 90’s right now.|KELLY WEARS| The Row sunnies, Ippolita and Alexa Leigh necklaces, Ann C. dress courtesy of Free People, Lena Erziak bag (seen in better detail HERE), Schutz shoes (recently worn HERE)

    gorgeous dress! love the fit of it!

  • wing and well

    The sunglasses with the hair and the red dress are perfection. And I like the new hair style – it’s a little 60’s on top, and a little grunge at the tips. I do miss your short locks though (short hair solidarity!).

    I love the dress! I’m absolutely obsessed with dropwaist dresses right now. And I’m in the same boat as you having recently grown out my hair for the purpose of being able to try new styles. It’s a nice change from having the same short hair every day!

    What a gorgeous dress! I’m loving its color!
