Fashion and Happy Things!   Stylish Sundays: Intersections

Top: The Limted, Jeans: Aeropostale, Shoes: Old, don’t know the brand but I bought them from Alloy Necklace: H&M

I wore this early last week, because I was finally feeling a bit better and wanted to be dressed and feel pretty, but I still wanted to be comfortable. This fit the bill perfectly. I don’t think I’ve ever worn this top on the blog before, but it is one of my favorites and I always feel amazing in it. I am still really loving my hair. And upkeep has been insanely easy so I’ll be doing a post on that sometime next week or the week after hopefully. I feel like I’ve been neglecting both my blogs so so so much recently because of how busy I am, and how sick I’ve been. However I’m killing it on Tumblr so if you want to follow me there you can. It’s what I do late at night when I should be sleeping, but just can’t.

Hair: Curled with 2 inch Conair Curling iron, color: Color Ion Brilliance Brights Fuchsia.

On My Face: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Foundation (I’m almost out of my Nars foundations so I’m wearing this to use it up before it needs to be tossed), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush on the apples of my cheeks and The Balm’s Hot Mama from the apples to my temples, with a light brown from Maybelline’s the Nudes Palette as my contour, and The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer to highlight. Eyes are the champagne color from the Marc Jacobs The Lolita Palette, Makeup Forever Eyeliner on my tightline and Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant Mascara because Maxwell has me addicted to it. Lipstick is Nyx Tea Rose with Lancome’s Coral Rush Juicy Tube over it.

I adore this necklace I bought from H&M because I’m a really big fan of intersections and the lower letter T.

I always forget I have these shoes. Which sucks because I love them, despite the fact that they eat my heels. I bought these years ago, before the whole loafer trend started, because the Nancy Drew movie had just come out and I really like Nancy Drew. Really that says how old they are. I’m pretty sure I bought them on sale from Alloy, and I haven’t shopped there in ages.

Mid-Autumn Changes

I love mid-Autumn. It’s the best part of Autumn. The air is crisp, my yard is covered in leaves, and the air hangs heavy with the scent of woodsmoke. You know winter is coming, and with it all the wonderful sentimental Holidays, and snow, but it’s not here yet, and everything feels exciting to me.

This Autumn has been super busy for me, and I’ve neglected this blog a bit. Or well a lot, and I feel guilty about that, but there’s really not much that I can do about it.

Top: Ann Taylor Loft, Cardigan: American Eagle, Jeans: Gap Jeggings, Belt: Maurices, Nails: Zoya Binx

Oh yeah, and I dyed my hair purple. I’ve wanted to do it for a while now, but kept chickening out, but I finally impulse dyed it thanks to someone I follow on twitter posting that she dyed her hair dark purple. I’m absolutely obsessed and trying to decided what color I’m going to do next. I’m thinking either dark purple, teal or dark blue.

I plan to do a full post on how I dyed it, and my experience with the dye soon.  But these pictures are absolutely true to color. For reference now I used Color Ion Brilliance in Fuchsia

Shoes: Old Navy

Since it’s November first I’m going to show you what I wore for Halloween. I originally planned to dress as Taylor Momsen this year, but it was much to cold. So I randomly threw this together, and decided I looked like a practical version of a female comic book super hero. All I needed was a utility belt. I had one person say I looked like Hit Girl (pretty sure it was just the hair) with out all the weapons. I haven’t managed to watch the entire movie yet, because blood bothers me, but I want to.  Fashion and Happy Things!   Mid Autumn Changes

Dress: Maurices, Tights: Hue, Boots: Rebels Taos Moto Boots

That’s actually the bits you can see, I’m actually wearing thermal leggings by American Apparel and another pair of Hue Tights under the black Hue Tights, and a H&M Tee Shirt Dress and a really old v-neck sweater from Forever 21 underneath the dress.

Mask: Halloween Express, Necklace: H&M, Nails: Sally Hansen Glow In The Dark Haunted House Nail Strips

On My Face: Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Hourglass Blush, Maybelline Black Eyeshadow, Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant Mascara, Sonia Kashuk Dalia Lip Crayon, Revlon Shameless Matte Balm Stain, Victoria’s Secret Le Femme Lipgloss

I know my hair looks way lighter here than it does in the above pictures, it’s just the lighting. The top photos were taken on our DSLR, by my husband who’s a photographer, with the white balance perfectly set to get as true to color as we possibly can.  These photos were taken by my Dad on my iPhone before we left to take my son Trick Or Treating because sadly my husband was/is sick. Also I have a ton of dry shampoo in my hair because when you dye your hair a funky color the less you wash it the longer the color lasts.

What were you for Halloween? Have you ever dyed your hair? and finally, What color do you think I should dye my hair next?
