Last week the ladies of Carriage Trade told me to come on over and try on their beautiful clothing and jewelry for upcoming posts. I love that store and the best part is I get to wear their beautiful pieces and my husband doesn't freak out because our credit card statement stays reasonable because I don't have to buy anything. But I'm just wondering if there isn't a party or two I could wear this dress too...damn beautiful clothing at Carriage Trade...
Not sure if you noticed but I went back to my roots (literally). I like to go dark in the fall/winter seasons. It's only hair and I can dye it back in a month. I didn't think like this when I was in high school. As a young woman your hair was a big deal! It's still a big deal, we all talk about good hair days and bad hair days. I would never have dyed my hair on a whim or cut off that much length when I was younger. Now I'll take more risk. I won't be sporting a short crop, only because I wore my hair like that in my early twenties and it's not my best look.
There was one Croatian girl I grew up with who had the guts to do whatever she wanted with her hair - her name was Alison and she was fierce. Honestly she would have blond hair my length and then come to kolo practice with black spiky hair. I never knew what she was going to do next and I was always in awe of the fact she just did it. How many high school girls did you know who would do that?
I love that I can play with the ruching of this dress. Just move the folds to cover the areas you want to hide. I know you can't hide too much but that's what body slimmers are for, non?
Who needs a little black dress? Purple will do!
