Hi.

Welcome to my fashion blog and design site. I'm just your typical Boston girl who brunches in Beacon Hill and curses in Southie.

Don't Make me Blush

Don't Make me Blush

This is my favorite post by far! You have no idea how obsessed I am with this dress. I want to wear it every day. As you can see, this is an amazing evening dress, or throw a sweater over it and it's cute for going out with friends for a slightly dressier party. I love pairing the dark red Chanel lipstick with it - I love pairing dark reds/oxbloods with light pinks. It's that nice balance of tart and sweet. Wish I had some earrings on with this - would have been a nice touch, oh well, next time!

My hair:
So I have a long bob going on right now, and I have very thick hair: when I put my hair up in a pony tail it just sticks straight out like a shaving brush. For this hair style I did a high half pony tail, then took the second half of my hair and put that in a mid pony tail and fussed with it - this gave the illusion of a longer ponytail with that perfect V-shape. The curls came from pin curls (NO HEAT OR ANY PRODUCT)! I'll do a tutorial next week - I wasn't sure how this would turn out, which is why I didn't capture the process. But this was the easiest hair experiment I've ever done.
