Besties Gone Blond

Last weekend my BFF came to visit Nashville!!!  I decided to get my hair done a little differently and knew I wanted to have some more blond put in.  Just to switch things up a little ya know!  A friend recommended William Edge Salon in Nashville so I went to try it out.  It is an Aveda Salon but their stylists are all on salary.  They do not accept gratuity.  When I walked in I was provided with the regular Aveda Tea & fruit infused water, however they also offered me a beer or a glass of wine.  I did not accept because I was a little on edge about changing my hair and going to a new salon.   (Thinking back, a beer or wine would've been the thing to take the edge off...haha)  Anyhow, everything turned out great, my stylist Aimee really listened to what I wanted and she did a fantastic job!  When Payal (my bff) arrived the next day she loved my hair and wanted a little change herself.  I called the salon, thinking they would not be able to fit her in as it was Saturday morning.  Aimee was very accommodating, made room in her already busy schedule and even invited me to tag along.  We were greeted with mimosas, which I did take advantage of this time.  Aimee did a fantastic job on Payal's hair!  She was so gracious to put up with our shenanigans and us gabbing like, well, two grannies in a hair parlor.  We had a fabulous time and were ready to hit the town- as blondes!  I still am not sure if blondes or brunettes have more fun, I think Payal and I do, no matter the hair color. ;)

Peplum Hem Pencil Skirt

I recently purchased this peplum hem pencil skirt from Asos.  I loved the color and the look of it online.  But wearing it and walking around in it is a different story.  It kept riding up as I walked around for this little shoot, and bunching in not great places.  I had thought I was going to be absolutely in love with it.  Ah well, ya can't win them all.  Here are a few of the pictures that actually turned out because David had reminded me to pull it down.  I still like the look of it when it's cooperating.  The hunt continues. :)

Cat Tights

Halloween is almost here!!!  What are you going to be?  When I was doing some costume shopping a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon these cat tights at Party City.  They were only $8.00, so I thought, what the heck, they are cute!  Sadly enough, they weren't made well at all and the hemming on them wasn't straight.  In order to have the cat faces appear on my knees, the waist area had to be crooked, does that make sense?  Incorrectly sewn tights are very uncomfortable.  Uncomfortable tights beg to be fidgeted with.  Tights that you fidget with- yeah I ripped a huge hole in them within the first 15 mins of having them on.  Ah well, they were fun while they lasted.  Meow.

Cozy Cool

I snagged up this cozy knit at the Urban Outfitter's summer sale.  It was probably the best deal I got all season.  Half off already sale prices- I mean come on!  Now that things are cooling down a little I finally get a chance to revel in it's glory.  It is by Ecoté and is made up of a combo of sweatshirt/ sweater like fibers which is supreme for me because I can not stand an itchy sweater!  I won't do it, I just won't.  I love the blue aztec prints, but this thing is soooo soft!  It will be my new jacket and blankie, my... jankie?  I am guessing I will be living in it come winter.  And I am okay with that, I just hope my husband and friends are.  ;)

Fall Floral

Ahhh!  September was such a busy month you guys!  It just flew by!  I had my hands full creating 7 elf costumes and 6 rainbow bright sprite costumes for Comicon Wizard World in Nashville.  It was such a fun event, and it really revved me up for Halloween!  The wheels they are a turning.  We also took a mini vaycay down to the Gulf Shores.  I had never been there before.  It was very lovely and very relaxing.  I could defiantly see us going back again next year.  Until last weekend it hadn't really been cold here, so putting together a fall outfit that I wasn't sweating through was a bit of a challenge.  Luckily this trapeze top that I got on sale from Express in July was just the trick.  It has a nice floral/ fall pattern yet the fabric is light and airy and very soft against the skin.  Win win!  Fall fashion here I come!
