cream top - Nordstrom, cami underneath - F21, black bandage skirt - Express, patent peep toe pumps - Nordstrom (old), necklace - Lisa Taubes, "love" bangle - F21


It took me a long time to jump on the bandage skirt bandwagon. I liked them on other girls, but felt sort of confined whenever I tried one on. I'm not used to wearing tight skirts. This one from Express is cut for petites, and is surprisingly forgiving. I love the propotion with my new flowy cream top from Nordstrom. I was tempted to belt it, but I don't think it would look appropriate with this skirt. The gold Lisa Taubes necklace (a constant when I don't know what jewelry to wear) and my love bangle are the perfect add-ons to a fun, simple look for a night out on the town. In fact, I think I'll wear this very same outfit in Vegas come September.

***I have been wearing my hair naturally for the past week and I really enjoy the freedom of being me! No dryer, no straightener, no bs! It's Summer, to hell with it I say. The Living Proof Wave Styling Creme is great, and it does make my waves less fuzzy and messy looking. In fact, it's the best I've tried yet. My hair isn't completely frizz free, but not a total disaster. An accomplishment in my book.***

  2. Fifi: I know, I was beyond shocked when I saw it dangling from a stand. I also got one for my Bff, as well another one for myself but in silver. Gotta love F21.

  7. Can you show a clearer picture of your hair in its natural state? I think its similar to mine so I want to see it it before I invest in yet another product to tame frizz. Thanks!

    Anon: I don't have any pictures I could show you right now, but I will try to post one next week! I only got the trial size at Sephora, so I would recommend giving that a shot and reading the online reviews at Sephora.com.

  20. Comment to Anon: I just read the comments and I accidentally wrote BO section instead of the BP section of Nordstrom. Lol, sorry! I'm sure you knew what I meant but that made me laugh ;)
