Louise Brooks

 Hair - Mastercuts, c/o Mom
Dress - Faded Glory
Tee - Gap, thrifted
Sandals - Nine West, thrifted
Freshly cut

My mom has been so awesome since D is no longer employed. She paid to get my ragged locks sheared back into something resembling a hairstyle. I was so tired of the tangled "ducktail" that flipped out and planned to just leave the sides as-is, trim the bangs, and remove the 'tail. I was worried it would come out too childish (if you were a kid who grew up with the helmet-bob, you know what I mean), but after seeing this post over the weekend I was sold on the idea. It's way more cutesy than I normally go for, but I think I like it.

Back, neckline got shaved to create this shape
The outfit is less inspired. I wanted color, loose layers and to wear my new sandals. I wasn't torn up over the white sandals that broke because that very day I thrifted these. I originally wanted a nude/cream sandal when I began the hunt. These weird little sandals were at goodwill for $4. They're not the most foot flattering, but they have a fun heel and great color. Oh and they're Nine West.

Also for the curious, I've been only thrifting sandals because I tear them up very easily. I'm klutzy in anything but a solid shoe or boot and have a tendency to wear out a sandal before the summer is half over.

  4. @ Keely - thanks! He's looking, but concentrating more on school and getting certified/degree. Taking it one day at a time, and with the help of both our families we'll make it through.

  7. Your haircut is super cute! Go mom! I wish I could pull off a cute cut like that! These colors are great together and I love the knotted belt! As for thrifted sandals, I think that (as you have previously talked about) the price for wear is really a great decider. If you rock $13 sandals 20 times, they were already worth it.
