Anyway, I parted ways with the shirt in question when I cleaned out my closet to move to Virginia, but the legacy lives on. C&S and I have owned many items since then that fall into this category, from purses to shoes to jewelry to articles of clothing. My latest acquisition is the dress below, which I purchased exclusively for work. In person, I think it's actually a very flattering cut (despite how the pics make me look - self portraits = THE WORST - I actually think it makes me look SUPER skinny in real life). The issue is the fabric. I don't frequently wear prints all over. I'm getting better but I have a fear that I will look like I'm wearing a muumuu in certain prints. (Side note: sometimes I may have a light case of body dismorphia. I'm aware I am my own worst critic.) I also struggle with styling prints sometimes. They can be overwhelming if styled incorrectly. ANYWAY, the fabric of the dress in question is also a wretched polyester blend, thus making me wrinkle my nose at it further. Something about the way it feels or the lining or something always makes me wonder if it's flame retardant or if it would just melt to my skin if I were in a fire. Because I'm frequently putting myself in positions to be burned alive. Know your combustible fabrics, people; it'll save lives. I've been meaning to query my friends about this for a while (like since I bought it last spring) but I never remember to take a pic of myself when I'm wearing it. I leave it for my lovely readers to decide: sah cute or uggo. I'm to the point now where I look at the fabric and I just think corporate camo. But good or bad and regardless of what anyone thinks, it's officially part of my wardrobe.
I got my haircut, so you can kind of see the new length. it took a week longer to get it cut due to my salon inexplixably deciding to close its doors on the day of my appointment (awesome). Luckily my stylist tracked me down and I was able to reschedule for the following week. I ended up getting about 4.5 inches cut off. There was sooooooo much hair on the floor. My head literally felt lighter. Not exactly the same cut I posted in the first haircut post, but close enough.
