From Little Things Big Things Grow

August 10th, 2010 by Selise

I want to thank you all for your lovely comments on yesterday’s outfit. Do you ever have one of those days where you cannot wait to get out of the clothes you have on? I felt bulky and awkward and man alive, can’t you tell by the pictures? Glum much? Sheesh. Also, note to the hair gods, please, please, please tell me what to do about the freaking layer of frizz that will not go away. I suppose the fact that it was/is raining wouldn’t help but come on, there’s only so long a girl can look like Kramer before she starts to take it personally.

Enough. On to today.

Like my snazzy shoes? When I was looking through the latest Emporium magazine I saw a pair of heeled tuxedo brogues with pink laces and I though “I can do that!” I just swapped out the laces of this pair I picked up a couple of months back with some ribbon that I had from High School (I have a jewellery box full of ribbon that I used to wear in my hair. Don’t think conventional though, once it helped hold a coat hanger in there…) and voila!

    Niiiiice. Vintage jacket and a diy magazine inspired shoe style? Love it. I love your unruly hair so much! You always look so laid back and cool… Oh, I miss my red hair. Maybe I'll grow mine out.. 🙂
