Let It Be

stripes8

 Okay so remember that time I told you I was going to dye my hair back to my natural shade?  Well, it didn't quite work out.  As it turns out, dying your hair bright red at a salon (as well as weekly treatments at home) can make that pretty difficult.  Five hours later we got my hair a nice auburn color.   It isn't quite my natural color, but I need to give my hair a break so I can eventually go back.  I love red hair anyway so I can't even say that I'm bummed!
 
I also want to mention that my Modcloth modeling debut is up!  I wore fifteen different pieces ten different ways.  It was such a wonderful experience and you can check it out by clicking HERE.

Dress- Modcloth (remixed)
Cardigan- Forever 21
Tights- Modcloth
Shoes- Target
Belt- Forever 21
Bag- c/o Debshops
Hat- Forever 21

This dress is definitely a favorite of mine.  You may have seen this on Flock Together earlier this month when the girls and I did a stripes challenge.  Naturally, I wanted to pair stripes with lots of bright colors.  I was especially excited to incorporate my new clutch from Deb Shops.  I've always wanted to own an envelope clutch and I love this color so much.  How do you like to wear stripes?

  3. Wow! You did an amazing job for ModCloth! Fabulous!

    I had been told that getting your hair red is the hardest to achieve and then the hardest to get rid of.

    Were these photos taken before or after the re-dye job? It still looks really red here. Lovely though ; )

  15. bonsoir Ashley, il ne faut pas regretter, toute expérience est bonne, même négative, quand elle n'est pas irrémédiable et qu'elle est comprise :-) plus près de la teinte naturelle seront vos cheveux, plus vous serez en harmonie avec les traits et le teint de votre visage... je crois que votre coiffeur vous l'avez dit, lui aussi :-)

  16. I love this dress on you and I think your hair looks perfect. I was red during high school and I still have remnants of it coming back up -- so I feel your pain! Also random, but I'm wearing this dress today and it goes past my knees. Which means I'm going to look so short next to you!

  17. Ah I had bright red hair like yours about a year ago and I'm still dealing with it! Every time I dye dark brown over it within three months the red shade comes back out! Love that dress, you look beautiful! And all your modcloth photos are so cute!
