If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?

What I’m Wearing…

* Heavy wool maxi skirt is vintage… my mom made it for herself 100 years ago {okay, maybe more like 40}… the hem has fallen out over the years but I like it this way. See how I wore it here as well
* Cream grandad sweater from Asos {see it in blue here}
* Soft pink blouse by Zoe & Sam from GILT also seen here and here with gray
* Vintage flesh toned belt with gold clasp
* Forever 21 Sunglasses from ages ago, Bebe knit hat
* Vintage gold dangly earrings, gold branch bracelets, Tiffany pendant necklace
* Blush suede ankle boots by Sam Edelman… these are my favorites lately. Comfy for all day.

* Title: Kendrick Lamar – Poetic Justice ft. Drake

* Hair: major afro curls… this was my afro best yet. I’m going to update this hair tutorial because my old one is sort of half-assed.

I mean, I’m so in love with my hair like this, I wish it was naturally this curly. Though usually we want the opposite of what we have and I’d probably long for straight hair. What’s crazy about these no heat curls is that they almost damage my hair more than when I use heat styling tools, which sounds crazy, but is true. You can go a few days with this style because the oils from your scalp don’t penetrate the hairs and make it look dirty, which is good fun! However, you can’t brush these curls, though you can use a pick, but they start to get really tangled and begin to dread soon after. After I finally washed it, I spent a good 40minutes combing out the tangles. It wasn’t fun. But totally worth it.

I love light neutrals in the snow… it’s sort of camouflage in this environment.

    LOVE the hair! The white so looks stark against the snow – quite a cool effect.

    My mom did my hair in rag curls once and my ‘fro lasted a week. Seriously. I didn’t want to shower because I loved the curls so much. I, too, wish I had maniac curly hair. Mine is red, so you’d think it’d want to curl, but no… it’s straight as a board. Sigh.

    Much Love,

    Sorry to burst your bubble but your hair doesn’t look good. Kind of root-y and flat on top? Maybe if you could make it an afro shape it would look better. Just my opinion.

    The big hair is great with this outfit! I love the “softness” of the entire look. :) The colors and textures are all perfect!!! :D

    I always like how you style your hair. I am just not that good at styling mine at all so I leave it as is all the time.

    the curls are hilarious, romantic, fabulous and FUN! i love them.

    every now and again i think of curling every single hair on my head with a curling iron. it would take 4EVER, but i would finally have my long-awaited afro. lol. maybe someday i’ll do it, but it wouldn’t look nearly as good as yours does!

    How cute is this outfit? I just love it! And the sunglasses are amazing, I can’t believe they are Forever 21, they look so luxe somehow!
