Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I just realized I haven't posted in almost a month. The weather in Chicago has been dreary. It's been cold, grey and even snowed last week. It has me wondering where spring is and if I'll ever get to put my tights away for the season.

Part of my spring fever every year is a desire to do something drastic to my hair. Usually I think about it and then dye it a different color. This year I decide I wanted long, blonde locks. I didn't trust myself to do it, so I went to a professional who has been doing some of my friends' hair for a really long time. And, she fried it, like coming out of my scalp in clumps fried it. So, it looks like I'll be rocking a pixie cut for a while.

Here are a few before and after pictures

Before



 
     Dress: Thrifted. Bracelets: Express (I think)

After


    Dress (worn with another thrifted skirt under it) & Belt - Thrifted



If you have any styling tips, I'd love to hear them.

Shelly's Wish List: I have the Fashion Tastes of a 16-year-old!

Confession time: I love trashy TV. One of the shows I've been loving lately is The Carrie Diaries. No, it's not as good as Sex in the City. Yes, there are lots of inconsistencies with the original show. Still, I love how Carrie dresses. This week she had a few outfits I really loved:

This skirt is so cute. I would totally style it similarly, minus the blazer:


I also loved this, the Up in the Tee Tops from ModCloth:

Do you watch The Carrie Diaries? What's your favorite outfit from it?
