The first time I wore this dress I went super-simple. I just wanted to see how it fit and lasted the day. Now that I know, I'm having some fun with it. And I just love how this turned out! Have you ever had one of those days? I just did. And I don't know if there's actually some look good, work hard cause-effect going on, but this was a productive day!
A note to those who suggested the straight iron Monday--I almost forgot I owned one! And boy were y'all right. This wonderful hair day is thanks to you (and the straight iron). I'm still wary of too much heat styling (my hair was traumatized by the body wave perm I did four years ago and I'm babying it to get it back to health), but I do think I'll be using the straight iron more often.
The dress. The cardigan. The belt. The shoes (showing off my pedicure from this weekend). The hair. The jewels.
Nada. Zilch. There, I said it.
Do you think there is a tangible look good - feel good/work hard/great day effect? Does it work the other way, too?
