The Scene
Sooo much fun last night. A little TOO much.

The end the night definitely got a bit fuzzy.

Was up bright and EARLY tho to meet my mom. Our hairdresser is leaving on vacation for a few weeks and my roots desperately needed some attention. (Madonna roots at a Madonna party are a Glamour "Do." Madonna roots for real life are a "Don't.")

She did a tres chic job with the color and the snipping and the straightening as usual. But the last few months of highlights are definitely taking a toll. Starting to look a bit strawy. Wah.

My mom also got her hair DID. Just look at how straight and long and purty it is!!! Also please note her new Paige Premium jeans for petites. Excellent fit. She's been looking for a pair for years. She has always been partial to Gap jeans so these are a definite upgrade.

In the afternoon, we met up with Mr. Diabolina and watched Stepbrothers. Mindless bawdy fun. However, it was pretty painful to watch two hours of hair THAT curly on a BIG screen. Good thing my mom and I were rocking stick straight hair, natch!

Tomorrow's my birthday - yayayyayaya!!!!

The Grade


The Commentary
Was so bleary-eyed this morning, didn't really take much care in picking out a look. Built the outfit around my new Poccahantas sandals. So fugly hot.

Originally fell for them on one of my fave blogs. Then I saw them in action on Lauren. Sealed the deal: I NEEDED THEM. And at just $24 I could justify the trendy purchase. Bought them in black too but ended up returning that pair. The dusty rose was much softer. More me.

They garnered lots of peers today. Eeks! Hoping they look just as cute on a 30-something as a pretty young thing like Fashion Chalet. Started feeling a bit self conscious by the end of the day because of all the sidelong glances. Does it show that they are too boho chic for me????

For example, I know I can't go there with those leather headbands that are so in at the moment. No matter how much I like them, I just can't wear one with a straight face. They are just too hippie for a yuppie like me.

But it appears fringe might transcend socioeconomic status/political leanings in the second half of 2008. It is popping up everywhere. Wendy B can't get enough of the high end fringed bags and boots. And apparently neither can the girls over at Who What Wear Daily. Loving the idea of purple fringe. Couture Carrie did a MARVELOUS roundup too - per usual. Makes me want every piece she features!

And today I saw this studded, punchy dream at Nordstrom. Hmmmm. Perhaps another early birthday present is in order ;)

I love your sandals (of course) and I'm sure people were looking at them with admiration and envy! Your hair turned out great.

Am laughing at "fugly hot." It's like what Benicio De Toro is.

Loving the highlights, very nice. And the sandals too. Couldn't agree more about the headbands though. They look cool but I would look like an idiot for sure.

WAIT. paige for petites??? why did i not know of this?

Sable Crow said...

I think the sandals look great. Who was giving you looks? Boys were drawn by the power of your sandals to look down your legs toward your feet. Fab! Diabolina is a devil!

Girls envy the fringe. Tres chic. Tres hot! Straight hair rocks: so Chinese-Beijing-summer-olympic-chic

You look a little Asian. I can say that because I'm a little Asian...
