just a better place to die


First of all...this dress.  It cost only $10 and it was worth it.  I adore the combination of the mesh and velvet.  I love the "wings" attached to sleeves, however this special addition does make menial tasks (like driving or putting on makeup) difficult, and don't even get me started on how hard it is to take off over my head when my arms are attached by this material to the rest of the dress (who knew?).  The other thing is that I feel the body of the dress does not do the rest of it justice.  In my mind, this dress should not be so body conscious, but have more of a flared (and definitely longer) skirt.  But, oh well.  Though it may not be a practical piece for anything, save Halloween, it's fun to experiment with, that's for sure.

Second of all...my hair.  One of the reasons I love Door County is because I meet so many lovely people.  One of them I met whilst zip lining the other day is a hair stylist from Chicago.  On our way back down the peninsula, she braided my hair (in the cramped back seat of a car this is no small feat).  When I got home, I threw it into this updo, added a bow, and I am obsessed with the result.  I need to start experimenting with different hair styles.  (If you live near or are visiting the Chicago area, check out the Teddie Kossof Salon Spa.  Request Mindy - she's great!)

Lastly...these shoes.  I am obsessed.

Oh my GOSH! Let me tell you something about your HAIR. It looks AMAZING. The entire outfit looks SO pretty, and the fact that it's all black makes it even more perfect than it already is! This is the first time I've ever been inspired by an outfit post on the internet ever!
