August 11, 2010: I've Been Keeping A Secret...

If you take one look at this picture you'll know what it is... My hair is crazy curly! I have had it straight for about two years since my graduation from college and today is a first day in a long time that I am letting it free. I didn't straighten it because I dislike my curls, I in fact LOVE them! I did it because I chopped all my hair off (or to my chin) and liked it better straight. I actually think it's still a bit too short in all it's curly glory but, I couldn't resist leaving it natural once I realized that the keratin had finally started to wear out and (I'll be honest) was feeling a little too lazy to blow it out last night! There are still a few pieces in the front that are straight so I just pulled them back.

Maybe my no hassle attitude is because my schedule is packed today: employer breakfast at a local college, goodbye lunch with one of my fav interns, regular work stuff, and a picnic dinner tonight at Boscobel while seeing Taming of the Shrew with family at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. I will be floating through it all in these forgotten shoes! I really wish I had used them sooner, they are so light and comfortable much like their predecessors (which I never owned a pair of) but,  less scary. Plus, I love the fact that I could get a little pattern mixing in! Polka dots and tweed anyone?
  • Top: red tank top with rosette embellishment, LOFT with a tank top underneath for the modesty
  • Bottom: black and white tweed skirt, thrifted/no tag
  • Shoes & Accessories: black and white polka dot wedges, Very Volatile via Mandee; my abuela's vintage silver hoop earrings; black Spy Bag, Fendi


  1. Nice pattern mixing. Those shoes are adorable and your hair looks AMAZING!

  2. Love the curls! As a naturally straight-haired gal, I am forever jealous of hair like yours.

  3. Lovely curls! I wish I could get that kind of definition, my hair will always just be wavy at best.
    The polka dot shoes are adorable, and work so nicely with the look.


Thanks for your feedback! I really look forward to hearing from you...
