“I lie to myself all the time, but I never believe me.”

Effigy dress via Pixie Market. H&M jacket. Forever 21 shoes

OK, so this recently acquired Effigy dress may be a summatime dress, but when temps rose back up to the 60′s after the hellish rain subsided, I had the urge to break it out.  Plus, I never really actually store away my summer wardrobe since I can get away with wearing pieces all year-round in Los Angeles.

And yes, I got a body wave (perm)!  Ever leave the salon and have those “WTF was I thinking” moments?  Well, my first thought was, “WTF, I look like a damn poodle!”  But two days later, I’ve gotten adjusted to life without my poker straight hair and am loving my new waves.

Hope you are enjoying your time off and taking advantage of all the sales!

    I love your hair! I think it looks great, plus it looks totally natural. When I hear the word “perm” I get visions of 80s hair in my head, but this looks great! The crochet dress is super cute.

    xo, Ashley

    OK, I actually love the way your hair looks. I’ve always wanted to have hair that dries with a pretty wave right out of the shower wtihout a whole lot of fussing. Do you need to do much styling? Or is this very wash and go?

    The weave suits you sooooo well! It’s playful yet edgy and still very femme. And you KNOW I’m crazy about crochet so this dress is killer. Way to go!

    Merry Christmas! Happy holidays and much love <3
    What are you doing for NYE?

    Becs!! This is one of the prettiest outfits ever! I love your hair too; you look great in waves! Topshop is having a sale but I didn’t anything I want to buy except for a few dresses. I got a bunch of basic tees from American Eagel and Gap though! How’s Mel?! Talk to you soon!! Love you! xoxoxoxoo

    Wonderful hair and dress! I can’t believe it was in the 60s! Lar and I were on the Georgia coast for Christmas, but it was in the 30s and 40s. Hope you and your sis had a wonderful Christmas!

    Hi Becs,
    I love the outfit, including the use of black & white in both the clothing as well as b&w photos intermixed with color portraits. Very creative!

    Hope you and your family are enjoying the holiday season. Have a Happy New Year!

    Now this is a fantastical look! I love the way that motorcycle jacket toughens up an otherwise very feminine look. Gorgeous!! :)
