This post is a) more of an exercise in vanity than usual; b) a thinly-veiled attempt to reclaim the glitz and glitter of the holidays with pictures taken weeks ago; or c) all of the above. I'm calling in a favour - just indulge me and let me show off my new...BANGS!
I took a leap of faith with my hairdresser because I wasn't sure bangs would work with my fine hair or my weird cowlick but I'm glad I did. I LOVE them. I find they change the whole look of an outfit and I can pin them back or style them to the side when I want to mix things up.
Tell me - are YOU planning any changes for 2012?
I accessorized my bangs with this outfit for a holiday party in B's hometown. I layered different textures - a velvet blazer, shiny leggings and a metallic tunic to give the outfit dimension. The tunic was an Australia find - originally $90, patiently lusted after and eventually bought on sale for $15. Bronze is a nice alternative to gold or silver - less showy, and easier to pull off with fair winter skin.
Check back in for my next post on staying stylish in the cold. N of A Fine Balance and I ventured outside on a gorgeous and sunny but bone-chillingly cold day to take some photos in winter wear. I haven't had as much time as I hoped for blog-hopping lately but I will be round soon, promise!!
