And since I didn't spend much money in New York, I decided to spend some dough at one of my favourite local shops, Twig. I focused on colourful yet pieces that could be pretty versatile with our wacky weather that is sure to hit soon (too soon!)
The very first thing that caught my eye as soon as I walked in was this bright green jacket, with a one-button stance. It's not too structured and the bright colour and canvas-like material is perfectly shabby-chic.
Spring, because what's fall without new shoes? I've had my eye on these $20 brogues for a while and finally snatched them up before they were gone.
And I couldn't resist these red kitten heels for only $30.
Since my hair wasn't as long as the model's it didn't turn out exactly the same, but I'm still pretty pleased, especially since it didn't take me that long to figure out how to pin a dry pin curl without the bobby pin showing.
I love the book, it's actually pretty straight-forward to follow - or at least thing style was - but I do I have one complaint. Like a lot of other bloggers who have reviewed this book, I find it annoying that the spine is not ringed (like a recipe book) but instead bound tightly, probably like glue. It's makes it incredibly difficult to keep the book open without physically holding it until it's broken in a little bit more. However, I have other makeup books that are bound like this and after a lot of use they are starting to fall apart and lose pages. Some of them, like my Kevin Aucoin books, I'm considering to rebind them with coils to make them last longer, but it's such a pain! Does anyone have any other suggestions to remedy the situation?
That said, I can't wait to try out more styles (and if anyone local is willing to lend their hair and head to the cause, let me know!)
