Cutter, Stealer

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Hello, world! I can see again!! I cut my bangs a couple nights ago. I think I like it. I don't know. I just got tired of having hair in my face. Chase liked my longer bangs. He said it reminded him of when we were dating.  And then I cut them right then and there. I don't want him to remember me as his child bride every time he looks at my hair. (I got married when I was 19. Don't judge.)

If you're thinking you've seen this before, you have...here. It's the benefit of having stylish friends - you can steal their outfit ideas. You should probably take pictures of their outfits for future reference but tell them it's for science so they don't think you're weird.

  2. I love the print on your skirt. I'm a fiend for a floral print and you carry it off beautifully! And I may or may not have burst out laughing at the title of your post. Brilliant.

  7. There's a girl at church that I literally channel. Her name is Kinsey and some days when I'm not feeling inspired, I think "what would Kinsey wear" and I try to come up with an outfit like that.

    Odd, I know, but it works to break me out of a creativity slump.

  22. I usually don't like the traditional floral prints on people... but I like it on you! I've been trying to figure this out, and I came up with:

    On most women, it winds up looking like Grandma's sofa. But you are petite, so it doesn't have that same feeling.

    I love that you paired that crazy necklace with this outfit- it really makes it modern and fun... there is dowdy-danger there that you have nicely sidestepped.

  23. I really like it!! I can't believe you got married at 19! How cute! =) How old was Chase? How was it? Was it like too soon or so awesome? Haha I just think its adorable =)

  33. The bright pink shoes are so cute with this outfit, it brings out the lighter pink in the skirt and necklace!

  34. You are still a youngin'! I first got engaged at 17... then again at 22... but am now unmarried at 26. No regrets. :) But in my community people tend to marry young too! They think I'm crazy! Haha. And your outfit is adorable. When it's warm in my area, I'll make a point to copy you. <3

  40. Cute bangs! You're very ballsy for doing it yourself! I could never, far too wussy and spastic. I love the print of this skirt, I miss skirts! It's been too cold for anything but dresses over leggings.

  41. I know what you mean about 'stealing' outfit ideas. Unfortunatley, I live in a VERY unfashionable state (Montana) I have no idea why we're so unfashionable....
    So thats why I cruise around peoples blogs, "stealing" their ideas!
