My face looks big with this new 'do

Monday, April 04, 2011
Trying a new 'do. I'm getting tired of my bangs. And I'm too lazy to go to a salon. And I'm too crazy to do it myself. Side bangs are hard. You actually have to try.

I went for an Emma Pillsbury look and wore my buttoned-up cardigan as a shirt. It was okay. I could've easily gone too librarian if I had worn my glasses...which I did for the rest of the day at work. Just call me Mrs. Hearn. Really. It's my name. (And my mother-in-law's.)

  2. I am in the same exact position with my bangs. Its been 10 weeks and I still have 2 weeks to go until my appointment so I am rocking the side bangs, which are a pain in the bottom to get to work sometimes.

    This outfit, even if it is like Emma Pillsbury, is adorable. And you look fantastic, as always.

  3. Every time I see my Ikea curtains (the exact same as your skirt), I want to pull them down and cut them up and make a bajillion skirts just like yours...I love it!

  5. I definitely see the Emma Pillsbury inspiration there; so very neat and cute. Hopefully without the slightly OCD and extremely germaphobe tendencies. :D

  6. I am totally loving the shoes with the skirt. I think I told you before - I recognize the fabric you used for the skirt. I JUST LOVE IT! You are the 2nd person today that used their cardi as a top. Must be a trend! :) I think I might try it. Your shoes are killer. And your face does not look big, sweetie. Seriously! You are gorgeous. I'll bet you were adorable with your glasses on, too! Cheers!

  8. Very cute. One of my fav. outfits that you have posted.

  9. Your curtain-skirt gives a really lovely element of luxury to your outfit today. I'm not really getting the librarian vibe, though. Emma Pillsbury yes, librarian, no. Unless you're Emma Pillsbury's relative who happens to be the most stylish librarian ever. Then I could see it.

  10. Side bangs ARE hard, I've been getting mine cut every 3-4 weeks just so I don't have to try. Also, I'll never get sick of those Tsubo shoes.

  11. I like the new do and I feel your pain I am too poor to get my hair done and I am crazy enough to do it myself. I actually cut my own bangs. I learned how to do it by watching a video on you tube hahaha.

  15. That's such a pretty cardigan! I like the details on it (: I used to love my bangs cause they looked really good but then got tired of my forehead always breaking. True story

  16. Your shoes are so sweet and pretty!

  17. This hair do looks really good on you! I usually trim my bangs myself when I don't feel like going to that salon. Usually the result is pretty good.. usually.

  18. That first photo is lovely, you look really stunning.
    The skirt and shoes are especially nice and match together so well.

  19. I'm rocking the side bangs lately as well, it started as 'my bangs are to long' but now I really like them. I have an abnormally large forehead (it's called FIVEhead) so I pretty much have to have bangs.
    This 'do looks super cute on you and side bangs are definitely the chic-est way to grow out your bangs.

  20. Lovely, I like your outfit and hair. :)

  21. Ladylike and pretty, with a hint of edge - another fantastic outfit, Ela - er, Mrs. Hearn!

  22. It's good to see those Tsubo shoes again; the Target clogs were stealing all the blog-attention. I was starting to miss them.

  34. If you haven't done this already, try blow drying your bangs to the side after you wash your hair...it helps with mine anyway... :)

  47. I'm digging your Emma Pillsbury, especially in this color combo. Very sophisticated color palette.

  48. hmmm...if your really crazy you would just chop them off! :) Is having a bigger face a good thing? Or a bad thing? lol

    Thanks for commenting on my blog.

  49. I have the same problem now where I'm trying to grow my bangs out and they just wont do anything but get in the way. Bobby pins and hairspray works but usually you want to chop your bangs off all over again to avoid this, I think this is what starts the vicious bang cycle!

  50. Where do you get all of these JCP gift cards? lol. Oh and.... I love everything about Clothed Much!

  57. side bangs are so tough! not only do you actually have to do your hair but you have to get regular bang trims so it doesn't look all sloppy. i'm such a lazy hair person that i've all but given up on my side-swept bangs unless i'm feeling really saucy.
