I was super excited when Sugarlips Apparel kindly offered me this bright yellow dress! It has a very simple, almost basic cut, but every little detail is so me: the hue (you guys know how much I'm obsessed with the colour yellow), the retro neckline, the pockets (!!!), the triangular back opening (!!!!!!!!)... Pretty and practical? Sign me in! I spent a week trying to find the most perfect way to style it. At first, I was considering a honeybee-themed outfit, but I finally chose keep the outfit simple and to pair my new dress with crisp white accessories and mint-coloured nails. Summer is not over, after all! ;)
In other news... I cut my bangs super-short today. Well, they're not that short, but they're about an inch shorter than usual, which is huge for me. I was wearing my pinup swimsuit this morning and started longing for a shorter, fifties-inspired fringe. Then I just cut it. It's a subtle change, but it gives an edgier feel to my signature big bangs. A friend once told my that I *kind of* looked like Rooney Mara, so I used her bangs as my guide for this spontaneous haircut :)
I don't know if I'm going to grow them back to their usual length or cut them even shorter. Besides "I will work my butt off" and "I will become an totally awesome graphic design renegade", my back-to-school manifesto includes "I will let my hair grow down to my waist", so I have a feeling that my bangs will soon become the victim of my hair cutting rages!
