Fashion Olivia

Remember back in the day when I used to do a fashion post every now and then? I did it partly because there is kind of a fear among mommas about posting their own pictures on their blogs. I don't know if I did it to stand up to that fear in general or to beat it in my own head or both, but I do think fashion is kind of fun. So here's a bit of what I've been wearing lately:
dress: from the hubby in our first years of marriage, boots: old, belt: ???
hair: yes, there's a sock in there! Thank you pinterest for a lovely idea to make my hair look big in a bun. It's a bit hard to just write it out, but what you do is 1. put your hair in a ponytail. 2. cut the toe out of a sock and slide the sock over your pony tail. 3. starting at the end of the sock and your pony tail, roll the sock outwards being sure to roll your hair with it. And really, that's all you do. It stays without any pins or anything. Pretty cool.
dress: another one my hubby bought me--from the Limited this Christmas, boots: same old ones
necklace and bracelet: Charming Charlie (thanks Abby!)
hair: a little gel, a little scrunching, and a little drying on low and wow, it's frizzy and curly!
Emery Jo, this one's for you! When invited to a Roaring 20's party, I tried putting my headband over my hair styled straight, but that just made me look like a hippy. So I just scrunched all my hair up and rolled it up over the back of the headband. And voila! short hair.
lace blouse: Kohl's, black skirt: old from Walmart, shoes: Naturalizer ($8 on DSW's sale rack)

  4. Love all of those outfits, but especially the blue and flapper dresses. Unfortunately being only 3 feet tall (okay, not really, but short nonetheless) I don't do long dresses or skirts well. But you look gorg in them!

  8. Aww, cute! I do the sock bun sometimes too... and since I have brown hair, I use a brown sock, just in case my hair moves around and you can see the sock. I'm tricky like that. Your hair is awesome, by the way!
