Magenta and Black







 
{Black Skinny Sateen Skinny Pants ~ Torrid / Magenta and Black Blouse ~ Vintage.Thrifted {was a long dress that I cut} / Black Suede Cut-out Booties ~ Steve Madden / Black Leather Handbag ~ Cole Haan / Black and Gold Crystal Watch ~ Kathy Van Zeeland / Gold Multi Strand Necklace ~ Thrifted}

I really wish I had a picture of the used-to-be dress that is now this blouse, which may be my new favorite item in my closet right now.  I didn't have time to take pics, the cutting happened so fast yesterday morning; SNIP SNIP! Truthfully, as a dress, it wouldn't have worked; it was way too long and way too wide at the bottom. I might have been able to pull off wearing it as a duster.  But I will never know and I just adore my new blouse!

And yes, the edges are less-than-perfect and that makes me love it even more. :)

The day I wore this blouse was also deemed the best hair day ever.  I used a new shampoo and conditioner {DOVE} which works great for weave hair. ...and they smell divine!  After washing, conditioning and blow drying, I curled small sections with my Hot Tools iron and immediately rolled them using foam rollers.  I slept in them overnight and woke up to the most beautiful curls/waves {most of the curls had fallen by the time we took these pics though}.


xoxo, thanks for reading!

  4. This color looks so pretty on you. And to think that it used to be a blouse. Would've never known.

    At least your curls are still visible. I'm going to have to try your weave method. I've been trying to find ways to keep the curls in my hair but the heat here in TX has been so unbearable. We shall see...

  7. Love the pink and black together, especially with the blouse print. "Rocked" definitely applies here.

    Also- just noticed your "Outfits" button on the side... and I really like that picture! If that cardi is from Old Navy, I have the same one, and I love the pairing with that pink shirt. It looks very feminine with just a little edge. Very pretty!
