O B S E S S E D: Dramatic Hair Accessories

Rodarte FW 2012, Givenchy inspired street style, Dolce & Gabbana FW 2012

I've always loved hair accessories even when I was younger. I was one of those girls who had the butterfly clips all in their hair in the nineties, crimped hair, beanies, scrunchies, and even cornrows. Over the years I've stopped experimenting with different hair accessories. I even stopped wearing hats for a few years.

The main reason was everything was a little too much with my statement glasses, which I love, but they make it difficult to wear anything else from the shoulders up. Recently I've begun to feel more comfortable with certain styles of hats and I even bought a rose headpiece. I've just realized that I need to find pieces that are dramatic to my liking, but doesn't look too gaudy with my specs.

This brings me to the images above, lately on the runway there have been some absolutely beautiful headpieces that I can't wait to get my hands on. Just the other day I bought a Givenchy inspired spiked headpiece and I'm already brainstorming on how to wear it with my peter pan collar dresses and AC/DC vintage t-shirt; two separate looks of course.

I'm still on the hunt for something similar to the Rodarte star cluster headpiece. As for the Dolce & Gabbana hair accessories, I think that will be much harder to find. They remind me so much of something that a modern day Frida Kahlo would wear.

Are there any runway hair accessories that you're loving right now?

H&M dress and shoes, Nasty Gal jacket, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, Target bag.

This is probably not my most flattering photo, but I'm posting it anyways because this is my favorite outfit to wear on a daily basis. I'm one of those people that you see around and wonder if that person is wearing the exact same outfit you saw them in a mere week ago. It's a problem, I'm working on it. It's just so hard not to wear this dress by H&M!

Although I am enjoying this warmer weather, I'm really disappointed that I have to retire my vegan leather jacket in a few months. I've probably worn this jacket almost every day since I bought it back in November from my favorite store Nasty Gal. Which by the way, if Nasty Gal is looking at this, I would DIE if you sponsored me someday in the future. I would wear the crap out of absolutely everything you give me!

Let me also take a minute to say that my boyfriend has to deal with a lot when generously taking my photos. If someone ever comes near the area we are at I freeze and yell at him to stop taking photos. I was also particularly hard to work with today because I'm having a bad case of 'bangorexia' (which is a term I like to use when I trim my bangs too short or uneven).

PS:  I think I may do a "Shop With Me" post this weekend if I'm able to go on a mini shopping trip with my camera on hand.

Forever 21 blazer, Thrifted sweater, American Apparel skirt, H&M shoes, Vintage purse.

I'm finally jumping back into blogging again. I've been meaning to for a while now, but my schedule never lined up with the person who takes my photos. For a while I used this blog for celebrating Midtown Harrisburg and my personal photography, which I loved, but what I've always wanted to do with my blog was share my personal style. So this blog will be a hybrid of my celebrating where I live while also showcasing my personal style, ect.

Some things that I am hoping to do on this blog in future posts are:
  • personal style posts (obviously)
  • video (vlog) posts
  • "shop with me" (where I showcase where I shop, what purchases I made, and how I may wear these pieces)
  • runways styles that I'm currently obsessed with
  • events, shows, trips in the area (or out of the area)
  • shop my closet
  • "my week in Instagram"
So I really hope that a lot of you enjoy what's to come and what I'll be sharing in my little corner of the online world. I'd love your feedback and ideas for future posts as well!
