OOTD: Updo’s & Thrifted Pleasantries

An Outfit of the Day from a couple days ago…

Actually, it was last Thursday, which was an awesome day for a lot of reasons. It was my last day of Summer session I, my mommie and grammie came out to visit me, and they packed me down with a house full of groceries. I also got a job on Thursday for which I had to go in and do paperwork. As I watch my days’ progressions, it just amazing to see how many blessings God lays in my path. Can’t be anything but thankful.

gold studs – F21, gold charm necklace – SB, shirt – Free Spiiirit Vintage, cobalt pants – Thrifted, seahorse ring – Glitter, bicycle ring – SB, belt – Thrifted, camel oxfords – Thrifted

Every piece of this outfit (minus the studs & rings) was thrifted at some point. Even the necklace, which was borrowed, is a vintage gold piece that was picked up in a thrift store. Ahh, I love my thrifty days. They give life to my inner frugal fashionista! The updo was a quick, easy twist on a simple hairstyle. If you guys want a tutorial, just let me know.

Beauty Tip of the Day: Winter Red

20130111-150553.jpg

Lipliner: Midnight brown eyebrow pencil
Lipstick: NYC Retro Red

Simply line your lips with the dark brown pencil and then apply the red lipstick. Massage your lips together, rubbing the color around to blend and wa-lah! Perfect winter red lips.

Until next time! XOXO Jaz’.

Oh my Ombre’ !

Ombre’ is an artistic term defined as a color shaded or graduated in tone. The color gradients can move to dark to light or light to dark. We are seeing a lot of this trend in fashion these days, some of it in clothing, but mostly in hair. Many fashionable celebs have been rocking this sun-kissed hair-trend from Khloe Kardashian to Rachel Bilson. This is a trend I personally cannot wait to try myself, though I wouldn’t dare bleach the ends of my real hair. Next time I install extensions I will have a little DIY project on my hands! I plan to use the videos below as a guide to do my own ombre’ do.

Join me in the ombre’ adventure and let me know how it goes! if you’ve already done ombre’ show me pics of how it turned out and let me know your tips for achieving sun-kissed locks.
