Is it time yet?

Although I'm all about the cooler months, and count the days until fall really starts in October, I'm pretty adamant about postponing fall things until the mornings are cool and foggy and the leaves are orange and red. Only then will I drink pumpkin flavored chai and read Sherlock Holmes. 

However. We decided to watch Sleepy Hollow as I've heard it's excellent and I'm completely in love with it. It's like if Supernatural, Elementary, Once Upon a Time, and National Treasure all got mixed together, but with the added bonus of lots of female and poc (people of color) characters. I mean really, what's better than that? 

Also Ichabod Crane is a total dreamboat, and 4th grade me is so embarrassed I'm saying that but there you have it. Ichabod Crane = my love. 

So now I'm fighting to stay summer positive, but it's a losing battle. I just wanna wear black and boots and get into spooky mode.

Sunday brunch at Clyde Common, and pictures in The Ace Hotel. The giant doggy was right outside our window most of the time and not a single person could pass by without smiling, petting, or taking his picture. I'm pretty sure he thought he was a cat, at one point he rolled over for belly rubs.

And for my fellow Supernatural fans, my tee says "I am the hand that gripped you tight and raised you from Perdition".

A little snap Rodellee of Adored Vintage captured on our walk today. I think I've worn this belt a week straight.

Cotton candy daydream

I've wanted cotton candy pink hair for years, long before Vixen Vintage was created, and even before I met Sam! I toy with the idea every now and again, but never follow through. Then one day I woke up, looked in the mirror, and thought "where's my pink hair?" 

Oh right, I never had it. 

And that's ridiculous to want something attainable for years but never make the jump. So I made the appointment and spent 8 hours at J. Michael Salon making my dark brown hair platinum, then pastel pink. I made it a bit more vibrant myself using Special Effects in Atomic pink and conditioner, and after setting it for the first time I really can't imagine anything else could be better. 

Watching Angelina L.B.'s hair coloring video was so helpful, because I really had no idea what to expect with coloring my hair a pastel shade. I also read hair F.A.Q.'s on Scathingly Brilliant and Mermaidens (and got completely sidetracked by their pretty posts). 

I picked up the dress today, it's something I probably wouldn't have taken home if my hair didn't match, and honestly all I want to wear right now is pink, mint, black, and baby blue. I already have some pretty colorful sweaters waiting around for fall!

I've been wearing these Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses since they first arrived at my doorstep, I love how serious the black lacquered front is, but the lining is bright and colorful. It's going to be a long summer, but some trusty sunglasses sure do help!
