Look of the Week: A Little Bit of Change

I told you I had a surprise for you...I dyed my hair for the first time ever!

I chose a colour similar to Emma Stone's previous hair colour (before she went blonde). With blonde hair, I try to stay away from neutrals somewhat because it's just too little colour and looks drab. With my new hair colour, I'm excited to have a whole new colour palette to work with. It'll look much better with neutrals and will looks much better with softer shades. This will also mean an entirely different make up palette will be available to me too: more browns and neutral tones. I'm not quite sure how my red lipstick will fit in yet, but I'm sure I'm sure I'll find a way to make it work!

As the fall weather finally caught up with us this week, I thought it would be appropriate to cozy up in a local coffee shop in North Vancouver to escape the cold. I had a delicious pumpkin spice latte while I sat there looking admittedly preppy. I'm noticing my outfits have become almost 100% thrifted lately...which speaks to how much of my wardrobe is thrifted now (it's an addiction!). The dress is great since it's made of a thick knit - perfect for when you want to wear a dress in the fall. No sacrificing warmth here! You'll get all the details on that dress here. If you want to add a preppy touch to any outfit, I love to throw on my plaid 'Burberry' scarf. Add my FENDI glasses to the mix, and I think we're pretty much at geek chic status!

  3. The new hair colour looks amazing on you! Very Mary Jane from Spiderman :)
    And it's so true about the softer colors -- I always wish I could pull them off, but it never looks quite right with my blond hair. Good choice for fall!

  5. I'm new to your blog so I've only seen a few pics of you with blonde hair but I must say I LOVE the red hair! I've wanted to dye my hair this color for quite some time but its a little difficult to get the color right when you start off with dark brown hair.
