Mad Me

I sure am glad it's Friday! I've finished my two exams of the day and now I can have a memory dump. Even better, I can catch up on blog stuff! Hooray for Friday.

This outfit was worn to a birthday party I went to last weekend. I was a little fancy, but oh well. Also, I did my hair all by myself which is pretty impressive for me. I've been spoiled with a hairdresser mom so I never really had to learn how to do anything special to my hair. It took me forever to get it decent-looking, but I was proud of myself!

dress; earrings; bow: forever 21
shoes: shoe carnival?
belt: thrifted
necklace: italy from Jeanie



This was supposed to be a luxurious pose, but it just looks sleepy.



I got a few comments that I looked like I was from Mad Men. I'll take that as a compliment because I love those outfits! This does look a bit 60's-inspired though. I think it's the hair.




Well, I'm going to relax the rest of tonight and use my brain in very small amounts. Happy Friday everyone!

This dress is absolutely stunning on you! I love the color and the fabric--so gorgeous and you are so lucky to have a hair dresser for a mother. Can she come and do my hair please? ;-)

This is such an absolutely gorgeous look! That dress is amazing, and your hair looks SO good! Im impressed you did it all yourself, I wish I had a hairstylist for a mom, but my aunt is one, so it's helpful :)

I think the dress is perfect for a birthday celebration, not too fancy :)

Wild Flower said...

So pretty Jamie! Dressing too fancy is practically the story of my life, it's just more fun to dress up then dress down! I also think your hair looks wonderful, I would never be able to do something like that on my own!

I absolutely adore this miss! Hey, dressing fancy just means you know how to dress "smart casaul" right? ;P Your hair looks BEAUTIFUL! I'm going to try out a half/beehive like thing on valentines.. usually when I try to style my hair it ends up either fried, a roll brush tangled in it hanging from my head, or frizzed and yanked up into a pony tail - haha!

That dress is gorgeous, and your hair turned out super cute! I would so do my hair like that with the bangs and the volume if I still had long enough hair.
