Here's a nice summation of what's happened and what's to come!

So last night, I set out to the city to go to Tenjune. Really pretentious, model-laden, bottle popping kinda place. My girl Michelle, goes there "all the time" with her girl Ainjel, so no worries, right?

Wrong!

I get there to find out that Ainjel only has a plus 1 on her promoter's list. And as many times as they've been there, they send me over to talk to the owner to plea for entry. Not my style. So I dip...

All is not lost...here's the 'fit

Deets: really old H&M top (cut into crop), H&M skirt, Aldo Wedges, vintage belt, new highlights!

Working a little backwards...

Earlier that day, I got my hair colored by Mia of Younghsee Salon. I met her at the one of the Sobe Summer Friday parties. She suggested I go with more lighter browns, but I was nervous about that. I got a full head of highlights but my hair is still on the darker side. Next time, full faith in Mia!

BTW: I made my hair curly myself...for deets hit up the comment section and I'll tell you how.

Then today, I wore that H&M shirt that wore to Tenjune. Don't judge me...I barely spent time in it! You might say I'm obsessed with cropped tops now. And that's fine. I am.
I'm dancing at home, practicing poses...

Poses for what??

A fashion show! If you follow my tweets, you know that a couple months ago I was randomly asked on the train to model in a show where my jewelry also earned a set! Don't miss the it next Saturday!

Also next weekend is a huge sale in DUMBO where I'll be vending! I'm super excited!!
Save those dolla, dolla bills ya'll!

Cute outfits!!! Your hair looks good also. I did something similar one time. I told my haridresser I wanted "subtle highlights" and she gave me barely there. Noone noticed! ha! Gotta have s sense of humor about this stuff. But I think once you go full out with highlights, it will look stunning.

You have a great shape! Can someone please give me some hips!? :-(, :-)

that whole begging to get into a dumb overpriced wannabe-seeen-in bar is lame so i'm proud you did the right thing! my friend from work has tried to get me to go to that place and the only reference i have is seeing it in that show The City which is enough to make me pass! not to say i won't randomly end up there one day but not my style

@-metallic.: Hey lovelie! how i made my hair curly:
-Wash hair and dry til damp with a diffuser.
**if hair is too wet and dries in the next step, it'll come out looking like a mini curly fro :-/**
-Make small-medium sections of two strand twists.
-Then let hair air dry or slightly dry under a hooded dryer (while in buns)
-Undo buns/twists and pull curls apart.
**how dry/ wet your hair is before doing the twists and the time you keep the buns in will all change the effect of the curls. Playing with different variations, you'll find what works for your hair length and texture**
Then voila!! :)

@bthestylist: yay! let me know when you're here! I'll keep you posted for goings ons!

@Miss Jasmine! No, no! there's definitely a difference doesn't come across well in the shot :(

@Amanda: Thanks girlie! so glad you feel me. Not my style either! humph! lol
