the green dress

i picked up this great green dress during last september during NYFW from Urban Outfitters.
it's a light jersey material that doesn't wrinkle...perfect for this insane humid and hot weather. but i have a hair trick for humidity and its 2 items Arrojo frizz control while hair is wet and Garnier Fructis Style Sleek and Shine Anti Humidity Smoothing Milk (once you've styled). it doesn't matter if the humidity is 100% your hair will be flawless. (trust me)

Dress: Urban Outfitters | Shoes: L.A.M.B. Mirage | Bag: Vintage Coach
Bracelet: Forever 21 | Ring: ASOS | Lipstick: NARS Heat Wave
well there's not much to say except... double sided sticky tape is awesome. i am super amped about fashion week. its really one of my favorite holidays. dont get it twisted its not all glam and clothes...although it really is! last fashion week my feet hurt sooooooooooo bad. its a lot of standing in line and waiting to get into shows but its definitely an experience to sit front row in complete darkness...and feel the electricity in the room of everyone in anticipation. then the music blast the light is blinding white and then models come..and the clothes do too.
its an experience well worth my swelled feet!
Check out what i wore last NYFW Spring 12!
ps...YAY my September Issue of Elle arrived...please excuse me for the next hour!

  2. This color is great on you! Thanks for the tip on beating frizz! I'm always on the hunt for an anti frizz product for my thick curly hair. Just ordered from Arrojo.
