new hair + ice cream dress

dress: diy // hat: forever 21 // shoes: famous footwear

Hey everyone! I'm super excited to show you my new hair! I've always wanted to dye my hair but my parents never let me (while I was living with them), so once I got to college of course I had to turn into a rebellious teenager and dye my hair! (Don't worry, my parents, even though they didn't really like the idea, said I could do it.) My roommate Annette did it for me in the dorm bathroom while the rest of our floor watched. It was definitely really exciting and scary because I have never dyed my hair before. But I absolutely love it! It's crazy enough to make a statement, but still somewhat professional-ish-kind-of-sort-of because it's not over-the-top purple. I'm in love.

This is the first of two dresses I sewed over the summer (the second one still is incomplete), and I really love being able to wear something completely unique. Plus, who doesn't love wearing a cute ice cream/popsicle dress?

Also my friend Jenna showed me how to do newspaper nails! It's actually super easy. All you do is paint your nails, let them dry completely, then dip the nail in rubbing alcohol for about six seconds. Put the newspaper over it and hold it there for about twenty seconds, take it off, apply a top coat, and you're done! It's magic.

Hope you guys have an awesome day!
