Chair Sessions

Tights - AA; Shirt - Vintage Ralph Lauren (bf's); Mask - from the French Quarter
While in the French Quarter the only souvenir I cared to bring home was a handmade mask.  We found one store with an impossibly gorgeous selection on Royal Street and spent a good thirty minutes blissfully making our decisions.  Had I had the money to frivolously spend on an extravagant mask I probably would've brought home one of the giant, Vegas showgirl style head pieces...since that would be practical.  Now I'll patiently wait for someone to host a masquerade, but until then I'll just wear my mask around the house.

Slippers - Vintage
These are my new flats...we are very happy together.  I was pretty shocked when I found these while out treasure hunting for the store because a) they easily resemble all of the embroidered designer slippers I've been drooling over lately and b) they actually fit my Wiley Coyote feet!  It's nearly impossible to find vintage shoes in my size, especially a pair in such perfect condition for only $4.  The thrifting gods must have been smiling upon me...maybe I should take them off now.

Garnier Fructis Moroccan Oil Treatment, $4.69
As I've gotten older my hair has unfortunately gotten dryer and dryer, leaving it frizzy, unmanageable, and just plain ugly.  I've actually been very kind to my hair my whole life; there was once an ombre but it has since been cut all off and that's the minor extent of my hair color history.  "OMG I'm drying up," was my first thought, but then I remembered that I'm only 25 so I stopped freaking out and began to search for a remedy.  I've tried countless products with the word "Hydrating!" on the label in my quest to quench parched locks; I've also doused my head in olive oil, committed to weekly deep conditioners, and switched to paraben and sulfate free products.  Until now NOTHING truly worked.

On Friday I randomly picked up a bottle of the Garnier Fructis Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment at the grocery store simply because it's really cheap and I liked the smell...a lot.  I was also no stranger to the whole argan oil trend that's currently running a muck, so I figured there's a good chance this product might be legit.  Oh man, it's sooooooo good.  Seriously.  Upon first use my hair felt incredibly soft and weightless.  The best part was styling it because I hardly had any frizz at all and my hair did whatever I told it to.  It just makes your hair the best possible hair it can be.  You also have options when it comes to applying this oil treatment - to damp hair, dry hair, or spike your conditioner with it.  It all works brilliantly.  Ugh, I just love when something super cheap surpasses my expectations.  My head will look crunchy no more!

Blouse - F21; Shorts - F21; Cardigan - Thrifted; Shoes - Kohls; Socks - Kohls; Sunglasses - Steve Madden
Nude, patent loafer Mary Jane pumps....yesssss.  So much going on in one shoe, but it all fits perfectly together somehow.  I think I actually shrieked when I found these, at Kohl's of all places, because they're a spitting image of the Miu Mius I'd been coveting.  And obviously I have a penchant for wearing the wrong shoes on the wrong terrain - teetering in heels is just too much fun I suppose.  Sunday was a ridiculously gorgeous day full of all of this golden light, which is probably why I dressed for spring instead of fall.  Whoever said you can't wear white after labor day clearly never experienced a Texas autumn.
