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.

Crop top - Thrifted; Skirt - American Apparel; Necklace - H&M; Bag - F21; Boots - Topshop
This was a busy, busy day so I didn't want an outfit that was too fussy.  Since starting my vintage store I've been drawn to simplicity and comfort when it comes to dressing; sadly there's been little time for playing elaborate dress up lately so neutral basics it is.  I don't mind too much because I recently found this basic top; the most perfect basic CROP top! For like $7.  Five years ago I never ever thought I'd ever wear crop tops or high-waisted skirts, much less together.  Never say never, I suppose, because now this silhouette is all I ever want to wear.  And yep, that is a camouflage jacket I'm holding.  Too bad I didn't really get to wear it since it was 90 October.  I have no idea what a real autumn is like, constant heat is all I know despite my coat collection.

French Quarter

New Orleans, LA October 14th - 16th, 2012
There's nothing quite like the French Quarter.  Two days of sheer decadence.  Definitely one of those vacations that warrants it's own vacation.  I want to go back again, and again, and again, and again....

Goodbye Pores

The Fab Pore, $25
Hands down, the best face mask to ever grace my skin has got to be The Fab Pore Facial Peel. Every other mask I've used simply does two things-exfoliate and deep clean. Yes, this is expected from a mask, but Soap and Glory's little miracle worker does so much more. It literally shrinks pores! They're gone in a mere 15 minutes. As I've gotten older my pores have dreadfully gotten larger and sad looking, so this is the find of the century for me. The pore shrinking effect doesn't last forever, but it'll give you a good 12 hours of perfect skin. The deep clean this product delivers comes very close to that of an actual spa facial. Seriously. Blackheads are magically flushed away as if they never existed, and ugly breakouts suddenly look less offensive. The mask is ideal for those who are acne-prone, and it doesn't seem to anger sensitive skin in the slightest. Since using this product 2 to 3 times a week I have definitely seen a vast improvement in my skin, and in keeping breakouts to an absolute minimum. A little does go a long way, even using it excessively, like myself. Plus, this stuff smells like something you wouldn't mind smearing allover your face.

Corner Store

Blouse - Zara; Shorts - American Eagle; Heels - Zara; Bag - Vintage; Necklace - Vintage; Sunglasses - H&M
I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about wearing peplums of all sorts at first.  They just seemed far too lady-like and polished for my liking.  The thought of wearing something so frilly quickly appealed to me once I visualized pairing peplums with more distressed, edgy pieces like leather or relaxed denim.  So yeah, this is my favorite top at the moment; it goes with everything and is somehow relevant to all situations.  Now I'm in search for the perfect peplum skirt to wear with grubby, worn out concert tees and a leather motorcycle jacket...this is how the clothing acquisition never ever stops.

This colossal, candy-colored clutch makes me soooooo incredibly happy.  So much color.  I'm sure it once belonged to a cocktail sipping, Miami dwelling granny in it's previous life (I like to make up past lives for all my vintage treasures).  The best part is the overwhelming tassel.  I love tassels.  And I'm pretty sure every single fashion blogger has these shoes now, and for good reason-they quickly filled the delicate, strappy shoe void in my closet for only $50.  It's a nice departure from all my ridiculous platforms.
