Hello all! I have yet another fun Halloween look to share. This week I decided to try my hand at channeling my favorite consulting detective and high functioning sociopath Sherlock!
I have to admit I REALLY love this outfit, the purple dress is very reminiscent of the infamous Purple Shirt of Sex (don’t be alarmed its a fandom thing), I feel like my coat is pretty spot on, my tights remind me ever so slightly of the glorious wallpaper that is in Holmes and Watson’s flat, and what’s more English than a pair of oxfords?
Ya I’m pretty proud of this look and hope you all love it as much as I do.
a little side by side comparison 😉ya the seriousness never lasts long 😉
Dress: Queen of Heartz
Tights: Forever 21/Similar
So what do you guys think? Was I able to do the look justice? Are you a fan of BBC’s Sherlock? If so are you dying for season 4 as much as I am? I’d love to hear from you, so drop me a line even if its just to say hi. Happy Wednesday!
It’s that time of year for me, no I’m not talking about the upcoming holidays, it’s the time of year where I feel the need to cut all my hair off because I am bored with what I have! Which is a little crazy cause I have been working so hard at growing it long and keeping it healthy! So instead of going and chopping all my hair off I decided I would just change-up how I normally style my hair. I didn’t want to damage my hair though, I mean I could’ve straightened it with the hot iron, curl it with the curling iron or hot rollers, or even dye it but like I said before I didn’t want to damage my hair, and all the heat and chemicals is not so nice. Then I remembered about rag curling, what a great idea! No heat required, just a bit of time and some scrap cloth is all you need.
I started with clean wet hair.
Then using scrap fabric I had cut into strips, I wrapped my hair around it and rolled it up.
to where I looked something like this.
I used the rag curls somewhat like sponge rollers in the fact that I slept with my hair this way. So you can imagine my delight when I woke in the morning and took my hair down and found the springiest curls!
another great thing about these insane curls is they stay all day, and give incredible texture so wearing my hair up is so easy! So easy in fact I decided to pull off a faux bob.
I decided to accessorize with one of my fave hair pieces a flower 🙂 and there you have it rag curls!
