{outfit} Back in Time

*sings Back in Time from Back to the Future* Yes, I am a geek like that. Moving on, Sunday night I decided I wanted to try and pin curl my hair like the lovely Annabeth did a while ago, it also reminded me of Rory's hair in this episode of Gilmore Girls [which was on yesterday, oddly enough]. I was too lazy to look at tutorials and such so I just winged it. After my shower I rolled up my hair in small sections and pinned it to my head, then I put on a scarf so I could sleep in them. Monday morning I took out the bobby pins and voila, fun curls! I opted to just leave it all flowing crazily instead of pinning my hair under my ears, I like when my hair blocks my face (I'm weird like that.) I think it came out pretty good for my first try! Everyone at worked loved it, I've never gotten so many compliments on my hair before...I was called "sassy" by one guy and "fashion model" by another, ha ha.

Since my hair was so out there I went for a simple top, which reminded me a bit of this photo of Marilyn Monroe, and then went a bit crazier on the bottom with my skirt and boots! So this is a mix of 50s style and I have no idea what else... Should I do my hair like this more often? Or be lazy and leave it straight all the time, ha ha. (when it's straight I don't do anything...I just let it dry)

Sweater: French Connection (TJ Maxx) gift, Skirt: American Eagle $?, Boots: Vintage (eBay) $11

I also decided to be a bit risque and took some photos where it looked like I was just wearing my jacket, ha ha. I was getting into the Marilyn Monroe spirit! [I actually wore my purple DKNY coat to work because this would have been a bit too crazy, but I liked it for the photos]
And here is a before shot of my hair!

  8. What? You mean Back to the Future wasn't everyone's favorite movie in elementary school? Not everyone walked around with the soundtrack in their walkman and belted out "power of love" while on the playground?

    Anyway, the curls look awesome, aren't you glad you chopped your hair and can do this now?

    Love the beaded skirt too!

  26. Ugh I wish I could curl my hair, everytime I try, it always falls straight in like 10 minutes. Suggestions for wavy hair tutorials for Asian hair? You look beautiful by the way. Leopard is the way to go ;)
