Giveaway Winner and September Issues

The winner of the Orient Watch giveaway is:

Ninja Panda

Congrats! Someone from Orient Watch will be getting in contact with you.

In other news, has everyone grabbed their September issues? I admit that my Vogue and W magazines haven't gotten the attention they need. Let's be honest, for issues as important September/the fall bible/autumn guide to life, a fashion addict needs to dedicate a solid amount of time to drool over the glossy majesty.

I will be catching up on comments tomorrow!

Vintage Bangs and a Festival Dress

New haircut photos!

Very vintage inspired bangs-- and paired with winged eyeliner, I'm loving it. With every haircut, I always end up turning back to the side swoop bang, but I'd really like to keep up with these delicate bangs for a while. They instantly complete a hairstyle.

There's something so epically classic about a vintage bang that the look ends up feeling edgy because it's so against what mainstream is promoting.

This 90's festival dress was my most recent score from thrifting. $5!

Also, my dear readers, I discovered something shocking today. While editing photos, I realized my nostrils are different shapes! If you look in the second to last photo, and yes, I'm encouraging everyone to go stare at my nose, I have one jellybean nostril and one donut nostril. The jellybean comparison is thanks to my sister, Kat.

How did I not notice this? After 23 years?! You learn something new every day. It's not so much sad as it is amusing.

Has this happened to anyone else? You just randomly noticed something about yourself that's always been there?!

Marie Claire September 2010 Folk Rocks

Sorry for my absence as of late! I know, I know, same old reasoning due to work.

Two Updates in a Very Convenient List
1. The winner of the Orient watch giveaway has been chosen, but I'm still waiting to hear back from Orient as what to do next.

2. I got my hair cut today! I still have my length, but it's definitely a change. No more swoop! Photos to come Monday.

For now, I wanted to share an editorial from Marie Claire that I was really impressed with. Normally, I don't like posting magazine photos, but this September 2010 issue was jam packed with flawless styles.

With most magazines, I usually find them to be hit or miss, but this Marie Claire issue blew me away. Maybe it was because Mark-Kate Olsen is on the cover?

The Folk Rocks editorial is so beautiful. Here are a few of my favorite looks. The silhouettes, the hair, the makeup, the model... A+ in my book. I know where I'll be drawing my fall inspiration from.

Flannel and Lace

There's nothing like the contrast between feminine and masculine details. How about a flannel shirt and a lace bustier? Oh yes, please.

My hair boasts eternal bed head-- never perfect, but I prefer it that way.

Lace Triangle Bras

It's about time, H&M!

Lace triangle bras.

Now I won't have to go to American Apparel and pay 50% more for the same item.

The bras are really comfortable, but I haven't worn them a ton yet, so we'll see how well they hold up to everyday use. As for washing, I'm definitely going with either the hand washing method or the delicate cycle.

Also, I'm a little miffed concerning the sizing for H&M's boyshorts/underwear. I went one size UP, and they're still too small!
