Cheetah Girl

I work in a professional office that assists the public every second of the day. That being said, though, my office is still pretty laid back. They welcome dressing up on the workday before Halloween. I desperately wanted to dress in fashions that pay homage to the 1970's - mainly because I wanted to rock my HUGE wood vintage platform sandals at work with no thought involved - but a work-related announcement of a foreclosure sale prevented me from doing that. I could have done it, no one told me not to, but I figure that isn't the most professional get-up to wear when doing a serious matter. This group is used to my usual casual-friday jeans so I kept with that look and threw in my animal print boots. I told everyone I was a Cheeetah Girl. :)

Notice anything different? My hair is now in tip top condition thanks to my amazing hair stylist. She cut it just how I like it and we added a fun color on top. I absolutely love it and feel ten billion times better. It's amazing what a hair cut can do for your confidence!

It took me quite a while to find a hair stylist that I was willing to stick with, let me tell ya. I have been to zillions of salons and sat in many a different hair stylist's chair. The nice thing about me and my hair stylist? I've been a client of her's since she was in hair styling school. I visited our local Paul Mitchell School/Salon one day to get a cheap cut and she is who they matched me with. It's been a match made in heaven ever since! In fact, she told me today on facebook that I am her hair muse, that my hair inspires her. Love it! What more could I ask for? :)

These are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. They add that special something-something to an otherwise simple outfit. I bought them years ago for $7 (seven dollars!) from Meijer, which, if you're not in a state that has a Meijer, it's kind of like Walmart but heavier on the groceries... so, yeah, this was an absolute score in a random store. No one can ever believe that I bought these from there!

What is your best score from a random store?

    Three, if you want to keep those shoes, I suggest you hide them next time I come over.

  10. I am in love with your style! I love how you know how to wear sweet things (like those fabulous shoes) but make it feel like it's not going over the top.
    I can't believe you got them for $7by the way. They look like fancy nordstrom type $100 shoes. Props to you. :)
