I got a hair cut last week. I really love it!  I was desperately trying to grow my bangs out. I feel like every girl should try bangs at least once in their lives but gosh, they take a long time to grow and styling is very limited. I never finished my 7 days of vintage bangs posts because I was just so sick of them. I didn't think I'd be able to get rid of the bangs but my amazing stylist blended them in and parted it and it looks awesome! Maybe now, I'll try some different styles with longer bangs and finish that series.

Autumn weather has reached St Louis and I've been wearing my favorite knitted cape everywhere I go. I love it so much, I wish I had several colors.

I haven't been wearing a lot of fancy fun things lately due to some serious added pounds. What can I say- I'm a stress eater. The stress has been pretty intense lately but I started tracking calories on the My Fitness Pal app on my new fancy phone and so far, it's been helping a lot and I've gotten back into this lovely 1940s dress. My only issue with this dress is that the buttons are decorative and it snaps up the front. Snaps plus boobs are not a good thing so I stitched it closed this morning to prevent any bustin' out.
