Tasting much sweeter than wine..
Honey and wine was the theme of today’s outfit. I love this dress so much, and older followers of mine will recognize it from several months ago when I bought it from ASOS. For this outfit though, I really thought it needed more than black accessories, and so I added some wine hints throughout the ensemble. There are some really brilliant end-of-season sales right now, and I decided to show off a few of the bargains I nabbed recently (most of which you can still get in-stores)!
Here’s the rundown:

Just as I thought that the mustard trend would be leaving me forever (or at least for a long while), jewel tones start to appear to be a popular choice for Spring and Summer 2012 and these gorgeous accessories make me feel up to date with trends again. I do feel like my haircut is lagging a bit behind though; in my excitement to have waist-long hair again, I completely forget how badly my long, unlayered hair used to look in high school and I can feel the cringe coming on. I’m thinking I’ll need to bite the bullet and hire a good hairdresser to style my hair for me.. Any suggestions on Brissie hairdressers??
