Garnier Gets Colorful

20140722-151326-54806990.jpg
I have only dyed my hair once, and it was only the tips. I had to bleach the ends and dyed them pink for breast cancer. The bleach killed my hair, and the color faded incredibly fast. I’ve never dyed my hair another shade because I could never get my natural color back from a bottle. My natural hair color isn’t black, despite what you might see. It’s dark brown that sometimes turns reddish with faint blonde streaks in the sun. Of course, I’ve tinted my hair with purple, pink, and blue with Manic Panic dyes. But it’s only temporary, the hues only show up faintly in the light on my dark hair.

Garnier just released a new hair color product. For those of you interested in dying your hair bright colors without the long term commitment, this is for you. Garnier Color Styler comes in five shades and can be used on all hair types and colors. The color is clay based and can be applied in six easy steps. Plus, it doesn’t damage your hair. You apply the color to dry hair, and there is no rinsing involved. I’ve never gotten bright colors to pop on my dark hair, but I will definitely be trying this out in several colors. The color runs about $7, and can be found online on their site or at your local drugstore or Target. I will try this out in the next week or so, and post again with the results. I’m so excited for this product from Garnier!

Selling Marc Jacobs Pink Dress

I bought this gorgeous, one of a kind Marc Jacobs dress in New York last summer. I never wore it, and am selling it now. It’s a pink dress with a bow in front. The original price of this dress was $995. It’s incredibly beautiful and well made. I just have nowhere to wear it. It’s a size 4 and fits true to size. I have all original tags and it’s been in the dust bag ever since. If you’re interested, I have the dress listed on eBay and on PoshMark. I’m taking reasonable offers. http://www.ebay.com/itm/261524996539

I love a good sale. It’s the only way to shop, especially as a broke single girl. With my need for beautiful designer things, I’m always on the lookout for the best sales. I don’t think I’ve ever in my life paid full price for anything. Right now is a good time to catch the biggest markdowns from Spring-Summer collections. Net-a-Portér and Ssense are having the two best sales, in my opinion. Both stores have marked things down up to 70% off. Plus, they have pieces that you won’t find anywhere else. Hop to it before these sales end! You won’t want to have that remorse for not buying something that was at such a great price.

Splurge vs. Steal

Ugly shoes are the new trend. Mandals are appearing in designers new collections everywhere, and fashionistas are taking note. At first, I hated this trend when it started last year. I’m seeing these shoes everywhere now, and I kind of love it. Target has even jumped aboard with several options from Sam & Libby. The two sandals above, can you tell which are $800 and which are $29.99? The two shoes look almost identical. They have the same shiny silver color, same stud details, and even the same Velcro straps. Only noticeable difference, to someone who has an eye for fashion, is one is real leather with more studs and the other is man made materials. The top pair are Giambattista Valli’s double slide sandals. They retail at about $800 and come in silver, black, and beige. The other shoe is from Sam & Libby for Target. They are only $29.99 and come in black, silver, and camo. If you like designer names but can’t afford the price tag, go for the Target version. I just picked up the silver ones. They’re very trendy and quite comfortable. Plus, until Wednesday you can get them for an extra 25% off if you use cartwheel. Great deal, right?! If you love this trend, save yourself $775 and pick up a pair from the Sam & Libby for Target collection.

I keep seeing this amazing video everywhere. J.Crew posted it awhile ago with YouTuber Casey Neistat. He made the video for J.Crew’s Ludlow Traveller suit. Watch the video for much needed summer style inspiration.
