Yesterday, I had an appointment for a haircut. I had been toying around with the idea of getting bangs for a while & thought I'd start slowly by getting side-swept bangs that hit at the cheekbones. I showed my stylist (Is that what they're called?) some pictures of hairstyles I liked - she thought it was a great idea to try bangs since I'm growing my hair out & it would make it more interesting. She then told me I have the perfect face for blunt bangs if I wanted to try those. I was kind of surprised by that because I thought I would look ridiculous with them - I'm not a bold enough person to pull something like that off. However, she had blunt bangs & they looked so cute on her. I finally told her to go ahead & do what she thought would look good on me - I was willing to try anything (hair grows back, right? - even though I swear mine grows back at 1/4 of the speed as the average person). So here I am. With bangs. Blunt ones. I'm a little freaked out.
On a completely different note: I made Amy Butler's Birdie Sling a few months ago, & although I love the style of the bag (the pockets in it fit diapers & wipes perfectly), I'm not crazy about the color. Sure the fabrics look cute together, but I've never been much of an aqua type of girl (I love the color, I just don't wear it often). So I decided to make a new bag in more neutral colors - one of my favorite color combinations, black & white. I was so excited when I came across this houndstooth & stripe - now I just need to find a fabric for the lining (I'm contemplating something yellow?).
