Vintage dress and vest. Miu Miu sunglasses. Giuseppe Zanotti wedges.

Yup, I devirginized my hair by weaving it a few shades lighter and redder - just goes to show how crappy of a blogger I've been since I did this almost two weeks ago. The next time I go in to do whatever to my hair, I think I am going dye the rest of my virgin hair the same shade but lighter. Too bad I dread waiting in a salon. There is something maddening about sitting in the same position for two hours.

Months of looking for new sunglasses, I finally found my dream pair. A good mixture of the vintage cat-eyed look I was going for and the wayfarer silhouette that unseeingly flatters my petite face. Being that I actually splurged on sunglasses (I've always struggled spending the extra cash on anything other than shoes or bags), I am no longer tempted to throw them in my glove compartment or my purse. Instead, they go in the most adorable, obscenely-large forrest-green velour case that I love so dearly. I lost both my Raybans anyway, so I am a hipster no more.

    WOW! So "stunningly chic," so simply "classically gorgeous!" Who knew, one could possibly "out-beauty mother nature," at her very finest!? :)

    Such eye-arresting, delightfully sparkling spring scenes, each one so dreamily lovely! Are you really real girl, or did i somehow wondrously conjure you up in my dreams & imagination!? :)

    Raych, that park bench shot, will forever be impressed upon my mind, as there truly couldn't be a possibly prettier park bench on planet earth! So "gorgeously fine & divine!" You seemingly, dreamily, give altogether new dimensions to the expression --- beautifully "grace the place!" So "love it!" So "love ya, babe!" :)


  13. Love the dress!
    It looks so comfortable

  14. love the hair color :) so appropriate for spring!

    mm i'm totally with you on the hard-to-find glasses for petite faces, it's impossible!

  15. Ohh miu miu sunglasses and I love the flow and how your dress dances in your photos :O

  16. cute vest :) that second photo is a great shot!

  17. amazing! truly chic.
    absolutely love the shoes and sunglasses. <3

    great photography, too!

  18. love the hair. i was red before i was blonde... so much upkeep!

    bummer about the raybans... i love my on pair of wayfayers... although i'm super obsessed with a pair of round oliver people's right now... south coast, the keeper of my paycheck.


  19. You always have the perfect shoes for your outfits. You look like a 70's model.

    I have sunglasses just like that but the tortoiseshell ray ban version. you look adorable, rock it out!

  21. those wedges are pretty awesome!



  22. Ah! Tell me why when I saw the 2nd photo I was like pulling my shirt down? Ha, like that would some how help you in the photo to make sure your skirt didn't completely fly up.

    I like the hair color. It's subtle enough that you could just get away with being like, "oh yeaaa - this just happened on its own." Whenever I go into the salon I know I'm going to be there forever so I'm texting back & forth for hours and really fidgety.


    P.S. - I'm bummed I didn't get to go to Socal with C.C. & hang out with you. You should come up (when the weathers nicer) or better yet we'll come down for sure in the summer time!

  23. Love that vintage dress!

  24. wise words;) love the vintage dress:9

  25. wow love how the skirt flies in the 2nd picture!

  26. Love the dress, and those wedges! Just lovely!

  27. those wedges are amazing!

  28. The new sunnies are seriously great (and Miu Miu haaaay girl). I love the wedges (and the dress). I love it all. And your new hair is fun!


  29. Lookin' good, Raych! The hair is awesome because it's not too different, but the subtle change makes an impression :)

  41. I LOVE the color. I recently devirginized my hair as well but did it myself. Didn't come out well, so I want to leave it to a pro. Your 2nd pic will serve as an inspiration =]

  42. I love the white dress. Also, you have to check out this band, because the Swedish-Japanese lead singer seriously looks like your doppelganger!

    Their music is pretty good too...


  43. I'm completely in love with this outfit - it has such a Grace Kelly safari girl vibe. Everything about it looks so comfortable yet still put together and pretty.

  44. It's great how the dress formed a circular shape when the wind blew it rather than just being wrapped unto itself randomly.

  45. Babbbbbes - GREAT outfit.

    Your heels in particular are making our hearts melt...


  46. Fabulous look I love it and I'm so glad that you got your dream sunnies. I sadly let my dream pair go and I didn't buy them;I was on shoe hunt,go figure...and on a side note I love your shoes!!!
