Three Things...

This completely adorable girl makes me want to get bangs... Thoughts?


I just bought this dress from Gilt*... Clearly I need to start my spending hiatus stat.

(*If you're not already a member of Gilt, you can join with my invite...although first be warned, it's highly addictive.)


Despite the fact that I usually only buy white cloth napkins, I'm seriously swooning over these lovelies from i am dorkas...

That haircut is adorable. I bet it would look great on you! I totally want bangs, I almost got them cut last week!

Elsa May said...

ooh the bangs are gorgeous - they'd look fab!

Sarah Bradley said...

So funny you mentioned bangs. I left a message for my stylist yesterday saying I was ready to take the plunge!

Fern and Feather said...

oh I can not wait to Gilt. Love bangs.... just don't do them yourself ;)... There have been a few occasions where trimming my bangs at midnight seemed like a good idea. bad idea.

Ooh the new Gilt dress is so cute! I want it too.

XO, Your Copycat

Allison said...

YES to bangs (those in particular).

Sherry said...

love Gilt. have been trying to be on a spending diet. this may just be the cupcake that breaks it. i'm a dress girlie. love 'em.

Rachel said...

Yes to bangs, but only if you're reliable in the hair cut department. I normally only manage to schedule an appointment every year or two (or sometimes three!) so my bangs experiment was short lived. You have to be in there at least once a month!

oh i really do love those napkins...so nice with white crockery!

yes! yes! yes! to bangs! I hadn't had bangs since 8th grade and I finally cut them 2 years ago and haven't looked back. I wish I had done it sooner. they make my long hair look super modern and chic and draw more attention to my eyes.

molly said...

i agree with all the other gals when I say YES to bangs. I think you could pull them off brilliantly. And those napkins are gorgeous!

paula said...

I so admired this dress too, but I refrained. hope you share it when it comes in, but be sure not to make me regret my none purchase, ha! Oh, and LOVE bangs.

Engracia said...

I love fringes (sorry bangs), I'm sure you would look great.
Cheers

Estelle said...

LOVE the dress. So pretty. And yes, to bangs. And yes, to jumping out of your white comfort zone for a splash of color with the napkins. Great little post.

Liz said...

I have a love hate relationship with bangs. I love them when it's colder weather, but they are too high maintence for me in the summer months.
Trimming is tricky ONLY CUT WHEN DRY or else you will end up looking like Amelie unless your going for that too short cute look.

nichole said...

Yes, yes, yes for bangs. I resisted for years. Seriously in the form of strong-arming my very opinionated stylist.

I finally relented and whoa ... huge difference. I swear I look five years younger, and my hair just looks better. I shudder now when I see photos of myself without bangs. Yuck!

Mine are whispy and longer, but definitely bangs.

Do it!

Joslyn said...

Ladies...you are convincing me! thank you...

ok i think i'm going to go for it, but long and wispy like Nichole.

I'll let you know how it goes

iheartkiwi said...

i just got bangs and i absolutely love them! i say go for it!

kiwi is addicted to gilt... i think both of us need to sign up for the spending hiatus. when is it kicking off?

Christine Vi said...

I say go for it! Why not try something different?

megan-mae said...

i always find 'bangs' such a funny word for 'fringe'.

i love having a fringe, but by the time it gets too long to be a real one, i start thinking about growing it out, so i start to grow it out. And then i get sick of in-between hair and get my fringe cut again.

It never ends. So be warned if you're thinking of getting 'bangs'.

Nice dress, too!

megan said...

ooh, those napkins are perfect!

Kami said...

Hi Joslyn! I loved meeting you at Alt. You are so sweet and beautiful in person. What a fun weekend it was, I just loved it!

ps. long wispy bangs would be darling and you and a lot less of a commitment. :)

shayna said...

Just promise me you will NEVER attempt to trim your own bangs. Believe me...I have and it is always disastrous. I can already hear the "Why are you doing this to me?!" echoing through the house...but yes to bangs! you will look lovely!

Leigh said...

I love those table napkins, I need to step outside of the white ones as well. :) Thanks for the link!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Adorable cloth napkins!! :)

P.S. I'm a random passer by :)

Carpet Repair said...

Oh! This is something else, I love the printed napkins it’s adorable.

we buy houses said...
