Ensemble message:  Good-bye long, scraggly hair, hellllooooo short new ‘do!  Last Friday I mentioned how I really liked Alexa Chung’s cut because it kept the bangs.  What do you guys think, any similarities??

Hmmm, yeah, my freshly cut bangs need to grow in a bit and I think I accidentally ok'd the layers to be a little shorter.  In any case, a new haircut called for the debut of another new item in my closet.  I found this dress at Forever21, where the print and price tag both lured me in. 


I’ve been really cheap thrifty this season!  I can honestly say that nothing I bought has cost over $40, shoes included.  Actually, I just added it all up, and for the fall I’ve spent about $280 total on dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, and accessories.  (Reading this Husband?  I did good! ;) 


I also feel like I am pretty much done updating my closet.  I am still on a hunt for long cardigans and a pair of straight or skinny legged black pants.  I tried on black pants at Gap, but they fit kinda… oddly.  Booo!  Tell me, are you guys done shopping yet or am I the only one who jumped the gun? :)
