Not the best pictures in the world because every color somehow blends into the background. But, you get the picture. I dyed my hair the other day and it was supposed to be blue black, but it just looks black. School gives busy days and either bad pictures and good grades, or good pictures and bad grades. Maybe I'll get my roommate to take better pictures.

I got super grannied out today. I was wearing lace on lace on velvet and felt super fancy. That's okay though, because it is super healthy to feel fancy. Which has brought me full circle to grannies wear lace and probably velvet so they must feel pretty healthy, too. What logic. :)

So, as I was link jumping the other day, and I found this blog post with pictures of disney princess inspired dresses by big ol' designers. Like any other young girl growing up in american, I was babysat by disney princess movies and am attracted to anything princess related. More than anything, it's probably the idea of falling madly in love and getting to wear pretty dresses. So, to feed that never ending hunger I give you four of my favorite pictures from the post. (click that link above to see all of them)
The last is a Rapunzel inspired dress by Jenny Packham. I love the glitzy back of the dress which is strung in the jewels. I don't know why Rapunzel is wearing something so dark... maybe because she was locked in a dark tower for so long. Of all of the dresses, this is my favorite... so long and elegant.
I've seen a lot of this red color in a lot of photos. I've heard it called oxblood, or wine red, but I think of it as a rock and roll color. It could perhaps be called rock 'n rouge if I was naming a nail polish color of it. I think it's a great color especially for this fall. I think it's sort of sensual, sophisticated, and mysterious. Plus it can break up my attraction to the black and white clothes I wear.
I found this shawl on the sidebar that I think is super pretty. It's massive expensive but it's okay to be a dreamer.
It could be evened out with black lined eyes, dark hair, and dark clothes like in the next picture.
So here it is, the new fad color that is seen all over. Personally? I love it. It mixes a sensual gaze with an androgynous edge. Mostly it is just a shade of red which supposedly looks good on everyone but because I love black, I love dark red.
