I don’t know about you, but I quite enjoy some ‘theme dressing’ from time to time…you’re probably thinking…what is she talking about? Well, I’ll tell you.
We read all of these fashion magazines and blogs and other meccas of fashion information that tell us what to wear and what NOT to wear…how to effectively put together a cohesive outfit that isn’t ‘over the top’ or ‘costumey’…
To me, ‘costumey’ means…’you should be at Monster Mash’. Whereas, ‘themed’ is more ‘inspired by:’ Here’s the thing, if you’re going for a particular look , or if you’re just inspired by a certain era, why not ‘theme’ dress? Besides, it adds just a bit of whimsy to life. And who doesn’t like a little whimsy? :)
Well, here’s my themed outfit. Cue: 1925. ONE of my very FAVORITE fashion decades. The 20’s were full of glamour and lust, shiny, sparkly, overindulgence. Think ‘The Great Gatsby‘, which is what inspired me (and I’m sure many others right now, as well).

I’m happy to say that this was my very first attempt at a faux bob hairstyle! And to toot my own horn, I was pretty impressed with my first try. :p It was actually pretty simple… I just pulled all of my hair into an elastic at the length I wanted the bob, (and let some of the shorter layer pieces fall naturally). Then I just tucked the pony tail under and pinned it, along with the rest of the shorter layers.

Spin! It’ll also add a little whimsy! :)
