This past Wednesday I went and got my haircut by a vintage style lovin' lady named Layla Sullivan of KOiPOD Salon (3442 S.E. Belmont Street, 503-231-4141) here in Portland, Oregon. Layla cut my hair in a layered style that highlighted the natural wave of my hair. I love this new romantic wavy hairdo!
After getting my hair done Chris and I headed over to one of our favorite parks in Portland: Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden for some bird watching and some photo taking. We were happy to see that the crocus and daffodils were blooming as well as some of the trees in the park. It was such a gorgeous day, the type of day that gives you hope that Spring is right around the corner. Chris took some photos of me with my new hairstyle and I thought that I would post the one above to share with you my new hairdo as well as my vintage inspired dress.
I recently bought this dress at Target along with another very similar one that is black and purple. This style of dress is cute as well as comfortable and reminds me of some similarly Art Nouveau influenced patterned dresses that I have from the 1970's. I added my own bit of personal flair to the dress with a black satin sash and a Chanel-esque black satin bow and white flower pin.
