The Dark Side

Forever 21 Tribal Print Maxi Dress

No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you and I didn't apply a filter on these photos. I crossed over to the dark side with my hair color. I went in on Wednesday and showed my girl a few pictures I had pinned on Pinterest. I was going for a "bronde" look. You know, blonde + brown. Well, folks, my crown came out "bronze" not "bronde". YIKES! I am going back today and praying that she can put something on it to tone down the red, bronze, brass, whatever you want to call it.  It's so weird that the color took how I wanted it on the rest of my hair, but for some reason the top portion thought it would play a sick hair joke on me. This is reason #247 why I am always scared to do something different to my hair. At least it's just color we are dealing with and not a bad haircut. Right?

Looking on the bright side of things, I got my Forever 21 haul delivered to my doorstep this week. I mentioned on Facebook that they were running a 30% EVERYTHING sale last week. (BTW, if you haven't liked my Facebook page yet, you might want to hop over. I post daily steals, sales and seasonal finds that I don't share on my blog.) Anyway, I got sucked in, as usual, and grabbed a handful of fall and winter pieces including this maxi dress I am wearing today. Most of the other items are for when the weather cools down, but I didn't want to take the chance of missing out if I waited. 

Take a peek at what I finally decided on after spending waaaaaay too much time perusing online. I think my favorite is the faux leather shearling jacket. I tried to stick with the basics and choose items that I can remix over the next several months.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We are headed to Texas State's homecoming game on Saturday. I haven't been back to see my Bobcats play in a few years....which was actually one of the first times I really ever "watched" an entire game. Sad, but true story. Priorities were a little different back in the day. 

P.S. SALE ALERT!! In case you didn't here, several styles of Hunter Boots are on sale for 20% off at Nordstrom! I am not sure how long this will last. I grabbed the black matte pair, but the gloss finish are included in the sale too!

That dress is stunning and so sorry for your hair. That's why I try not to do any changes as well. Too risky. Have a great weekend.

I think the deeper shade looks great on you, but I know how it feels when it doesn't come out the way you want so hopefully you will love it when they change it. Love the boho vibe of your dress, F21 has the best deals!!

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Forever 21 and then the sale came about. That always happens to me. Oh well, their prices are still good sale or no sale. You made some great choices and I really like that hair color. It suits you.

I think your hair looks good, love the deeper shade and bronze-ish color. Very fall!

I do know what it's like when it doesn't turn out how you want it to, so I'm sorry about that! So if you're not happy with it I hope some toner will do you right!

This has totally happened to me before...I think that is when I knew it was finally time to leave my hairdresser (it had been a long time coming lol) The overall color looks really pretty though!

I actually love your hair!! And that dress! Have fun at the game this weekend!

There's a product at Sally's Beauty Supply called GET THE RED OUT! That will take brassy/bronzy/red tones out of your hair. Do you use the purple shampoo (if you don't it's a MUST for blondes) it will work as well :)

If it makes you feel any better I tried to do the same thing to my hair recently and had to go back and have it fixed too. I like it better, but I'm still getting used to it. And I'm totally with you on THAT being 1 of the thousands of reasons why I always get the same thing done time after time! I do like the darker color though! :) Have a good one!

Oh no!! The same exact thing happened to me when I tried to do a subtle ombre at the beginning of the year - my roots picked up way too much warmth and I hated it so much! Yours, however, looks good. Maybe its the photos, but I can't even tell! But still, I can understand how it feels so I hope you're able to get it to a place where you're happy with it soon!

Janna Renee said...

That is why I don't color my hair at all. I know I would mess it up never get back to my natural color. I think it looks cool from the pictures, so I'm sur eit won't take much to fix it!
