burgundy and black


One of my personal style goals for the season is to dress up a bit more in my day to day life. My style has gotten extremely casual and I'm in need of a change. This became glaringly obvious last Thursday when I popped into the hair salon for a fringe trim and looked so very out of place waiting in a sea of coated denim, perfectly draped blouses, and slick black boots. While it's nice to stand out from the pack, this wasn't one of those life affirming occasions. There is absolutely no need for me to look like I'm about to do improv on a boat at any point in time, especially in said extremely cool SoHo hair salon. Then I spotted these shoes in Vince the following day and have since been debating how functional a pair of calf hair sneakers would be for me and my new style "#goals". Aside from the fact that I walk everywhere and wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them outside in any kind of weather, I think they might dress up quite nicely. Here I paired them with the previously mentioned very cool coated denim pants, a feminine lace top, and a sleek color coordinating handbag with nails and lips to match.

Question: Does anyone else feel seriously uncool at their hair salon or is it just me a New York thing?

  2. LOVE burgundy and black paired together. Such a great color combo. And no, it's not just you. Every time I have what I think is a cute outfit on and I go to the salon I feel like my outfit came out of the trash bin. I don't know what it is about a salon that makes you feel uncool! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. Ooo I love the sneakers. Maybe you could spray them with some kind of protector so you would feel comfortable wearing them outside?

  4. Ha ha. Yes, I used to go to the Red Door Salon to get my hair done and I always felt a little un-chic compared to their regular clientele. Luckily, my stylist left and went out on his own so I just go to his studio now for a cut and color. I think I need to get on the coated denim trend. Thanks for bringing that to my attention since I'm in the burbs where I'm surrounded by Ugg boots and sweatpants #neverchic.
