Irresistible Me.

Until I was thirty I had long blonde hair. It was part of my identity. And then one day I needed a change and had it chopped into pixie by Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi. The great thing about being a hair model is that you never know who is going to do your hair. You can just as easily be serviced by a student or a celebrity stylist - for free or a nominal fee. I'll never forget it was him because at his station he had a Edward Scissorhands figure. I grew it out and kept it long until about 40 and then I started cutting again. When Irresistible Me offered me a set of hair extensions I jumped at the chance to try long hair again. Honestly I didn't realize how much I miss my hair until I edited these photos.




So yeah, this dress is kinda amazing. I spotted it on the H&M sale rack for $30 from $99 and knew it was coming to Florida with me. It's a part of their Studio Collection line which I'm a big fan of. Especially on sale. In full disclosure it's a size 8 and super sheer. It has a slip, but it ends just past my behind. I wish it was longer because it oddly ends at my ankles. As long as I was going full drama, I grabbed my oversize House of Harlow sunglasses ($0.01!) and my $90 Jimmy Choo sample sale sandals. I took a gold purse with me but it didn't match at all so I pulled the strap of my Chanel and wore it as a clutch.



From head to toe:
  • Sunglasses: House of Harlow, Nordstrom Rack, $0.01
  • Necklace: AV Max, sample sale, $10
  • Dress: H&M Studio Collection, $30 (RV $99)
  • Bag: Chanel, Neiman Marcus, 75% off retail
  • Rings: Eddie Borgo, sample sale, $5
  • Sandals: Jimmy Choo, sample sale, $90 (RV $595)
Linking a few other romantic maxi dresses should you want to steal my style:








Ava wanted to see what it would be like to be a blonde too :)




This is what the Irresistible Me Silky Touch set comes with. I selected #28 silky honey blonde, 200g and 14 inches. This was the shortest set they offer for Silky Touch - I honestly would a preferred a shorter set but this is human hair and can be cut, heat treated and colored just as you do with your own hair. These really are great extensions for short hair and my set retails for $169. As you can see, I had a hard time blending because my last short hair cut was over layered - plus my hair is pretty fine and thinning on top. Most of my top hair fell out after I had my kids. It's one of those weird hormonal things that they don't tell you about having babies. Thank goodness some of it grew back but for a while I had a bald spot. Honestly I'd love to try a full wig at some point (just for fun) because my hair is thicker and has more volume from my ear-line and down - it's the top that needs more help than the bottom.

I'd say it took several tries to get them in for these pictures but once you get the hang of it it's easy enough to snap right in - even for a novice like myself. I would also love to have a pro put these in just to see what else I can do with them. They actually blend even better with Ella's hair so I plan on trying them on her as well.





Mind you I've since cut my hair again. I didn't mean to but I wanted my lob back and the stylist didn't cut enough of an angle so I thought it would be okay to go shorter to get the shape I wanted. So now I'm super short again but hopeful it will grow quickly because I'm anxious to get it to my collarbone - and from there maybe bra length again. We'll see. For now I have my Irresistible Me extensions should I need to switch things up.

On the shopping front, run to Zara now. Like right now. Their sale just had another markdown today and everything is now $19.99 or less in the woman's sale area. I've been stalking their website daily to try and catch a replenishment and I've gotten lucky a few times! Hint - when you find something on sale put it in your cart and check out immediately. Don't wait or you'll lose it! Don't worry, I'll be sharing my Zara haul and Clear the Rack finds soon!

Century 21 got another markdown this week but I'm so over their not really 90% off sale. I grabbed a $350 Tommy sports jacket for my husband for $24 and a $110 Ted Baker shirt for $11 but that was it. Nothing for me.

As for sample sales, I've been taking a break because the season doesn't really heat up again until May/June. There are a few this week and next but nothing worth mentioning. If anything pops up I'll be sure to add it to my Insta-stories on LeHoarder or my @shoppinggalscloset account - where I share more deals and giveaways.

I also wanted to share how excited I am for Ella - she just won a custom gown on Instagram from Pink Label NY. Not sure what she is gonna do with a fancy gown but she can always wear it to her Bat Mitzvah in 2 years. She's so skinny that I'm sure it won't be a problem LOL.

Have a great weekend!

XO

  3. Wow! I've been letting my hair grow because I miss my long hair of my twenties but now I'm thinking I should try extensions. I had no idea how wonderful they could be. Thank you so much for this. Both you and your daughter are so glamorous!

  5. I loved hearing about these extensions. I'd love to chop more off but I'm afraid I will instantly wish I had a bit more length back as my hair has always been longer than my shoulders! That's a great option to help me be more bold! I love this dress! The patter, color, and cut look so stunning on you! Congrats to your daughter! I know she much be so so excited to get it in! I know at her age I would have been through the roof!

  7. Seriously in love with your long hair and actually hair extensions is a great way for you to quickly change your look completely within minutes. I don't think I'd look as good as you in long hair though, haha! :) As for the Zara sale... tell me about it! So much to buy!!
    And aww, I hope Ella will enjoy her gown! :)

  8. You look so great short hair or long hair. I didn't even know that it was extensions, as they blended in so well with your hair. Your dress is beautiful and I still can't get over how do you find all these items such as steal price!

    1. They actually don't blend that well which is why I didn't share any closeups LOL. And thanks - bargain hunting is one of many talents :)

  9. Trying out longer hair seems like so much fun! Although I personally like you with your shorter hair better, the longer look really suits you boho dress so well, and it's always nice to mix things up a bit! Gorgeous look.

    1. The super long hair feels very young to me so I totally agree. At this point I need to get it to my collarbone. My hair feels cute when it's short but I want to get back to pretty (which is longer for me...)

  12. You and Ava look both stunning as a blonde! I love Irresistible Me extensions. I have some I'm jet black. I pull them out when I want to look ultra glam for the day!

    1. I thought so too - I thought she was a cute brunette but her coloring can totally go blonde as well.

  13. Longer hair really suits you here and you did a great job blending in the extensions, waves/curls always make blending them so much easier! I'm really loving the pattern of your maxi dress and the longer sleeves!

    1. Thanks - I wish I had my flatiron with me when I did this to blend it a little better but it worked out OK. And yes - the drama of the sleeves makes the dress!

  14. The hair extension looked really natural on you, I wouldn't be able to tell had you not mentioned it. I completely agree that no one tells women how much hair they'd lose after having kids...I was afraid to shower because every time I wash my hair, they would come out by the handful. They grew back eventually but still, it was a nightmare to deal with it. Both you and your girl look very darling.

    1. Thanks - for so long I had hair like this that it was nice to have it back for a day. And right? I literally had bald spots. Motherhood is hard!

  15. I've never tried hair extensions before, but yours look amazing. I had to cut my hair recently because it was so damaged, so now I'm considering it that I see your beautiful hair.

  16. I love how you layered that coat and contrasted neutrals with green sneakers! That's one of the things I miss most about NY. I love walking around and exploring.

  17. Wait I got confuse. how old are you?! you look like you're 22! and I think I love the pixie hair on you the most. I think the decision on cutting it short was the best decision. Atleast theres hair extensions in case you miss your long hair! all in all. super stunning and love the score on the dress!
