Style: Bangtox and flowers

Please ignore my ridiculously short bangs. I went into a hair salon the other day to get a bit of a trim, and walked out with Betty Page-short bangs. No idea how that happened. Also no idea if I can pull it off (I suspect not). Good thing that time will solve this problem in no time (I hope). 

Anyway, I finished Jenny Lawson's book Furiously Happy (I love it so very, VERY much!), and she mentions in it how one of her friends doesn't get Botox, but bangtox, aka bangs to cover up forehead wrinkles. 
That has been my plan all along, and the short bangs are not doing their job properly. I remembered some fashion advice where the stylists recommend to wear big patterns or loud colours or something to direct the eye of the person looking at you away from the trouble area. Hence the flower dress. (I threw the socks on for maximum distraction.) The "business" of the flowers and socks make you not notice my bad bangtox job, right? Awesome. 

Even without the bangs I would have worn the dress though, because it's lovely. The adorable Vancouver blogger Veronika from By The Shore has a closet sale, and I snapped it up for $18! With free shipping! I was thrilled. I really love flower dresses, and this one is no exception. I have a feeling we will be very happy together!





Dress: I bought it from Veronika from By The Shore, it's originally from ModCloth (similar); cardigan: Joe (old; similar); socks: H&M last year (check out these pandafox, and cat socks!); shoes: Old Navy; belt: American Eagle (similar)
