Burgundy Hair

I think this cardigan needs a brooch so I am docking points for being lazy and not pulling one out from my collection.  There seems to be a whole lot of cardigan here which is great for the cold but today reached 75 degrees!  This cardigan was a hard one to find this December, as Target's sweaters sold like hot cakes.  I'm not sure if the stores ordered less product or if people went crazy for the styles.                    

I decided to keep this outtake photo since it shows my new burgundy hair color.  Maybe I got influenced by all of my latest exposure to Monster High dolls, but I started wanting some wild color in my hair.  I learned this weekend that buying products from a beauty supply store is not for me.  The big clue to walk away was when the saleslady asked me if I needed a developer to go with the color I had chosen.  My gut told me that this was not an easy task like my beloved Garnier Nutrisse hair color kit that contains everything you need.  I really felt the buyer's remorse when I was walking to the cash register and she pointed out the mixing bowls and gloves for sale.  I should have just walked away.  In the end, my hair turned out OK but the gray roots were more pink.  Although Supercuts frightens me, I went and had them fix my amateur job. 
Cardigan: Target Merona.
Top: Forever 21 floral from Spring 2013.
Jeans:  Gap Always Skinny in mint from Spring 2013 
Shoes: Target Mossimo Ona flat. 
Monster High Doll: Jinafire Long.  Scaris City of Frights.      


  1. My BF's mom went to a beauty supply store to get hair color - once. She got into pretty much the same situation as you and ended up with some awful color. So bad that she sent her hubby out to the drugstore in the middle of the night to try to buy something/anything that would help "undo" some of the damage! This I should have taken as a clue when I asked her to help me with at-home highlights several years ago - I ended up with tiger stripes! ;o)

    1. I'm surprised that the beauty supply stores are still able to sell these difficult to maneuver hair dyes when I hear stories like this. But I guess there must be some experts who know what they are doing.
      The tiger stripes would come in handy if it was Halloween time!
      Have a great weekend,

  2. Your hair looks fantastic! And I love your cardigan! I just got a black and white striped cardigan from Target that I adore. They have some really cute pieces right now!

    I did purple in my hair a few years ago. It was fun. I have always wanted some pink. But I always bore out.


    1. Thank you! It's kind of fun to have a little color in January. For colors like pink, I have seen clip ons if you want streaks of color for holidays or sporting events. Those are really cute.
      I first spotted this cardigan on Breakfast at Gigi's blog and went searching for it.
      Thank you,
