I've noted multiple times my love of Amy Winehouse and Fred Perry. For years I've lusted after the FP x AW collections, and now that I'm on the East Coast, the NYC Fred Perry and FP Surplus are only a short train ride away. Back in December I picked up three pieces from past collections — this leopard polo being one of them. It's easily the most I've ever paid for a piece of clothing, but it is certainly coveted now. It has an ultra-subtle leopard print and white laurel wreath. Epic.
I'm sort of obsessed with doing this lately. Something about it is perfectly 90s and I just can't get enough (reminds me of those crazy horn-bun things that Scary Spice had). We've all been doing the sock bun for a while now, and this is the exact same concept, just half the size!
I picked up my small 1.5" bun rings at Urban Outfitters (They were maybe $6 for two?), but they're not currently online. You can find them at a variety of online stores, including eBay.
And yes, I call 'em Baby Bunz... with a 'z.'

I unpacked some goodies this weekend — including the last bit of my clothing. I came across this Pleasure Doing Business banded skirt that I hadn't seen in ages. Normally I'm not into zipper details, but this has a diagonal zip across the front. Not bad, really.
And I unpacked my camera remote, so I had to take advantage of the nice natural lighting in my house.

Busy, busy, busy...
- The Orlando airport on a layover home from SXSW.
- And of course seeing The Boyfriend was worth all the waiting!
- I did some retail therapy on Thursday after a pretty rough day.
- Unicorn hair, yes.
- Finally hung some vintage maps.
- Kingsley looking regal per normal.
- Cleaning and decorating the house.
- I saw How To Dress Well on Saturday and picked up a new record. Pink vinyl!

Oh boy, my purple faded fast. After a week in the sun at SXSW (more on that in a later post) and a couple of washes, I was nearly blonde. I have been wanting to try the Water Color Hydrating Hair Color Mask since Urban started carrying it and bought the blue and pink. After shampooing my hair, I put in each color for about a minute and rinsed it out. The result was this unicorn-esque gradient — and I dig it.
I'm in total denial about the lack of spring weather. After spending a week in the Austin/LA sun (not to mention a little sunburn), it was no fun stepping off the plane into snow. Soon, though, I hope.

Well, things change.
After having my half-and-half tones for nearly two years, I decided to retire my signature hair and move onto something else. It was bittersweet, yes, but I can't express how excited I am over my multi-toned lilac and purple hair. The best part? It's going to fade into a nice neutral purple (a la Kelly Osborne). Mae over at American Mortals did a stellar job and she patiently worked on my hair for six hours yesterday. Whew.

If you do happen to be in Austin this week and would like to say hey, I'll be at the #UOBacklot Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I'm flying out to LA for a movie premier on Thursday (more on that later), so I'll be bouncing around all over the place.
Rollover the image for outfit details!

I happened upon Best Made Company this weekend when I noticed The Boyfriend's "Be Optimistic" patch on his jacket. Immediately I checked out their Instagram and fell for their aesthetic. When I got home, I checked their online store and, needless to say, wanted to put everything in my cart for purchase. Note to self: Self restraint can be a virtue.

I can't believe it's March already...
- Totally feeling this lilac hair.
- Dump Truck being a total cutie at the office.
- Is winter over yet? As much as I love layers, I'm ready for spring.
- The Boyfriend (yep, that just happened, just called him "The Boyfriend") brought my tulips this week when he heard I wasn't feeling 100%.
- Finally wore this thrift J. Crew skirt that I love.
- More paint by numbers to add to my collection.
- Had some Seaworth cold brew coffee at work. Into it.
- Crazy DIY nails from this weekend and, yes, a class ring.
- Headed so Sunday brunch with The Boyfriend. This Best Made patch sums him up pretty well.
