Day 28

Haircut 100

I got a haircut today! It feels so awesome. I know I’ll miss my long hair but whatever, it will grow back. This cut feels great and I also feel about 12 years younger. I keep joking that with my long hair I looked like the mom from “Six Feet Under.” I just felt like I looked really old, as old as the vintage dress I’m wearing today. It’s all torn up and pretty unwearable but underneath my uniform dress you can’t even tell. It was a gift from Judi Rosen. The boots of course are from ebay and my new favorite accessory: red lips! Well that and my new haircut.

Last few days to donate. Here’s an interview I did with Phoenix House on Fashion, Fundraising and Recovery >

Wow first comment. I loove this, that dress looks really nice, could it be mended? Good that you can still wear it with the uniform though.

You are doing great and i am now following your blog and loving it!

I think this outfit is great. THe boots add in the odd detail that, although it doesn’t match exactly, it still looks good. The blue dress underneath looks great, I’m just nervous that it may look better on it’s own. The fabric of the uniform doesn’t compliment the fabric of the blue dress very well. The bracelets on your wrist also don’t match the dress too well.

Still, points for effort. 😀

Ridiculous “outfit” — makes no sense — not creative, a waste of time pulling up this site for most of the month.

@Ann: If you don’t like it, don’t look…. Too bad you feel the need to slam rather than encourage efforts.

Somebody’s Mama tagged this I think you are tired of this challenge.

Best accessories: new haircut and red lips. You don’t really need anything else to accessorize if you are rocking those.

I’m gonna miss your style when the month is over, Lesley!

I’m SO lovin’ the cool/frumpy vintage dress with motorcycle boots! That is one of my own signature looks so it’s only natural that I love that you’re rockin’ it!! Great haircut and yes, definitely stick with the red lipstick. You’re inspired me to take out mine and give it another go! 🙂

Great outfit. The long hair suietd you really well, so brave move chopping off the hair. I think chopping it off a couple more inches + maybe some bangs would suit you even better.

your hair cut is super nice, the red lips too, and your face just too cute. i’ve liked a lot of your out fits, but this is like annie goes hole but not in a good way.

Love the new hairecut! I did the same some time ago and never went back; just kept going shorter and shorter! @All who are not satisfied: I think we must acknowledge that Les had had the most difficult dress to work with so far; I mean, you cannot wear it opened or closed, longer or shorter, and you cannot wear anything on top of it without hiding the most interesting part. You did a great job, Lesley! I will donate.

Cindy tagged this not my cup of tea

Uuh what were you thinking, dear? Your new haricut is not flattering. Maybe a short bob? And I don’t know if anybody else noticed this: you can’t take a good picture at all, it was really not enjoyable to visit this site this month, but I hope you learned something and raised a little money for your good cause. So good luck for your next project.

You look lovely with your new hair cut -it ads a stylish edge to your look – I love your take on fashion, unfussy, ready-to-go…I loved you from the start at then it I thought you weren’t investing your 100% in the project and then you took it on and you came back with different ways of doing LBD, always fun, always , arty, always unfussy..I am going to miss seeing you Lesly Arfin

@Sambre, you pose a good point! from what i saw in the other two examples, the dresses were rather versatile. It’s really a great looking dress, and due to the circumstances I still think Lesley did a fantastic job with her choice of outfits.

That dress is lovely, but with the black dress it just doesn’t make sense. I have a feeling you’re looking forward to not wearing the uniform anymore.
