Today is the 14th day of my I Heart Shoes challenge! I'm loving how these pink pumps pop against the purple maxi dress!

When: Thursday September 15, 2011

Maxi dress: Forever 21 (U.S.A.)
Black blazer: ? (Panama)
Black Nine West belt: TJ Maxx (U.S.A.)
Pink pumps: Christian Siriano for Payless (Panama)
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Maxx (U.S.A.)
Earrings: Borrowed from my mom

Work + Laid back dinner and DVD date night with my boyfriend.

I almost managed to pull this hairdo perfectly, but not quite. The problem is that having lots and lots of layers in your hair makes ALL hairstyles messy and untamed. But you know what? I kind of like how it looks messy and untamed... it makes the ponytail sexier and more effortless.

If you want to give this hairstyle a try, just click HERE. Also, if you do try it, feel free to send me a pic of your hairdo-attempt at thejoyoffashion (at) hotmail (dot) com. I would love to see it!
