Great hair, great fit

Photo credit: Thrift & Shout

This is Lindsay who has a great blog called Thrift and Shout. The fact that she finds most of her items at goodwill is unreal, but she has a great eye for stylish items that suit her.

Why is She So Cute?
  • Amazing hair - Lindsay has a great hairstyle that is polished and she obviously put a lot of thought into. It is very flattering to her face shape, gives her a signature look, and is stylish without being overly trendy. I am personally guilty of waiting too long between haircuts, and always have a week or so where I wonder why I don't feel as pretty before I remember that it's time to hit the salon. It makes an enormous difference and is worth the money. Even the cutest outfit will look blah with blah hair.
  • Fit - These pieces fit her beautifully. Nothing is pulling, and nothing is sloppy. 
  • Natural waist - I love that she has positioned this pencil skirt so it fits at her natural waist, just under her rib cage. It was out of fashion for a while, with everything needing to be 'low-rise', but I'm glad it's back. It's the smallest part of the torso for most women, and adding a horizontal line here accentuates that. You could get a similar effect with a full or A-line skirt, if a fitted pencil isn't your thing.
  • Sense of adventure - The color pairing, the leopard, the statement necklace - it completely works, but you need to be bold enough to try it. Have some fun, and don't be afraid of trying something that might stand out.
