I’ve been stalking this dress for months. Having had such luck with the regular Land’s End shirt dresses, I was eager to give this style a shot. But the $80 price point seemed a bit high, so I waited. And waited. And once it got down to $29.99 I jumped. And I am tempted to wear this dress every day for the rest of my life. Or, at least, until the second one in the red plaid colorway arrives at my doorstep.
So my hair, right? I’ve had really good luck doing $15 walk-in haircuts for YEARS, but recently things started to go downhill. When it got chopped shorter than expected in October, I actually grew to love that style … but when I went in to get a trim a month or so later, a different stylist did something odd and I ended up with a weird two-level cut. I lived with it for a while, then went in Monday to try to get that fixed, and yet another stylist made it worse. So today I plunked down at a fancy salon for the first time in ages. And yes, it was worth it. It’s still a bit damp here, but I can tell it’s going to be worlds better. WORLDS.
I feel like someone once asked for stylist recommendations. I can give one now! Richard at Salon Rouge. He saved me.
One last quick note, since I seem to be feeling verbose today: A commenter asked if the past few outfits have been shot inside and Photoshopped onto an outdoor background. Promise no! It’s just barely light when I get home from work these days, and I’m sick to death of posing in the entryway … but we’re shooting in the last rays of the sunset with flash. So things look a little funky.
With an afternoon hair appointment today, I got home early and we have better light. So things look normaler. Just, ya know, FYI.
