First off, I was overwhelmed by the responses to my new hair! Wow – you guys made my week with your sweet, sweet comments. I was extremely nervous before the chop began, but I decided to (1) trust my hairdresser and (2) remember that hair always grows back. I’m so glad you like the results! It’s very light, and perfect for summer. I think I’ll keep it! πŸ˜‰

Onto another subject: Madewell’s Fall 2011 Sneak Preview Lookbook. I got an email this morning alerting me to the Fall collection. There were some looks I loved, and others I didn’t. Madewell has been one of my more recent favorite stores. It’s a pricey place, but I’ve noticed that in-store sales are much, MUCH better than what is offered online.

Here are a few looks I wasn’t feeling:

Plaid shirt stuffed under dress with man boots sans socks? Umm, NO.

Not everything looks better tied up in a red bow.  
Grandpa chic. 
Cute sweater, but those pants? Heck no.  
Here are some looks I really loved: 
That skirt will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

This reminds me of Claire Danes circa My So-Called life, but better. LOVE!

Love everything about this. 
Anyone else excitedly anticipating Fall? Ooooh, I can’t wait!
