This is She's Still Got It reader Amy, who sent me a picture of herself in a side chignon.
First of all, Amy would look good even if her head were shaved bald. So she has an unfair advantage, if you ask me.
But does she not look completely fabulous in this 'do?!
I wore a side chignon the other day, too, andI LOVED it. I think it might become a permanent hairstyle option for me, particularly in the summertime when I just want my hair up and off my neck. It's so dang cinchy!
Now check out these other recently-discussed looks on real-life women...
Beloved blogger Slynnro sent me a link to this photo in defense of her romper purchase and I have to admit, girlfriend looks good. So I suppose certain ones of you may be exempt from my no rompers rule, particularly if you're a leggy stick like Ms. Slynnro.
To be honest, I suspect Slynnro looks good in just about anything. Much like Amy. Hmm....
Reader Amber sent this late-breaking photo of an employee at her spa, rocking a romper. Again -- young, long legged, tan ... Hey, if you can pull it off, PROPS TO YOU.
And finally, I couldn't end this post without gloating over my recent Kmart purchases. I bought this dress and this dress on sale with an additional 20% off, so they were around $25 each, and guess what?
They are, like, two of my favorite dresses ever!
I forgot to get a picture of myself in one, but here's the other ... drumroll please ....
This dress is so cute, I can't stand it. And everywhere I went in it, I got compliments. Love, love, love. It's by Spense, and several of Kmart's Spense dresses have the same retro feel -- I'm already itching to order more.
So there you have it! I'd love to see photos of your fashion finds. Join the She's Still Got It Flickr group and post a photo here, or just e-mail your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
