Friday Roundup: May 21

Happy Friday, all! I thought I would post a few bookmarks/favorites I’ve collected around the web, things that inspired me lately, and other links I think you’ll love.

Be sure to check out my Beautiful Stranger contest entry, and if you can, leave a comment describing what/how this blog inspires you! Here’s the contest entry.

This editorial featuring model Lydia Hearst, shot by Elias Wessel for Vixen Magazine Spring 2010, completely ties in with my fun haircolor adventure of the past week! (Update: I now have one tiny, subtle pink strand, and one tiny, subtle amethyst/heather strand near my face. They’re both Manic Panic and thus semi-permanent, and it turned out so well, that I want more! Uh-oh.)

This romper has one of the coolest fabric patterns I’ve ever seen. It’s like tye-dye had a baby with Ikat.

It’s no secret I’ve been coveting any form of the Jeffrey Campbell Tick bootie (JC knows I pretty much love ALL of his shoes). Late last night I noticed that quietly, subtly, SB added a version of the Tick I’d never seen before–nude! I knew they carried the all black version without tacks (which I like because apparently the tacks have been a bit adventuresome and pop off at times), but when I saw it in the season’s hottest shade and envisioned how leg-lengthening it would be in shorts, a romper, a skirt, or a pair of long jeans even in Fall, I had to scoop up a pair. Wednesday cannot get here fast enough.

(P.S. JC – feel free to consult me for an even-more-fabulous version of the Tick that I have dreamed up. And yes, there is a little bit of pink involved.)

This hairspray is most assuredly the softest, most manageable (yet strong hold) hairspray ever invented: L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray

Lastly, I need your help finding a goldtone curb-chain link bracelet. I wanted this one from J. Crew but it sold out on me in the color I wanted (multi? gold? I forget). This one by Rachel Rachel Roy is super cute and am considering it as well, especially since her 30% off friends & family sale is going on right now. I’m looking for heavy and thick, to match a gold watch gifted to me. Help!!
