Outfit of the Day: The Sound of Music - Garnerstyle

Outfit of the Day: The Sound of Music

Maybe I'm into movies these days.  I seem to find inspiration from some of my favorite movies of all time.  I evoked my inner milk maid (inspired from The Sound of Music) for this look.  I was invited to a fashion show that was to help raise money for Hugging Hearts an non-for-profit organization geared to educate and promote awareness of HIV AIDS and other STDS to the age group 12 -18 for those whom has either been infected, affected or in risk of being infected by the disease.  As I do love to dress up, I thought this would be a great time to try out my new silk dress from JIBRI while trying a new updo...all while supporting a great cause.  This hair style was super easy.  I just parted my hair into two sides, braided each side and pinned them in place. I added my Jessica Simpson bangs to bring the look together.  

Outfit Logistics

Dress - JIBRI $240
Shoes - ALDO $80
Necklace - Liz Claiborne (super old)
I thought between the dress and the braids I should keep it simple. 

I think next time I try this hairstyle, I will try to do the style a little messier like Zoe Saldana & Sienna Miller below.  Their braids are so pretty.

Braided hairstyles are very on-trend for this year.  When my fiance saw this hairstyle I can't say that he liked it.  I think after seeing me dressed the hairstyle grew on him.  I actually questioned whether the hairstyle was for me, but I really liked it after I stared at myself for about 30 minutes.  It also was great way to keep my hair nice and neat.  Sometimes trends can be 'iffy' on whether they can work for you or not.   What other 'iffy' trends do you want to try this year, but maybe are a little scared to try?

  11. WHATHAWORLD!!!! WHO knew you could get some dang Jessica Simpson already braided hair! And I'm kicking myself because I don't know how to braid!

    You think they got nappy braided hair for me?

    I have learned something new today, that is so cute and I love the outfit!

  12. Cool! I also really like to listen to music that lifts my spirits at the beginning of the day. I usually listen to music on YouTube and just recently I found a great solution for creating music playlists from YouTube. I started using YouTube Mp3 Converter to quickly get high-quality mp3 versions of funny songs from YouTube. So I create separate playlists of 10 songs and listen in order, which is very invigorating in the morning.

  13. If you're an ambitious music creator with enough background in writing, mixing, and composing, as well as talent and technical skills, you will surely find ways to promote your music, especially online! While I'm not a music producer in any way, I've talked to many of them who all agree producing music or art like films or animation is a tough job in a competitive market. Still, as long as you take it as a full-time job and you think you have a good product, promoting your art is not something you should worry most about.
