Long Permed Hair

Top: Fossil | Skirt: Target | Belt: Forever 21 | Flats: Piperlime | Hairclip: Missoni for Target | Necklace: Emerg(in) Store

Floral flats are a MUST HAVE this season.  I probably wore mine every other day for the past few weeks, no joke.  It’s the perfect little thing to spruce up a rather plain outfit or just to get some patterns in your wardrobe.  I totally want to get these, these, and these as well, but I’ll hold myself back for now I suppose.  And my new favorite top?  You are looking at it, it’s lace and mint, perfection.

  Oh by the way, I totally got a hair cut last week but have so many outfit pictures taken from awhile ago that I can’t show you my new hairs yet.  My bangs were getting way long and the ends of my hair were split, dying, and fried.  But I actually really liked my long wavy hair, I got my perm December 2010 in Koreatown of Los Angeles and it’s lasted this long!  It was nice though because permed hair meant I could jump out of the shower and let my hair air dry and I did not have to do a thing to it.  I also never brushed my hair, ever.  It wasn’t until I started brushing my hair recently that I realized how much hair I was losing post partum.  Clumps, I tell you, EVERY TIME I brush or run my fingers through my hair, at least 15 strands of hair come out.  You don’t even want to see the shower floor.  How come no one warned me about this part of being a Mommy?

    I LOVE your lace mint top! And it’s so perfect against your hot pink skirt! I remember the post-partum fall-out, it was scary. Things no one tells you, hey?

    You look lovely and I love the floral flats!
    Hair loss is such a bummer huh? 15 strands is nothing. I was losing like 50 at a time, like each time I would touch my hair. I even had bald patches near the front that took FOREVER to fill in. Hang in there mama, it gets better!

    I like the colour combo of the skirt and top. Very pretty and spring like. I think perms are pretty fabulous. They have definitely come a long way since the 80’s. Haha. Yours is still looking great.

    I’ve always wanted to try a perm but I already have naturally wavy hair and I have a bad feeling it would FREAK OUT.

    Cute skirt! I can’t believe how much hair I lose daily. (My baby is 7 months). I don’t remember losing this much hair with my first baby but this one has been rough. I don’t know how I have any hair left!!!



  21. May 7, 2012 / 3:04 pm

    That is my favorite top on you. I can’t wait to see your new hair cut.

  22. May 7, 2012 / 5:05 pm

    Cute skirt and shoes! Floral flats are a fun way to add the trend this season. I picked up a pair of peep toe floral flats and have had so much fun with them.

  23. May 7, 2012 / 5:50 pm

    Gorgeous color combo Sandy!

  24. May 7, 2012 / 7:10 pm

    You have been rocking so many pretty colors lately! I love this pretty combo, and how the shoes tie everything together. I need a pair!

  25. May 8, 2012 / 12:03 am

    I know. I already lose what seems to be quite a bit of hair on the bathroom floor, but after each baby my husband said, “Seriously, how do you have any hair on your head, look at all this!” (pointing to the floor)

  26. May 8, 2012 / 8:51 am

    I love florals & this outfit! You make hot pink & mint look great together! I can’t wait to see your haircut.

  27. May 8, 2012 / 1:44 pm

    Oh no! So sorry to hear of the hairloss, my bff at work warned me about the situation. She already has fine hair and when I saw how thin her hair was getting, I was scared. It was like she had a buzz cut underneath the top part of her hair. Can’t wait to see your new hairstyle!

  28. May 8, 2012 / 3:14 pm

    You look so pretty!! And I love your top

  29. May 9, 2012 / 10:54 pm

    That shirt is amazing!! Oh my gosh I’m completely obsessed. As is that skirt and those shoes. Seriously can we please trade outfits right now?

    Love that bright coral on you!

    Generally, hair loss in patches signifies alopecia areata. Alopecia areata typically presents with sudden hair loss causing patches to appear on the scalp or other areas of the body. If left untreated, or if the disease does not respond to treatment, complete baldness can result in the affected area, which is referred to as alopecia totalis. When the entire body suffers from complete hair loss, it is referred to as alopecia universalis. It is similar to the effects that occur with chemotherapy.;*
