Are you ready for fireworks? I certainly am! I hope our non-US friends and colleagues will permit us an excess of patriotism on this special day, and maybe even enjoy some hot dogs, cold beer, and red, white and blue with us while we watch the skies filling with color and light, and celebrate our nation’s birth.
For my post today I’m showcasing some of the wonderful Lelutka hairstyles I picked up at Hair Fair. (Confession: Yes, I got every single one — and am wearing four of the five.) They come with hairbases (not worn here) to soften the line between hair and forehead. I love them all and am still trying to decide which one to wear tonight. Hope I make up my mind by 9 so I get to the fireworks on time!
Happy 4th, everyone!

This week’s color for the challenge is electric blue, which looked a lot like aqua to me. One of my favorite colors, aqua suggests the opposite of ‘electric’ to me. Aqua is calm and deep, soothing and sensual. It’s a happy color, but tinged with sadness and thus perfect for a day of reflection before the July 4th festivities begin. Tomorrow I’ll fly my stars and stripes and celebrate, but for today, I’m allowing myself to feel just a little blue.
My pixel toes are no doubt virtually tired after all the traipsing around I did at Shoe Fair on Saturday, but there were so many lovely things to see (and buy) that I couldn’t stop until I’d made the complete circuit. I tried to be judicious about my purchases and limit my buying to Shoe Fair exclusives (with a portion of the proceeds going to Soles4Souls), and/or vendors that were new to me. But of course, that resolution didn’t last very long! (My wallet may be in more pain than my feet, but certainly for a good cause.) Today’s outfit is composed exclusively of things I bought at Shoe Fair (well, except for my undies!). I’ve seen the DCNY crochet dress on the feeds (and wanted it) but this color is a shoe fair exclusive and a perfect match for my new Pixel Mode shoes. The Fae Wedge is scrumptious, and it was only the miles and miles of Shoe Fair left to cover that kept me from buying the entire fatpack. (Tya, you know I’ll be back for more!) I had to take a close-up to show you how absolutely fabulously delicious they are!
This year, Shoe Fair leased some booths to non-shoe vendors, just in case anyone got bored by shoe shop after shoe shop after shoe shop. (I know, who could possibly ever be bored by shoes?!?) I’d never before seen the lovely jewelry made by Liliana Barrs of Undefined Lilies, but now that I have — isn’t this necklace lovely? — I’ll definitely be making regular trips to the shop!
