Fashion Over Reason: Interlaced

Interlaced

I've been a fervent advocate of braids for years and years and years. Before i cut off my all of my hair last year (it almost reached the small of my back), my go-to 'do was a french braid. Side braid, full braid, half braid, messy braid, tight braid, you name it. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but i'm actually quite skilled at braiding my own tresses and i always received buckets of compliments about my great braids. Now that my locks are shorter (and i'm actually in dire need of a snip), it's harder for them to all remain in one braid - not to mention that my hair is so fine and soft that lose strands always escape - but i love seeing my favorite mane style in this spring's best magazines and on the most gorgeous models.

I can completely relate.. my hair is so thin/fine too its hard to hold braids (or curls for that matter!!! dont even get me started on that!) and growing up i was never able to braid my own hair that well.. I always got my younger sister to do it for me.. but it definitely is a good skill to have :).. I do like the messy look though.. its kind of sexier.. And this editorial is PERFECT in describing so many braids.. its so pretty and I love how they really focused on the hair..and thank you for sharing this because I haven't seen it yet!!

Are you watching the oscars?? I loved Charlize Theron's dress (Even though some people are saying they didn't like it ..) And also Rachel McAdams is STUNNING!!

I love this editorial sooooo much too! i actually just posted one of the shots on stardust this morning-- we're so in sync, it's crazy!! lol!


i'd LOVE to see your hair as long as it was + braided! Braids are the best- even though they're so hot this season i think they're really timeless.

how are you, lady :) feels like we haven't "spoken" in forever lol! what a week it's been for me. the place is really coming together though :) xx
