Turning Heads #Linkup-Rich Green Anthro Sweater+ Hair Affair



Hello Ladies!

First, let’s talk hair. I think we all love our hair to suit our coloring, personality, style . Last week, for Turning heads Tuesday, it was a more red- darker copper. When my stylist, who is awesome, did my hair, as to eliminate my greys, more copper was added to my red hair. I am used to my golden -red or gold copper look, and thought it was too dark for me.

So, what is great, is that my stylist lives 15 minutes down the street and comes to my house to do my hair.  I emailed her about my concerns, and she came over to fix the color and make it more “me”. My hair has golden tones to it with red, and needed that back in my hair. Toning down the copper and adding gold was not a problem, and was more my natural hair color. Going all grey isn’t an option for me, as my fair skin tone and long hair would just leave me looking like I am participating in Halloween year round! My PT has beautiful curly grey/silver hair, mom has gone white, but as I said, it would not suit me. So, when the grey were starting to really come in, I  wanted to get back to my golden red.  I have added a heat protectant spray  by Loreal ( amazing!) and Argon Oil to keep my hair conditioned as I use a dryer and curler so it can get dry. But back to my original “color happiness”. I am in the shade here, so the gold really stands out in the sun.

Anyhow, much happier, and I feel like the ole Jess again. I know many of you probably have had some experiences. Now, on to my outfit. You all know, or I think you do, I do 98% of my shopping on-line. I also do alot of my shopping on Zara, ASOS, but as of late, on Poshmark. Poshmark is a site for new or lightly worn items and at a fraction of the cost. I have the time to search, and one of my favorite stores is Anthropologie, but I am just not willing to pay $150 for a sweater! SO… this is from Anthropologie via Poshmark. What I love about this is not only the rich green color but all of the details in the sweater. The ruffles, the ties on the side, the bow and cut of the back of the sweater, all details that really make it interesting for me.

I have so many ideas on how I will style this throughout the winter, but today I wanted to pair it with my faux black leather mini by Ann Taylor, and another pair of OTK BOOTS this time suede,  from Born. I am hoping to get another color from Santa this year… if I am good.:-) I would love a suede skirt or dress, but I am mostly finding ones that look like the length and size of a napkin, or ones that run $300+. So, OTK boots in suede, it is!

    Absolutely, positively, STUNNING, head to toe! I need to track down that sweater from Anthro!

    THANK YOU for explaining your incredible hair color… I actually wanted to write and ask if you colored and how. I’m 40 and my once bright red has faded over the past decade. I’m not sure when or IF I should start coloring it! I have no idea what Redheads are supposed to do since we can’t match our natural colors with a bottle. But I see your vibrant red every week and inspires me to start doing something to bring back that pizzazz!

      Hi Ginger!
      I am 47_ so the greys have been coming in! First, thank you for the lovely comment on my outfit. I love the details on Anthro clothes.n
      Typically, she has to add some gold and a small amount of copper to match my natural hair color. Go for it, as u already have beautiful long hair!

      Hi Gingr
      First, thank you for such a lovely complement. Anthro has some great clothes,lots of great details.

      My natural is a ginger red, but I am now 47 and have gotten more greys over the years and fading too. My stylist uses copper to amp up my natural color and also adds gold for the ginger. You have beautiful long hair, I say go for it!

    Jess, I am glad your hair is restored to YOUR color! Love the seater it is gorgeous, and I adore it paired with the quilted skirt and OTK boots, fabulous! I have also done well on Poshmark, but I don’t shop there often ( so many crick and mortar stores near me). You look wonderful in this treasure . I am glad you are inspiring others to shop this way.

      Hi Elle! Will stop by today! Thinking of u. I find great things at PM , like thrift shopping for me, since I shop almost all online. I could see certainly why you shop where you are and like Michaels Consignment!/Glad you love the look, yes happy with my hair again ??

      Hi Elle!!
      Thank you, yes I am more pleased. At 47, I am seeing more greys pop up with my natural color fading. But I will stay a ginger. She is great, and it is so much nicer having her come to my house to cut and color my and hubbys hair. She added more of my natural gold in after last week’s color. I am happy again! I can see why you shop at Michael’s Consignment, and of course you shop in NY! 🙂 PM has been great for some buys Have a great week! xx

    It’s a good shade of green to match your hair, and a very pretty sweater. I know what you mean about haircolour that doesn’t feel right, I had a few mishaps when I experiented with hair colour when I was much younger. These days I’m very low-maintenance, keep it natural and spend my energy trying to control the curls instead (that’s a losing battle, too)

And you styled it perfectly. The colors and fabrics really compliment one another. Thanks for more vintage inspiration. (Fur & Pin are yummy!) Hope you are having a fabulous week dear. xo

        Hi Deb! Thank you regarding my hair. No secret 🙂 I have red hair but I was getting a fair amount of greys and fading, at the age of 47.. those greys are going to come at some point. But my natural red needed some attending, Glad you like the look!! I love vintage pins , i have a few on my list for the holidays… You too my friend! xx
