In the 2nd seen of Stanley Kubrick‘s 1962 version of “Lolita”, we see Humbert Humbert, a divorced British professor of French literature, travel to Ramsdale, New Hampshire, a small town where he will spend the summer before his professorship begins at Beardsley College, Ohio. He searches across the town for a room, and is tempted by widowed, sexually famished mother, Charlotte Haze (Shelley Winters) to stay at her house. In this scene,when we first meet Ms. Haze, I had to stop the film and think to myself,”Had I ever seen anyone wear a turtle neck underneath a dress before?” It wasn’t anything stunning or amazingly original, but for some reason I was inspired by her strange,but cute outfit. Here are four versions of this outfit that I put together via the world wide web.
Both of us, girls have been busy,and we apology to our readers since we have not been updating regularly. Judy has been consumed with her school work at The UW. :S
She is finally heading into the last week of finals, almost clear of the challenging semester! Life has been crammed with exams/tests/quizzes and papers. One after another, without a single break. Thus her wardrobe has suffered…. let’s just say for the last month her clothes have lacked enthusiasm.
Judy went from trendy hipster to….will anyone notice if I wear these jeans or top twice in a week.
For Judy, this is a post about getting her fashion grove back. Purchasing this lovely dress from Pitaya after finishing a Journalism final,was good retail therapy. Instead of dwelling on the impending grade, she focused her anxiety onto what to wear with the new dress to make it Wisconsin winter ready. The material of this dress may seem more suitable for summer, however if she wears a thick brown legging, a pair of boots to keep her feet dry and a cozy waist length cardigan to cover her arms. The end result is a cute winter outfit that will keep Judy warm as she embarks on her daily activities.
This dress has copper studs on it, at first I was taken back by this new developing trend, it remind me of my attempt to be a rocker/punk/glothic in High School. *Shudders* However, when done right, it looks feminine and trendy. It adds just enough edge to any outfit. How would you wear studs? - Judy J
I, Grace, will be returning to school as well in January of 2013, to get my One-Year Technical Diploma in Cosmetology. Prior to enrollment of the Cosmetology program at our local tech college (Madison College), all wait-listed individuals must take an orientation course (Making The Cut) designed to maximize the students understanding of the Barber/Cosmetology Academy. Students are introduced to the industry, receive an orientation to the program competencies, assessed on their preparedness, skill and abilities to ensure an educational match and increase the chance of successful program completion.
Professionalism and presentation are greatly emphasized in the Academy. Dress code is mandatory everyday day of the week in order to be in class, otherwise you’ll be asked to leave and you won’t be able to make up any missed hours. So it is very important that you come dressed appropriately.
- Blue jeans
- Tunic or regular tops over leggings shorter than two-inches above the knee
- Tops exposing arm pits
- Fishnet nylons or stockings
- Exposed feet
- Flip Flops or shoe between your toes
- Tennis shoes
- Pants, skirts or dress limited to no shorter than two inches above the knee.
- Non see through black leggings when a dress is no shorter than 2-inches above the knee.
- Covered feet, closed in shoes, sandals with foot coverings, clean maintains foot wear
- Foot coverings, socks, hose or tights
I bought this dress from Retreads in store credit in exchange for selling them clothes items I no longer wanted. I’m going to test the waters the first day of school to see if my professors would accept this as an appropriate outfit. I thinking the tights are too see through and the length of the dress is too short. I also wonder if they’ll say it’s okay to wear to a button up sweater over any top that has an exposed armpit. As for the sandals, these flatform sandals will be perfect as as long as I wear tights or socks with them.
I think this is a professional looking outfit just as long as I keep the cardigan buttoned up but we’ll see.
Dress: Bought at Retreads but it’s originally from Target, Cardigan: H&M, Tights: Target, Flatform Sandals: Urban Outfitter’s, Necklace: Handmade from a shotgun shell I found and a piece of quartz I bought at Burnie’s Rock Shop.
I’ve been so busy with my part time job and other life events that I haven’t been able to keep up with the site. But now that I was let go for some apparent reason, I have time on my hands, so I made this silly short film. I was going to do a step by step instructions on how to make these cute slippers, but decided it would be kind of boring. So I left it to Martha Stewart,to show you how to actually make the slippers. I on the other hand just want to show you my end results, plural because I made more than one pair. Which compared to Martha’s, they have their imperfections.
My sister will be having a baby sometime in December so I thought these would be a perfect gift.
I promise! Now that I have time,I will keep up with this site. Even though it will be hard to photograph street fashion during Wisconsin’s harsh winters. I take on this challenge of documenting those willing to STILL be fashionable during Madison’s worst weather.
Button Top: Second Hand from my mother (GAP) , Jeans: St.Vinnies (These jeans were white. Since I never knew how to style white jeans, I died them mint green. Plus I didn’t want to spend $60 for mint jeans that I saw at Urban), Glasses: Fake glasses from Urban.
Last Thursday I took the plunge and had my bleached blonde at my new favorite Salon THORPS by the lovely and talented JEN. I hope this gal never leaves, because she is the only one I’ll ever let cut my hair short. This is not a cheap option, getting it your hair done at the salon but it makes all the difference.
As for after care with bleached hair, it’s really important that you try to keep as much moisture in your hair as possible. I do this by using a great product called Moroccan Oil. This leaves my hair feeling soft, shiny and like it did before it was bleached or healthy. I also recommend using a conditioner and some kind of light hair wax or gel to tame the little dry pieces of hair.
