A Smidge of Scarlet.

This is what I wore to hit a matinee of True Grit. There were a lot of beautiful things about it including the costumes, music, and performances. It also broke my heart a little, but I can't say my sister didn't warn me.
What did you guys think of it?

I did sneak Wetzel bitz for me and a cupcake for Gabe in my red purse...ok, ok, and an iced vanilla latte too. Hopefully nobody from the theater follows my blog but somehow I doubt they would. The popcorn is just too (fake) buttery and gross and the candy is stale and boring so what else is a girl supposed to do?

I found these red loafers the other day and they are so perfect to me! I wanted some red shoes and I haven't really seen any this style new so I was lucky to find them in my size vintage. My predictions were true about this coat as well. I will wear it forrrrrever!










(Sailor top- c/o Club Couture, Jeans- UO via Crossroads two years ago. I just got a new zipper put in. Wee! It's hard for me to find jeans that fit.., Coat- Anthro Ruffian, Shoes- Vintage, Satchel- Asos, Socks- J.Crew, Pin- A.P.C., Necklace- In God We Trust, Watch- Passed on to me from my grandma via my Mom)

It was just a wonderful weekend sort of California day. Sigh. :)

So, I wanted to share my favorite hair products with you just in case someone might find their very perfect product! My hair is very fine so I use an abundance of volumizing products.



1. Bed Head Epic Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
This Shampoo and Conditioner are light and fabulous.

2. Paul Mitchell Extra Body Daily Boost

3. Paul Mitchell Extra Body Foam
I got my cosmetology license from Paul Mitchell so I have used every single Paul Mitchell product imaginable and while a lot of their products are mediocre, these extra body products are amazing.

4. Marrakesh Oil
This is my favorite find! Somehow, it's Oil but not Oily. I put a few squirts on wet hair and it protects from the heat of the blowdryer and curling iron. I use this everyday no matter what.

5. Bed Head Hard head Hair spray
I have to spray my bangs or they split in seconds. Just a thin layer to keep them in place.

6. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush
This gives an amazing texture to fine hair. Boosts up the volume and allows an extra day or two in between washes! I usually just spray it on the roots and then a thin layer over the whole head on days that you don't want to shampoo. Amazing!

So, that is that! So maybe you'll find your perfect product in there somewhere. :)

Ok, we're off to get a, Orange Mango Iced Tea and a waffle dessert of some kind. Life is great!

  8. Your red shoes are amaaayyyyziiiin!

    Loved True Grit! I hope that little girl wins an award. I saw it on Christmas Eve with my fam, 10 of us ranging in ages 14 to 92 and we ALL enjoyed it...that's hard!

    Going to have to try out that dry shampoo! The one I have used is a little pricey and love any excuse to sleep in longer in the morning.

  11. Just the perfect amount of punch for a matinee! Love the red accents.
    I'm completely different, not a hair product girl even though I confess to a slight indulgence in different conditioners.

  13. that coat is so yummy i want one like that and those red shoes really do pop

    i agree about movie theatre snacks - it's so much more delicious (and cheap!) to sneak in treats!

  16. Batiste dry shampoo is the biggest god send ever! It's great that they do a brown one now for me, I just end up using it ALL the time x

  27. I just wanted you to know that you inspire me :D I just bought the dry shampoo because i've been on the look out for one, i was going to try Oscar Blandi but this one is much better priced. My hair is thin as well, i'm trying to take some vitamins to maybe give it some natural fullness.. ok i've rambled enough :)

  28. I love the way that purse always gives a pop to your outfits. Great gift!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Again your color mixing is awesome and I'm loving the jeans and sock combo!

    I really enjoyed True Grit-then again I always enjoy a Cohen brothers film! And Jeff Bridges can certainly play a convincing drunk!

  35. your kicks are awesome, the color is so bold. They make me wanna get more red shoes in my wardrobe. I agree about the movie theaters food selection, its mediocre at best. I will usually get a coke and maybe bring a nipper and pour it in (not every time of course)...but you know whatever floats your boat :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the look! The jeans and the shoes are so cute! :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love your hair, it always seems like it's glowing! Makes me miss having blonde hair. I know what you mean about the bangs splitting though.. a good trick is to spray the underneath the bangs a good bit, this stops them splitting, but they don't look crispy! haha x

    ReplyDelete
  38. girl, i'm all about sneaking food into the theatre. 1, that shit is expensive! i'm not paying $5+ for a box of raisinets. 2, i don't want something that's been sitting around for god knows how long. 3, you can't buy beer at the concession stand.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ha, love that you sneaked that into the theatre. Brilliant.

    Great shoes; I love the colour. And great hair too. x

    ReplyDelete
  40. beautiful! i love the pops of red :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. perfection! i've probably said that about most of your outfits but i truly mean it every time. and you're wearing pants twice in one week. :)

    thanks for hair product tips. i too am cursed with fine hair and i have yet to find a volumizer. i will have to test some of these babies out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. love that pop of color in the shoes and bag! fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have incredibly baby-fine hair as well (plus it's dry) and I've heard a lot about Marrakesh oil, so I should check it out soon.
    I loved True Grit, and loved the relationship between Maddie and Rooster. So sweet and sad. I think I'll check out the book.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Too cute Coury. Too stinking cute.
    I also can't go without my Paul Mitchell Body Foam. Does just the trick!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ooh cute sailor top. I love anything with exaggerated collars lately. I saw True Grit last week with the hubby, and we both were blown away by the film. Jeff Bridges is just so dang good. And the music was heartwrenching. I lol'ed when you talked about bringing other food in, because I do that too. I put my jacket over my drink and such. Haha!

  50. I've been looking for some nice red shoes (so I can pretend I'm Dorothy in OZ) but couldn't find a pair that I would like... maybe next spring :)
    And the red bag is absolutely beautiful.
