Lookbook: Power Bun

by Heather
I had no idea Mel was posting about hair buns yesterday; must be sistertuition. Here's my tight bun with a haphazard swirly wrap.

I feel very controlled yet sexy in this outfit...I should have worn my glasses and held a book for a sexy librarian look. As if I was a librarian by day and high class hooker by night. How else can I afford to pay my bills on a librarian salary? Haha, I'm on a tangent.

It was actually way too hot in Santa Monica over the weekend to sport this look, but I was jonesing for some fall getups after countless hours of blogger stalking. I mean it is November! But I relish the warm sun, so I'm not really complaining.

Dress from H&M (bought 2 years ago); denim wrap by Killah (bought 6 or 7 years ago on major sale); leather purse (with removable chain and loop attached in the back to fasten to your belt!) from some random shop on Main Street in SM [squealed with joy when I spotted it on sale]; tights from Stocking Shopping (great inexpensive novelty stockings online); boots by 2 Prima from Loehmann's about 3 years ago.


  1. I love that denim wrap!!! You look great! I can never pull off the bun without looking like an out of place ballet dancer. I love the whole look on you!

  2. amazing denim wrap vest! love that!

  3. Love that outfit! You could have worn that in NYC! Buns are truley the best hair do! How funny that we both had this hairstyle on the mind!
