fringe

I stopped by Fringe Salon to meet up with Miss Kimberly, who was getting her hair colored and trimmed. We also made a half-hearted attempt at finding our bridesmaid dresses. I was planning on making mine, but since I am in way over my head, I think I might just buy one. Very simple - we just need all black dresses. It's just that I'm extremely picky and unrealistic. Is it so much to ask for a 50s or early 60s dress with a nipped in waist and full skirt, in solid black? Oh, and can it be my measurements and within my budget? Too much to ask? Yeah, I guess so:)

At least we accomplished one thing: Kim's hair is colorful again! If you're in NYC and you need your hair done, I highly recommend checking out Fringe. It's an adorable salon with the cutest, friendliest stylists. I'm sure everyone is equally talented, but I know from firsthand experience that Amy (the owner), Jen and Holly are amazing. Prepare to girl crush on all of them. Check them out and then stop in Babycakes (next door) for some delicious vegan treats!

Love Love,
Keiko Lynn
 
p.s. I just realized that I wore a fringe skirt to Fringe Salon. YES!

  1. It's funny to watch how there you can still wear short dresses without tights, no jacket or scarfs... And here I'm freezing in my cardigans and gloves and coats!

    Such a lovely outfit :)

    Etsy.com have lots of 1950 & 1960 dresses or buy a sewing pattern and alter the length of the dress...

  17. That's funny because I thought you were going to say you got the fringe skirt at Fringe Salon. Most of our local salons here in Asheville, NC have a boutique too.
    Hey! I tried your "top knot/messy bun" this weekend and it worked great! I love it because it works well with a vintage look as well as a modern edgy look. Thanks

    If you do want a custom made dress give me a shout, it's kind of my speciality and vintage is my love. Etsy is amazing too for vintage finds.

  24. Keiko, you look adorable as usual! Colors always look beautiful on you. How do you pose for your pictures without looking akward? I always have troubles being super akward posing for my blog pictures. Hope you had a great birthday last week!

  31. love your shoes! i also really love kim's hair!!! i have always wanted to try something like that, but i am too chicken...maybe if i had a place around here like fringe.

  32. You should check etsy for your bridesmaid dress. I've seen several vintage black dresses with fitted waists and full skirts...sorry, I can't remember the shop names at the moment. If you do a search, I'm sure something will come up:) Even if the size was slightly off, it might be cheaper to buy it anyway and alter it.

  33. The dress is lovely, the fringe detail is really cool and the green-blue color is perfect. :)

    Good luck with finding your bridesmaid dresses!

  35. Love that you are keeping colour alive! Seems black is too ingrained in some people! So... Do you think your friend's mum has lost her suede skirt to you for good? ;)
