Shoesday Tuesday- Pretty in Pink

After work today I got my first pedicure of the season:
About the only thing related to shoes in this post is that I really didn't plan well for the pedicure. I wore my (favorite) black CLOSED-TOE wedges to work today and didn't have time to stop at home to change before heading to the spa. So I ended up wearing those disposable flip flops all the way home. Thank goodness I didn't get pulled over! I even left the toe separators in! I realized after the pedi was finished that I'd chosen a bright pink polish. (The colors never look the same on your toes as they do in the bottle, do they?) I thought I'd picked a much deeper purple-ish pink, but it was more of a bright fuchsia once it was on my toes. I realized then that I'd gone WAY overboard on the pink today. I wore this dress to work:

And since it was a little chilly, I threw on a trench to keep warm:

Pink, pink and more pink. I'm reminded of Dolores Umbridge:

It seems like nearly every other weekend there's a channel that will run a marathon  of the Harry Potter movies. Over this past weekend I watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. If I haven't mentioned it before, I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I've read all the books at least 5 times, and I like the movies, too. Anyway, maybe Dolores Umbridge's character subliminally affected my outfit choice today. Perish the thought.

And now before you all start commenting on my new hairstyle, specificaly the bangs, let me set the record straight: they are fake. Remember this post about the faux-bangs? Well, I finally got up the nerve to wear them out in public. I felt a little like Zooey Deschanel or Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada." They were a big hit at work, but just like bragging about bargains, I'm unable to keep it to myself that my bangs aren't real. Every time I heard "I like your hair!" or "Yourhair looks good today!" I abslutely HAD to respond with, "My bangs are fake!" It was like tourettes. Well, it was nothing like tourettes, actually, but I felt like I couldn't hold it in. All day I just kept on exclaiming, "My bangs are fake! My bangs are fake!" And here I am announcing it to the whole internet, too. I'm out of control.

But enough about my bangs. Did I tell you they're fake?

I love the coat AND the bangs. Isn't it weird how wehn you where fake hair you feel like everyone is seeing your fake hair first? It looks very natural though. Perfectmatch for your hair color.
