There's so much new going on in this photo - kind of perfect for one of my first posts of the new year, don't you think? First of all, there's this sweater, which I was lucky enough to snag from Rachel of Jag Lever. I'll be the first to admit that sequins aren't usually my thing, but how could I ever say no to this fox? I actually bought this sweater a couple months ago (and have worn it once a week ever since), but somehow it hadn't yet made its blog debut. It's hard to have a bad day when you've got a sparkly fox on your chest, I've found.
It's funny how much people associate me with foxes now, even if they don't know about this blog. A couple weeks ago, I even got to play a fox in a skit at the local Russian Christmas party. I was a bit under the weather, but they liked my performance so much that I am officially going to be the fox every year! I don't understand every word (the skits are mostly Russian; I spoke my lines in English), but it is really fun to get to take part in my sisters' culture.
Anyway, aside from my sweater, my lady tie is also new - and in a way, so is my hair. The former was a Christmas gift from Chris, and I've been wearing it pretty much every single day I can get away with it! The latter is a result of this no-heat hair curling technique, which is probably the best I've found so far. I really hate putting heat on my hair, so I was delighted to find this method - even more so when I discovered that it worked beautifully! Have you ever tried it out?
P.S. - The title of this post comes from the song "Fox Heart" by Photographers. You can listen to it here.
