Of course, you do need to tassel the hair around now if you want a more classy look tie your hair into a bun.  Now, I know many people don't like having their hair in a bun because they feel that having hair slicked back does not suit their face shape. You just have to find what best suits your face frame. With all this said I DARE you to find the best bun that suits your face. xo, Moinca

I am totally digging the color burgundy at the moment. Wearing it totally makes up for our non-fall season. What do you like best about fall? is it the food, family, sales etc. Can you all believe it is almost 2017. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week.

My favorite season of all time is here now. I love the new smells and the nice burnt orange leaves on trees. As you can see I am wearing a burnt orange cardigan, grey skirt and a dress underneath. Yes! I am wearing a dress underneath this skirt. Hope you all have a wonderful week and stay warm .... well if you are in southern California stay cool.
