Outfit: Out with a Bang Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters, I’ve had bangs for a very, very long time. With the exception of a few experiments in high school and college, I’ve been rocking this ‘do since I was just a toddler with wispy blonde ringlets. Having bangs feels so me, so crucial to my appearance and even my identity. So why on earth would I grow them out? I realized that I’ve been using my bangs to hide my face.  Whenever I’ve thought about growing them out, I look back at pictures of me when I didn’t have bangs, and I honestly think I’m ugly. Not so with bangs!  They’ve always made me feel cute.  They soften my hard Irish bone structure and hide my poorly-maintained eyebrows.  And besides, at my height, I’ll never be sexy, so I may as well be as cute as possible, right? WRONG!  Having this blog for over a year has made me…

Outfit: Village Life

Village Life, Lately, I’ve become a huge fan of Mode and the City, an impossibly chic lifestyle and fashion blog based in France.  It’s run by a lovely young woman known only as Daphne, and while I can’t read what she writes, I can definitely admire her style!  It’s exactly what I’ve always imagined Parisian style to be–simple, chic, perfectly tailored, and classic. I wanted to incorporate some of those design elements into my outfit today, but do it in the Mox and Socks way.  I can’t see Daphne wearing a fuzzy blue sweater covered in hearts (and dog hair…), but I certainly can envision her in cigarette jeans with a ribbon in her hair!

Outfit: In This Light

Outfit Everybody’s got resolutions on their minds, and I’m no different.  Add to it the fact that my blogiversary is coming up (which I count as my birthday–at the end of this month–because that was the day I decided to get serious about Mox and Socks, or, as it was known then, Breve e Dolce), and I’ve been thinking hard about what my plans are for the future of this blog. When I first started out, I intended this to be a fun and easy, once-a-month endeavor.  I quickly found, though, that I loved being immersed in the blogging world, and I discovered a passion for photography…or, at least, glorified selfies. Once a month became once a week and sometimes even more than that. I have to admit, though, that I get burnt out pretty easily.  There’s so much to keep up with that sometimes I want to quit. Obviously,…
