This was my Thanksgiving Day outfit, for dinner at our favorite pub. Jeans and a tee would’ve worked too, but I wanted to dress up a little: in a new-to-me Anthropologie dress I found at ThredUp, an online consignment store, for about $25. I love the Missoni-esque pattern and dip hem (a bit short for me, but that’s why God made tights).
I’m getting ready for a haircut, so I thought I’d try out a short, messy bob with a wig (no crying if I don’t like it!). This is the Victoria by Paula Young, in a pretty rooted blonde, but the style is too short for my taste. And I like my curls better than straight hair. Good to learn this way, yes? rather than sitting in the stylist’s chair.😮

The post is pretty captivating, I got hooked to it and couldn’t stop reading. I’ve read posts similar to this, but this one clearly raises the bar.
These are the nice dresses matching perfectly with hairstyle and sandals.
its been a minute since i have stopped by but can i just say how much i just love the hair!!
great to see you again, and I enjoyed your post about shoes! And thanks for the kind words, xox
Love the wig! It looks so good on you!
thank you Stephanie and have a wonderful week! xox
I do love your curls my friend! This is pretty, but not “you”. The outfit is fab and I am especially diggin’ those boots. I hope you and your love had a fabulous holiday!
thanks, Debbie! If I am very, very good, maybe next lifetime I will get YOUR hair! Loved your post today and the video was uplifting, xox.
How fun that you’re wearing a wig! I never would’ve guessed. I love it and it’s perfect for experimenting. That dress is pretty fabulous too.
Thanks, Daenel. I’m loving your western look today with those patched jeans – just perfect! xox
Once upon a time, I had short hair. And I hated it. So much. I swore never again. Then I cut it for the second time 10 years later, and hated it just as much too. That ended my shorn hair saga, Patti!!! I do think a short, sharp Sassoon bob would look fabulous on you though, especially with the curls. Sassy and spirited, like you xo
Yes, your testimony is helpful, Sheela! And your long hair is so stunning, and so YOU. Thanks for linking up; your article about influencers is thought provoking. xox.
I love your wigs, and I particularly like the idea of trying one out as a haircut tester. I thought long necks are a desirable thing. The dress, yeah, it looks great short but I’m all for tights if they up the confidence level. Thanks for the linkup, Patti. xo
Thanks, Mel. Wigs are great to test out hair decisions, esp color. I am enchanted by your post today – your new bag is dreamy! xox
I’m a committed short hair/short skirt woman, so I like the length of your hair and your dress!
And you own the short hair, Shelley! Thanks for coming by and have a lovely week, xox.
Yes, you look like a sprite! Love the new do, and the zig zag dress. Perfect boots and cardi for thanksgiving warmth ! Have a wonderful week ahead!
Thank you Elle, and so sorry for the loss of your friend. I love this quote from your post: “PICTURE HAPPINESS, DWARF THE GRIEF. ITS A PROCESS.” xox
I think you look great with shorter hair, but my favorite wig of yours is the one you wore a few weeks ago, that was slightly longer (more like a “lob”). It’s fun to play around though, isn’t it?

Thanks, Cheryl and thanks for linking up. I love your slightly-different gift list, esp that RBG mug! xox
You look great with short hair Patti! It’s nice to be able to try it without the commitment. I love your dress, it looks fab with the boots and jacket!
Thank you, Emma. Your camo jeans are so smart! xox
I prefer my skirts to cover my knees too, but there’s nothing wrong with experimenting, and I do think this shorter length looks great on you. Love the jacket too. And how clever to try out a shorter wig first. I actually do look that shorter cut on you, but I can understand you’d miss your curls! xxx
Thank you, Ann! I enjoyed “traveling” to the beautiful deserted beaches with you; you two are always making fine memories. xox
I love your hair and the shorter skirt – it’s fun to step out of our tried and tested routine occasiobnally, isn’t it? xxx
Thanks Vix! And you’re right, if we don’t try new things, we’ll get old fast! xox
Cute hair, Patti! Do you think you’ll cut it?
thanks Dawn Lucy! Your new skinnies look fab. I will get a haircut but not a pixie, at least not just yet! xox
I absolutely love your style. It is cosy and perfect for the season.
thank you Heather, and I appreciate you linking up! xox.
Im a fan of Anthro too Patti, and often get pieces via secondhand shopping. Love the color on you! beautiful in lilac! The length of your dress looks great, as does your short hairstyle ( great to try it on) it really suits you!
thanks so much dear Jess! I agree with you that your camo is a neutral and you mixed your prints beautifully, xox.
Loving the short hair; the new cut is definitely going to suit you – and that’s such a cool dress. I tend to wear skirts and dresses either mid thigh or just below the knee – for some reason in between or longer doesn’t look right on me!
Have a lovely week, and thank you for hosting 🙂
Thanks, Helen and thanks for linking up. Your burgundy dress is adorable! xox
I like both the shorter skirt and the short hair! “Trying on” a new hairstyle with a wig is a great idea!
Thanks for the link up & have a great week!
thanks Andrea! Your new graphic sweater is all that and more! xox
You look very pretty in the purple/lavender colors and I really like the wig style. That’s a great idea to try a wig rather than getting a haircut and realizing you don’t like it. I’ve been there a few times!! I don’t have a fashion post to share today as I’m just back from TG travels. Next week, hopefully!
thank you Debbie, and I hope your trip was a fun and restorative one! xox
Love the dress, it’s flattering on you and your hair looks fab! Kisses and thanks for the linkup

thank you dear Vale. Love your paperbag waist trousers and cool boots! xox
Such a cute fun look!
Thanks, Amy. I’m really liking your dressy blouse and wedge heels today! xox
The short hair looks great. Hope you had a great holiday weekend.
thank you Julie! Your gift ideas are lovely, xox.
woww, you look particularly adorable and cute in your short dress (and hair!), I love the missonesque pattern and the cardi-pullover shape!, the subtle color combo!, the booties!, the necklace! I love everything actually! ;DD
thank you, Sra! I am blushing with all your nice words! xox
Great dress and I look forward to seeing you hair cut. It’s interesting that quite a few American bloggers/instagrammers talk about their wigs. Apparently (said my hairdresser) wigs are not so good in the UK – I wonder why it’s so different?
thanks for the kind words, Penny. I don’t know why wigs are not so popular in the UK; perhaps it’s the pricing/shipping costs that are higher. Have a wonderful week, xox.
I am letting my hair grow again after It was shorter. I am not a short hair woman. And I also like the curls better on you, we both love ,,messy,, hair if I may say so. The dress is beautiful! Love the color pattern.
I love your curls too, Nancy! Thanks for coming over and linking up, xox.
You look great with hair this length Patti! Great to see you with your legs out too. You’ve picked some fantastic cool pieces – I love everything!! xx
thank you Maria, you’re so kind! Loving the calendars you featured in your post, xox.
I just love that wig style on you. That short style suits you so much. I hope the real cut looks like that.
thank you Anna! I enjoyed your style round-up, and I need to find some pleather leggings. xox
Patti! that is a lovely haircut. I love the hairstyle. The dress looks fabulous on you. Always glamorous.
thanks so much, Rama! I hope you have a fabulous week ahead, xox.
Oh what I wouldn’t do for a longer neck! There is such elegance in a long neck.
I love the wig on you. Most of the reason I went red was because I bought a red wig to play with and loved it so much it gave me the courage.
I’m surprised you aren’t showing off your legs more often, especially living in Florida. We are all our own worst enemy when it comes to our perceived flaws.
Your going-red story is inspiring, as you’ve found the perfect color! I can’t “see” you as anything other, and the style is perfection. Agreed that we are too hard on ourselves, xox
A wig is a great way to test-drive a style – I like hair length this on you, even if you don’t, Patti. You have such an elegant neck! I think you have awesome legs! You know I’m a fan of short skirts – show off those legs!
Thank you so much for hosting, my dear!
thank you kindly, Sheila. I shall show off my legs (with tights) more often! Love your weekend styles, xox.
The dress is a little shorter than we’re used to seeing on you. It’s great combined with those boots!
thanks Kim. I love it that you got to meet up with Kellyann! xox
I think the shorter, straight wig looks terrific on you!
thanks Carol! xox
Patti, that wig is marvelous on you! I love the style and that dress with your Doc Martens is terrific. You look great from head to toe!
Thanks, Kelly. Your multi-media cardigan is so great, and it might actually get cool this week! xox
First, I love the shorter hair, Patti. I have one wig this length, and love it.
As for shorter skirts, I feel like the older I get, the shorter my skirts gets…it’s almost funny! Of course it helps with my OTK boots too
thanks jodie! I would love to see you in your wig, and the shorter skirts look fetching on you! xox
Oh puleeze, Patti. You look too cool for school. I like the unusual, unnameable color of the ensemble too. And your chest piece. I believe I have those same docs too.
thanks Pao! I am in love with the red coat with raspberry lining! It’s just beautiful. xox
I think you should go for it and have your hair shortened, it suits you and going well along the shorter dress. You look very pretty
thank you Anna! I enjoyed your trip to Brisbane and your chic lunch outfit, xox
Yes, you really have great legs.
Lynda. Los Altos, Ca
aww, thanks Lynda. I think we are all our own critics! xox
I think you look adorable, Patti. But I love your curls too.
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks Sue, and thanks for linking up. I do love your Rag and Bone trousers, they fit and flatter. xox
Both the dress length and the shorter, straight hair are a pretty, young-ish look that you carry off very well. I wish my 66 year old knee caps were as photogenic as yours! : )
thanks so much for your kind words, Cee! Have a lovely week ahead. xox
