Every Thursday Krisa brings you the best hair out there!

So here’s my question. How much money do we have to spend until we can look at our closets and not sigh, “I have nothing to wear”. Me, I’m a shopper. If it’s not one thing, it’s another: books, candles, music, bedding, handbags, note cards, jewelry, dishes, photo frames, plants, antiques, towels… you get the picture. There’s always some kind of obsession I’m going through, but along with whatever current must-haves, I’m always on the lookout for, and buying, clothes. What can I say? It’s what I do; I shop. Sometimes I feel like a teenage girl: Hobbies: shopping and talking on the phone. And if you’re reading this, I’m sure you’re not much different.

But somehow every time I open my closet doors I just stare at the racks, vacantly, unmoved. There must be something fabulous in there somewhere. Didn’t I just drop a few bills at Bluefly? But, no, I have nothing to wear. Again. Always.

(I have a friend who tells me she solves this problem by buying something new to wear every day. Nothing big – a cami here, a skirt there, a pair of shoes. But that way, you always have something new that you’re excited to debut. Hmm. It might solve the problem, but in practice? I’m not sure I have the time or the money.)

The other night I had a dinner date at a jazz club. I had a few minutes to stop at home after work, change, and hit the road. Instead, I spent an hour and a half trying on every possible combination in my closet. Nearly in tears, I finally hit upon the old standby of white blouse, jeans, & heels. Breathing a sigh of relief, I was ready at last to face the world. I decided right then and there that that was going to be my uniform for the rest of the season. White blouse, jeans, heels. So since then I’ve been on a tear. I need to find the perfect white blouse. Probably 5 or 6 of them. And really well-fitting jeans (not as easy as it should be!) And super cute shoes. Plus, a great jacket and handbag. Oh, and some fabulous necklaces. Earrings, too… This isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

Here’s a hair masque that has become my old reliable: Regis Design Line Olive Oil Hair Masque. It’s reminiscent of the mayo mask that women did in the 70’s. It has a creamy, whipped consistency and smells like you could eat it. But it also gets the job done – locks in moisture, tames the frizzies, softens, and conditions. According to the package it also “increases color intensity and protects against color fade”. Can’t beat that! Or the price, which is just under $15. Which leaves me a few more dollars to spend on that perfect white blouse. Once I find it.
