flow it, show it, long as god can grow it

Man, I really need a haircut. At the very least, I need to have someone scrape out significant volume... but I'm also kind of tempted to cut it all off. Well... not all of it. I've been thinking about a sixties-style bob for a while (à la Anna Karina in Pierrot le fou), but I'm so scared. I don't know why I have this really intense relationship with my hair. When I was in high school I went from long locks to croptop, and looking back I seriously regret it. I looked silly. At the time everyone was saying I looked so "mature" and that it was "fun," and plenty of lovely gals can rock that look, but it just didn't really work on me. Man, when I look back at some of the style choices I made in my confused adolescence, I can't help but shake my head and chuckle. At least I had a distinct style of my very own... some day I'll have to post a few embarassing photos from my formative years. They're always good for a giggle.

(skirt: Salvation Army, hemmed; tunic: Marshall's; tights: Kohl's; boots: ALDO; scarf/belt: thrifted)

This outfit was originally very autumnal--browns and burgundy all around. I decided to plug the blue tights into the equation for a little bit of flair, and I think it works (although they are a little bit more turquoise IRL), but I'm annoyed that they look so sheer! I'm thinking I might start buying tights a size up so they aren't quite as... well, tight. Or I'll stop trying to skrimp on cheap-o versions and stick to the trusty HUE 2-for-20 deal at Macy's.

Happy Hump Day, friends. You're all fabulous.

  1. I've been trying to grow my hair longer forever, and it just won't do it. It gets a bit longer, then starts splitting and I have to keep getting it cut off again... so I envy you your masses of hair!
    I love the mustard coloured blouse with the bow around the neck too. : )

    Oh, and if you've been in the underground and a bar... I expect that's pretty representative of London!
