i missed it so much

Black hair made a nice disguise. It swaddled and coddled me through a harsh winter. But pink is who I am.

hair III

I had promised myself I’d refrain from bleaching until I got a professional’s eye on my technique. Last night, though, I got sick of waiting. Maybe drugstore dyes will fry my hair, but going without my signature color does far more of a number on me psychologically. Pink is my natural color. I feel like pure, unadulterated, 100% me, and I refuse to sacrifice that.

Real outfit photos to come tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy my fancy follicles.

this is my brain on (relatively) normal

Sometimes I really just want simplicity. I look like your average UVM chick today (well, maybe a little more colorful).

I got a haircut! I had dinner at my parents’ house last night, and then my mother cut my hair. Just an inch and a half off, but it’s so much rounder and bouncier. This is a good length for me.

They say horizontal stripes widen, but I actually find this sweater slimming.

I’m actually wearing jeans! I’ve been more comfortable in them lately, especially since I started coming to terms with my thighs.

The warmest hat I own.

I love how these jeans fit. They were $15 at Charlotte Russe, but they’re remarkably well structured. Also, I sucked it up and bought the “short”, and the length is PERFECT.

Told you the length was perfect. Also, I’m a big fan of these shoes. THEY DON’T HURT. (I apologize for the lighting. The color of the jeans is more accurately depicted in the pictures above than in this one.)

I got a red carpet. This is gonna be fun.
