New Hair

I've been growing out my hair for a long time, but I'm tired of it. It's in that awful shaggy, half-grown out stage. I have an appointment to get it cut tomorrow, and I still have no clue what to get, so I'm documenting for future reference. Maybe it'll just get a trim, maybe I'll go bald, we'll just have to see.

All Grown Up

So, I've gotten my first pair of fake nails. Yes, I've finally become a real woman. I know, oh I know. We're all proud. Also, you can't tell in the picture but I'm wearing a black leotard, black leggings, black cardigan, and grey skirt. I'm feeling a little Greta Garbo today.

Holy Ghost People

Hype me on Lookbook!

But in other news, today I played dress up with my new 1950's thrift store find. Curled hair, red lipstick, and saddle shoes complete the picture.

To Everything There is a Season

It's really crazy how much you can change in one year. Even more insane is how much you can change in 5 years, in just one thing. Take, for example, my hair.

Me, sophomore year of high school. I started out with my hair long and unkempt. This wasn't so much a stylistic choice so much as I didn't bother to learn how to blow-dry hair until I was like in college. Ok, I'll be honest, I'm still not great at it...

This is me from prom my senior year. Junior year I got my haircut into a fantastic messy textured bob type thing. I got a ton of compliments, many phrased along the lines of "I never noticed you before but now I actually think you look good!" While flattered this incident made me afraid to grow my hair out for years.

Freshman year of college I decided to try something I'd been thinking about getting for years: a pixie cut. Also I decided to go ginger, another thing I'd wanted to do for forever.

And then the awkward growing out stage. I have pictures that are way worse, but you can bet your ass I'm not posting them online.

More growing out, except I really like this length. This is basically the messy bob I got so many compliments on in high school. I'm growing my hair out right now for fun, but something tells me I'll end up back at this. If something works for you go for it. Just ask Anna Wintour.

Worst haircut ever, but I basically got what I asked for. I'm always envious of other people's bangs or edgy cuts, but they always look terrible on me. I really do best with simple hair styles. And bangs are always a poor choice for me because I have so little patience for styling them. I do like the dark color against my skin, I'd be willing to go brunette again.

Aaaand this is me as of today. The dark hair lightened, the ginger faded, it's all still growing out (especially those bangs). Not sure what I'm doing next, planning on growing it out, but the wait is so long and awkward stages are so, well, awkward.

P.S. In case you didn't catch it in the previous photo, I got my nose pierced! New addition from this weekend.

It's amazing how much a different hairstyle can change your look, and it's always amusing to realize how different you or your tastes have become in even a short period of time. So now I've shared mine, I think you need to share yours. Best haircuts? Worst haircuts?
I demand to see them all!

Summer Camp Destroys My Attractiveness Possibilities

So I got a job at a summer camp at a nature center. Goodbye pretty clothes, goodbye fun purses, goodbye cute shoes. Hello sports t-shirts and khaki shorts everyday!Basically I'm trying to excuse why I haven't updated in forever.

Instead of necklaces and jewelry I wear a lanyard with a plastic name-tag and keys attached. Plus my dad's man watch (I actually kind of like this addition).

I also wear tie-dye now. No, I'm serious.

Aaaand I wear these combo hiking/river shoes. They're like legitimate crocs. Oh yeah, I'm serious.

And this is my new carryall.
So I'm sorry I never post anymore, you can kind of see why. I hope you guys are having an awesome summer! And I will be updating, just probably far less personal fashion shots. And I'm hoping to be going to New York in the fall, so my outfits will not go to waste! But admit it, the river shoes are kind of cool...

It's Been a While...

Hey y'all. I just wanted to say sorry for the lack of new posts. Alexi is in Italy (lucky!) and I'm busy looking for a job (also after moving out of my dorm room I can't seem to find my camera...), so it might be a longer wait than usual for new content. But, hey! It's summer vacation! Why are you inside reading a blog when you could be outside in the sun?

(Because our blog is super awesome and new updates in the future will be exciting, that's why! Come back soon, as soon as I nail down employment and find my camera I've got a ton of new outfits and updates to share!)

Givenchy Goes Coed

Can you spot what's new in this picture?

Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci is "using a transsexual among the cast for the house’s fall-winter ad campaign", a Brazilian named Lea T.

This is utterly fabulous, I love it. It reminds me of an earlier post where I talked about gender and fashion. That model is beautiful and everyone knows I love gender ambiguity, I'm excited for the new ad campaign!
