This post is a little embarrassing. It is proof that I probably think a little more about how I look than is considered cool. It’s just that with this crazy winter, I’ve been feeling a little drab and boring. In the beginning of the season, I was all about the big, cozy sweater, black jeans and boots. It was a uniform. It was a GREAT uniform. Functional, warm, passively chic. It served a good purpose. However, it’s been worn almost every day now for the past 4 months, and I am officially over it, and motivated to have some fun.
As I write this, there is about 8 inches of fresh snow on the ground. I do not care. Fuck warmth, I want to feel like I look nice again.
So, I began by chopping off all of my hair. My head is cold, but I was told recently by an acquaintance that I now look like a college student, so it’s worth it.
My hair was long before, long like this:
Now it is short, short like this:
I can’t imagine going from that long to that short in one fell swoop, however, so it kind of progressed like this:
Till I finally grew balls and cropped the back.
So now that I finally got the cut right, I realize that a few extra-femme things are in order. So here are some Polyvores to inspire:
Of course I’m not going to throw away my uniform, because it’s still freezing, and that would be madness. But breaking it up a bit and perhaps making peace with feeling shivery every once in a while will not kill a bitch.
If you’re thinking about being a risky risk taker and cutting your own hair, or having a trusted friend do it for you, here’s a tutorial that helped me:
