I’m having a blast with this “short hair” business. I can do so much with it. I can.. pin curl it? That about all I’ve come up with so far.
I’m still trying to figure out ways to keep it behind my ears to avoid something that resembles a blunt bowl cut (which is always a risk when you cut your hair too short and add bangs to the mix), and so far I’ve come up with pin-curls, head bands (just when I thought that period of my life was over!), and pig-tails. I want to figure out something to do with upside-down french braids so I can fake some kind of milkmaid hair-do, but apart from that, I’m all out of ideas.
But I’ve also started experimenting with a whole new area–hair bows. On the day I got my haircut, to celebrate, I bought a shiny little bow from a My Cube store for a couple of bucks.
Has anyone ever seen those before? They’re a store where multiple different sellers hire out cubes in the wall to sell their stock without having to pay the undoubtedly exorbitant fees associated with renting the entire area. I was considering selling something in one of them but ultimately I have no good ideas for that sort of business venture. I can barely bring myself to sell my old clothing.
But enough about my hair–How about this gorgeous two-toned silk pencil skirt? At first I wasn’t entirely sold on the green/magenta combination (why couldn’t it be something more harmonious like magenta and blue, or magenta and red or something?) but it’s kind of grown on me, and you know I’m a sucker for quality fabrics. Please note that means I prefer quality materials, not that I will reject polyester, because my wardrobe is pretty much as flammable as it gets–thank you eBay.
What I wore:
- Touch by Alyssa Milano 102 Black Pink Glasses – c/o Clearly
- Nautical Hair Bow – My Cube, $2
- Diamond-Patterned Pussy Bow Blouse – Target, c/o MA
- Gold Bangle and Lorus Watch – Graduation Gifts

- Duo-Toned Silk Pencil Skirt – Endeavour Thrift Store, $6.95
- White Kidskin Leather Heels – Mascotte, $28
Definitely feels a bit Mad Men around here lately.
Thanks for your support of my short hair, by the way–I’ve gotten lots of feedback via social media channels and everyone seems to really like the change, which is awesome, because I’m a low-maintenance gal and this hair is about as low-maintenance as it gets. So it’ll be sticking around for a while, still..
