Maybe We Can Find New Ways To Fall Apart
If there's one thing I'm conscious of when it comes to my body, it's probably my hair. Before I start talking about my OOTD, let me tell you all about the tragic tale surrounding my new haircut. You see, I am very meticulous when it comes to caring for my hair. I shampoo and condition it regularly, and I always make sure to apply deep nourishing treatments every week because I use a hair straightener every single day. I can go out without makeup, or without wearing nice clothes . . . But God forbid that I go out without perfectly styled hair lol.
While I've been quite happy with my hairstyle recently, I also decided that I needed a change. I used to love experimenting with my hair -- I've shaved off one entire side of my head when Rihanna made the undercut popular, I've cut my hair into a sleek, short bob when Victoria Beckham was all the rage, and I've dyed my hair blonde, brown, red, jet black, and even an ashy green color before. Not to mention the fact that I did all of that without a second's hesitation because I loved shocking people everytime I changed up my look.
Now, however, everything's changed.
When I went to the salon a few days ago, I was scared. I didn't even know what I was afraid of to tell you the truth. I just didn't want to change my hairstyle because I've really grown accustomed to it.
I even had a mini meltdown in front of my friends prior to getting my hair cut. Call me vain, but I was terrified that I wouldn't look good anymore with shorter hair. I know that's kind of strange for me to think, since I've spent about two years before with a short asymmetrical bob when I lived in Thailand and California, but I guess ever since I let my hair grow to almost shoulder-length, I kind of got used to the length.
To make a long story short, I ended up crying (yes, crying) before going to the salon and my friends all waited patiently as they talked me into going through with the haircut.
Thirty minutes later, I emerged from the salon with a drastically shorter 'do, and now I look like this. What do you guys think? You can be honest with me. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Personally, I am still in mourning for all my lost hair, but I've never been one to be insecure so I'm okay with it now. I mean, I'd like to think that I can rock absolutely anything, and that includes short hair.
Now, let's move on to my outfit! I'm sure you're well aware of the fact that I love mixing and matching colors and prints. In fact, it's something I always encourage people to do because I hate people who are boring when it comes to fashion. Seriously, when someone tells me that the only thing they can think of pairing with leopard-print leggings is a black top, I get extremely annoyed. Be a little more open-minded, people! Think ouside the box.
Green and red are two colors that always compliment each other well. Someone told me that I might look like a Christmas tree if I wear this color combination, and you all know how I love to prove people wrong. I paired my green blazer and red jeans with my gold Converse, which some might say would add to the Christmas feel, but go on . . . Look at me. Do I look like a Christmas tree to you? I don't think so, darling. I think I look quite cool.
