remember how i told you last thursday that i wanted to go ahead and get that outfit post up before a change happened? well, the change happened. eleven inches shorter, and quite a bit lighter, i'm a new woman! or at least i feel like one. i'd been debating these last few months whether or not i wanted to donate my hair to locks of love, or keep it long and continue complaining about it. back in early december, before i had a chance to talk myself out of it, i made an appointment with carli for friday the 13th. i'm still trying to get used to this new person looking back at me in the mirror, but i think i really like it...
can i tell you something without you thinking i'm a terrible person? once my cut was finished, obviously all i could do was stare at my reflection, because hey, that's a big change! i also couldn't help thinking that i wanted my long hair back. then on saturday morning i got up, looked in the mirror, and really started feeling pitiful. i didn't realize how much of an accessory my hair was, and i got sort of self-conscious and thought maybe people that had been used to seeing me with long hair would laugh at me. then i had to give myself a little pep talk and remind myself that i'm lucky enough to have hair that will continue to grow back, and i did it to help someone else who really needs it, and furthermore, i needed to stop feeling so sorry for myself. so i looked on the locks of love site at the pictures of people who had received wigs, and then i felt guilty for being so ridiculous and so glad that i could help. once i took a shower and let my hair get wavy (carli straightened it after she cut it which i decided was what made me not like it at first) i realized just how much i like my new hair!
i took carli these pictures of the always beautiful alexa chung as my hair inspiration, because what girl wouldn't want those perfect waves and that healthy shine?! i'm still trying to decide whether or not i want to add a little ombre to mine or just leave it natural, but i think for right now i'll just try to work on getting used to the length and the fact that it won't take 4 hours to dry after a shower! WOOOOO!
and one other exciting piece of news i wanted to tell you about - tomorrow i'm going to be giving away a little piece of dinosaur toes jewelry just to thank you for all of your lovely comments and support, so be sure to come back and enter!
