{STYLE} Femme Fatale


If you're as compulsive about checking Instagram as I am, and happen to be following me, you may have noticed my hair has been getting progressively lighter. I've been experimenting with different hair colors since I was 13-years-old and got my first dose of Very-California-Girl highlights that I used as a jumping off point for the beginning of a longterm addiction to Manic Panic. Continue...

Since then, my hair has virtually spanned the entire rainbow (though I've dabbled with shades of blue and turquoise, I've entirely skipped proper shades of green). It's been dip-dyed and ginger and half-horribly-untoned-bleach-and-half-box-dye-black. For me, experimenting with my hair (both color and cuts) has been as integral a part of my self-expression and sartorial identity as my wardrobe. 

As my hair has inched closer towards my personal Blonde Ambition Tour (2013, Featuring Performances by Flores), I've noticed it influencing my style just a little bit more. My redheaded days brought on an influx of Pin-Up-inspired looks, and as a newly minted blonde, I'm having moments of Hard Femme Leather Lady and Real Housewife of Brooklyn and Courtney Love Pre-Rehab (but without the self medicating), and obviously not all at the same time. Nineties revival, I'll be coming for you in such a real way. Maybe.

What has your hair history looked like? And how has it influenced your style?

  11. Ha!! You caught me. The truth is Ali has kicked my ass about committing more time to my blog, and the more effort I put into it, the more I've enjoyed the results. I'm really proud of what I've been doing lately with this space!

  14. Catharsis at it its finest is being able to do what you love--even when your heart is (eh) hurting-- that is how you know you love it! Always remember this... Ali started having feelings for you because you were your own person and you had things and "it" going on. If you start losing yourself in her, she will lose the respect for you. Trust me--I am speaking from experience. You were busy and hard to catch--Keep her chasing after you! These words may ring empty in your ears right now but... well, let's just hope that you don't have to reflect upon them. :)
    Again, I am glad to see you back inspiring me to keep reaching.

  17. We have definitely had a similar hair journey. I went to private catholic school my entire life and felt even subtle changes to my hair was the only way to express my personal style amongst the plaid messes that were my uniforms. And then, I went a little crazy in college - pink, purple, half and half, graduated with bright blue hair, and on and on. Now, I recently tried to grow my hair out and just have it black - I failed and chopped it all off. But now I feel most like myself - and will feel even color once it goes platinum a la Michelle Williams (HAIR ENVY). Hair is such an easy way to play with alter egos and truly find what makes you most comfortable/confident.


    PS. your outfit in this post is PERFECT
