My New Red Hair
Well, one of my "Eleven in 2011" was to dye my hair red. And this weekend I finally did it. Not just any red either, I wanted a thoroughly bright, vivid, completely unnatural red! Last August I dyed my hair for the first time in seven years. I went subtle, choosing a darker brown than my own. I loved that too! I'm pretty pale, so I like dark colors with my pale skin tones, I really don't feel a lighter color would "fit" me. The remaining dark brown in the lower portion of my hair caused the red to tint a lot dark, so it creates this sort of faded almost dip-dyed effect. I used a dye made for dark hair, but I guess the lighter red still couldn't handle covering the darker brown. I am really happy with it. I love how refreshing it is to have a new look almost instantly.
These pictures are of me on a typical day. While I love my dresses and skirts, most days you will find me in jeans and converse with a t shirt or sweater. I've been trying to mix it up with some prettier shirts and scarves and such, but I have a dirty job, and don't want to ruin any of my cute clothes. I only wear cute clothes to work on the days I know will be "light duty". So I thought it my be fun to give you a picture of the everyday me. How about you? Whats your everyday outfit look like? What would you rather be wearing? I would rather be wearing a fabulous vintage dress any day!
