I got an overall really positive response. I've decided to chalk this up as a success. Also further proof that they really don't care what I wear to work so long as I am a bit careful.
This weekend I had a lot of free time, so I tried playing with a few outfits. I have a really warm winter coat, so I generally have the luxury of wearing whatever I want and just throwing a coat over it. I gave this a shot:
Afterwards, I took one look at this photo and laughed at myself. Then I put that tiny, tiny skirt back, put some jeans on and went out for a while. While I have fun posting outfits that I like, it's fun to share my missteps too.
As evidenced by the above photo, I have very very short hair. It's grown out to the point of being in an awkward phase, and I'm anxious to let it get longer but shape it back up (and dye it back to brown, rather than the reddish color it's slowly lightened to).
I've never loved having long, long hair because it takes me at least a year to do it and is a massive pain. I am, however, the kind of person who is really drawn to the non-commitment of clip-in extensions. I got all kinds of fired up a few weeks back to try some, but a saleswoman talked me out of it. She laughed that my hair was way too short. I was disheartened and dropped the idea.
Oddly enough, it was Kate Gosselin's weird new hair that made me think to give it one more shot. I have a friend with clip-in extensions who has kindly offered to let me come over and try them. I'd obviously have to cut any set I purchased down a bit to blend a better with my hair. But I think it would be really fun to try! Anyone have any good, bad or ugly experiences with clip-ins?
