I know I've been really bad about outfit posts for a while! Work has been really stressful, and honestly, the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is create photographic evidence of my exhaustion.

So you will have to trust me when I say I am growing out my hair, and it is getting longer (oh so slowly).

I've had long hair a few times in my life, and my mother always told me that we just don't have the hair for it. In fact, both my parents have long encouraged my sister and I to keep our locks on the shorter side because it's just "more flattering" for us. I do have naturally thin hair (though it's thick in the sense that there are tons of these fine hairs). For the past few years, I've been a bit unsure of what to do with it style and care-wise when it's long, and I've enjoyed the liberating feeling I get from cutting it all off. So long hair for me? Not so much.

That being said, I decided a few months back to give long hair another try. And boy, is it tedious. I cut bangs into it to keep myself amused, and dyed it brown.

Actually, these changes might work to my advantage. The dark color makes my hair look a bit thicker and the bangs solve a problem I always struggled with in framing my face when I had stick straight, looong hair. I've also been doing research on how to make it look nicer (Herbal Essences and a blow dry just weren't cutting it alone).

Today I stumbled on the site Thread Sence,which has pretty sweet clothes at good prices. Even better for me was the hair inspiration! The model featured my basic hair goal, minus the color. I spent the better part of my time on the site daydreaming about the hair I will have if only I can wait...



  1. I really like your hair now. The dark color suits you a lot and the length is good. I can TOTALLY picture you with this hair style though. I think it would be adorable on you!

  2. I love that models hair. Though she looks a little, out of it, shall we say? in those photos. Not that it's relevant, just that it seemed to strange not to comment on.

    I think you rocked your shorter hair, and your current bob is adorable; you totally need to cut your bangs like that models though!

    Chic on the Cheap
