No, I don't have pink hair. I am, however, considering rose gold pink highlights, so when I found the hair highlighting tool on PicMonkey, I couldn't help myself. I'd like to dye my hair dark brown, then add just a few light pink streaks - I just can't decide if I want to add the pink in as extensions or dye a few locks of my hair. The color on extensions would last a lot longer, but I worry about how well they'll stay in. I don't want to have them sticking up out of my head every which way. I'm sure someone out there has extensions - what are your thoughts?
This last photo was originally to illustrate how perfect my eye make up was today - neutral shadows combined with an over-smudged Urban Decay Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion by means of the Glide On Blending Brush and Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash to make me look like one very sexy drowned raccoon. Look for a tutorial later this week - maybe even in video form.
My favorite part of today's outfit is undoubtedly the blue slip dress that peeks out at various spots, although the skewed color scheme was also a lot of fun to put together. I don't normally have the courage to clash this badly, but recent changes in my thought processes have left me feeling a bit daring. Past me would have cowered and felt ashamed when my coworker pointed out how much today's outfit didn't match; today, however, I told her that it was my intention, and I moved on. No dwelling. No anxiety. No overanalyzing or self doubt. I managed to keep both my confidence and ambivalence intact throughout the day, despite a few other odd looks and the negative commentary from one corner. Very unlike me, but in a very good way.
Negative people are without a doubt my number one pet peeve. I will never understand why some people are so driven to rip others apart. Live and let live, peeps.
The dusty blue slip dress from Oasap.com is at least partly responsible for my sartorial high today; faux silk but only $10 and a gorgeous color, it's lightweight and will likely be layered beneath most of my dresses and many of my skirts this summer. It also comes in apricot and pink, both of which I am seriously considering also adding to my collection. I'm thinking any one of them would be absolutely perfect underneath a sheer, lacey dress like this one (also from Oasap.com).
Definitely time for bed now; don't forget to leave some advice on hair extensions in the comments, and if you have any thoughts on fun ways to style my blue slip dress, do share.
I get around. check out this post on:
