with that 1920’s flair

Blame it on all that buzz about the new Great Gatsby movie, or the fact that my haircut had finally reached that really annoying in between phase (doubled when you have an asymmetrical haircut!), I knew it was time to go for it and just get that haircut!

What’s amazing is that because I have had this blog for so long (!) I can go back into my archives and pinpoint the time when my hair was last this short – with reference to this post, it seems to be early 2009. Since my hair is naturally curly, I thought I’d see how it would look with bouncy set of curls. And I actually really like it! I need to figure out how to do fingerwaves next!

Since I already was channeling the 20’s, I thought dressing up with a nautical touch would also be fun!

Top: Saint James thrifted (a cute short sleeve version here!). Pants: Zara slacks. Shoes: Rachel Comey from Wasteland.

I also got to wear this outfit with my vintage red blazer, but none of those pictures came out for some reason! I only have this close up shot – but glad I was able to capture my cute Sally Hansen salon effects strips manicure :)

I can’t believe that two months ago I had long mermaid hair that would nearly choke me to death every day and now it’s more of a run a brush-through-it-and-go routine! I love it! I want everyone around me to get short haircuts now :)
