Chris says that hair isn't a body part because if you cut it off, you won't die. I disagree. It grows from your head, it's a body part. And, while you may not die by cutting it off, I know I'm not the only one here who has experienced the post-haircut meltdown where you realize your brilliant "shag" is actually just a mullet (true story). So today is day three (for me, 4 for other's) of Dress Your Best Week, and if you haven't figured it out already, one of my favorite parts of myself is my hair! I have always had fun with my hair- at least when I wasn't sobbing over a bad cut/color decision- and I actually used to work reception at Chris' mom's salon back in New Hampshire. Working at the salon, I met some amazing girls, it was so fun to be around creative people who loved their jobs, and of course I learned a lot about styling my own hair! I've always gone back and forth about attending hair school, someday maybe I will! One of these days I really want to do a post about all the styles I've had, maybe once I get my scanner set up.
I went with a decidedly 1970's vibe with my outfit, because I thought it worked with my big, kind-of-feathered hair. I got this amazing Lolita t-shirt from ModCloth. These Out of Print shirts have been making the rounds in the blog world lately, and for good reason, they're so comfortable! Like that perfect 1970's worn-in t-shirt of your father's (minus the holes and axel grease). I chose the Lolita print because it's a v-neck which is more flattering on me, but also because it's my all-time favorite book (I may or may not be harboring a stolen copy of Lolita and Valley of the Dolls from my hometown library...I'll never tell...). What is your favorite book?
