I finally did it. My hair is now 50 shades of purple and I love it!!! Since I already bleached my hair, I think I will stay with light shades for now.

For the past week, Los Angeles has been stuck with this unbearable heat. This romper is pppppppeeeeeeerfect for mindless dressing during hot summer days (yes in LA, October is warmer than June or July). The print reminds me of the dresses my mom would make me wear in the 90’s to compensate for my boyish hair cut. Floral prints tend to be stuck for spring and summer only but you can make this work for fall with the right accessories. You can wear this with a pair of grey over the knee socks, boots, and a cable knit cardigan for colder weather and it still wouldn’t look out of place.

Dilemma: Purple Colored Hair

Since Fall 2013 I’ve been considering dying my hair pastel purple. I thought it would be the ultimate sexy man repeller that will make any outfit I wear look edgy. Sweatpants, Nike frees and a white shirt: basic bitch. But with purple hair? Edgy-That-Doesnt-Give-A-Fuck.

Just as I waited too long to buy a pair of jogger pants, I think I procrastinated way too long to dye my hair. My coworker Greg is out sick today because of a sciatic nerve injury of some sort. As he sits on his bed with his smart phone in hand, killing time, instastalking relaxing, he has been tagging me on photos of Asian girls with multicolored hair. I realized, I have hit the end of a trend. If I dye my hair now I will look like every other surfbort Beyonced out azn’s 😦 The edgy look is now basic. And the Normal look is now Edgy. But is wanting to be Normal…for the sake of being edgy…edgy?

King, my boyfriend begs wants me to dye my hair purple. He says I will look very hot with it. But is he excited with how I will look? or how the purple hair makes me look. The purple hair gives out an illusion, that he is going out with a certain type of chick.

Greg points out that everyone now is basic, so we should just be us. Me being me, if I want to dye my hair candy colored I should still do it and not to compare myself to instafamous people (my friend is very supportive of my fashion choices).

Still thinking about it. I thought writing it all down would help me decide. It just made me even more confused.

Speaking of hair challenges, please help my friend Carol (model in the photo) and her hairstylist Vu Nguyen win the favorite beachy hair challenge by Salon Magazine. Candy colored hair and a wavy bob, deserves your vote 😉

Take 2

I’ve worn this outfit countless of times, and even blogged about it 2 years ago. I’m posting it again on my blog because of these awesome photos Greg Hector took of me during a break at work. He likes pit bulls, camping, fruity drinks, Volkswagen’s, anything vintage, anything in black or grey – you should stalk him on instagram: http://instagram.com/based_lavenderr.
