My So Called Life



Outfit Details:
Joie Kaylie Leather Jacket (c/o)
American Apparel babydoll dress
Zac Posen x Illesteva cat eye sunglasses
Hat Attack hat

"So when Rayanne Graff told me my hair was holding me back, I had to listen. 'Cause she wasn't just talking about my hair. She was talking about my life."

I've never been one to take my hair very seriously, but it's an obvious tell for when I'm going through something crazy. I'm that stereotypical girl who goes out and makes a major change in her hair when things have gone awry. Something about getting control back, yadda yadda yadda. I chopped off my locks earlier in the year and immediately, everyone started asking what was wrong. But that's the point in cutting it off, you know? I don't want to talk about it; I want to deal with it on my own and this is how I do it. It's funny how it becomes a symbolic ritual, something as silly as cutting your hair, changing the color. I'll probably grow it out later in the year, but I've actually been enjoying the change. And the fact that I haven't shaved it off means that things have been a lot better - that I've been better. There's only so much you can cut off before you have to grab the buzzers. And I don't think I could pull it off.

  4. You look beautiful! I really like your short hair :) I've been thinking about cutting mine lately. But I don't think I'll cut it too short...I'm too big of a chicken!

  12. I've always said that cutting off your hair is like cutting away the crap in your life/head. It's pretty telling that I am obsessed with chopping off all my hair right now :p

  14. Love this! You do a red lip so well!

    I'm not very attached to my hair either, and I'm an emotional cutter too. If anything can make me feel better, it'll be a good chop!

  17. I love that show and that quote. I just pretty drastically changed my hair. You're so right! It's helps me feel more sane, even if everyone else thinks I'm insane for doing it.

  18. I'm a major change, major cut kinda girl too! But the last few years I've grown it out to donate to make actual calculated major cuts. I do it mostly because I looove the excitement of big change and a new look! What can I say, I live for a good makeover!

  20. I have short hair and everyone keeps asking me why I keep it short/ why don't I grow it out. First off, my hair won't grow. Second, what is this need for long hair? Is long hair beautiful and my short hair isn't? Too much pressure over hair. I don't like it.

  23. I'm the same way with my hair. Recently, my boyfriend of 4 years and I broke up, and I went from just past my shoulders to a pixie cut. The last two serious relationships i was in, i went crazy with colour after they ended.
    i didn't notice the correlation before, but i have recently.
    hope all is well :)

  24. Such a lovely outfit <3
    I've been wishing for a change with my hair, too... I'm not allowed to color it but I've grown out my bangs and cut it shorter and it makes me feel like I've moved on as a person, strange as that is!

  27. I kinda really love the short hair on you. I'm really glad you haven't pulled a Britney because I don't think even she could pull it off.

  32. Ah, My So-Called Life was my favourite show when I was younger, and it still holds a special place in my heart. So loving this outfit- the '90s inspiration is great! Floral prints with leather jackets is my favourite look! xo

  35. My kinda style. You look great. Lovin' the new 'do. And, um, I've never watched "My So Called Life". Yikes. Heard great thangs about the show but, yeah, never piqued my interest so much as to watch the show. Maybe I should give it a try.
