Weekly Wears: From the Heart

Dress: vintage;  Sweater: hand-me-down;  Tights: ASOS;  Shoes: c/o ShoeMint;  Brooch: c/o Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree;  Glasses: c/o BonLook (Bonnie & Clyde in Mystic Blue)

I've had this serious urge to cut my hair off lately.  I think I'm just needing a change, but whatever the reason, I know myself well enough to know this is a bad idea!  I love short hair on other people, but I always find an up-do that works for my short hair and wear it like that until it grows out (which takes a looooonnnnnggggg time).  So, for now I'm tricking myself by wearing my hair up everyday.  Maybe it's time for some new bangs or fancy hair accessories.  ;)

I'm starting to get a full roster of custom animals rolling in and I can't wait to share some of the things I'm working on.  One is Cinderella inspired and so precious!

  2. I adore that dress! I managed to buy something similar at a vintage fair recently & the colours are making me lust for summer weather. The tights & cardigan are gorgeous with yours.

    Looking lovely :)

  10. Gorgeous! I know what you mean about short hair, I always manage to trick myself into thinking 'this time will be different, I'll love it' and then I want my long hair back after a day...that's what happened this time anyway :)

  11. That dress is adorable, I love the combination of all the springy colors. I've been going through the same thing with my hair. I've experiment a little with faux bobs. But mostly I have to remind myself that I can't cut it, not matter how cut I think it should look.

  12. Ooh! I love that gorgeous dress, and it looks great on you! <3

    I'm definitely guilty of cutting my hair shorter when should leave it longer. :-P I'm just so fickle! Luckily I've never cut it TOO short.

  15. Maybe try changing your hair a different way, like maybe just a different style cut while keeping it long, or meet in the middle and do a medium cut? I would say you could dye it but your red hair is so pretty!

  18. I go through cycles of growing my hair out really long and then chopping it all off. I always regret chopping it off after a few days. ;) Love those tights!

  20. I am the same way with my hair! But I always wear it up, so I should probably just cut it. Ha. But the updo looks great on you!

    Can't wait to see the animals!

  21. I do the same thing. Whenever I cut my hair, I always, always always decide I want my hair long again after about 3 weeks of short hair. Then I end up hating it while it's in the in between stage where it's not short enough to really look cute and not long enough to look intentionally long.

  22. Love the colors on the dress :) simply darling

  23. Ah, love the brooch! And your hair. I'm the opposite. I always want to grow mine out...knowing full well that it's fine and limp and I'll just cut it off. Remember those playdough toys where you could push the dough through the head to make the hair grow back in seconds? Sigh.

  24. Don't do it! I always get that itch this time of year, and every time I follow through with it I spend the next 8 months to a year whining about my hair. Plus, you've got such lovely locks, it'd be a shame to wack em off.

    Your outfit is darling, as well.

  26. Super cute outfit, I love the cardi!

  27. I think that you are one of those people who could literally have any color and cut of hair and still look amazing!!

    I keep having this dream I cut my hair into a pixie cut and dye it blonde (my hair is as long as yours and brunette). However, I am pregnant and that could def. be the hormones talking-plus I have heard never to make major hair changes while pregnant?! who knows!

    Good luck with whatever hair change or accessory purchase you go with ;)

  29. You're not alone! I totally know the "wouldn't it be awesome if I cute all my hair off" feeling. I am scared that one day I will give into it because I know (from experience) that I would regret it.

  30. Love your outfit!!! P.S I'm waiting for my hair to grow. It takes forever :(

  32. I love this dress and cardi combo.

    As for the hair- I'm feeling the need for a change too! But I have convinced myself to wait until after my wedding. Of course, then there will be so many changes maybe I won't cut my hair after all!

  33. short hair is definitely coming back... at least here in CA it is... a cute,long 60s bob with bangs chopped across (i'm thinking Krysten Ritter in Life Happens) could definitely be a cute look on you! love the dress! thanks for posting!

  34. I thought I was alone on having the urge to cut my hair. But like you then I end up regretting going to short because its hard to style it. So Im being strong too and keeping it long.Maybe I will get some long layers later on. Your tights are so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You look lovely! I too have been feeling the urge to cut my hair off, but I know I'd regret it so Ive had to make due with wearing it up all the time.

  39. That dress is just so adorable! It looks so amazing on you! I have been feeling the short hair urge lately too, but I'm resisting because my hair is the longest it has been in forever.
