Remember when I said I’d go back to purple hair someday?
THAT DAY WAS YESTERDAY. And it is awesome. Have a look-see:
I asked the hairdresser to do streaks, but this type of hair dye is semi-permanent and it bleeds so bad, it’s hard to see the streaks. There’s some blonde, some white (because of the toner), some brown underneath and quite a bit of purple. I love it! Although, I think I’ll do more of a complete cover when I touch it up in a few weeks. Also, I totally match the bath pouf in the right-hand corner. AWESOME.
My hair is growing out nicely and almost at the length I like it. I might keep it this length or just a tad longer; I can put it up in a ponytail right now but it’s still got a lot of short bits. You can see the streaks a bit better here, although it is not that pink in real life:
Believe it or not, with all that excitement, I even found time for some sewing. Given my bad track record with skirts lately, I opted to do a muslin of Simplicity 2152, the midi length:
That fabric is a flannel that I bought for pajama bottoms and it wound up way too pilled and scratchy when I washed it. It was kicking around in stash until I decided to use it for muslins. Don’t worry, I don’t plan on wearing this out of the house! The skirt actually fits nicely, but I’m holding it together in back in lieu of a zipper. I think I’m going to do the shorter length, though, as this midi length really screams dowdy to me. Well, maybe that’s the black socks.
