Hipster Bangs

Thursday, March 5, 2015

So the other night I decided that after I dyed my hair pink (woo finally all pink!) that I would give my bangs a slight trim. However, while trimming them I decided that I might as well make them higher and see how I like myself with some of those high on the forehead bangs. I must admit, I was quite apprehensive after making the first cut, but for being my first time cutting my own bangs I think I did quite a bang up job. Excuse the pun, I couldn't help myself. And while I don't know if the high bang is my new signature thing, I'm stuck with them either way now, and I don't mind them at all.

I was quite afraid that this dress was a bit too large for me, it is quite baggy either way, but I think I made it work. I'm quite sad that Forever 21 doesn't make most their clothes in a size extra small. More diverse sizing is needed in many stores for many sizes though, so I guess it's kind of a moot point. Why can't things just all be made in sizes xs-4x? Or something like that. I guess it's an unreasonable request, but one can dream.

Clothes aside, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous here lately. It feels like spring has come to the Pacific North West and I am eating it up. Even though it's been chilly out, the sun has been shining and that's what makes me happy. Sadly it does mean Michael has been working more. Not that the money is sad, but I'd rather be broke and have more time with him than sitting pretty and being lonely. I know that may be foolish, but the second he's gone I miss him, so I'm pretty selfish with my time with him.


  1. Your hair looks lovely, it suits you and your dress is too pretty.

  2. Love the bangs! I always cut mine pretty short - but mostly so I have more time before I have to trim them again! haha every time I trim them it comes out differently - some days all it takes is 2 minutes and they're perfect. Others, it takes me 10min or more because i did a hack job and have a lot to fix! haha practice practice practice! =)

    In a Nutshell...

    1. Haha yes! Since it was my first time, they took me like 10 minutes and then every now and then I'd pop back in front of the mirror to trim a little more! And less frequent trims are for sure nicer!

  3. This outfit reminds me of a modern-day Cinderella! Maybe because I just watched the trailer for the new Cinderella, but... also the colors and all. And I like the high bangs! I think they showcase your eyes and fantastic brows more, and work really well with your face shape in general! You are just so gorgeous!

    1. I would love to be Cinderella and will be compared to her any time at all!

      Thank you for the hair compliment! I got this really weird comment on this photo when I put it on Tumblr...something like, "I love your outfit and your hair, but it doesn't look good on your face." It seemed contradictory to me, but it made me self conscious all the same. So thank you very, very much.
