Platinum Blonde Life

I always want to change my hair...but I've wanting to bleach it blonde for a long time now. I've asked some people's opinions, and most people say it wouldn't suit me, and a couple people saying it would be sexy as hell. I've sort of just gotten to the point that I feel like raising my middle finger to everyone and just go for it.  I've been looking at hair porn for the past three weeks...and I only want to do it more. The only thing holding me back at this point? I'm scared to death of damaging my hair. I've been doing my research, and heard horror stories of hair snapping mid-shaft. Snapping. But I have heard that bleach and peroxide affect different hair differently, and what I really need to do is go to a salon and have an assessement of my hair done. Here are some pics of what I have in mind...minus the slutty vibe that you'll probably get from a couple of them...

Summer Staples

Summer is well on it's way, and as I'm gradually building a tan, I'm excited to start wearing some paler clothing.  In my past days of being freakishly white, dark colors really popped against my skin. Blacks, navys, and jewel tones really contrasted gorgeously with the pasty-white tone of my skin. I rarely wear white, because it tends to blend right in to my skin and it looks like I'm wearing nothing at all. I'm kidding, of course, but only a little. Of course if you're pale you can wear light clothing, just as if you have a darker skin tone you can wear darker clothing. But for summer, when even the most porclean-toned skin develops into a half a shade darker, it's really time for the pale clothing to come out. This summer, I'm thinking color, and a lot of it. Mixing pastels with neons is the best idea I think I've had for a while, and if I mix in my other current summer inspirations (crochet, castaway, studs, etc) I think it could really pop. Let me show you what I'm thinking :

And I have this tacky/amazing idea with Sharpies. Sharpie art. Everywhere. On jean cutoffs. On white tshirts. On walls. On cups. On Mugs. On furniture. Say what you want to say, and say it with a Sharpie. That should be a commercial.
Paradise Circus by Massive Attack is what I'm listening to currently...it's sexy as hell and gets me in the creative mood!

For Love For Literature

I'm sitting on my bed, eating generic honey comb cereal out of a vintage aqua tumbler. Splenda on top. I just have a couple inspiration pictures for today, nothing too over the top. The first picture is from the amazing Pamela Love's F2011 collection. I am in love with this hair. It's like this grungy, surfer-castaway kind of look. And the earrings are to die for. I need some Pamela Love in my life. I'm not sure where the second picture came from, all I know is that it's the lovely Karlie Kloss modeling in this editorial. The colors are beautiful and the dress is like a sea urchin on crack. The water looks so cold, but the lush green hill behind it is beyond gorgeous. The third picture is just vintage and gorgeous. Look how short the dress is, look how white her hair is. I'm really craving this whole white hair thing...

Sort of a boring post for today, but I haven't been able to get these images out of my mind all day long.  I'll be doing a wishlist/Spring staples checklist within the next couple days, and I promise that will be more interesting!

No One's Gonna Love You

If you've never heard Band of Horses No One's  Gonna Love You, please go do that right now. It's a gorgeous, magical song, and it stays in my head the entire day long...truly a beautiful song. Cee Lo Green did a lovely cover, and the video was made with blogger Jenny Sirney from A Gemini Rising and her photographer boyfriend Jason Lee Parry. This music video is one of the best I've ever seen...I want to live that like. I think I'll forgo this whole college idea and just drive around the country. Yes, that's a smart idea. Also, I want her hair.
