Ombré Hair. Another addition to the color spectrum

In case you haven't noticed, Ombré hair is in. You may be asking, what is ombre? Well, its like a gradient. A gently fading from one color to the next. It can be applied to water colors, dyed fabrics, and now. . . HAIR. You may look at this and say "What Tha Hair?" It looks like she has horrible roots. My reply to that is "EXACTLY!!" How edgy is that.  You spend lots of money to look fashionably rebellious. I LIKE IT!!  What would one say about this treatment in the land of cheerleading, where roots are criticized?

And you know what.  Normal ombre hair just isn't good enough anymore.  So we will venture into the land of Colorful Ombre hair!!! JUMP FOR JOY AT ALL THE COLORS!!!! Yippee!!!

So, What do you think so far?! You WANT MORE!!?? GREAT!

Pick your color, and go for it.  
I know you want to.
I will be sure to post it as soon as it happens. 

Did you see what I did just then? hehe


Hopefully we never grow too old to play dress up.

 Why Ello'. Today I thought I would share with you a fondness I have for dressing up.  This is a slight history lesson of my cousin and I's relationship that is more similar to a sisterly bond.  Now, luckily for you, Its not a boring history lesson. I HAVE PICTURES!!! party. So it all began, most likely, with the amount of time we spent together.  When two little girls get bored of playing barbies for five hours, what is left to do? Well, the answer includes: 
A. Build a fort.
B. Go outside and seek adventure in the wild
C. Swim
D. Play dress-up
Since the other options are not as readily available due to inclement weather or lack of parent cooperation,  the majority of the time we found ourselves knee deep in tulle, sparkles, makeup, and accessories. We even made some videos that tended to get pretty involved. Here goes the story.

Here is me. I am all dressed up during my final critique for senior project. It was a happy day that felt like that last day before graduation in high school. You are so joyful and excited, but you realize that you and your classmates are about to go separate ways.  Change is in the air. Bittersweet Symphony plays in your headphones, as you breathe in a breath of courage to face the unknown without the comfort of the surroundings you inhabited for the previous four years. . . thats what it felt like

This is Tori and I playing dress up. She was a hollywood star, and I was her jungle cat.  I am pretty sure I tried to get her to be the pet cat, since she was four years younger and significantly smaller, but it just would not have been Tori to say yes to something like that.

Now we are much older, and can coordinate colors and fabrics much more successfully. We did, in fact, take the time out of our day to drag all of this supplies into the woods to do this. There was absolutely no point, other than to end up with a set of forrest pictures.  I mean, cmon', surely by now you all KNOW how much I love a good tree.

TREE ALERT!!! I am proud to say, that the tree in this picture is in my backyard. It was supposed to be the location of a treehouse that my dad was going to build for my brother and I, but he never got around to it.  He did, however fix up so many swings, that one (such as myself) could never grow tired of the options gracefully hanging from the limbs.



Heather is a ballerina in the park.

Im unaware if I have already mentioned my current senior project about ballet.  In case you didn't see my various pictures of ballerinas in a field, I will inform you that I have been spending this entire semester working on my final show for graphic design. It is called "The Pointe"and it explains the benefits of ballet.  I have been fortunate enough to have beautiful friends who didn't object to putting on old ballet costumes and some pointe shoes and modeling for me.  This is Heather. She is featured on my poster about "Grace". Do NOT FRET! You will see all that soon enough. . . patience young grasshopper. 


Propensity to Procrastinate.

So. . . I should be writing my 10 page research paper on Peruvian textiles, but didn't you just get bored reading that? yea. I cringe when I glance over at my stack of plain, red, 1940's books about the textiles from Peru. Since I am procrastinating, I am using this time to imagine myself in some awesome 2006 Balenciaga wedges and pink hair. :) I will tackle the paper soon enough. I will tell myself I am learning something and become an intelligent art critic by writing this paper. Eventually I will find that interesting. . . Here are the things that are currently distracting me.

The Balenciaga harness wedge. Price unknown. Ebay price is times three of whatever the unknown price is due to impossibility of finding them. Via 2006 runway. 

The Sam Edelman harness wedge. $200 on amazon. . . 

Pink hair inspired or from Charlotte Ronson runway.

Balenciaga or Sam Edelman? I honestly think its the latter. I know she owns the Balenciaga pair, but how long can a shoe last on an Olsen twin? 

I should probably wear this to my senior show. . .
