Cobalt Blue, How are you?
I actually bought this dress about 6 months ago at Savers but it has been languishing in my sewing basket waiting to be shortened and hemmed. Well today I finally got around to doing it spurred on by the thought of having nothing new to wear to Spring Fashion Week. I love the cobalt blue colour, it's so bright and bold.
Dress: Thrifted at Savers $9
Leggings: Thrifted at Savers $6
Belt: Thrifted at Camberwell Market $10
Shoes: Bought on sale for $65 by I love Billy
Hair Scrunchy: Gift from the Spank girls in Japan
I used to love doing this hair style, it is like the number 1 most popular style in Japan or something cos nearly every girl does it. I haven't done it in ages so I thought I may as well. I call it the "peanut style".
You may notice I need to colour my roots really badly. I was born a blonde but my hair has gotten darker as I have aged. The thing that confused me is when I used to dye my hair black it would look like I was balding because my roots looked white, and now I colour my hair blonde and my roots look black. WTF is going on? Anyway I bought a rinse to make my hair 1 shade darker to try and match my roots until I have time to get them done (My mum does it for me cos she used to be a hairdresser) but now my hair is kinda orangey...ooops. I should have just left it, oh well it only lasts 8 washes, so 8 days for me...the whole week of Fashion Week I have to have ugly orange hair. Seriously its not a good idea to change the colour of your hair before an important day or week even if it seems like a good idea it isnt!
