Hair & Shakuhachi
If you follow me on twitter you would have seen last night that I dyed my hair back to my natural dark blonde that I haven't seen since I was about 13 years old. I acted out of a mixture of boredom and frustration at my hair and its never ending roots needing to be coloured at a costly $160 per salon visit. I regretted it as soon as I saw it though. It doesn't help that I'm also in the process of growing out my fringe as it just didn't work in the heat and humidity of Sydney. So I'm testing out a new asymmetric hair style, which is actually pretty easy to do. Essentially I'm dealing with crap growing out hair and a bad colour. Yes there were tears. Anyway this morning I woke up and with no choice but to get on with life bad hair or not and decided to try to cheer myself up by wearing out my new Shakuhachi dress, bought on sale at their Paddington store for $130. I pretty much love it, the perfect babydoll shape that suits me, plus the different denim panels and the pockets give it that edge that I'm always after. I wore my Estelle Deve Somni necklace and my new Rubi Shoes buckle wedges I bought for $39.
The wedges had their wedge heel come off the shoe after just one wear, which I was not happy about at all. Yes they are cheap shoes, but cheap shoes should last longer than one wear no? Anyway they didn't have the style left to exchange with so I went and paid $30 for them to be re-glued. So essentially my cheap $39 shoes became not so cheap $69 shoes. That being said they are the most comfortable wedges I own so to me it was all worth it, as long as it doesn't happen again that is!
