Brown Town

I know, weird post title. I've never really been good at those things. Ha! Does anyone watch Tim and Eric? Rolo Tony Brown Town was the first thing that popped into my head when I was thinking of a "brown" title. But anyways..so here I am! No longer a blonde, ready to never dye my hair again! Well, I say that now.. but thats also what I said two years ago when I was pretty much at my natural color and then I decided it was boring and I wanted to be blonde again. But this time im serious. What an experience it was last night, FOUR hours it took to do my hair. Not only did a lot of work have to be put into it in order to get it all pretty much one even color (a good couple of inches at my ends are kind of dead, but I refused to cut it) but I also got my hair done at the stylists home, so there was a bit of a rotation going on between the other ladies and myself.
Ali came along with me to keep me company, thanks so much for hanging around for so long girl! It was a bit crazy at first, because Jean, who cut my hair, is very professional and really wanted me to get a trim, she just did not think the color would take to the ends of my hair. But it was something I was willing to do anyways because I really do not want to cut my hair. So she said she would dye it and see how it came out before cutting anything off.
But we were all pleasantly surprised when my hair turned out pretty damn even, so I got out without the haircut but I agreed to come back in three weeks to get a trim, and I will.. it was just too much change all in one day. Im quite attached to my length, ya know? I really dig this color though, but I wanted to start it off dark like this so that it can fade a bit and my natural sun highlights can come out in the summer. I will also be happy to not have to keep up with roots anymore! yay new hair color!

This top I recently got on etsy, I cant wait to wear it in the summer, like every day. Im a sucker for cropped tops! the wrap around skirt was my mothers, one of the few things she saved and I now own. By the looks of the 4 or so things of my mothers I have, you would think she was a huge hippie. But she was definitely a rock n' roller for sure.
Tights are from the Gap, and as you can see from the behind photo, I put a rip in them putting them on today. Damnit! I just got these, second time wearing them. Are there any simple solutions for stopping a rip from getting bigger? So upset.
And the clogs are thrifted. Totally loving these to death!

Oh and hey! If ya wanna see a street style shot of me from Friday when I went into the city, click here! Thanks to the few folks who pointed this out to me!

i love it! it really softens your features going back to your natural colour its not boring at all its taken me a long time to accept my natural hair colour (same as yours and wrecked it just as many times im sure) but think about it dark dirty blonde is anything but boring ;) x x x

if you get a little hole in your stockings you can put clear nailpolish around the edges, and it stops it from getting any bigger. it might work with a bigger hole too...perhaps.

those clogs are such a good thrift find!

BABE ALERT! You could have no hair whatsoever and you'd still be incredibly lovely. Love the crop top!

It looks amazing! It suits you so much better, not that it looked bad before :)

Dulcie said...

Hair looks pretty and clear nail varnish will prevent the ladder from getting any worse :) xx

pretty pretty hair! and i can imagine being attached to your length! it takes a lonnnng time to grow hair out and sometimes those stylists do get scissor happy!

Courtney Brooke said...

Love it, the whole thing! Nail polish or hairspray is good at stopping a run. Also as cheese ball as this sounds I know you said in your previous post you where looking for tights like that.. I have a bunch with dots and I typically find them at the all evil walmart.. they have a pretty decent tight section.. so there you go.. xo

PS I can't wait to have a march rompus !

Rosie said...

Your hair looks great! Bummer dude about the tights--- clear nailpolish is supposed to stop the run, I've never bothered with it myself. Your mom's skirt looks awesome with those clogs!

Amanda B said...

OH MY GOD!!!! I've been following your blog for a few months now and have never commented. And when I read your blog title and then the "I'm not good at titles" I thought *sigh* she isn't referencing Tim and Eric. And then I read the next sentence!!! I LOVE Tim and Eric. And love that you love them, too! Especially OG stuff like the Rolo Tony Brown Town bit, hahaha. Check your self, at the door, gimme some more, gimme some more of those rolos. Good times. Lovely outfit : )

Your hair looks lovely and strangely I am finding the hole in your tights really adds something to the outfit. I don't know, maybe I like it because it diverts attention to those awesome shoes?

The only way I know to slow a hole down is any form of glue/lacquer. Frey stopper or clear nail polish for instance. But those will only last one wear. It really depends on the tights/luck. Some rip all the way in seconds, others can have a small hole for months and it never turns into a ladder.

love the new hair color! it looks amazing :)

per usual, the outfit is flawless. i love how you always effortlessly rock long skirts.

the hair looks amazing you babe! i really love the natural colour. i've gone back to my natural as well and i plan on letting my hair grow out, grey streak and all! hooray for no more harmful chemicals!

also that top is to die for. i would go with the clear nail polish idea for stopping tights the freys.
