I haven't been thinking about my style lately, just how to keep warm, and thus there haven't been many outfit posts. I am kind of just watching a lot of movies -- I watched Stealing Beauty last night, and was reminded how my ideal person is Liv Tyler mixed with Eva Green, but then that ideal person would be too perfect to even acknowledge my existence probably. Anyway. 

Now that I'm thinking about how to dress for when the weather gets colder, I'm kind of excited for the challenge. I mean it would be really easy to dress in dark velvet and tights and big chunky scarves, and I will probably do so a lot, but I am very happy with where I am style wise, with a restricted palette of white and red and black and silver, leather and white cotton and black mohair. It's my favorite thing, really, that limited selection of texture and color. I'm going to try to find a way to make only a few pieces last me the entire winter, in different combinations, and I'll have to go hunting for good basic things that will match what I already have. Finding perfect basics at a thrift store is hard!! I guess that's what Zara and H&M is for, but I don't really shop anywhere but Goodwill and I don't feel like making the trek to a mall to deal with the bustle just for a shirt, you know?

And I'm about to chop my hair off and/or bleach it, I haven't really decided what I'm going to do with it, I just need a change. I haven't cut my hair in over a year and it's just ridiculous. Toying with the idea of bleaching it and being all purple again, but I dread the upkeep and don't mind roots ... I'm  just not ready to let go of purple, which will probably happen if I just chop it off the way I kind of want to do. There is something liberating in cutting my hair drastically, it just shreds up the femininity in me. The prettiest thing about me is my hair I think, and when I cut it off the very first time and dyed it I felt like a new person. That is one of my favorite things to feel, like I have a new start. But I can't decide if I want a new start or not. I like where I am, I am happy, it is a quiet happiness, but it's still something better than boredom.  Sometimes I can't tell if I'm happy or not or if I'm just waiting for something else. You know that feeling?

sigh winter, I'm going into summer and it's already horrible :( I'm also thinking of changing my hair and dying some of it pink maybe. I should probably get a job first though, don't want my hair to potentially scare off employers, meh. I like the description of the perfect person haha. Reminds me of when I had a dream dude... he would have violet eyes and some other impossible features.
