New Do




When Jon and I were engaged, I bleached my hair platinum. It lasted for a few months, until we had to get engagement photos taken, at which point I opted to dye it back. Since then, I've always wondered about/wanted to be a blonde again for a short stint. But, over-analysis always tabled it. "I'm too old"/"too stable"/"too worried about what people will think..." UNTIL....this winter. In the beginning of February, I decided that I'm sick of taking life too seriously, so I called to make the appointment. I couldn't get in for 3 weeks, and almost changed my mind a time or two, but I went ahead with it. Here's a little evidence, in case you're curious. And I don't pretend to think this looks better than the natural. I'm not about looking "better" anymore. Aren't we good enough however we want to be? I just want to feel like me.

These are all self-portraits...in the last photo, I'm trying on my new sunglasses (matte grey) that will be on Darlybird soon. Yes, sunglasses and lots of them on Darlybird. More on that later.
