For reference, this is how long my hair was before:
It feels healthy, like hair and not straw! I'm really rather pleased. And it should be easier to dye now, hopefully.
To be honest, I thought about going shorter. I've been wary of very short hair because I have this ingrained notion that fat women shouldn't have short hair (stupid, I know. Fuck beauty "rules") and so I've been looking at fabulous fat women with pixie-short hair for inspiration. I don't know if I'll go there or not. I've also been thinking about getting layers, since my hair knowledge is too slim to have done that myself, but for now it's nice.
I can even put it up in a crocodile clip, which I think looks cute.
In somewhat related news, to celebrate not getting the internship I wanted (boo hiss) I've started collecting a mini corp-Goth wardrobe. This pencil skirt was $3 at Goodwill, and I paired it with a black t-shirt, lace shrug, and belt. I think I look cute, if you can excuse the horrible mirror shot.
Oh my. Pencil skirts. This one is cute but I'm intimidated by the concept. My poor ruffle-loving heart!
