grin and barrette

well kids, i couldn’t take it anymore and i cut my hair all off. well mostly off. i now officially look like a sleek, euro, super villain and that is exactly what i was going for. i’m not self absorbed enough to think you guys want pics of me so here is my inspiration:

it feels really nice to not have my mullet. if i had left it there to trail behind me like a shadow, i would have had pin it back with something. good thing barrettes are making a ginormo come back. they’ve come a long way from the pinching, pulling apparatus that moms would top with ribbons and uninflated balloons. barrettes now are sophisticated, funky and a TOP item to throw in your summer beach bag or after-work primp purse. my current style lends for the below one to work perfectly for those days when my blunt bangs just aren’t cuttin’ it.

( i have this particular barrette in bright pink and when i had long hair it was perfect for an undone/done look)

has this inspired you? me too. i did some digging and looky here at some fun etsy finds. if you don’t snatch it up. i will. oh yeah and i made a rule long ago never to wear feathers in my hair because birds are modern day disgusting dinosaurs and i don’t support them, faux or no.
