Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!  I'm debuting my shorter locks as promised, in a flapper-ish ensemble-- how apropos!  One of the best pieces of advice I've ever read is, if you're planning on switching up your hairstyle, or you really want the stylist to "get" what you're going for, the best course of action is to come to the appointment dressed in the mode of the style you're going for. 

Sweater:  thrifted.  Polka-dot Tights: Target.  Shoes:  MIA.  Beyond wrinkled Dress/Slip:  F21.  Bow:  Me-made.

I hate doing this extreme and corny a close-up of myself but I really am loving my little bow necklace that I made out of the discarded hem of a dress that I tore into strips and braided.

What's next?  I point into the horizon, or check the time with an exaggerated sweep of my watch-wearing arm?

And here, a peep at these cloisonne key earrings that I actually wear quite a lot, but now they will actually get a chance of being seen now that my hair's a little shorter. 

Speaking of peeps, Easter really snuck up on me this year.  It may be the first time that I haven't done anything with my family, or my Sweets'.  I slept with the window open last night, too, and I think I made myself sick that way so even if there were jelly beans or Peeps to be had, they wouldn't likely stay down, anyway.  I'm reminded of the following song by one of my favorite but oft-overlooked Nineties bands--

I'll have to rectify this missing-of-Easter business soon...

Oh I love your hair!!
I never considered dressing to help my stylist capture the hair cut I would like, I'll have to try that next time!

Hope you feel better and are able to enjoy some easter candy!

I love your hair. Love it all. Those earrings are darling.

Seeing cute little short hair cuts is making me even more desperate to chop all my locks off. I'm certain it will be the best for my over dyed and well abused hair.

I absolutely love the short hair! And that is a GREAT piece of advice. I am totally going to dress appropriately next time I go in for a big hair change.

And the details of this look are beautiful. The earrings and the necklace especially!

Thanks all for your comments!

GeekGirl: I would definitely recommend it. I first went short after a series of disastrous bleachings and never looked back!

Christen: Thanks for admiring my handiwork! I will try and trot this thing out more regularly. ;D
