I don’t usually feel the need to announce changes to my hair because they happen approximately every ten seconds. I get it trimmed frequently, cut often, and colored every couple of months, so it’s constantly in flux. However, I recently spent one full day as a copper redhead with blonde highlights (photo evidence over on Facebook), realized the color was amazing but clashed with my complexion, and went back to the salon in a panic for a brown wash over the red. There’s still a lot of lovely red in there, and the color changes a little bit each time I wash it, but it looks nothing like the original copper. I’m much happier with the revised color! read more

I feel like I’ve said this about a jillion times: Even though red is my absolute, all-time favorite color to see AND wear, I don’t own or wear as many red pieces as I’d like to. For ages, my only red pullover was a merino crewneck that didn’t quite work with skirts, so I was delighted to find this slightly shorter scoopneck. And I took the opportunity to mix other reds and red-based colors into my ensemble. read more

My back has been acting up again, so I’m going to try to limit my heels-based outfits a bit until it calms down again. Thank goodness I’ve some great pairs of flat boots to tide me over. Those of you with chronic back pain, does it exhaust you? I slept really well last night, but felt spectacularly tired all day today. read more
