tuesday at the office

I'm sitting here trying to yank out my hair (almost literally) because it's so bushy and gross. And I still have no idea what I'm growing it out to be. If anyone has any ideas please share. My twin took a photo of the back of me today during our quick 2 minute photo shoot and I nearly had a stroke when I saw what was going on from behind.






striped blazer ~ F21 (love this as it's unlined and super light so it's like a blouse which is perfect on a day like today when it's HOT - and was $7.99)
tank ~ American Apparel (men's)
palazzo-like long bermudas? ~ H&M (super old)
open-toe pumps ~ Spring (my wedding shoes)
necklaces ~ gifts growing up from Italian relatives (my baby ring and bracelet are too small so they're hooked on the necklace)
bangles ~ Heavens to Betsy
rings ~ F21

Hi Kim, since you're so brave about hair, and you've shaved it, have you thought about a pixie cut? You could experiment with color if you wanted a change. You have the perfect oval-shaped face for it!

hey babe back in the day when i dressed cute for corporate America, i had an outfit very similar, with shoes almost exactly the same. i love your modern take with the black toe nail polish. i so wish we lived close together, i'd love to play make up and hair with you. here's my suggestion (for what it's worth with your hair, but you have to decide so you are comfortable):

i do think you look prettier with the hair not shaven, although i understand the comfort of the shaven look. have you seen Jenny McCarthy's fabulous new do? if not, i have a photo i can share with you. do you have a flat iron? i would suggest ironing at least the front part of your hair. i love the look of my hair ironed, but a lot of the time i'm too friggin' lazy. you look like you are anything but lazy in your looks.

one other thing is what about some color chunking? what about a fat piece of bleach blonde in the front? or some ombre treatment with red tips or even a stripe of pink or purple? please contact me if you want to talk further about your hair or makeup. i'm actually kinda good at sorta thing, and as you know i love girly with an edge.

i'll be following to see what you decide. actually planning to post some pics of my hair soon on my blog. i'll let you know when. continue being fabulous!!! xo

I think I may be over really short hair. I've had some variation of pixie and everything short in between for the past 15 years or so.

hey Peggy - would love to see that photo you have of JMcC. (email me @ desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com)
i have a flat iron but find my cut is so overgrown now that doing it curly looks alot better
as for colour I usually just do highlights in blonde and brown - low maintenance and always works with my hair.
THX!



Peggy said...

yeah kim, i also do the highlights and find it's much easier, lasts longer, i have several pictures i hope to email to you today, been so crazy busy, but its' on my list. need to link to this blog on my blog, i love love love this blog and adore your sister as well. my blog needs so much friggin' updating, ah so little time......

Extensions and dye it darker. Enough already with the fake blond!

Hey Kim - have you thought about a fab blunt cut...? Straight hair is coming back, but even if you don`t feel like flat ironing, a good cut will still work. (michele - ottawa alterna)



kim. said...

fake blond? ya but I AM BLOND. darker is a bit odd in the summer but i'll think about it. the thought of extensions scare me. don't know anyone with them so no clue what it does to your real hair, where to get them/cost etc.

...i figured if I'm out of ideas i could just go with a bob - blunt would be cool. when my hair is straight i often flat iron it a bit because i have subtle kinks here and there in super annoying places, so i'm not opposed to a bit of ironing.

i wonder what it would look like with bangs. i haven't had bangs in.....20-25 years? i don't even know....
