style: kid at heart

July 7th, 2010

There are a couple of things I wanted when I was a little girl.

Roughly in order of priority, I wanted it to be Halloween every week.  I wanted a boyfriend like Jordan Catalano.  A prom dress like the girl in the Milk commercials (does anyone else remember this?!)  Minature plastic doll accessories from the American Girl catalogue that cost $1 zillion dollars… my poor parents.

In addition to that list, I really, really used to want to dye my hair a crazy color.  I wanted blue hair, pink hair, rainbow hair.  Basically, I wanted to be this guy.

So when I passed through a store that sold clip on Manic Panic hair extensions, needless to say, I was pretty excited.  Unfortunately, I think people would freak if I were to dye my whole head pink nowadays, so I bought this little blue clip for the days that I want to feel a little closer to my inner rainbow-haired self.  Now I just need to head back to the store to buy every other color they have…. and that crazy fuscia prom dress.

Last but not least, I had to figure out what clothes would be sufficiently awesome to match a streak of blue hair.  Something a little bit playful, I figured.  Nothing too elaborate or crazy, just basic pieces that work with just about anything, like this stunning studded bag from Charlie My Love (among other awesome goodies coming up over the next few weeks!), the simple tunic from Bird by Juicy Couture, and this fun fedora from Nobis.  Perfect for the inner blue-haired girl (and the regular-haired girls) in everyone.

    ohmygod, I totally forgot about that milk commerical.  Is it too late for me to drink more milk???

    Also, I was just thinking about jordan catalano yesterday.  Breaks my heart that jared leto is so weird now ( Although the weirdness is oddly hot here).

    Your shoes = fabulous!  I want a tour of your shoe collection 🙂
    PS: I wished I was Rainbow Bright (and yup, I fully realized she was animated)!

    Gorgeous outfit, beautiful shoes. I love the airy quality of the dress, airy and black is a rare but great combination!

    That Manic Panic Glam Strip looks amazing in your hair! I really thought you had dyed it until I read your blog.

    I went through a blue and pink wig phase in college, but I think only bc I couldn’t get the streaks to dye right. I might have to go and get those Manic Panic extensions.
    Anyway, I realized recently that my rainbow streaked hair extension probably stemmed from childhood toys. Did you have a Lady Lovelylocks doll? I did. =)
