feathered

Jacket: Vintage. Shirt: Topshop. Cropped skinnies: Zara. Shoes: Vans. Bag: Alexander Wang (black version is here). Shades: Street Vendor on St Marks. Rings: YSL & Planet Blue. (surplus pics on Facebook)



Yesterday I put my fringe back in (translation: bangs). At the salon, my stylist had feather extensions in her hair and I had her put blue ones in mine (completely unplanned). Apparently they last for weeks and can be washed/dried with your hair. Another stylist with purple ones said she'd had hers for two months. They're attached via little tubes to a few strands. I like that you don't really see them unless a gust of wind or fast walking shows the flash of colour. It's a bit of fun and perfect if you fear hair colouring. I can tell you now, for me it's better than spray on colour. Remember the red done here? It rubbed off on clothes. Lovely.
I KNOW I need to do a hair post soon but I'll tell you from now; I get my hair cut at Salon V by Vernelle. It's a relief to find someone that understands how to work with my hair type and it's not just me. Everyone I've recommended to them thus far for cuts/colouring etc have turned into regulars (blondes, brunettes - the spectrum).
***
It's sunny out but still chilly, hence the Spring like get up with a furry number on top. Ahhh, give it a few weeks and no more jackets.

  49. The green cropped pants are definitely a bold choice, but you totally rock it out. I have a similar pair from J Crew in a sunny yellow. You have inspired me to break them out sooner than I anticipated. Great post!

  54. I've had my feathers in for like 3 months now. My hair stylist changed my beads only once and I love them. Although, I'm taking them out. I'm over it now that everyone and their mother has them here. HAHA. Now, I'm going light...lavennnddaaa. YES.

  55. Thanks everyone. Zara is KILLING IT right now with pop clothes.

    Christina = you and I need to meet! I need to see the beads. I LOVE those too. I'm sort of thinking that I should've just got an earring with a long feature piece attached. That's another way around the whole feather in hair thing!
