Ariel, The Little Mermaid

20121029-072033.jpg
The weekend before Halloween and I, like, many other 20-something year olds, went out to party! My costume; my favorite Disney character of Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I wore a bandeau top from Wet Seal that I pinched together with string, along with a DIY maxi skirt, a thrifted “rainbow fish” cardigan from Saver’s, and my thrifted $5 seashell belt. I also used a vintage Saks Fifth Avenue handbag with netting and pearls and a fork from my kitchen!

Styling by Sahra

This past Sunday I bravely faced my hangover and went to assist on a photoshoot with two long time friends, Greg Easton with model Colleen Leary. It was a ton of fun helping style and being an extra set of eyes and opinion, making sure everything was flawless for the images and helping with posing and locations. This was one of my first times working behind the camera (even if I wasn’t pressing the button) and it’s safe to say it won’t be my last!

I’m Just The Same As I Was Back Then

Casual Saturday comfy look. Pre-cold front and waterfires. Ya digg? I’ve been aesthetically lazy. This “dip dyed” “ombre” hair? Completely accidentally. I’ve been too lazy to bleach my hair since, like, February, but this is growing on me. ALOT. Is it wrong to think I rock it as well as Alice Dellal?

Sunset Dunes

I’m enjoying my time by the sea, playing mermaid and never wanting to leave. Definitely feeling Ariel inspired in this DIY skirt, Wet Seal bandeau, and thrifted tank.

A peak into my life via my InstaGram, and a few candid iPhone shots from the past week of my life.

As you can see I’ve dyed my hair! While helping my sister do hers with a dye job and some bright highlights, I decided to go back to bright red, a la last April, with some mermaid-esque purple lowlights! They’re perfectly subtle, in my opinion.What are your thoughts?

Leopard and Seashells

Boring little outfit post about this look I wore to work and then to the Vintage Twin Trunk Show and then shopping and then to a bar. Really, this is an all purpose look that works for so many places to go!

Please pay no mind to my unpainted nails…They’ve since been painted.

Hair

My hair is one of my most priced possessions. It’s been through a lot, especially within the past three years. Let’s recount:

Almost Platinum January 2008

Natural Color/Dark Brown April 2008

June 2009, green tips.

Mermaid/Sea Foam green, june/july 2009

Bright Pinkish/red Mid July 2009

RED August 2009

Blonde with Red lowlights September 2009

Blonde November 2009

Strawberry Pink January 2010

Red February 2010

Shaved side/Undercut July 2010

Darker red with Blonde underlights.

That’s where my hair currently is. I’ve also been planning to do some more changes to my hair, and have been inspired by many images:

(all images above found via Tumblr.com)

As you can see, I love bright reds. I’m also realllly wanting to put some more mermaid color back in my hair. I think once my blonde gets lights I’ll add the teal.

I also really miss my undercut. I think with the warm months ahead I’ll be bringing it back…
