So the blonde hair…it’s going tomorrow. I am going back to my roots.
After a week of scaring myself in the mirror and trying to make my complexion look less jaundiced, I’ve given in and I am going back to my roots tomorrow. Glossy, dark chocolate locks here I come. I wanted a change which is why I thought I’d try the lighter locks but, to be honest, with my skin tone I feel so washed out, and my hair is so dark that I already can see root growth. The maintenance would kill me!
It was really after seeing the following photo that I decided not to persevere any longer. I love this jacket but I look so drab and dreary in it with lighter hair. I’ve also binned the shoes – I loved them once but again I think the pink/nude color does me no favors whatsoever. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it – I should know by now to stick with my dark palette – in fact I should ask Donna over at I Won’t Wear Sludge Brown to do a color reading for me.

I am of course eternally grateful to my hairdresser for squeezing me in tomorrow before I leave on my trip this weekend!
Yesterday I was running some errands and I happened to nip into Neiman Marcus – as you do. I rarely go in department stores as I think I’ve mentioned before I can find them overwhelming. However, my eyes were opened by Neimans – what have I been missing!? I had a quick look around the contemporary store – CUSP. So many great brands like Vince, Rag & Bone, Alice & Olivia, Helmut Lang and even Isabel Marant – I had no idea there was a stockist here in Atlanta! I may have found myself trying on some J.Brand leather jeans…just for size of course…for the record they fit big…I got into a 28″ because they are so beautifully stretchy.
I then headed to the shoe department – again I found my favorite Rag & Bone Newbury boots along with the Vince Nina flat that is back in an array of colors this Spring. I was totally smitten by the sale shelf – I nearly cried with joy when I saw Isabel Marant boots and Chloé Suzanna boots less than half price!
Beautiful hairy Newbury boots in the sale:
These Saint Laurent boots made me stop in my path – just stunning and they totally remind me of my Zara boots (yet to be worn).
So now I know what an Aladdin’s Cave Neiman Marcus is it could truly be catastrophic. It’s a good job I don’t like mall shopping…
Today I had one last go at dealing with the blonde but headed back to my comfort zone when it comes to colors.
