I've been feeling some changes in my life and often that comes with a physical change as well. It was time to let go of pink again and I've moved on to green hair! It's giving me a very earthy and sure feeling whereas I've outgrown pink in terms of emotional stages in my life. At least in this current timeline. I'm sure it'll make another appearance not too far in the distance!
For now, I'm going for a minimalistic style with more subdued colors. Since green goes great with my skin tone and offers a more mature color, I thought it was the best way to go.
So how did I get from pink to green?
If you remember, I had very light pink hair. To get the red/warm tones out so that I don't have streaks of brown in the green, I put blue dye over my hair. It turned my hair purple and the ends blue since they were the most processed. Then I put silver/gray dye over it the next day to dilute the colors. After that, I used Manic Panic's Raven and Electric Lizard right after the hair below and got the beautiful color I have now!
It didn't damage my hair but it did dry it out a bit with all the washing so I deep conditioned my hair with Beyond The Zone Last Call Hair Masque. Sally's Beauty Supply had it at the register so I decided to try it out. It works nicely but it does smell strange. If you can get passed that, it may work well for you. One packet has plenty to cover thick medium length hair.
A part of my change is also forming within my wardrobe but I'm not sure if it will be able to keep up with me before I change my mind again! It's way more difficult for me to change my clothing than my hair financially.
I've separated my black, white, green, and denim clothing from all the others I have for the minimalist style. I've already got a good start with what I have and I've added two more pieces from GoJane.com. An interesting bodycon dress and a maxi skirt with two splits in the front.
I absolutely LOVE the design of this dress but I think it looks awkward on me x .x'''
I don't know how long it'll take for me to build up the confidence or just not care how I look to wear it. I love it too much to let it go so I'll have to get myself to wear it some time, lol.
The maxi skirt is super risque. The splits go ALL the way up, so matching shorts or boy shorts underwear is best for this type unless you're okay with everything exposed. More power to you, haha!
I'm just barely 5' and even pulling this all the way up my waist, it's way too long and I'm stepping on it. I've got to tailor it myself to be wearable and I'm wearing my tallest heels in this picture. I think they're SIX inches tall??!
My last purchase are these adorable shoes!
This look has been in style for awhile now and I've only just been able to jump in.
I got the white version of the blue in the middle. I found all of these on ebay. Just search up white chunky heel platforms. You'll find a ton. Most range between $30-$50.
They're SUPER light weighted. I don't know if the higher brands are heavy and how long they'll last in comparison, but I'm satisfied with what I have. I wanted these to wear with everything and have an easy time walking around. The balance between the platform and the heel is great and not drastic so it's easier to walk. I also like that the strap is a hook instead of it being a buckle. However, they do start squeaking after a few wears and since they're white they'll get dirty faster.
This is just the beginning of my new style change! I've got a long, long way to go. It can be pretty hard transferring from bright and cutesy to minimal and edgy but I'd like to get there. Though like I said, who knows if my wardrobe can keep up with my ever changing mind!
For now, I've got a style inspiration blog consisting of what I'd like to achieve. Such as hair, makeup, clothing, and general feeling that I'd like to project. If you're interested in this style, follow my new blog, Solangelia! It means sun angel. I guess I'm ready to rise out of the darkness that I've been in the past year and with it, a new me internally and externally.
Once again, thank you for everyone that's been with me through this journey. Whether you're a reader and/or a supporter. I just can't imagine life without this blog and everyone that cares enough to read it!
