Hello Strangers,

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve interacted with this sector of my cyber-life. I have dearly missed my days of (shared) blogging here. 

Since there has been a great chunk of time between the last time I or Emily have been around I suppose there is some catching up to do. Please friends,old and new, feel free to contact us with any news from this world. Or don’t. (But I hope you do, for the record.)

A brief summary:

Since last time I was on here I moved across the States to sunny California. For the first several months I was in SoCal and hella (a very Californian term for “very”) unhappy so I migrated north and now live about an hour away from San Francisco.
I cannot express how happy I am about this.
Now, I must admit I am no-longer part of the “true” vintage community. All I mean by that is that I no longer dress in my former full-on 1930s-40s garb, but rather I have a much more modern approach to my personal style. I still love my wardrobe from that part of my life and cherish what I gained from the experiences associated with it, but at some point it stopped feeling fun and started being a source of insecurity. I no longer felt like my aesthetic matched my personality. So, I have branched out a whooole lot. I still wear vintage styled clothes sometimes, but less intensely, but I stopped curling my hair last summer and have progressively gotten less and less ... vinatge-y?

That being said, I have also relieved my self of the burden of long, henna-dyed hair. That’s right, October 2013 I chopped off mid-back length hair and got a pixie cut. (I was watching A LOT of “Once Upon A Time” at this point... you can see where I might have gotten some more inspiration and finally the nerve to go for it.) I honestly am super-duper happy I did this and I’ll talk more about my hair changes in a later post, but I just wanted to update y’all since I look pretty different.

Anywho, So basically I recently decided I want to start documenting my fashion/hair styles once again because I always had fun with that part of it. Next week I have my spring break, so I’m hoping that’ll be a great chance to gather some images and such to queue up some posts!

I’m so happy to be back at this, but I’m not sure how thoroughly I’ll be able to maintain it till summer break... We’ll see.

Have a lovely Tuesday, folks!
