Origami Girl

In which there is a dramatic change

This is me. This short haired girl, me.

I have spent the day swooshing this little short hair cut around and feeling so proud of myself, for this small act of bravery. I not only got it all chopped off, but all cut from incredibly long for the first time ever. I have not even had a fringe since I was a wee kid, and this was the first time I've ever had a cut like this. I sat calmly through the whole haircut watching it fall down all around me with every snip.
This post a little gratuitous celebration of this completely new look and pride. I always believed my face was a little too round for a short hair cut, but it seems to work. 
In truth I intend to dye it red again as well, but these were my quick post-hair cut pictures. So, it might not be the finished deal yet!

Also, I finally got a new coat! You may remember my coat-pining post. As I said, I've been sick of my existing coat for ages, but I couldn't really afford a new one. I stuck at it with searching charity shops for the right one. I finally go this one for about £12 in a cancer research shop. Feeling very happy with it. It is missing one of the buttons, but I'm not too fussed about that.

All chopped off!
I just happened to have this little brooch with the silk in the middle that goes perfectly with the dress.
What do you think? I hope you like it!


  1. I think this hair cut is amazing on you and I am pro-fringe. I think every female looks better with a fringe. Like 100%. This makes you look more sophisticated and ladylike. Seriously, love it. Also navy is so pretty on you and I want your coat!

  2. A navy coat is always a fashion classic - lovely choice this one. You look fantastic with short hair!

  3. The new hair looks great on you!! I love all of those choppy layers in the back.

    I'm sure it takes getting used to, but enjoy feeling so fresh and stylish :)

  5. Your hair looks amazing! And it seriously is quite an impressive thing to do, well done!

  6. You are rocking that short hair (also, different post, but I am so excite to see what you think of the Lego film).
