redhaireddesigner 's Thoughts:

I went to get my haircut the other day. Much with the words in my mind, which I quoted in the title of my post, there is something about cutting off all(most) all your hair that makes you feel like a new person. You feel lighter, more free, and certainly very very different.

I love this cut. Funky and fun but also short and sweet. I do miss my long hair and how young it made me look but maybe it’s time to grow up….at least a little. Plus, I can see and feel how much healthier it is and how much it NEEDED to be cut. The other nice thing about a short hair cut is how amazing sleeveless dresses look. I loved this maxi dress the moment I saw it but didn’t love it right away until I put it on with this hair cut. It brings the whole thing together in a perfectly balance fashion. Short hair + long dress = brilliance. Maxi’s are the thing this season so I’m pretty pumped to find a few more vintage finds to go along with this trend.

Also, I have never felt so light and airy as I have walking around wearing this dress with this short little do. The dress blows in the wind and you feel as though you could simply float away. The tiny details in this simple dress are adorable. A little tiny twisted band around the waist is a subtle Grecian styling that doesn’t overwhelm as something costumey. Oh and these are my new Chelsea Crews. adore They are so much fun.
