Here are some shots I took at home after I got my hair done in ombre turquoise! I originally planned for the tips to be cobalt blue, but as I had to bleach my dark Asian hair to make it blond before the dye was added, I believe that the yellow tint contributed to this greener result. Either way, I was happy with how it turned out! Although the hype for brunette-blond ombre hair has subsided, this more unique take on ombre hair keeps things fresh in my book.

I also had some unpublished shots from right before my hair was done. I thought I would be missing my long hair, but before I know it, my super-fast growing hair will be long again. Short hair may seem easier to maintain, but I feel as though long hair can pull off a messy I-don’t-care sort of look, whereas messy short hair on me just looks neglected and unpolished. This does depend on the type of hair you have – those with wavier hair have an easier time pulling off the short beach/out-of-bed look.

I created a Pinterest board for hair inspirations before heading to the salon. I highly recommend making a Pinterest board if you’re changing your look or even thinking of buying a new outfit! It helps to compare variations of the same look, and weigh out their pros and cons. Aside from Pinterest, there are many other ways to help you choose the right look. If you would like to know how to make great buying decisions in the mall, check out my recent article.

I was very excited when I found out I’d be shooting with Laura Baldwinson after seeing her amazing portfolio. Laura’s aesthetic is edgy, creative and fashionable. Some of these shots were achieved using a photography technique known as freelensing. I quite like the out-of-focus effect, don’t you?

Thanks to Laura, I’ve been motivated to get back into the game of fashion, blogging and photography. I’ve been in and out of the loop ever since starting this site back in 2011, so this is not to say that this blog won’t be on hiatus in the future. I do what I want to do, and right now this just seems right. If you like my work, feel free to subscribe via bloglovin’ or add yourself to the mailing list in the sidebar of this page.

Since I just got a new hairdo, I’ll be shooting a more elaborate creative with Laura this week! Stay tuned.

Looking Back

In early 2012, I started this fashion blog with my cousin Susan as a way for us to express our fashion sense and get creative. I loved the idea of improving something that I made from scratch. Each and every aspect was important to me – the styling, the photography, the writing, website design, search engine optimization and networking. After nearly 2 years I have learned many useful skills which I will take with me as I start new projects alongside this blog.  These new projects will give me the opportunity to acquire a different set of skills.

Thanks to those who have supported me thus far! I look forward to sharing new work very soon. May your 2014 be filled with yummy food, exciting travel, great relationships and confidence-inducing outfits.

-D
