I'm blue, da ba di da ba dye


So, the other day, I had blue hair! It was completely an accident, but I can't say I didn't like it, even though I decided not to keep it. My original intention was purple, and now, as I am writing this, I am pink. I have a bit of a colour obsession and over the years I have managed to have my hair almost every color of the rainbow. I am, and always have been drawn to alternative modded women. Growing up my style icons were women such as gwen stefani, blondie, etc as well as women who were more geared toward sophistication like Audrey Hepburn. Now that I am older and am more aware of my own sense of style and self, this definitely makes sense to me. I adore all things vintage and lady-like, but I tend to mix these styles with some grunge or alternative elements. Defining one's style is typically difficult because almost none of us fall under one category. As humans we are multi-dimensional and are allowed to enjoy different things (contrary to popular beliefs) and it's fine to change with your mood. Feeling girly in a floral dress one day and suddenly a little cooler in a vintage tee and cut-offs doesn't make you a fake...in fact it makes you truer to who you are. Labels set limits, in anything, including style. We should all dress how we want, when we want, change what we want and evolve naturally. 
Well, there's my little rant for the day. In other news, I am in Ottawa, moved in and loving every minute in the city.
