As you can see, I recently had a bit of a makeover when it comes to my hair. As someone who is super low maintenance (surprising, I know), my hair just wasn't cutting it (heheh) for me anymore. Over the years, it has become a dry, shapeless, dead mess that no wand, iron or moisturizer could fix and I was OVER IT. I'd never done anything remotely like this to my hair (no weaves or extentions...just that creamy crack) so I was not without some trepidation - the trip to the hairstylist's felt like a trip to the doctor's, I was so anxious - but I am so glad I took the plunge and I'm honestly never going back.
All that to say that this new hair has me feeling like a completely different person. Like many other things in my life this year such as past jobs and relationships, I hadn't realized how ugly and low I felt on a daily basis until I had no reason to feel that way anymore. This hair seems like one of the final pieces of the puzzle to making 2016 my greatest year yet and I feel incredible and stronger than ever, like I can take on the world!
Of course, I'm beyond excited to integrate this hair into my own personal style and this is just the beginning. I adore this top for its easy-breezy chicness but there is something bohemian about it as well. And the bare shoulders mean more emphasis gets put on my bob braids.
With that in mind, I styled the top with an army of gold jewellery; the chain choker is a chain shoulder strap from a clutch, the Y-necklace is from Aldo and everything else (geometric choker, rhinestone-d collar necklace, rings) is from Forever21. Below the waist however, I kept it simple with my fave summer staple, white high-waisted jeans and strappy heeled sandals.
My lipstick is the amazing new Matte X formula lippy from Colourpop in 'Trust Me...' and I added a streak of La Splash's metallic StudioShine Lip Lustre in 'Guadalupe' for an added a touch of ~*tRiBaL*~ detail.
Stay tuned for some more awesome lewks featuring this hair!
