Welcome to week ten of Hollywood to Housewife, where I find a picture of a celebrity in an outfit I love (the “Hollywood”), and make it my own using pieces in my closet (the “Housewife”), and without making any new purchases.
So lets first talk about the elephant in the room- yes, I darkened my hair just a tad (ok a lot). You guys, its dark. Like super dark. Its going to fade a little, like hair does most of the time, but for now its pretty dark. Its more brown looking in person than in the pics. It looks almost black in the pictures! I still don’t recognize myself. I forget its darker and then all of a sudden I will catch a glimpse of my hair then do an “oh right I forget I am a brunette now!”
I just wanted a change…I have been debating for months now as to whether or not I should go back to my natural (or close to it). My hair stylist (who is amazing by the way) convinced me to do it since I have been on the fence for so long about it! I am glad I did it- its nice to have a change! I am still not used to it yet, and I am pretty sure that just as I am getting used to it I will start the process to go back to blonde (that’s what usually happens when I do this). I am sort of looking forward to the fact that it will be less maintenance at the salon too…kind of refreshing! In the meantime though…I am still adjusting to having such dark hair! I am getting a spray tan today to sort of tone down the fierceness of the hair color! Maybe once I get the spray tan, combined with the dark hair I will look like some exotic beauty or something? No? A girl can dream!
Anyway….onto this week’s look. I found this pic of Naomi Watts in one of my old magazines (as I was going through them to toss). I swear in the mag her shorts were orange and her blazer navy blue. Awesome- I have all those pieces (except I don’t do shorts)! I can’t stand shorts. I think its mainly because I don’t really care for my legs too much (or at all, really). I will wear shorter dresses but just won’t do shorts! So anyway, I get all the outfit pieces together, get the pics, then try and find the pic online. Well crap! The shorts look red, and the blazer black! So, lets just pretend that her shorts and blazer are indeed orange and navy. Blame it on the lighting, folks!
So there you have it. I guess this will be another effort in my research as to whether or not blondes really do have more fun. We shall see!
See you back here tomorrow!
