Naked As We Came


I ♥ NY tee & DIY garter body harness

Best. Haircut. Ever.

  • You'd think shaving a third of your head might trigger the flow of tears.. So not true. Jaime did an amazing job with the zigzags, its unbelievable. And as I anticipate the "What did you do?!" emails from my relatives on facebook, I revel in the fact that by chopping off a few strands I seem to have gained an almost electric kind of surge of creativity. Not to mention my giggles as I rode my bike on the main road to the many ooohs and aahhhhs of the bystanders, but all I could think about was how breezy my left side felt, and how deprived my right side must be feeling..
  • It seems that with each garment I make, I lose a bit of the Me-who-likes-to-dress-up-to-go-out. If I could do some hocus pocus and transform all my girly dresses into tank tops and cut offs in the most basic shades, I would be a happy camper. I just seem to have lost all my drive in making myself presentable. Luckily thats what I have my man-friend for, who promptly reminded me that: "..thats exactly why the most brilliant designers always step out in basics." Bless his heart.
  • I am putting together a series of shirred beach dresses to put into the shop here on the island. I will also make them available to my local readers [I would ship internationally too, but it costs and arm and a leg and a toe to do so] but instead of putting up a store I will just do it via blog or maybe Ebay. Turns out time management is not exactly one of my strengths...
PS: Nothing is more entertaining than scratching your shaved head. Seriously.

What's the most drastic thing you have done with your hair?

OMG!!! IT'S FUCKING AWESOME!!!! <3 You have so much guts to do that & I rightly so. It's brilliant.

I cut my hair to a pixie cut (kinda) looked *shite* on me, but you live and you learn! =D

Major kudos Dane!! xxx

You blow my mind! I'm so glad you decided to do it.

The most drastic thing I've done with my hair is getting a fringe. Honestly, I have absolutely no motivation to get a haircut I have to maintain.

you look stunning! can't stop looking at these pictures!

i'm too scared to do anything drastic with my hair... but i once dyed it orange! and i really loved it, when i today look at pictures of myself with orange hair... i piss my pants laughing! ;-)

Honey V said...

Pixie-child! YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!! Love the cut, love how it makes you even MORE beautiful, and love how it's inspiring your creativity too!

Most drastic thing I ever did was shave my head when I was at University. Liked it so much I kept it that way for months.

I've also had long, platinum blonde locks, purple hair, green, and blue. And hundreds of tiny, down-to-my-ass proper afro-braids. Which I loved.

But shaving my head was the best. Totally liberating. FREEEEEEEEE!!! Enjoy your new cut. Like I said - it looks phenomenal. xxx

I tried DIYing on Dyeing, twice. Then curling ironed it. If dyeing could keel.

Allie said...

I fucking love you.

You know, Michael Kors only dresses in black. He's got the same combination of clothes; pants, shirt, blazer. All in black. So he doesn't have to think about it.

P.S. I got some photos for you. Need to upload and tweak. It'll be up by Wednesday. xoxo.

Wanderlusting said...

WOW somehow this totally suits you...you have such a sweet face but with this hair, you are suddenly one cool AND hot chicka. Yowza!

I play it safe with my hair because I don't have a lot of it - though I thought extentions were quite risky, and then dying the tips blue :P

Dylana said...

WOW! Not many people can pull of this look, but you totally do! You look so cool.

Damn, I wish I had your devil-may-care attitude! I've been wanting to go bald since high school but have had no good excuse to do it except that I really want to. Now I'm in an uptight, image-is-everything environment and need to look professional all the time. It sucks. I wanna break FREE!

Coolest cut ever! Bravo!

LJ said...

It's crazy fantastic Dane!
I'm still contemplating my dreds, my hair's probably long enough now

The NeuroChiq said...

It's insane, Dane, but I love the guts and the expression...Sadly, I can't do anything more drastic than getting blonde, because my work requires me to be always professional,and I can't afford to lose my job =p

You're amazing!I followed you =)
