Could have went with a Metallica lyric for the title of this look, but "1979" by the Smashing Pumpkins is infinitely more inspiring. It's my last year as a teenager, and the gritty city landscape I posed alongside plays into my urban adolescent theme. Nothin' 90s about a spiked snapback and 6 inch square heels, but the 'frustrated rebel youth look' is timeless. BILLY GETS ME FOR SURE. I'm rocking a pair of UNIF Hellbound Platform boots (limited edition on Nasty Gal) -- very exclusive, much adored, and a perfect fit for my print-crazy wardrobe. They look so cute next to my other two pairs. A little Hellbound family. Thank you, Nasty Gal, for offering me the opportunity to give the Las Vegas concrete a piece of me with some sky-high stomp treatment. These platforms pair well with my winter gear: ripped jeans from PacSun and a two-piece denim jacket from Chicwish.

So... this is the UPDATED version of my hair. Bleached a cool ash blonde, blown straight, and cropped. It had to be done. Bleaching it brass was a thrill and I wish I could have kept it, but I have no regrets about this new 'millennial' style, too. A colorist named Gianni at the Wynn salon chose the look for me after reading my style through an outfit I walked in with. Black pantsuit, turtleneck, beret, and vintage Ferragamo pumps. It was an enlightening experience, shedding my split ends and adopting a chic new aesthetic at the dawn of a new year. Similarly, it's the dawn of a new era in my own life, and the spankin' new 'do feels fitting. Every time I look in the mirror, I'm reminded of the crazy changes I've made over the past few weeks. Blonde is a symbol. More fun in 2013???? We'll see.
Everything is infinite,
