176 - Know Your Roots

Shirt - c/o 2020 Ave, Cuff - c/o JFR.SE, Ring on my right (your left) index finger - c/o LSD, Shoes - wholesale-dress.net, Necklace - flea market, Other jewelry - assorted, Shorts - thrifted jeans DIY cut off & distressed & bleached & dyed

Other possible titles for this post included:

"The Root of the Matter"
"Rooting for the Home Team"
"The Root of All Evil"
"Same Old Root-ine"
"Roots Squared"

Yes, the roots of my hair are out of control. That won't be remedied for at least another week, though.

In other news, I am head over heels in love with loud clang-y hang-y Afghani necklaces right now. I can't stop wearing this black one. It seriously goes with everything. You also saw the brownish choker from my last post, which is a similar thing. Then, Brit picked up the coolest one I've ever seen! It's fluorescent orange-red.


How perfect is that outfit? She is a dressing genius, I swear. 

Also, Kat and Casey wear these awesome necklaces pretty regularly.



I don't know if Kat's and Casey's are Afghani, but they feature a similar "I'll bet this makes a lot of awesome noise!" element. You can find these rad necklaces on Etsy and eBay for between $40-$200:

    1. How petite? I'm 5'0" and they look perfectly good, so I don't doubt that you could pull one off!

  7. I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE FREAKING NECKLACES. I really wanted the coin choker that you guys had on TV, but I just couldn't manage to afford it. (I am so glad SOMEONE bought it, though! I was shocked it took so long to be sold, really.) I'm really combing the market for the perfect/ly affordable kuchi-style choker, and I'm often on Etsy looking for 'em.

    Also, I think mine's from India? Or is belly-dancer inspired. Since it was a birthday gift, all I know is that it was from eBay and around $20, so I know it isn't vintage... Could-a fooled me though!


    And hey, I let my roots grow out quite a bit in favour of the blueish hair I had before re-bleaching it. It's all good! I kinda love how it looks with crazy coloured hair.

  11. WORD on the clangy necklaces. I think people can always hear me coming from a ways away because of a combination of loud shoes and necklaces. Also I'm super curious about your natural hair color. I realize thats, like, the weirdest thing I could wonder about.

  17. The necklaces are really nice, I like how chunky they look. I don't think I'd wear them myself, for some reason I'm horribly fussy when it comes to jewellery. It's a little obsessive actually. Anyway, I actually don't think your roots look bad at all.
