Hey guys! This year so far is off to a great start. But my optimism could possibly be espresso fueled. It’s safe to say that while I’m happy for a new year I’m so frightened of so many things e.g. moving to a new town without the help of my parents and starting university. I think it’s worth while to start out the year experimenting with a few things and taking chances so that’s exactly what this outfit post is all about.

I’ve been wanting to cut my hair for a while, or at least change it drastically. My personality is that of someone that needs some change every now and then otherwise I’ll drown in a rut of boredom. At first in the last month I was considering it but I was so frightened. This fright really made me realise I needed to cut my hair. The last thing I want to be frightened of is protecting something as unimportant as my hair and I wanted to do this to remind myself that appearance isn’t the most important thing in the world.


The act itself was a little less hyped. It played out exactly like: “Coen, do you think I should cut my hair?” “Whatever”. So I grabbed the scissors, went into the bathroom and in the next five minutes was finished. 

Six inches and ten months of hair growth gone!

The outfit picture is rather terrible but we were about to leave for a friends party and it was as hot as hell outside which I was not prepared to face. The leopard print dress I’m wearing was a bit of a spur of the moment buy. I regretted buying it almost immediately because I didn’t think I would wear something that isn’t black – so far that thought has been completely wrong. On the other hand while thinking about my style journey I wanted to add a bit more punk into my wardrobe and this was the dress for it – perfect with a leather jacket!

It’s certainly different than everything else in my closet!

Outfit:

Dress: Jay Jays.
Stockings: Anonymous.
Shoes: Cotton On.
Belt: Boohoo.com.
Necklace: EBay.

Anyway, I spent my New Years drinking milky alcohol with a bunch of my friends, ending up sleeping on the floor of a tent fully clothed with only Coen as a blanket. How did you spend your New Years? Are you getting a jump start on your resolutions or goals?

  1. Nice haircut <3! It really fits you.
    I like your dress, even if I'm not a leopard print fan. You matched the accessories really well and the outfit has a sort of a punk/rockish vibe, I like it very much.

  2. It's a very casual NYE outfit in my opinion; I browsed your blog and it seems you sometimes wore more exquisite outfits on a daily basis πŸ˜€ But on the other hand – we all know how exactly NYE parties look, comfortable and simple clothes are needed (unless you attend a ball) πŸ˜‰

  3. Sometimes I feel like drastically cutting my darn long hair or getting rid of boring black colour. But I know I would end up crying and mourning after my hair πŸ˜€ So, I admire your courage to do that drastic step. It's true that there are many things more important than appearance, but also looking bad might make you feel worse in your body.

    If you don't like your leopard print dress, give it to me, I'll wear it with love πŸ˜€ It's so pretty!

  4. That's pretty much how I cut my hair. I spend about a month wondering if I should, then go and cut it all off myself. Sometimes it ends up good, sometimes not. I am trying not to cut my hair at the moment after the last misery of growing it out of an unflattering hairdo, and realising I look better with long hair. I am jealous of those who can pull off short hair!

    I am sure moving to a new town will be exciting! It is always scary moving for the first time! But it is a lot of fun, too!

    The dress is good because it is a nice shape and does look a bit punky (the darker print and studded belt) so it would be great with a leather jacket, maybe skull earrings.

  5. I really like the dress on you, and it looks great paired with that belt!

    I'm trying to break out of a style rut right now, so I'm being more experimental with my clothes and make-up. So far so good!

    I actually had a great time this new year. It's the first time I haven't spent it with family, so I got drunk with some friends, and we walked to a cemetery. I even made a couple of new friends we met on the street. πŸ™‚

  6. I think part of being in any subculture is having the courage to do what YOU want to do, even if it means wearing something non-Goth now and then. We all need variety, and I for one sure appreciate my black ruffles and lace more when I occasionally contrast it with color or a surprising print. People who refuse ton deviate feomthe Goth Checklist sometimes aren't as interesting as those who branch out and try different combinatons to cultivate their OWN style. I think you look fabulous, and wish you all the best in this year of big changes! Embrace them and enjoy them, because life is ALL about change!
