These are our porch people.
1. My shirt and shoes are both velvet! And they're both blue. Hence, the title of this post is not actually an homage to the 1986 movie, Blue Velvet (mostly because I've never seen it!), but really just an unimaginative physical description. I've heard repeatedly that this movie is rad though, so maybe I'll watch it. Also I image.googled Blue Velvet and this image came up:
...so I guess now I have to watch it (??).
2. I've been loving my "ombre" hair (in quotations because, though it was totally unintentional, I frequently get asked how I did it) these past 6 months or so, but I'm afraid I may have to chop it off soon. The lighter colored bits at the end have been through HELL (back when I was bleach blonde I would bleach my hair once every 3 weeks) and they are fried (see: first photo of this post). Siiighhh. And I so meant to grow my hair down to my waist.
3. One day recently I woke up and looked in the mirror and I just looked...old. Well, not old, but older. It's like it happened overnight. All of a sudden I've got bags under my eyes and laugh lines (which I more likely acquired frowning) and little lines between my eyes (whatever those are called). Obviously I still look quite young- I mean, I'm only 23. But there's something strange about really feeling like you're still 16 and then seeing any kind of lines on your face at all. My mother, who's 60 years old, once said she still feels like she's 20 on the inside- evidence that this feeling never really goes away. Man, the aging process is a powerful and confusing thing.
