Born Again Blonde

(Dress: Gift from The Stylish Wanderer, Black Milk leggings, John Fluevog boots)

I was fed-up with being a boring brunette, so I decided to reject my former views on Tumblr and join the legions of "fashion girls" all around the world with ombre blonde hair. This is the most exciting thing I've done with my appearance since I shaved half of my hair off last April and proceeded to embrace the hippie lifestyle and spent a month camping in BC. I absolutely LOVE how it looks, and if anyone ever tells you that you'll look weird or they just "can't imagine you" with blonde hair, please ignore them full-stop and do your own thing.

This is me looking sultry at the webcam with blonde hair!

This is me taking a Myspace picture while winking at you with blonde hair!

This is me lounging in a chair with blonde hair!

Sorry for diverting your attention from the outfit picture to go on a rant about my hair. These brand-new John Fluevog shoes are probably the most badass (and definitely most expensive) shoes I have ever owned. They've got the nerdy aspect of being clogs, but they're black leather bitch boots with five-inch heels and buckle hardware. Plus, the square toe is all Vivienne Westwood. BEHOLD.

Those shoes are to die for. You look great as am ombre blonde, it makes me rethink my hate for ombre.

Good lord you look gorgeous with blonde hair! You've kinda done it differently to most of the ombre hair I've seen, which is only blonde towards the ends. It's awesome.
Epic shoes, too! X

Katrina said...

I love the diverse myspace, webcam and you lounging in a chair photos - they just make more sense when you have blonde hair. And the outfit is the up most lovely - a pretty dress with some black milk leggings and those awesome shoes. Hipster musing perfection if I may say so.

Your hair looks awesome! Way to go with your gut and do what YOU wanted to do :) Mine is the reverse right now... I'm trying to grow my natural blonde back out, but half of it is still dyed dark brown.

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

I love your shoes and leggings! I dyed my hair brown, but now that it's growing out, it looks ombre and I love it! ^^

Schmexical boots. Also, I wish my legs were skinny enough to carry off those leggings. I'd just look like a tubby 14 year old emo.
Hair is good... I wouldn't want to be all blonde, but I must admit, I do enjoy the one little blonde bit I have going on.

Meagan said...

ombre hair! best idea ever. I've always wanted to do it with green but I'm too scared. It looks magnificent on you.

Allison said...

GIRL DON'T YOU KNOW THAT FEMNISTS CAN'T BE BLONDE?!

Jk. Love it obviously.

Mana said...

You are so pretty. And cool. AHSIAHDKAD I'm freaking out right now. How did I not know about this blog before?

meagan said...

M said...

edgeindustrialphotography said...

in womens shoes is about 1%!!

Harriet B said...

Hi 5s fellow ombre lady :) And your leggings are totes amazee! :D xx

Madeline Quaint said...

Wow, the shoes!
But the leggings are the best, really...

Angie Bitchface said...

brown hair isn't boring. I actually think it's more interesting than blonde because brunette girls have natural highlights and multiple colors in their hair. this hair does look pretty chic on you though.

the item of clothing I'm most fascinated by in this outfit post is the sweater! it looks so fluffy. is it angora?

love buzz said...

The hair looks great on you... I wish I could dye my entire hair blonde so I could then proceed to dye it pink... but 1. EVERYONE thinks it would look bad, not that I care too much but, my hair is also pretty thin, not that strong, and it's black. Le sigh, screw you brunettes and your flexibility to alter your hair with less damage <_< I like this outfit very much.

ZombieLace said...

So have things been more fun lately? Because I hear that is a side effect of blondeness.

The Waves said...

Love the hair, love the Fluevogs even more if possible.

Marlena said...

omg you look so cute *.* Blonde is definitely a good color for you! I was also fed up with being a boring brunette, so I decided to go pink! It's a lot of fun! ^.^
p.s. the skeleton leggings/square toed boots are an excellent pairing. You look totally badass! <3

Pansy Lane said...

I LOVE THIS. The hair is amazing and the leggings are fantastic.

jenni said...

Your style is just so much fun! I hadn't come across your blog before, and I have to say I'm impressed! I had to read everything through! And I can't resist of saying, I love those shoes!!!! :)

Rebecca Jane said...

I really like your hair! I think you could even add some hi-lites and go lighter if you wanted :)

Hi Isabel
hope you are doing fine. once you may add a black Gibson Explorer electric guitar to those leggings. I think it would be cool too. :)
thanks for your photos and writings
