Before anyone freaks out, the purple isn’t permanent (however, since these pictures were taken I HAVE done something permanent to my hair which you’ll see soon). It was done using the hair chalking method. While it looks great, I wouldn’t recommend doing a whole streak of it like I did. It would really be better on only the tips since closer to the roots the chalk will rub off if touched.

Fun fact about the black sweater I’m wearing here, it is 100 % cashmere and I found it at a flea market for $1. Nice, right? Also the high tops I’m wearing in this outfit were bought last year with some money I got for Christmas and I hardly wore them because I couldn’t come up with ways to wear them. After I wore them all day with this dress and tights, you can probably expect to see them all the time. They are incredibly comfortable.

Have you tried out hair chalking or been brave enough to actually dye your hair a bright color?
