Cancer--the Good Kind

So, I'm wearing a sweater covered in crabs.

Look here, my zodiac sign is Cancer--and I'm a Cancer to the core.  Sometimes outgoing--sometimes introverted (in our shell).  That is ME.  Hella emotional?--ME!  All about home and family--that use to confuse me during my single years but who knew?!  It's so me!

So, of course, when I stumbled upon this sweater on Forever21.com, I had to cop it.  You put a crab on it, I'm going to buy it!  You put crab IN it--I'm going to eat it!  Okay, that may not have been the best thing to say. Anyway, I'm in love with this sweater, though it feels more like a sweatshirt.  And no, your eyes aren't deceiving you... yes, I paired it with leopard.  If you haven't figured it out by now, leopard print is almost a neutral these days.  You're wearing stripes?--pair it with leopard.  Polka dots--pair that sh*t with leopard!







Sweater - F21 / Jeans - F21 / Shoes - Aldo


Anyway, last week I'd been sick for DAYS with the flu.  I took these pics as soon as I felt "cute" again.  I know a lot of you have been wanting to see the hair color in natural light.  There it is.  It's red.  I'm going to add more.  I lighten little by little, just so I can control what the hey is going on.  All I can say, is I doubt I'll go back to black for a long time.

Hope you're having a fantastic week!

  13. Anon--This is a braidout done on hair that airdried about 75% in one ponytail braid. I then put in about 7-8 braids, and slept in them overnight.
