On a complete whim last week, I changed my hair colour from ashy blonde with natural roots to a dark brown with just a very few caramel highlights. It was a scheduled appt for my usual colour touch-up but by the time I sat down in the chair, I was so sick of this ubiquitous middle-aged blonde rooty look and so sick of looking and feeling blah and not loving my clothes and not finding anything to buy (this is what happens in January in Canada when it's incredibly cold and you lose your mind) .....I asked my colourist to make a complete change. The last time I went this dark, I freaked out after a week and had it changed back to blonde. This time, I like it. It's given new life to my clothes in that way that buying a new "shirt" when you were a teenager made all your old jeans feel special again.....or was that just me ? Black clothes look better, my makeup feels better, and I feel less blah. Funny how that works. Now, if I could only find some new clothes I like - where is all the good stuff??? I'm on the hunt for new jeans, and am not finding anything yet. I want a soft denim, dark rinse, straight leg jean - and do you think I can find one? no. I also want some new tops for work wear - and not just another g*dd#$m pullover sweater. Anyone buying anything new and interesting out there??
