Reinventing My Look

For most of my life, I've sported long hair styled with curls at the ends or colored in different ways to revamp my look. But over the weekend, I probably made the most drastic change to my hairstyle that I haven't had the guts to do in years - cut it short! Eeeek! The thought of it scared me the whole week leading up to my date at the salon. But I just braved it because I wanted to try out something different. Plus, Jennifer Lawrence rocked her new shorter, layered cut that I got so inspired to try short, too!

This... is the result. A short, faux bob hairstyle with bangs! Whoa! Last time I tried bangs and had hair this short was in grade school, probably. That is a looong time! Thankfully, the boyf smiled at me after ending my session at the salon and told me he loved it! That is all that mattered to me. Ha!

In keeping with the context of reinvention, I too reinvented my outfit featured in this post. This top isn't technically a top - it's a dress! I had a bodice LBD that I wore a couple of years ago with dramatic shoulder details, of which you might remember be wearing on my 2010 office Christmas Party at Royal Mandaya Hotel. Because I wasn't into wearing a dress that particular day, I decided to fold the bottom half to make it look like a top. I then paired it with my light denim jeans for a casual and polished look. 

What's the biggest fashion or personal style reinvention you've done?


  1. Love it! Makes you look more sophisticated and posh. Would love to hear your thoughts on my latest post.

    I've been attempting to brave getting my hair cut soon too -- It's never been shorter then my shoulder blades & I'm really ready for a change too!

  7. awesome look your shirt is so great!

  8. I've always been a huge fan of short hair...I feel more "me" when I have short hair, but I can understand that it must be a pretty scary/intimidating change when you've had long hair for a very long time! It looks cute!

  9. That is one flattering top! Great just with jeans like that. I wish I could carry shorter hair style like Anne Hathaway is having now.. I wish!
