I’ve been putting off getting a haircut for two reasons: money and length. I made a strange decision to cut off my long hair a few years ago – it was above chin length! I regretted it almost immediately and have been impatiently waiting to get back to longer locks. I know I’m way overdue for a trim, but when you’re looking for length, even a trim sounds like a chore. It has now been months and months since I’ve had a cut or color, which is why I always have the messy updos. Now that the weather is cooler, I have rediscovered the magic of hats and their ability to conceal bad hair. I promise, ol’ head of hair, I will give you a style and trim and possibly even a lovely color in the coming months. I’ll do it even faster if Kitty Boos will get a job and start taking care of his vet bills.

Edit: Someone requested a photo of me with short hair…here you go!

  1. Hey Keiko,

    The combination of the beret, glasses and leather jacket is just fabulous! I LOVE the way you dress!!




  2. Really nice outfit! And I get the whole not wanting to cut your hair thing! You always say an inch and they take three! I decided to cut my A line extreme bob back to a straight length and I miss the hair on my shoulders! (but I had to do it, the ends were dead :/)

  3. I seriously feel you on the hair situation. I've been stupidly thinking about cutting mine lately and I'm so happy I've been able to talk myself out of those delusions!

    Hip hip hooray for long hair!! Amazing outfit <3

  4. Love the dress and jacket together 🙂

    I have the exact situation with my hair. I chopped my long hair off into an a-line bob in '08 and it's now pretty much back to its long glory but I'm always in the mindset that I can't cut it because it needs to get longer!

  5. I'm very jealous you can pull off a beret, its something I've never been able to figure out!

    I cut my hair above my chin just a few days ago, only because its so much easier to care for!

    And those shoes are to DIE FOR! I'm totally in love 😉

  6. The dress is so pretty and stands out so well against all the other black pieces! And I think the pink bag is the perfect girly-yet-edgy detail to pull this look together even better. Love it!

  7. hi keiko love love love the Moto jacket – leather (or faux) leather really suits you. so girlie that you can pull it off without looking tom boyish! it's on my wish list.

  8. You look great with any hairstyle, but I know how you feel. I whined and complained about my hair for months… then I finally chopped it off into a pixie. Now I want my long hair back! Yep, just call me Fickle Fern. 😉
