Dirt Road

light4.jpg picture by stylebook18
Currently toying with the idea of chopping my hair off...I want to cut it a little above my shoulders and perhaps lose the fringe. What do you think, should I do it? I'm wearing a handmade gray tee, Forever 21 skirt, gojane.com purple platforms, and a M by MJ bag

Oh and a quick thank you to Picture1-2.png picture by stylebook18 for the feature!

Very cute skirt! I've been thinking of chopping my hair, too, but then I saw a picture of Dita von Teese with very glam hair that sort of convinced me not to. And everyone loves the long hair. You look without the fringe, too, so maybe an angled bob with your existing fringe blended in?

Violet said...

the short look would be great on you..but just incase u ffeel like u might chicken out at least cut it enought that you can still do a ponytial...
but hey im no expert lol

Do it! I predict it will be an amazing, delectable haircut on you. And I very much enjoy that t-shirt.

Nita-Karoliina said...

cut just a bit, and taking rid of that fringe ( WHICH IS LOVELY) maybe is nice for a change. you look absolutely GOOOOOOOOD!

I think you could probably pull off a shorter do.. but I think your hair looks really good right now too. I also quite love the skirt.
As for the goodwill stores, I actually havent ever been to one, I believe they are only in Ontario =(
And a question about the Anna Corinna bag you were contemplating buying.. which sites sell them do you have any ideas? I havent ever seen in any Canadian stores(shocker)

Liv/e in Both Senses said...

This has to be one of the hottest outfits i've seen in a while. So fresh.
Internet shopping is EVER so dangerous...especially when work's not busy =S

Heidi at MilkChildren said...

I would love to know how you made that grey Tee, it looks perfect. I think your hair looks lovely as is, but change is always great and hair grows back! xo

chin said...

this surely is a a very different post from you! You look so amazingly different! As for cutting your hair off? Why not! You're a gorgeous gal so I believe short hair would still look good on you! Besides it is a good trend to try.

VanessaFromMilan said...

i like the skirt!

copperoranges said...

that skirt is so pretty!

Anonymous said...

you look oh so fine in this hair, don't think you should snip 'em off! but again.. you're simply gorgeous so if u wanna have a change, it's not that bad too. still, i think your fringe and hair looks really good now!

and i really love your style, it's incredible. great inspiration!

Lydia said...

I really hope you don't get rid of your bangs, they're pretty much a signature now. I say go shorter but long enough to put in a ponytail (what I did).

As for the shirt, I love the draping and the skirt is really adorable as well. Two thumbs up, as usual =D

Mimi said...

Gonna steal this skirt :D
Hm..
The hair question:What you mentioned sounds good as i can imagine but please not too short your hair looks so good!

Andrea said...

Don't do it! I love your hair as it is now! I think if you do it you should do it audrey style.

chloe said...

I like the t-shirt like this on the shoulder.

MHBass said...

i used to have hair your length until i cut it into a chin length bob a few months ago, and i haven't regretted it. it looks edgier but still feminine, and it's a lot easier to look after too! but if i were you i'd keep the fringe, or at least some kind of fringe.

nonpareil said...

i thought you were contemplating growing your hair out...but maybe im getting you mixed up with another stylish blogger. i think the chop would look fabulous, you have the faceshape for just about any style :)

julie said...

I love your long hair! but you will be so beautiful with short!
Sorry for my bad english!
kiss karla!

shoebox said...

I think you would look great with shoulderlength hair! I´ve been thinking about cutting my hair like that as weel, but I´m not sur I dare...:P

Lovely outfit! You make me want to put my thights deep in my closet :)
But it´s too cold here...

Unwise Pedestrian said...

Weirdly I'm thinking of doing the exact same thing - losing the fringe and chopping off a couple of inches. Sooooo, you go first :P

And love the skirt! You did a great job!

Anonymous said...

short could be nice. But dont half-ass it - im not into all this leave it long enough for a ponytail stuff. the girl who writes this blog http://hyphenoptional.blogspot.com/
has a short style that would look cute on you!

good girl gone rad said...

Don't cut your hair! I love it- I think your fringe is part of your look.... And I love that skirt with the tee- how did you make it? One of my favorite pics of you!

diamondsinchampagne said...

LOVE the skirt, and LOVE the fringe.. don't cut it! :(

Anna Vedeneeva said...

really great outfit*

Tinkerbell and fairies said...

Short hair will be good for a change, but long hair makes it easy to style (:
Love your handmade tee! Versatile!

Penny said...

ooh i love anything high waisted! looks gorgeous.
those studded boots in your previous post are to die for!!!!!!

Dakota77 said...

I like your hair just as it is, but if you want a change, maybe you should consider a bob? I think it's a great hairdo, especially since I got it;-)

Catlover said...

No, no, NOOO! Please, Karla, don't do it, don't cut off your beautiful long hair! And dont't touch your fringe!
It's your "cifra stilistica", as we say in Italy!
P.s. I love your blog and your style. If you come to Roma, passes to find to me! Kisses!

Ssu- said...

Nice outfit :) I like your hair as it is, but if you really want to cut them, then do it!

Sweet Jessica. Kynd Haze said...

You are such a lovely girl, I love reading/seeing all your outfits.
I think the hair cut would be good, I also adore your fringe though.

Carrie said...

I saw those f21 buckle wedges online, too! They're sweet. And p.s., DON'T CUT YOUR HAIR.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

its all soo so lovely

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Oh, and haha, yeah, about my previous comment.....Since we cant be friends in real life I guess thats all i can do.. :)

And, I think cutting your hair off would be a fine idea.

Emily said...

great skirt...i tried on the same one and i love how you paired it with that t-shirt.

...love Maegan said...

That outfit is ADORABLE! Your hair would be cute short...although, growing out the fringe would drive me insane!

Cris M. said...

the pic is sooo beatiful, with this sun! :)

♥ fashion chalet said...

Thanks, Karla. :):)
YAY to being Virgos!!!!!
Congrats on GLAMOUR! ♥

I'd go for it! EVen though I like your hair, having it shorter would look great on you I think, without the fringe. I love that hairstyle. So hot.

Taghrid said...

slouchy tee..yum!

Linnea said...

I really think you should!
I had almost the same haircut as you before and about a week ago I cut it like Anja Rubik and i've never regreted it! you will regret it if you dont:P

liiiz said...

Im sure you would look stunning with a shorter do but didn't you mention before you were determined to have long hair??
btw are those shoes pretty comfy or nah??
love
lizz

Sydney said...

yeah, you should totally cut it! you would look great with a bob. I used to have boy-short hair, and then I grew it out to a bob, and I loved it. then I wanted long hair again, but now that it's long I'm thinking of cutting it off again...

TEXTSTYLES said...

i went searching for those heels
apparently they didn't get them up here in the wild wild north.

let's link up
more Toronto boutiques coming!

Milk It Honey said...

i say eff it, go Audrey style! you definitely have the face for it!

Snowshoe said...

I've been trying to grow my fringe out; it's a painful process! I want to cut it pretty bad. Also, the skirt looks fantastic with those minor adjustments! Perfect.

Olsens Anonymous said...

ahhhhhhh!

This is TO DIE FOR!!!!!

Ashleigh said...

I would LOVEEE to see you with shorter hair..I say go for it!

lisa said...

Good for you for doing your own alterations so successfully! I'm contemplating a haircut too...I've put up pictures on my blog of the styles I'm thinking of. Any one of those styles means I lose 5"-8" of my hair length. Eep!

Adiel said...

Wow, loving the handmade and the alterations. Good work Karla! Loving the outfit!

Nina said...

i love ur tee...how did u do the sleeves? did u just roll, scrunch, and tack? it looks fabulous! and so do u!

bear said...

love the skirt!

Daniela said...

cut the hair, but KEEP the fringe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

styleexpress said...

i think u should keep ur hair! i looks gr8 long! oh and i love ur outfit!! gorg!!

this wheel's on fire said...

LOVE the outfit! i think your hair is wonderful now, but i can also see it being lovely if you cut it off. i always want to cut my hair and "start fresh". can't wait to see! :)

Milk It Honey said...

by the way, did they have the shoes? i wondering what they look like/feel like in person...

vix said...

Wonderful outfit!

And I say go for it! I'd love to see you with a different cut.

Stompface said...

What a lovely outfit! Very sweet and ladylike. What a cute skirt.

You should think really carefully about cutting your hair, I know I always regret cutting mine short. I've only just got it really long again!

But you are so pretty you could pull off any hairstyle and I bet that would look great!

lalatragickk said...

karla, darling, how cute are YOU! i love the skirt!
& the purple platforms.

Kama Chameleon said...

hey, i think you would look fab with shoulder length hair, but strange as it sounds it might take more straightening maintenance? also i think a sorta wispy side fringe would look great on you. just my opinion tho ;)

M* said...

I have a symilar skirt and I love it but it doesn't fit me right now!
You've a pretty face so a shorten hair will suit you for sure.

Jenn said...

Lovely outfit! I'm obsessed with ur style!!

Carla said...

Another great outfit! I absolutely love your hair so I say don't cut it but in saying that any style would suit you as you have a gorgeous face. Maybe try growing the bangs out first and then cut it???

caryson said...

HEY!!! In love with your outfit!
I was wondering if the f21 shoes you were refering to were rhis ones
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=footwr&sub%5Fcategory=&search%5Fsize=&search%5Fcolor=&search%5Fprice=&product%5Fid=2052153162&Page=all
Any idea for a size 39 zara shoes, what size I would be for f21?

Frickys said...

The off-the-shoulder look is amazing and looks great on you and with that skirt...mmmm... great job, beauty :)

Fashion Tidbits said...

hot! i'm feeling some Gucci vibes from this outfit!

Anonymous said...

hi Karla..
love your style..
i was jus wondering if those purple platform are any comfy...
i'm planning on buying them in black!thanks!
Michela

karina said...

I used to wear a skirt like that when I was your age.
Your hair is just perfect!!!

Anonymous said...

I think you would look good with shorter hair, maybe a very blunt cut just above your shoulders that goes up a bit in the back. I like your fringe, personally. You can always throw it back and it would take a while to grow it out.

I used to have longer hair similar to yours and once I started cutting it off I would become more brave about going shorter and shorter! It is fun to do while you are still young. I mean, your hair will grow back.

Just sayin'!

punky said...

congrats on the feature!!!

karla said...

Thank you guys for all the hair dilemma feedback- still unsure of whether I want to cut it or not. Knowing me, I’ll probably end up cutting it because I’m bored with my hair.

robo: Yea that’s what I’m thinking. Growing the bangs out somewhat and cutting my hair into some sort of angled bob.

nita-karoliina: Checked it out, thanks so much!

anon11:32: Aw thanks!

r: Oh man I have to visit Ontario then! And pinkmascara.com sells Ana Corinna bags!

heidi at milkchildren, good girl gone rad: I’ll try to do a DYI post soon, it’s super easy!

nonpareil: Ugh I’m so indecisive. Yes that was me who wanted longer hair- now I’m changing my mind haha.

anon2:42: I checked it out and it looks good on her. However, I’m still too scared to cut it so short! Call me a weenie if you will.

dakota77: Considering a bob-bish haircut...

catlover: Such a sweet comment! I will totally message you or something if I ever go to Italy (Roma right?)

linnea: I’m going to google Anja Rubik!

liiiz: Dude I’m so indecisive. One day I want long hair, the next day I want short hair. And yes, they’re sort of comfy :)

lisa: Checked them out- they gave me some hair cut ideas!

nina: Ha pretty much. It’s super easy, maybe I’ll do a post on it soon.

milk it honey: No they didn’t :(

kama chameloen: Definitely considering a “wispy side fringe”.

carla: Yea that’s what I think I’m going to do.

caryson: I wasn’t able to open the url. And I’ve never purchased F21 shoes so I don’t know how their sizing fits :( Sorry!

anon1:40: Only worn them once but they’re not that bad!

nostyleboys said...

ah i love this
it all looks so good together
and i can't believe you made that tee
verr nice
