My girlfriend Ricki just chopped off her hair.  Like Victoria Beckham meets Michelle Williams bob.  It looks awesome.

Growing up, my mom always cut my hair.  It’s like the Asian thing to do – cause you know, Asians do it all.  Why buy it or pay someone, just do it yourself, you’ll probably do it better anyway!  So when I was in the second grade, something possessed my mom to cut my hair to my shoulders. I cried the entire time, I even tucked what was left of my hair in my pajama top to pretend it was longer and when I had to show my dad, I cried some more.  Mom never cut my hair short again.

In college, I wanted a trim and my gal who I had been going to for almost four years, cut my hair just a little past my shoulders. I wore my hair in a ponytail the entire San Diego vacation and I never sat in her chair again.  She later asked a girlfriend of mine months later about me and assumed it was because she got too crazy with the scissors.  Yeah, I’ll break up with people over that.  But never you, mom.

But I came across this photo and I wondered, maybe I could do short hair.  Look at my faux bob.

Then again, now that I think about it, maybe I’ll just pin it up like this for the days I think I want short hair.

Diana Elizabeth got her floral pants from Target.  She doesn’t have them anymore because she sold them on Poshmark, but she has new ones from J.Crew.  Go figure she couldn’t let go of that trend too easily.
