new loves and old friends: pixie dust

hello, my dear friends! i told you yesterday that i had a little surprise for you, and here it is. i totally chopped off all of my hair. okay, not all of it. there is still some left, just very little. my hair has been short in the past, but never this short! i have always wanted to try this look, but have never been brave enough until now. what the heck! it is just hair, right? it is day three of the cut and i am still getting used to it, but i must say, i am kinda digging it. i am a bit nervous to show you and i really don't know why. i guess i just hope you'll like it. but even if you don't, there is not much i can do at this point. it's gone and it is not coming back for a while! today i am wearing one of my favorite vintage shirts that i haven't worn in some time, so i thought it was the perfect opportunity to snap some photos and show you the new do! so, here you go...the newly-pixied nora bird!

  4. I love it! You always look perfect, but I Hot Damn love the hair.
    I am excited too! Today I am hosting my first link up. It's all about Jewel tones so that vintage top would fit the bill perfectly.
    Have a good weekend. (Think of all the extra time you'll have styling short hair)

  11. Your hair is HOT! It makes you look fifteen years younger, placing you firmly in the teen realm. You're going to start getting hit on by high school students (though you probably were already ;)).

  21. Nora, you know I am partial to longer hair because I tend to hide behind my hair sometimes. I have had this cut. I was 22 and totally traumatized by it BUT, you look super sophisticated with this little pixie cut and you just opened the window of opportunity to wear vintage even more beautifully. I often want to cut my hair into a bob with long bangs but I am too insecure. I admire your confidence and cuteness. admirably, Dawn xo

  27. What an adorable top... it goes so well with the boots. I'm also impressed with how well you pull off a pixie cut. I have thought about it before, but am always way too intimidated. Very cute!
