Running in the dark to find East of Eden


Dress c/o Chi Chi
~
This dress *drool* hahah I kind of am in love with this dress from Chi Chi! Interning has given me a good excuse to wear pretty things especially since in the past summers I'd bum out the whole break. The beading on the bodice is absolutely stunning and actually very perfect for working at Amsale!

So this weekend I attempted to dye my hair but it failed miserably haha. Well actually not miserably because it didn't turn out a disaster. I gave myself a trim, just like an inch so barely noticeable, and then I went about bleaching my hair lighter. In the end, the tips of my hair are a lot lighter than in these photos, which were taken a couple days ago. However, they're still not light enough so when I went to dye them lavender, after sitting in my hair for an hour, it didn't show at all. I tried again several hours after my first attempt with a light purple, but way darker than the lavender I was aiming for. The second attempt pretty much failed as well :( The color barely stuck and the lighter sections of my hair ended up a very faint pink :((((( I think I'm going to bleach it one more time later this week because I really really really want this to work haha. Darn you stubborn asian hair :P

  8. AHH That dress is so pretty!! I love how romantic and feminine in the front but a party in the back!

    Bahh I'm always afraid that's what would happen to my hair so I don't bother dying it. Wishing you good luck with the dye job! I totally understand stubborn Asian hair (I'm cursed/blessed with it myself!)

  9. The back of that dress is so gorgeous! I really love your dye job. I feel like dying my hair is a shot in the dark a lot of the times because I just slap on the colour without bleaching or anything.

    Sincerely,

  10. You look gorgeous doll. I'd love pastel in my hair, but it's so dark it would take ages to lighten it and I'm not sure I could be bothered and then have my hair ruined or it doesn't work!! I understand you though :) xx

  15. Don't give up on your hair... our dark asian hair is so hard to dye! gosh I know exactly what you are talking about haha there used to be a time where I wanted dark red hair... and it took like forever to get it there, and then it lasted one week and became orange! haha but hey that week was awesome! I'm also in love with you dress, the details are beautiful and it just looks stunning on you.

  35. Aren't you just the classiest and prettiest thing :) In love with this gorgeous dress too! Honestly have got to check out ChiChi after seeing em on Linda's blog as well. You pair the sweet piece so well--those glasses are perfect and I'm envious of those edgy gold shoes.

    I feel the same way about working! I was so happy I got to dress up more this summer, especially since it's so easy to slip into athletic clothes at home. Excited you got the internship and you're enjoying it! Best of luck getting your hair to do what you want too :) I know exactly how you feel haha.
