Girl On Fire

Vest: thrifted   Sweater & Necklace: Forever 21   Beanie: c/o Shop Lately   Jeans: AE   Boots: Just Fab
Well, here it is. My red hair can finally make it's debut! It's odd since in certain lighting, my camera makes it look like it's still dark brown with just a red ombre at the ends. That's why there are two noticeably different photos that showcase the red shade better. Trust me, I'm a ginger Asian right now. Haha, I love it! It's so different from what I'm used to, and it's exactly the kind of change I needed.

Looking back, I feel so different from the girl I was just a year ago. How did that happen? I'm still me, but...different. It's odd to step back and ponder the ways you've adapted to your environment. Perhaps I'm a little less gullible, less bubbly, and less romantic. However, I'm also more focused, more bold, and more...well, like the person I'd like to be. I'm still an optimistic dreamer with big hopes for the future. I still have my faith, my passions, and my smile. That, this world will never take away from me.

For these photos, I decided to show off one of the best thrifted finds I've gotten to date - this fur vest, originally from Zara! I couldn't believe it when I saw the label. I knew when my hand brushed against it that it was good quality! I've worn it a couple times over the to style it up for a school day. Aha, I'm certain it'll garner quite a few odd looks. Perhaps I'll have to go around holding a sign saying it's not real's not!

So I'm sure most of you know by now of the upcoming concert that I'm going to (Imagine Dragons, AHHHH!), but when I found out through Spotify that Ellie Goulding was passing through Idaho, I just had find out when, where, and how much. Um, for $35, I couldn't say no. Since I haven't been to any concerts, I guess I'm trying to make up for it. Sooo, in April it looks like I'll be seeing that adorable little pixie-woman perform live! I'm so looking forward to that one too!

Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.

It's funny how we're so different but so much the same. We grow with wisdom like a tree with its roots in the waters of knowledge. *wise old man voice* Guwahahaha.

Oh man, that fur vest was thrifted? How cool is it? I love it on you, especially with your hat and BEAUTIFUL NEW RED HAIR! Yep, you're definitely ~on fire~ with this look, Miss Linda. I especially love that fierce first picture of your eyes--yes, yes!

Your hair looks gorgeous ! :) Really lovely outcome I think. And lovely look too. Which reminds me I haven't worn my fur vests this winter. Must change that asap.

$35 is a score! I love the outfit, esp. the hat. Surely a lot of women can identify with that - myself included.

Madeline Wainscott said...

Ahhh, I love your hair so much Linda!! It looks great! Also, I'm pretty jealous that you're seeing Imagine Dragons, not gonna lie. Excited that you get to see Ellie Goulding though! I saw her a few years ago, and her voice is just as good live as it is on album. She's so adorable and sweet!!


caffinatedlove said...

Your hair is gorgeous. I think the red suits you well. :)

Looking back at the person I used to be gives me the willies, so no worries. While I can pinpoint exactly how I changed, it's harder to see when I changed. You know, when I stopped being a judgmental know-it-all and let everyone live their own life.

Great thrift find! I'm not a fan of fur but, in a weird way, you wear it very well. I'm more impressed that you thrifted that. :D


Kat said...

Amazing outfit:)

katie said...

The red looks so good on you, its a very natural shade and it really shows off your bright eyes. (its fun being a red head, isn't it?). And how exciting about getting to go see Ellir golding and for such a good price! I saw imagine dragons when they came up to fairbanks back in 2012, they recently said in a interveiw that they thought they're were finished, having to play in some small alaskan town in the middle of winter in -20 below. Heh, I guess they're doing pretty good now! Have fun at both concerts!

Sarah Phillips said...

I don't know if less romantic is a good thing or not, but as soon as I've read that word, I remembered a line from a cartoon: "Romance is for the weak-minded.":D So I guess it's a good thing if you ask Cartoon Network.:D

I want your hat and you look great as a redhead. Very fiery, babe.;)
