The only downside to shaving your head is making small talk about it at the office. "Did you do it for summer?" No... "Do you like it?" Yes, that's why I did it. "You have a nice skull" I suppose I do. "I wish I could shave my head" So do it... "You look like Sinead O'Connor" Yes, I suppose so. Eh, I don't care...nothing too interesting happens at the office. When someone gets a haircut, it's literally the most exciting thing that's happened in months.
Unfortunately, I kind of have to "retire" a few wardrobe items for a while. For a shaved head, I think more structured/fitted garments look better. A shaved head looks perfect all the time, so it seems more balanced to have the rest of your outfit look polished as well. I also like having no hair because it shows off my earrings and other piercings.
Here are two looks I wore to the office this week:
|t-shirt: forever 21; pleated skirt: american apparel; necklace from this post|
I love this pleated skirt. It's thick and has a good weight to it. Also high-waisted and the deepest black. I like to wear this with a crop top shirt or a t-shirt--don't want to be TOO corporate and stuffy now. It reminds me of my art-book publishing days.
