Color Me Bad!

Jacket: H&M ; Shoes: Demonia ; Sweater: WetSeal ; Scarf: HelloKitty

When I was younger I remember going to watch the movie “Run Lola Run” and being totally and completely fascinated by Franka Potente’s bright red hair. I tried really hard, almost like clockwork every morning, to convince my mom to let me have red hair and of course she refused every single time. So I got the next best color, burgundy! And then I got blond and then I got dark brown and then I got black and then blond again and then I got broke… by the “broke” part I mean I started earning my own money and did not have pappa’s [dad’s] money to spend on hair salon’s every couple of months. So now the L’oreal DYI hair color has to do the trick… where is my father when I need him!!! [j/k]

So we spotted this ultra cute chick on the street. Her hard-edged Goth look combined with such bright colored highlights and eye shadow, all just worked for me.  Look at all the colors in her hair. She has yellow, red, purple, blue and ofcourse black, all on one head and they all work soo well together. I even asked her if she would do my hair, but she lives in philly hence not…  I must have such highlights some day. I MUST!! [Noone, I repeat, NO ONE tell my mom... capeesh?]


  1. Hahaha, lovely burst of color!!! I loved this shoot, I outrightly asked this couple -" So what are you guys? Emo? Goth?" they very sweetly nodded no and said they were from Philadelphia! They were awesome! Hope your checking this Franka?


  2. I wish I was cool enough to pull of her hair/makeup. I love her scarf, great pics!
