in response to tuesday's post, there was a comment on the heartbreakingly pretty haircut pictured, "it only works on a few." that poster's point was that this haircut+linda evangelista = a synergistic effect. "it is the charm of finding the perfect 'thing'." an excellent point. the powerful effect of the combo is precisely because of the combination here - so the implication is that i should not be coveting the hair, but instead the impact of the right hair on the right face.
ooops, too late.
but i wasn't thinking about whether or not it would work on me as i stood, scissors poised in one hand, hunk of hair grasped firmly in the other. (i didn't think much at all, clearly.) i just wanted that dutch boy bob, and i didn't want to not do it just because it might not work on me. essentially, the inside me trumped the outside me. when i think of it this way, instead of thinking that i butchered my hair on a whim, i feel gratified that i did it for myself, my truest self, and not out of consideration for how i would appear/appeal to others.
which one takes priority in dictating your style, your inside you or your outside you?
