Remember What I Said About Pink?

Well, I kind of dyed my hair a shade of flaming hot fuchsia today.

Johnny Cash earrings - custom made by Create Beautiful Beads
1980s sequinned top, purple necklace and bangles - thrifted
Frida necklace - handmade by darling Tamera
Silver dangly necklace - from hornacious Helga
1950s girdle worn as a skirt - Etsy
Leggings - Black Milk
Shoes and rings - craft markets
I have some incredibly HOT wenches to live up to ... I'd better not let the side down!

Beautiful Jet of Idee Fixe

Scrumptious Krista of Peetee's Palace.


Her Right Hotness, Clare of Miss Simmonds Says, can rock pink, lavender, red and platinum blonde.


Zandra, Queen of Rhodes.

Scarlett's hair looks good enough to eat ...

So does Helen's.

I love this tart.


This pic is blurry but shows my true hair colour ... well, the one I got out of a tube.





The culprit ... it's SO easy!!
Today I celebrated four years of sobriety with a passionfruit cake and of course, pink-hair-does-vintage-curls.
There's a bit of cake left, fancy some?

  6. Argh! I LOVE IT! You look utterly fabulous! That's the colour I used when I first coloured my hair. It's nice to be a flamingo. Keep thinking pink, its working! Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my last post, I was very touched :) xxx

  7. YAY you did it! Welcome to the Pink Hair Club! I LOVE the colour on you, it looks fantastic! I was just saying last night maybe I'd cut mine a bit shorter and go much brighter (its actually brighter again since that pic -- love playing with different pinks and mixing them, Manic Panic RULES!), harder to maintain when its longer. Happy 4 years of sobriety too, you gorgeous minx! XXX

  18. A very big hug and squeeze for the four year anniversary - that is wonderful! I had pink and bleached blonde hair for a summer an I loved it. The pink is such a happy colour, and not only did it make me smile, but it made everyone else smile too! You are rocking the fuschia curls. I'll have just a small piece of cake please.

  32. Check it! Fatler's commented on you! She may like your hair but I met she doesn't like the fact you're THIN, make sure you read her article On back fat and radical self-acceptance!
    anyway - HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, look at you! Why didn't this happen sooner? You look amazing. I love the curls, you're so damn good at them. That shade of pink is just perfect for you, I really really love it. More bendy poses and awesome stripey legs. Those shoes are delicious too. And the sequin top. I want Zandra's look! Stay pink! maybe go Lavender at some point, but mostly pink please! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  47. FUUUUUN! Every girl should dye their hair a crazy color at least once in their life. Mine was teal when I was in my early 20's--my virgin blonde hair soaked up that dye beautifully! Also, HUGE congrats on 4 years of sobriety! I celebrated my 5 years in January. Here's to living life in COLOR!

  52. If this is "kind of" colouring your hair pink, I wonder what full-on, all-out, all-the-way, 100 percent dying-your-hair-pink would look like. Sheesh, give a girl a warning when you go and do something like this - it's so stunning. Good thing I was sitting down. Gorgeous. Gorgeous! So gorgeous I could shove a whole piece of cake in my mouth at one time. Congrats on your sobriety! Yes, girdle as a skirt, I'm putting that on my list.
