Graduand


[Leather Skirt: Balmain, Pocket Tang: A. Wang, Boots: A. Wang, Bear Necklace: Comme Des Garcons]

I graduate tomorrow! Very, very nervous for the whole walking-on-stage-and-having-name-called-out-whilst-wearing-hat-and-gown thing. Arrrgghhh. But my parents have booked a table at a lovely restaurant for afterwards, and food makes most things better..!

Also, a guy at work saw me without my hat on today (I work in a bakery so wear a hideous mesh trilby) and was like "why did you cut your hair off??", basically insinuating that it looked awful and short hair on a woman could do nothing but make them look ugly!

It is such a ridiculous point of view, but it makes me wonder if other men/women might think I look unfeminine when they see I have short hair?
Hmmm. I personally love having short hair, and love seeing other young women with great short haircuts, but sometimes in certain nightclubs, for example, where many woman are wearing long hair extensions and have glamourous long, curly hair etc I do feel slightly self concious that there aren't any other short haired girls around me. =/

However, this co-worker in question also bragged about his use of sunbeds and moisturiser and appears to think of himself as a"lady's man" (haaa), so his opinion on my haircut does not particularly matter, haha!

P.S Comments tomorrow promise promise promise. I feel bad doing a post when I've not returned comments yet!

  2. Urgh. Loads of guys are like that. They have it set in their minds that girls have long hair and guys have short hair. Even if a girl looks 500% better with short hair, they can't get past it.

    Don't worry about it. He's probably not at all fashionable and I bet you don't like his hair either.

    Your hair is spectacular! I wish I could have short hair, but I have too many jaw issues for that!

  6. what a great skirt and boots!
    when I cut my hair off, all boys were like; what a pity! I don't think I know a boy who prefers short hair above long hair. maybe it's their instinct or something?

  12. Oh Yay! Congratulations! I think you look gorgeous with your short hair. Not many girls can pull off short hair and long hair is easier to have because it can hide a lot of flaws. xxoxoxo

  16. You definitely don't need to listen to guys that go tanning on a regular basis and use selftanner. Ew.
    I like the short hair, it looks good on you! I want my hair long again but just because I want it and not because other people tell me that short hair is unfeminine. Your hair looks great the way it is!

  23. I really wonder why guys can't appreciate short hair. It's edgy and cute and leaves so much more of one's face to be seen and appreciated.

    Men, they're impossible sometimes.

    Congrats on graduation!

    I think you look bloody awesome with your short hair. Your colleague has such a dated outlook! I always envy girls who can get away with short hair!

  25. Love your graduation outfit! Those gowns are surprisingly heavy!
    You look great with short hair, I used to have a bob, and I always felt very sharp and different with it. I'm growing my hair at the moment for a change, but I can see myself going back to a bob
