Looks like I'm sticking with the brown pencil outlines. This week I took the inspiration for the poses from various online shops I already had open on my laptop. Also, I tried (very hard, it's not easy) to draw the heads smaller to make the drawings look more realistic and lifelike. I have mixed feelings about the outcome but will keep it up for a while. Just to make sure what I want. So now without further ado, the outfits of week 7!

When I cut my hair a few weeks back I was thrilled about all the new possibilities that come with it. I have to admit that my first hair styling attempts took ages! I feel like I still have to figure things out that work for me, but I'm getting there. Practice is everything! And of course I did my research (I'm a scientist!) which means that I raided Pinterest for hair tutorials and inspiration and collected a few, that I want to try sometime. If you have a bob or a lob, too, these hair style ideas might be something you would want to try out!
1. easy waves
2. twisted half-updo
3. knot tie updo
4. ballet bun
5. braided back
6. fishtail braid half-updo
7. quick rolled braid updo
8. messy knotted bun with a braided band
9. mini twists
10. easy 1960's-inspired updo
I can't wait to try every single one out and make my hair look pretty and all. I love the messy knotted bun with the braided band! My hair lacks the texture to pull that style off, but maybe if I curl it first and with tons of hairspray ...?

One month of outfits is over! Well, technically it's almost two months and I'm obviously a bit behind on the drawings, but still... Here's the review of all my outfit drawings of January. You'll find that most outfits are from a Monday, Tuesday or Friday. That's because I'm working on those days and have to dress up and make my hair etc. On all the other days you'll probably find me in sweatpants, my boyfriends huge sweaters and with dirty hair. So, well, not really outfit drawing material. Some facts that you now know about my wardrobe and style:
- I own exactly one coat, two scarves and three pairs of shoes that I wear during winter
- I wear black pants a lot
- the ponytail is my best friend
- 90% of my socks are bright, colorful and probably have piggies or hearts on them
- I can't bring myself to put on a dress or a skirt when it's freezing cold outside. I just can't.
What I wore today drawings for the first week of February. The week where I got my hair cut (gasp!).

The past few months I was constantly annoyed by my long, heavy, boring hair that I was only wearing in ponytails at that point. I know, I know, there are a thousands of awesome hairdos for long hair, but my hair is very thick and also super straight and sleek by nature with no texture or natural wave or anything that would make a bobby pin stick in it for longer than 5 minutes. You can't just twirl here and braid there and put in three bobby pins, like they do in all the hairstyle videos, and you look perfect all day long. And to be honest, I'm too lazy to curl it for 2 hours before I can even begin to style it.
You see: The long hair had to go. So I took some time, I made an appointment, and I got my hair cut. And I love it! Hello new hair! Hello new possibilities!
Only drawback: I was told that I look 5 years younger than I did before. Considering that I already did look 5 years younger than I actually am, I'm now back at sweet sixteen. Oh please no! I started to wear red lipsticks to make me look a bit older than that. And because red lipstick is awesome. I'm looking forward to looking like 30 when I'm 40, though. Ha! Great times ahead.
So what do you think of my new hair? Is a bob, long or short, something you would try?
I have to go now. Have to search Pinterest for hairstyles for shorter hair. Bye!
