I cannot for the life of me get this top to look the same color in photographs as in real life. I promise that it is not, in fact, a bright tomato red, but rather extremely hot pink–closer to the color of my hair than it appears.
Pinky swear. Would I lie to you? (Well, maybe. I do enjoy lying. It’s a trait I inherited from my father.)
Do you have any garments that tend to upset the camera? This old post does a much better job of approximating the color, but it still isn’t quite right. And it looks like I was already complaining about the same color problem in this other old post. Siiiiigh.
At least there are still leaves lying around that I can use as stupid props.
Did you have a good weekend, folks? Did you do anything special? I did! I will have a little surprise (yes, that same surprise that I keep going on about) to share with you later this week, and also Tito and I participated in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and went to my first-ever MLS soccer game. Go Earthquakes!
Between the surprise and the soccer game, our Read-a-Thon participation was not as dedicated as it has been in previous years, but we still had a good time, and we each finished a book! Go wait with bated breath over at Nisaba Be Praised for one or the other of us to post a review, I dare you.
You can totally see that my hair is growing out, as hair does; I, unfortunately, have the burden to bear of significantly darker roots than Tia does, so that tends to be my motive for redying, as opposed to the dye fading too much. I just gotta hold out a couple weeks until Tia’s mom can give me a pre-wedding haircut, and then I’m going purple all the way. Have any of y’all ever used one of Special Effects‘ purple dyes? Purple is actually one of the few colors I’ve never tried, mostly because it’s purported to fade more quickly than any other color, but I’m leaning towards Pimpin Purple for its reddish tones. I could be swayed, though, if anybody has a suggestion!
