(Or “sleep tight, dream right” or “sleep tight, grim ride”. Am I right? I don’t think even Interpol settled on the lyrics there for a while. I want to say I read somewhere that they changed the lyrics a couple times but I can’t really say for sure. It might just be that it irritates me that it took me so long to figure them out only to discover I’m not 100% sure)
Basically, I am getting my $13 worth out of this jacket. It goes to work with me almost every day. It has been grocery shopping (Dude. It is always so cold on the freezer aisle that I find I need a jacket), it has been to the movies. It is not, however, going to see Gaga. I’m taking my Alexander McQueen to that. Or maybe a leather jacket. But I’m for sure aiming for Diet Coke cans. Wish me luck.
But still. It’s getting a lot of wear. I did tell Nathan when we were taking these at 8:30 AM one morning that it was already so hot outside that you guys were sadly not going to get to see the way the jacket looked on with this outfit, but trust. It was perfect.
I’ve been having some issues with my hair lately. I’m stressed. About a lot of things. (I hope it doesn’t irritate you guys that I don’t go into all that, but really, who wants to hear it on a fashion blog?) And some of the ways that is showing is my weight gain, which I have discussed, and my hair loss, which I have not. It’s not at tragic levels yet, but it is alarming to me. It’s happened before, but my hair is so long now that it seems worse. I have some places on my scalp I feel are sparse. Nathan doesn’t see it. And no one else has mentioned it either. But for me, it’s there. It’s noticeable. And it is, quite frankly, freaking me out.
Nathan knows this. And while he doesn’t see it himself, and he thinks it might be a case of “all in my head”, he knows that doesn’t make it any less real for me. And last week he bought me a set of really nice volumizing shampoo and conditioner from the fancy hair styling products side of the store we never shop from. It’s the small gestures like that that really show that he cares. And I noticed an immediate difference. My hair looked and felt fuller and I found I was able to think about the problem much less. The Brand he got was called “Big Sexy Hair”, which kind of cracks me up, but it smells amazing, and like I said, instant results after one wash.
