My Birthday Season – 17 years and 2 months left to live

Two months ago I had 17 years and 4 months to live.  I’ve used up 2 of those months.  Time is slipping through my fingers.  I’m thinking about a make-over to match my new retirement lifestyle.

My current “look” is PROFESSIONAL. I try to project an image of normalcy for my clients.  It helps instill deep trust in my intelligence and respect for my accumulated wisdom.  Now NO HOLDS BARRED.  I can be meeeeeeee.

I googled fashion trends so I don’t look out of place in my new role.

1. Starting with my hair.  I’m going to change the style which requires letting the sides grow longer so there is enough hair to style.

First step: Letting the sides get a bit longer

2.  Once sides of hair grow out create a signature style, something symbolic of stepping out of the old and into the new.


Second or TWO-STEP

3.  Next is wardrobe. Out with the black pants, black skirts, mono-chromatic tops, structured jackets – all calculated to allow clients to use me as a blank canvas to project upon just as Freud would have advised.

I love color
Step 3: Reflect my inner artist.

4.  Gotta take a nap and rest now cuz the thought of shopping is wearing me out and I hear getting enough rest helps the hair grow.

I’m a work in progress.

  1. The 3 Stooges hairstyle is probably not the best idea, though I like the grown-out version with sculpted shoes – say, you could rent it out by putting designers or store logos on the shoe (would there be room for a DSW or JimmyChooz logo?).


  2. While I am the last person on the planet to offer fashion advise to anyone, especially someone I only met yesterday, I can’t help but suggest that pearls are out this season. Otherwise, looks good to me!


  3. you are not just a work in progress you are a certified crazy person and I say that with love and respect. stop with the years and months left. Please.
