On my @justgigifashion Instagram the other day, some of you may have noticed this picture of me with purple hair (!!!!). Sadly, no: I did not dye it, and it's not my real hair. It's my new wig. Although I was very hesitant about the idea of wearing a wig occasionally, I'm now very glad I bought it because it expresses me.
This previous Saturday, I wore my wig for the first time in public. Honestly, it was so scary. I was scared it would fall off, that people would know it was fake, or that people would judge me for having purple hair. So, I went out with my boyfriend to a place I would feel most confident: my favorite tea shop. Instantly I spotted a barista with short, dyed light purple hair and felt more comfortable when she complimented me.
Just thought I'd share. Also: please vote for me so I can get a fashion internship in NYC at ASOS this summer! I'm very excited about this amazing opportunity so I really hope I can win.
