Inspiration: Duo Tone Hair

Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm Chicago weather – but I feel like I’m in need of some spring reinvention prematurely!

Back in late December I went to an Aveda salon to get asymmetrical ‘melted’ highlights and am loving the look. The plan is to eventually start playing with the blonde/caramel pieces by adding some manic panic electric hues.

And since hair is on my brain I wanted to share this adorable look that I happened upon on Pinterest. I love the stark contrasts of the two shades and may venture down this path at some point. For now I’ll rock my current do but will keep this bi-polar one in mind for the future.

Meet the Models: Mumu

I just couldn’t resist sharing this adorable photo!

Fellow crafter and artist extroadinaire Angel D’Amico of Ad Love purchased one of my sweater bow ties at the Renegade Craft Fair. After bringing the piece home she made a wonderful discovery – her cat Mumu could rock the bow too!

This handsome gent looked so dapper in his new accessory that it inspired me to design some duds for our furry friends. So keep your eyes peeled for some Pierogi Picnic Pet items soon!
