opinions, please...again! (and 2 dilemmas solved)

Since we bloggers are of the slightly opinionated sort, ...I know you all wouldn't mind giving me your opinion on yet another pressing matter. You see, I have a hair appointment next week and although I know I shouldn't, it's hard to refrain from thinking about changing my hair again. No, I'm not going short. I can't carry off short hair. I'd look too much like a boy! It's the color. Should I:
a. ~~stay the same color (my mom would say yes here b/c it's my natural color, and God created my hair color to match my eyes, and blah, blah, blah...)
b. ~~do highlights again (this can get scary and I could end up looking too blonde like in 2nd photo from 2 years ago)
c. ~~go a little darker--I call it Blackest Brown. Very dramatic. (No pics of this one)

a.

b.

And YES I finally received my GG handbag on Tuesday. I ordered the 2 stap satchel and carried it for the first time today and it was perfect.

Regarding my other dilemma--we played with the iPhone and the Blackberrys today while out, and my current opinion is that the iPhone is way too difficult for me to use. Lil Petunia was already surfing the internet at her favorite children's website on the iPhone next to me, while I was still trying to spell H-E-L-L-O on the keypad. Yikes. We went over to the Blackberry and I was texting away within seconds. I told Hubby he can get the iPhone if he wants, but I'll take a Blackberry. Now, which Blackberry? I heard they are coming out with a new one in a few weeks. Hmmm...

yes wait for the new because....it comes in PINK!! I so wish I'd waited! I have a red one- world edition for when we travel out of the country- if you travel outside and want to stay connected you have that to think about :)

and i can't believe how blonde you can go! you have the right skin color for it...seriously. My .02? Fall and winter I like to keep it dark- and spring and summer, make it lighter....so I would keep it dark but either way it would look great.

Petunia said...

PINK?? Woo-hoo! :-)~

Mrs.D said...

I think you should enhance what you have, not changing it too much. Like a rich chocolate brown. So a bit darker, but yet warm.

Muffy said...

I would say keep the dark hair and add a few caramel highlights around the face. NO blonde (although that color does look good on you!) It would be something new and fun!

Muffy

Kappa Prep said...

I was going to say exactly what Muffy said, go for caramel highlights. I like you blonde, but I think just a few lighter strands will look great too!

Randall said...

For your hair I would find a compromise between your normal color and the blonde. More subtle highlights would look lovely.

Marketing Gurl said...

I vote for sticky with brown. I think it will be great for the winter. I also think that going right below the chin would look nice. I like your long hair though so perhaps just layer it more?? Love, MG PS. I love your new stripes!

Petunia said...

I am definitely getting a few inches cut off. Yes, forgot to mention that. Just not short short.

pinkpolkadotaa said...

I agree with Muffy and Kappa, a few highlights, but not too many. And I agree with a blackberry. That iphone is way too complicated for me, maybe i'm just technologically challenged...

Jenji said...

I like your nat color! On the hives you are right that is exactly what the Dr. said. I am a lot better, and I hope they never come back:)

Kate said...

I agree with Muffy, and Kappa, and Pinkpolkadotaa (and anyone else who said what they said!)

I am so bad at typing on the iphone. Maybe cause my nails are long? It took me forever to send an email on my friend's!

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Wow..y ou look great as a blonde, but dont go any darker, as it may wash you out.

Either way, you are very pretty.

In the mind of a male, that is a compliment...hope you take it that way.

I like your current hair color. I think it's really pretty, but whatever you do will look great.

I just wanted to let you know I am holding a blog makeover giveaway and I thought you might be interested. You can sign up on my blog.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

I wanted to comment about the phone debate.

I have had the Blackberry 8700C, the Blackberry Pearl, and the iPhone.

Hands down, the iPhone is the best one. It is not remotely comparable to the Blackberry. And since you are also an apple person, I can tell you that you will really appreciate it.

Yes, the blackberry is easier to type on at first, but once you know how to use the iPhone, it is easy as well. And it is so much more user friendly. And what's really nice, is it remembers words and names you type frequently and uses auto type to fill them in. I have had it almost a year and I still really do love it.

If you have any more iPhone Q's I'll be happy to help. It is, in my opinion, the best choice you could make.

Becs said...

Hello Petunia, Not sure about the phone debate. I tried to use RockStar hubby's iphone and couldn't figure it out, but he loves it! I really like you hair blonde/brown-ish! Best, Becs

Landlocked Mermaid said...

I think it is in the air. this is the time to change it up. YOU are beautiful and your hair and look are very Charlotte York.. I think you carry off the blonde so well-- but think of the upkeep.. As man of the girls voted the in between is a great idea.. from a 'non' natural blonde-- remmeber you can always keep adding in a few hightlights here and there.. xo

lisagh said...

My personal rule has always been "If you can be blonde, you should be blonde!"

And you definitely can!!!

Chitown Meg said...

I vote for blonde. You look GREAT in that photo!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

Apparently, you could go either way. I like your dark hair but the highlights looked really good on you too. The caramel highlights others mentioned sound like a good compromise for fall and winter. I sent you an e-mail about a surprise...

Darrin said...

Geez... you look awesome both ways! You could pull off either color. I know that's absolutely no help at all, so I'm sorry! You could always flip a coin...

Mindi said...

okay, i think the BLOND looks hot on you!! i've never seen you blond, so i'm intrigued.....
but you look great no matter what, so i agree with darrin. flip a coin! it's a win/win.

ps i heart the pink and red blackberrys. jealous.

Caffeine Court said...

You look great either way! I'm voting for somewhere in the middle.

Natural color with a few lighter highlights framing your face.

Oh and by the way...did you like the white Toy Watch at Bloomies? I'm wondering what it's like in person. Also, do you think it would look okay in winter?

lauren said...

Blond highlights is my vote of course sis.

Belle in Bloom said...

You look great both ways! But you know how I feel about blond. ;) Love it.
I ordered the blackberry curve in red. I debated about the pink but went with red. I'm afraid the pink would always look dirty. But remember...I have BOYS. Everything is dirty at my house! ha!

Jaina said...

I actually think you look great in both pictures, but I'm a fan of natural color.

Monogramchick said...

You are beautiful with both hair colors but I love the blonde hair!

I am addicted to my Blackberry, you won't regret the decision :)

The Mrs. said...

I think the highlights look fabulous!
