fairy floss hair
Yesterday I felt like a change. I want to wear my hair like a cloud, big and high and fluffy. I teased it and pinned it up, and added flowers.
I have mentioned before I want fairy floss hair, and now all I need is the pale pink shade.
I am going to wear my hair like this for the rest of the week. I don't normally do anything to style my hair, so I need a little more practice to get it right. I do love it up like this. My hair resists most styling efforts, and even intense teasing with heavy duty hairspray falls out in minutes, as my hair stubbornly returns to it's natural straight state. Any tips would be most appreciated!
Today I am wearing an outfit inspired by the 1940s, perhaps inspired in turn by the slight victory roll-shape in my hair.
Starting at my feet, I have red peep-toe heels with an ankle strap, and thick woolly socks over grey tights. I am looking for a new red pair, as I prefer a chunky heel – ideally I would love a 1940s shape.
To keep warm, I have my vintage 1940s grey wool cardi, worn over a black knee length dress.
I wish I could take better photos. I need to buy a tripod, so waving the camera around my room is the best I can do for now. I hope this gives an idea of the details I have today. :)
