mustards, plums and braids
Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week and that it has not involved the kind of headache that makes you dizzy, unlike some types around here. *Hmm, yes, that would be me. Anyway, I think it is high time I posted these, which are from the Sunday after this Saturday. I was VERY happy to get back into the red lips, I can tell you! So happy, in fact, I really hammed it up taking some photos. The dress is a wonderfully full skirted 1980's one, and I love the yellows and plums together, on the rich black background. Dark florals have always been a favourite of mine. The colours are more suited to Autumn, really, but what are you going to do! I was so excited to wear it, and anyway, it matched my new Melissa shoes perfectly. My hair do was inspired by a picture of Hedi Lamaar wearing braids and flowers, and I am Very Happy – caps requried – to tell you I have since coloured my regrowth... which is a very good thing, seeing as it was about 2 minutes from becoming officially ombre. (It will always be a mystery to me why in some lights, my naturally very light brown hair looks black, but there it is.) It feel uh-mazing to have sorted the regrowth out!!! Lots of exclamation marks!!!!! Now I am looking forward to doing more some hairstyles, getting a straw hat for summer and making some more big plans this weekend. Excited!
