Want to know what’s been bothering me for the last few days? Hair-do’s. We have been invited to a wedding and sorting my hair is proving to be much more complicated than deciding on an outfit. The outfit was sorted in 5 minutes. I am wearing Dvf’s Taffy from Spring 2006 collection, my flower t-bar sandals from 2004 or something like that and a clutch given to me by a special friend. The idea of a hair-do was a simple bun sort of like Lily Bass (or the photo above), very simple-classic-classy style that would compliment the shape of the dress better than long waves. The problem is that my hair, being all natural, untreated, silky and plentiful (not complaining here), doesn’t seem to hold anything, including the bun or hair pins. Highly frustrating, I tell you (here I really am complaining a little). Oh, and I really REALLY do not like using a few liters of hair products on my mane either.
So right now I have another 24 hours to practise that do or go for a ponytail. I will report back next week. Maybe even get a chance to shoot myself – the outfit, hair, make-up and all. As a preview – these are the shoes I picked for the big day.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
