dress & faux fur coat: VINTAGE; turtle neck: FOREVER 21; shoes: had them for ages; bow headband: from a JEWELMINT box
I often wish I had a time machine or one of those Tardis-thingy-majjigies, then I could firsthand experience the swinging sixties in London, for example, or do the hustle somewhere in the seventies.
Today's outfit is very sixties inspired.
I really couldn't have a sixties inspired outfit and not have the Bardot-esque hair nor the cat-eye eyeliner. Two things that if truth be told gives me a little anxiety in the morning, especially when you have an appointment to get to first thing and not a lot of time to get ready.
In these moments, I must say I'm rather proud of myself when I find myself making discoveries instead of crumbling under the pressure. Today's discovery has to do with my hair. I'm still yet to master the task of teasing my hair and no amount of backcombing, dry shampoo, or hairspray can get it as big as I want it, especially on what I will call, "an uncooperative hair day." Nearly giving up and throwing in the towel, I noticed these elastic bows on the boxes Jewelmint gives you with your orders. Boom! An instant cute headband, which seemed to give a bit of oomph to my hair. Pretty awesome, right?
Awwwww yeah! Jo - 1. Uncooperative hair - nil. High fives to everyone!
