Thought I'd do something rather unusual and post a shot of a very casual look of mine that I wore to run some errands and catch a film with friends later in the evening.
A few months back I ordered a pair of custom made 1940s high waist trousers from Big Beautiful Barbara Brown and the postman brought them to me just yesterday. I ordered them in a grey wool mix fabric because when I made the order, it was still really cold in here. Thankfully, the fabric isn't too warm and the trousers are actually perfect for the season. I'm definitely a dress and skirts kinda gal and I rarely wear pants but I really do like these. They're super comfortable to wear! I've never had wide leg trousers before and I'm not entirely sure if they're all that flattering on me but at least they're so 'easy' to wear.
And the hair... Let me just take a moment to boast that I haven't dyed my hair in at least a month and last time it was done by my hairdresser was in early February. So yeah, it seems the red is finally lasting a longer time without fading! WOOHOO! I also ordered some hot sticks and this was the second time I've done my hair with them, loosely following this tutorial by Fleur. I have to say that I'm LOVING hot sticks and I'm so glad I finally got 'em! The curls are similar to the ones I get from using perm rods (my favorites for cold sets) but without the god-awful frizz - and headache - I always get from sleeping on curlers. Plus, the curls actually lasted throughout most of the day, which is impressive considering that a hot roller set tends to last for, say, half an hour in my hair.
