Walk a mile in my shoes???

Well, they are pretty good!

Noticed a trend. I tend to binge buy shoes.

For me shoes are a bit like buses.

You don't see any for ages, then you get three in quick succession....

That's what's happened here

I treated myself to these fabulous fluffy marabou mule slippers...

Outragously kitsch, but I love them!

 Also bought a pair of shoes that I'd been after for an absolute age...

Brown suede and pony skin Brothel Creepers.

Love them with my skinny jeans.... So practical too.

OK,  so it's not typical vintage styling for ladies, but fantastic for when you have to chase after your autistic son when he's just done a runner, and still stamps a little bit of the vibe on your outfit.

But then, I do like these little peep toe leopard print wedges  with the skinny jeans too (Bought these a couple of weeks ago)

....and I can actually run in them for a short distance, if I have to!

Binge over.

They do say things happen in threes!

Rediscovering My Tresses.

My hair is the longest it been since I can remember. I feel that I've rediscovered its versatility .
It's currently nigh on waist length. 
Straight & rather difficult to curl or to hold a wave. 

Really like trying new hairstyles with a vintage feel. Here's some recent  photos,

Experiment after accidentally spraying with XXL Batiste dry shampoo.  
(Had meant to give it a quick blast with the standard formula)  So much body, but....

 ......had to create a quick up-do to cover my Dry Shampoo blunder. 
Rather pleased & will try this again!

Quite like having the front elevated into either a quiff or a faux fringe  

Variation on a theme: Quiff with hair down

...& with a fascinator

...& in it's natural state

I feel that I've been very fortunate with my hair. With the colour, the texture & how versatile it it. It's really low maintenance. On a daily basis, it's just a case of 'wash & go' 
....I  mostly let it dry naturally.  

Looking forward to having a styling consultation with the lovely team at Bella Me. They specialise in Vintage hair styles... can't wait!
