my collection of hair clips
I feel that these might be
a fashion faux pas
I wear them and care not a fig
if they are "in" or "out"
Do you remember the former hairband days of Hilary Clinton ?
she's at it again!
Hairbands, or Alice Bands as they are known in the UK, are in fact, back "in fashion"
did they ever go "out"?
I think sweatbands did...
but what do I know?
I have heard little about clips...
maybe I am choosing not to see
or hear what might be said of them...
maybe they are unremarkable,
Tiffany's, Hermes or Cartier
could sell lovely gem encrusted clips
that one could wear
as hair jewelry
I have not found any quality clips
in my city
not in the antique malls
and I keep looking
I have been growing my hair
for a few months
and now it falls into my eyes
this bothers me when gardening or bending forward
so I have employed the use of these
as seen here
I am looking forward to when the length has reached my shoulders
my hairdresser says it will be probably be December or thereabouts
(I hope she refrains fom her scissor happy snipping)
I booked "colour only" for my next appointment
I will be able to put it up in a pony tail
or wear an updo
a french roll
quick and easy
with a few stray strands at the sides
two donuts that I bought from Finland
mette was instrumental in my purchase of these donuts...
it was the power of suggestion
perhaps even a mild case of blogger envy..
she has chic taste
and high end style
go visit and you'll see what I mean.
My lovely daughter came by the other day after her appointment at the salon
her hair falling just to her shoulders
much shorter now
she looks even prettier
(if that's possible)
her hair has more body
I love the loose soft waves
Here I am a few months ago...
and this month...
I do not feel very relaxed
having my picture taken
even if it is a self portrait
I must get over this...
or remove my glasses
a happy blur
fellow blogger materfamilias
is much braver than I
see for yourself!
and this recent post by mette
and while we are on the portrait topic
Lisa from a mid life of privilege
leading the way
back when she was a youngster!
I have damaged my glasses
(the scratch starts above the i in Fendi and goes to my finger)
I wear my glasses
to read or type or thread a needle
not to watch TV, garden, walk or drive...
the coating somehow got scratched when I was cleaning them
so the eye on the side of the affected lens sees the line
annoying me immensely
more than the hair falling into my gaze...
incidentally the side of the hair falling forward is also the scratched lens side
I could just dispense with the clips and let the hair fall where it may
the lens would be obscured
and all would be well
I have swapped back to my former pair as seen in the last image
and I will need to go and have my lens repaired or have a new pair made
so much for not shopping.
