No Debutante - Kiss and Make Up

 I have been experimenting with mixing up my style a bit, I am currently very into the 1950s...again....but I like to mix things up with other items in my wardrobe to update the look for now. Here I have mixed a long over sized preppy cardigan with my good ol' H&M fifties style leopard print dress and worn it over my 1950s cut Vivien of Holloway jeans (layering dresses over trousers is a big look for this AW) just to confuse matters I have accessorised this outfit with my Dr Martens boots.

Now my hair is longer, I can start to experiment a bit more, I thought I'd try out a high top knot for short hair - not an easy thing to achieve but I think I may have pulled it off here. I had to keep the little bunches as the lower part of my hair is still growing out the undercut, nearly a year later!

I used my Babyliss curling wand below to curl up my hair in preparation for my Halloween costume at the Hoochie Coochie where I was Djing later that day. My hair looks a bit like a wig in the second image, I'm not sure about it but thought I'd show you for variety if nothing else! A Hoochie image to follow at the end of post, be patient!

(below) The day after Hoochie, I am hiding a hangover well and have been inspired by the latest issue of Pigeons and Peacocks to load my hair up with hairgrips. They put in twice as many as me but I was hungover and couldn't cope with it!!
I have been inspired by Louise Gray's childlike vs punk hairstyles, using cute clips and ribbons as accessories for bunches etc, Sylvie even got involved with the double hair clip trend, her hair is getting longer than mine, if only she'd leave those damn hair clips and bands in for more than 5 minutes....she tried to brush her hair the other day, how cute is that?? I don't think my sons even considered a hairbrush until they were about 5 years old!

As promised here's a sneaky peek at my Hoochie Coochie Halloween costume. We were  clearly Kiss Zombies!! I had pinned up the curly hair and toned it pink and orange using eye shadows - an easy thing to do on platinum blond hair! I'm off to a secret launch party this evening, I shall be back with some images and goodies (hopefully) very soon. ND xx
