Me and my hair

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Sometimes I think it looks down at my outfit and thinks "Crazy shoes, crazy shirt...let battle commence"

Then it turns out fecking HUGE in photos, just to keep up appearances. See?






Dress - AX Paris, via Oxfam
Shirt - Ryan's Vintage, Manchester
Shoes - Irregular Choice via ebay
Badge - birthday present from my brother



The dress was a veritable snip at £2.99. The shoes, at £16.50 inc p&p, were a tad more expensive but considering they'd only been worn once or twice and probably retailed at £65 or so, I still think I got a bargain.

  9. It's all fab including the lovely thick mane but my fave bit is the badge - just very cute and tongue in cheek (unless of course you were a Head Girl in which case, quite right!)

  13. I can sympathise with the hair situation, mine is really thick too and can look stupidly massive. But it is better to have thick, luscious hair than none at all!

    Cute outfit, I like the shirt under the pinafore.
