Today I finally got my hair recoloured after seven weeks worth of roots and faded ends. I think this will be my final flourish with the red. I love the colour dearly, probably ranking numbero uno of all the colours I’ve been, but the maintenance is beyond belief and I cannot justify the upkeep. Colour care products can and do work; but sadly, red will inevitably always fade. I am already planning what colour to toy with next and it shall either be a rich coppery-ginger or white blonde with peachy sections weaved through. My hairdresser will probably refuse to pacify me with either for fear of my hair falling out!
I bought this dress last weekend, but today was its first outing, as I had to track down a suitable under-layer for fear of exposing myself to the world. I used a simple slip I had from another dress and it seemed to do the job. I really love the flair 70’s sleeves and the detailing around the hem. I wore it quite casually today but feel you could also dress this up for an evening soiree with some heels and a skinny belt perhaps. I don’t feel I really need to justify the headband – I love daisies and for a £1 from Primark, it was a no brainer. I also feel very proud that I took my first steps today in the shoes and socks combo, something I’ve wanted to embrace for ages now, but never found the right outfit to do so with.
I hope you are all enjoying the extended weekend. I am venturing to London tomorrow after my morning Zumba class. I need to return a few items of clothing and then pick up some ‘essentials’ from MAC, ie: foundation and powder. I am also hoping they have Candy Yum-Yum lipstick in stock there too as I have concluded that yes, I really do need another pink lippie!
