I completely forgot to blog about this as it happened when I was on a blog-break.
Some of you might have noticed something in my Birthday Masquerade pictures … No hedgehog. In fact, it was quite bouffant in a more Marie Antoinette style, wasn’t it? Well, that’s because I don’t have enough hair to hedgehog anymore!
After a couple of months of not being able to shake the idea, I had my hair cut into a crop:
Sorry it’s just a quick photo the Gent took – I really should get a better shot of it!
Anyway, since I had it done some very generous people started making Audrey Hepburn comments (ha, I wish I looked like her!), but it did get me watching some of her films and I’ve discovered a love for her! Hence the current obsession with late 50s/early 60s clothing.
Maybe next time I get it cut, I’ll got a bit more BIG, like her wonderful hair in How to Steal a Million (a really fun caper – watch it if you haven’t already!):
And it doesn’t show her hair any better, but I do just love this photo:
Funny coincidence – I only saw this film for the first time the other day as it happened to be on TV, but Audrey wears a black lace mask in it. Of course, hers is far more stylish than mine, but my masquerade mask (back in November) was black lace too … strange!
I’ll leave you with the old school trailer for the film – so different from today’s trailer style!
