I would have liked to wear red and pink for Valentine's Day, but I don't actually have any red and pink that I can wear together! So I went with the Lovebirds dress instead. This was one of the first vintage dresses I bought (I snagged it for such a bargain price on ebay - I can't imagine how), and remains one of my favourites - it's featured in at least three previous outfit posts! It has the most adorable print of little bluebirds with flowers and love notes, and is probably to blame for my obsession with novelty prints. In keeping with the Valentine's theme I accessorised in red and pink.
I have to confess that I am clearly deluded about what season we're in. I was wearing a jacket, but I was still hopelessly underdressed for the chill. I have this problem that I look out of the window, see blue sky and think "SUMMER!" No. It is not summer. It is February. It is cold.
Also, have I mentioned I need a haircut? (Only about twenty times). It's so long now that to do these victory rolls my arms were fully extended just to reach the end of my hair! i've been putting some thought into how I'm going to have it cut - probably a longish 40s midi cut, with emphasis on easy-to-victory-roll. Meanwhile I'm going off the idea of a perm; if I still have to use rollers anyway it hardly seems worth it.
