1960s Updo Inspiration

Hey Ladies, Hope you all enjoyed the best friend tag with my friend Jackie. It started out as a Audrey Hepburn inspired up do but then we started talking about Mad Men and as I was teasing and pinning, it quickly turned into a Joan Holloway do.

For this look I simply:
- parted hair from ear to ear
- teased back section
- twisted top back section into a bun and twisted bottom back section into a french twist
- incorporated front parted section into the bun and pinned in place

check out the inspiration for this look on Beauty is a Thing of the Past blog

My Vintage Pattern Collection

Hey Ladies,
I just saw Casey's amazing pattern thrift find on her blog
and thought it might be fun to share my pattern collection, though now small in comparison. I'd love to see yours as well, so if you're a fellow blogger leave a link in the comments.... even if you're not I'd love to hear your thoughts on my collection -  your favourites or any fabric suggestions.

Prom Inspiration: Then and Now

My Prom Dress 2007

My dress inspiration....

My dress was more simple. I loved the colour of Michelle's dress and wish I could have had a bit more drama to my dress, though I loved it all the same.

What would be my dress inspirations now?
