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 http://beautyisathingofthepast.blogspot.ca/2009/02/cartwheel.html

and these pictures of great celebrity 60s updos here:

My Vintage Pattern Collection

Hey Ladies,
I just saw Casey's amazing pattern thrift find on her blog http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/2012/05/pattern-windfall/
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?
