The cut...

Tuesday, 11 May 2010
Good old Nikki! She chopped it all off for me... I no longer look like a cross between Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Jonathan Creek. It feels soooo good to have my face and neck free of mop too!
Its a bit 1980's, but never mind. I can just about live with this while it grows the barbed wire perm out.
A very kind blog reader suggested rubbed in olive oil for my scalp, so I shall be pretending my heads a pizza and doing that tonight!
Thank you everyone for your advice! Much appreciated!
See... I did have a neck... I knew it was there somewhere!
Im really enjoying this button through linen dress from the charity shop. It has a beautiful ruffled bib front and tiny puff sleeves. I bought it about 2 years ago and never wore it because its only just above the knee in length. I popped it on over my new petticoat and left it un buttoned (shocking...) from the hips down. It gives quite a pretty layered effect. I shall no longer walk away from short button front dresses in future. They work well worn like this with petticoats!

Back to work on my DORIS shoes. Alas, I dont think they will be ready for the holiday adventure...

Wednesday update: and now I look like Jeremy Clarkson (without the car)....


  1. Sorry it didn't go well the first time Ren. I have the same ongoing struggle with my hair. A few weeks I was determined to grow it all one length and had it trimmed so that I was 'going in that direction', now I want it to be how it was before, as I have decided layers work much better on my hair. Why can't we ever be satified with what we have?

  2. He the 80s I SOOO wanted nice straight hair so I could do the symmetrical 'Farrah Fawcet' flicks on either side. However, a wavy mop with a mind of its own, a natural side parting AND a 'cow-lick' meant hours spent with the curling tongs were to no avail. Mostly I've come to terms with my hair and generally like it, but that's probably because I just let it do what it wants to do!

  3. Hi Ren just found your blog and am now following. I have drooled over your shop and ear-marked a couple of items!
    Your new hairstyle is great...wish I was brave enough to lop my tresses off!
    have a great day.

  4. it looks great, it really suits you! x

  5. Nice choice, Ren, looks great.

    Rather be Jonathon Creek than Jonathon Ross I think... ;)

    Have a great week


    PS Love that layered look you have going

  6. This is a great style and looks soooo soft. The oil will take a couple of washes to remove, so best do it looong before your holiday! :)
