I knew I had a shirt somewhat similar hiding in my closet, so I dug around and found it. It has no shirring, and buttons up the front, but the neckline and sleeves are similar. Unfortunately the top is very short, so the skirt I wanted to wear with it didn't work, but the gypsy aspect led me to a short wrap skirt that's part of a playsuit set that a friend bought for me on a cruise when we were in high school.
I was too late for natural light again, so again I have slightly grainy photos.
I know it's the middle of January ,but I wasn't going to need to leave the house today, so I paid no heed to the weather conditions.
I went barefoot today because I was in the house and it fit with the whole "gypsy" vibe.You can also see Roxie made a cameo appearance.
Now for the hair. My hair always looks better in person, but here are a few pictures to give you any idea.
To do my hair this way, I started with curls. I just slept on yesterdays hair because my hair is naturally curly, so the curl holds overnight.I took out my "bangs" and back-combed large sections of hair until there was a ton of volume. A lot of people use lots of products in their beehives, but I only used a small spritz of hairspray at the end, so mine isn't quite as voluminous as others. Then I smoothed the top hair slightly with a comb and pinned it into place while pushing up, so I didn't lose the volume. I much prefer this looser curly version to the sleek beehives.It's much more Brigitte Bardot-y. :)
As I was combing out my teased hair, I realized it was too good to pass up doing something to it...so I did. I did a Gibson girl style (a very loose interpretation of course) and took a few pictures. Hehehe, I kind of love it.
It's very Anne of Green Gables, don't you think? The red hair helps the image of course.
Also, I made a chocolate cake, a generous piece of which I am enjoying right now. Enjoy your evenings everyone!
