Rocking the Regency Look

Those of you who read this blog regularly (or who can just scroll down a few inches) will know that I have just read a rather wonderful book about the fashions of Marie Antionette, and it's really has been influencing my fashion decisions over the past couple of days. I've been feeling floral patterns, busoms, and lots and lots of hair. Behold my normal hair:

This is normal, not unattractive hair. Blonde, fringed, sensible straight hair. In fact, normally I rather like it. But since finishing the book things have gone crazy. Sensible hair isnt good enough: I wanted flamboyant elabourate crazy hair. Hair that would attract the attention of a French king perhaps. Behold my hair now:

With the help of willpower and a rather expensive bumble and bumble texturiser my hair is a giant frizzy mess. And although it looks neither sleek or sophisticated I rather love it. Time to throw away those straighteners and invest in some pretty hairslides I think. Maybe some of these:

Beaded daisy and feather slide. Accessorize. £15

Oval Stone clips. £5.00

For this week at least, big hair is my new black. Vive le revolution!!!!

Ah, Tor. You look like a little doll! I want to dress you up and brush your hair (in the least creepy way possible, of course)
