Mad Hair Day


By the time you read this we should be on the road, taking Gilbert for his first trip of the year, and I'm already feeling the festival vibe.


It's never too soon to start planning a few outfits.


This charity shop wig'll be perfect for covering up manky five-day-old festival hair,


and this hooded psychedelic maxi will stop me getting lost in the crowd.

An armful of brass bling (bottom two bangles courtesy of the fabulous Sandy, yellow cocktail ring from the gorgeous Sarah Misfit)
Happy Sunday!

1960s Psychedelic hooded maxi (eBay, £10), Wig (99p, British Heart Foundation)
Hope your weekend's been good as ours.
If I don't post again this week send out a search party in the direction of Wales.

  24. Loooove that hooded maxi dress you're wearing, and that wig looks fabulously good on you.

  25. i don't think you'll have any problem staying lost. getting lost maybe, but not staying lost. between the wig and that fabulous print you are going to stand out in the crowd vix. i love prints like this that really speak to the era of the garment. i had so many playclothes as a little girl in fabrics such as this. have a wonderful time and don't fall asleep during performances!

  30. love your maxi! is it cotton? if it is, i'm super jealous. i love the 60's but can't wear poly, so i'm always on the look out for crazy cotton prints. have fun at the festival!!

  32. I love the wig, I'm all about wigs and I've recently bought one too, just waiting a chance to wear it out. I've no idea how to look after it though to stop it becoming a bag of knots. That brass bangle on the top of your right arm... I have one exactly the same :-) xx

  35. HA!! I LOOOVE that wig!! It's not just the colour of the wig but the fact that you are actually WEARING it that makes me love this look - your expression is joyful. I don't wear wigs often, but what a thrill I get from them. When I was in platinum phase I got a shade close to this from a colourist - I almost kept it. Your dress is perfect! Have fun.

  44. You're such a shrinking violet, psychedelic dress and turquoise wig? Only for shy, retiring types.
    Only you could pull it off. Can't wait for the festival season, just to see what you put together this year.
