It's Day 4 of Kitty's challenge and our theme is "Floral", sadly the weather here in the UK is anything but summery, we've got torrential rain and thunder and we're confined inside for photographs today. Please excuse all the madness in the background.
Todays rules and tools;
1. 6 hairclips OR bobby pins OR small decorations
2. 2 large hair decorations
3. Brushes and combs, as required
My hair got a thorough drenching at this morning's car boot sale, I can't be bothered washing it and I'm off out with the girls later so I've incorporated a floral theme into both my outfit and the hair. I backcombed the front and pinned it back with hairgrips then I stitched the petals from a fake flower on to the waistband of an old pair of black opaque tights.
I bought the John Marks velvet poppy print maxi from Vintage Village at the Clothes Show (using birthday money, it was mega expensive for me), the vintage brass bangles and Lord Python pendant are vintage boot sale finds.
You can't see them but I snaffled a pair of black thigh boots at this morning's car boot sale, very rock chick and perfect for tonight's visit to the biker's pub. All I need is a spangly leotard and the local weirdo who thinks I'm Cher will be totally convinced.
Here's a few things I picked up this morning before the rain started - Vintage lampshade (£1), two large pieces of 1950's fabric (50p) and an Art Deco wall sconce by Dartmouth Pottery (25p). I really wanted a 1930's ottoman with a quilted lid and a Galleon carved into the side, the nice man said I could have it for £3 but Jon put his foot down.
Off to down some Strongbow and scare the locals.
