Dressember Day 27: Ol’ Curly

(Dress, ASOS (obviously); shoes, Christian Louboutin)

I actually wasn’t going to bother posting these photos because as well as the Christmas season stealing all my readers, the horrible light inside the house at this time of year means that this dress doesn’t look anything like it does in real life in this photo. Or at least I hope it doesn’t. (And no, that’s not my bra, by the way: I can’t wear v-necks without some kind of top underneath or I spend the night flashing people, which totally wasn’t the kind of party our friends had invited us to last night…) Still, I promised I’d see Dressember through to the end, so let the record show that this is what I wore to a party at our friends’ house last night. Because the dress is very simple, I decided to do my hair in such a way that I’d look like Little Orphan Annie for the duration of the evening:

(Oh, hai blurry iPhone self-portrait!)

My hair started off so big I had to turn sideways in order to get through doors, but as is its way, by the time we got to the party, our friends, who had been following my hair drama on Twitter, were all, “Um, where are the curls?” And by the time we went home? It was almost straight again. Ah well…

This hairstyle was actually a dry-run for the top-secret, would-tell-you-but-I’d-have-to-kill-you event we’re attending tonight. I’ll be pushed for time, but I’m sure I’ll manage at least one blurry photo of me looking faintly startled…
