When love walks in the room-everybody stand up!


I seem to be having a hair down phase.
I'll snap out of it shortly!
I don't wear it down much as it annoys the shit out of me!
It's itchy, gets in my face, my food, my underwear......
I love having it long so I can do big bouffants, though, and I wouldn't dream of cutting it.


G doesn't mind his flying about, he even sleeps happily with his hair all over his face...ugh, that just creeps me out.
Both of us having long hair means a frequently clogged shower!
Not to mention the mystery hairs in lunches and so on. I often pull long, long hairs of of my knickers, and I know whose they are by the colour and the strength!
Joy!

Helga, you are looking more divine than ever - look at your gorgeous hair!!! SO much to love with this outfit - the tights match the vanity, which did you get first? I really like how the green and the blue of your jacket adds to the colours of the dress. xxx

Sue said...

You look so gorgeous, love the green, love your frock, and sure, I will take your snog and add in a hug!!

Ivy Black said...

Ooooh a naughty snog at work at8.30 at my desk! I have to pinch yer bum as well.
You look beautiful and those colours are divine. The vanity case is a stunner. I might have to pinch that too.
Have a glorious weekend.
xxxxxxxx

Ooh yeah, snoggeroony! I like Em's idea of pinching your bum too. Well, in for a penny, in for a pound. Love that amazing frock on you. That long front panel plus the gathered sides is great and that neck detailing is wonderful. You wear a 50s frock like nobody else. Now, I'd noticed the long hair wearing as A Thing, but I was deliberately not saying anything in case it broke the spell. We have hairs everywhere, it's horrible, but the alternative is worse. A Q cooked tea isn't complete without one of his hairs in it, it's become a standing joke. Xxxxxxxxxxxx

Fiona said...

Oh alright, no tongues tho! Yeah the hair thing is a pain in the arse but the cat hair is worse. Found one in my Thai stir fry the other day, how very dare she? Hoping the new Hoover will sort it.
Gorgeous tights and matching vanity case and delightful neckline on your frock.

Gawd that dress is delicious!

When Himself had long hair it was like living with an afghan hound that was constantly moulting!You'd see something on the carpet, pick it up and it would just keep going and turn into this huge ball of hair.Mental.

I am with you on the long hair thing. I often floss my downstairs with it. Annoying as f*ck if it breaks mid pull out though.

I have a plughole strainer thing in our bath - works a treat to catch all those hairs :)

Beth Waltz said...

The deliciousness is definitely in the details -- those pretty buttons!

My waist-length hair period coincided with time served as a volunteer conservationist in a small/impoverished museum. So. We used my hair to repair deteriorated fabric, e.g., the underside of a saddle and the edging band of a skunk-skin turban. My DNA should give curators fits someday...

Connie said...

Give me a head with hair. Long beautiful hair. Do not cut it. I cut mine years ago for the same reasons you mentioned. It always had sun screen or remnants of a snack in it so I snipped it off and it's been short ever since. You can't go back! Yours is gorgeous. As are you. Green legs and shiny Mary Janes. My inspiration for the day.

seƱora Allnut said...

glad your long hair is going to stay on your stylish head!!, I really can't stand my own hair but love your red long hair, love its PreRaphaelite vibe!
And such a fabulous color combo, love that citron shade and your denim coat, and your dress is so cute!!
besos

Mariela Santillan said...

Gorgeous! I have the same issue. If my hair is curled and made up Ican wear it down. If not, then in a ponytail or braids it goes.

Krista Gassib said...

We are a hairy household too:) I do love your hair down all wild, because it's so you, wild child! I have mine down for all the same reasons. This dress is so dam feminine and soft and gorgeous and yes the collar is quite sweet! But I am totally digging this jacket!!!!
I'll raise your SNOG with a full on SMOOTCH!
XXXOOOXOLove you!

Goody said...

I'd give you a snog but the wind just blew my hair onto my freshly painted lips. I hate that.

Your fiery hair looks superb with the blue and green combo of the outfit. It seems redder when you wear it down, but maybe that's just because it is more striking.

thorne garnet said...

Can't wait till winter, I'll be able to let my hair down most days. It's to dang hot and sticky here in the summer.

Lovely dress.

ArgentGal said...

SQUACK! (That's a kiss sound in my family for some reason.) I love your long red hair up or down. I can relate to the hair issues. Hubby, son, and I all have long hair; it's everywhere. I'm wild over the green case and green tights! Definitely my eye candy for the night.

Jazzy Jack said...

Lime green and grey are a great combination...who knew? Well obviously you did! I must be behind the eight ball on this. Thanks for enlightening me:-) lovely details and soft colours on the dress, and the crystal jewels with the long hair. So soft and wafty! Do you feel like doing a waft or two? Many kisses!! Xxxxxxxxxxxx JJ

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

an old roommate of mine had super long dyed black hair AND she shed like a dog. Her loose hairs annoyed the fire out of me as they got everywhere. Years after going our separate ways I found a a single strand of her hair woven into the fabric of a pair of my panties. That's my story.

Curtise said...

Since you asked so nicely, and look so divine, I'll give you a snog, darling! Isn't that dress a beauty? Fits you to absolute perfection. I've had a blue and green theme going on this week, I do love that combination.
I adore seeing your hair down, all PreRaph maiden-ish and gorgeous. But yes, I can imagine that between you and G, there are stray hairs all over the place! Worth it for the glamour though! xxxxx

Oranges and Apples said...

You look great! I love that shade of green on your tights and bag!

Forest City Fashionista said...

I'm in for a smooch and a squeeze!
I love seeing your titian tresses set free, but I get the part about the shedding everywhere. I don't have much to shed, but I am still finding little hairs from my departed Fred everywhere....

Another eye-candy outfit - limey green and sky blue are so pretty together. Oh, and with regard to your comment on my post about the girl band, you would be the most amazing mentor for them!!

Catherine said...

Olive and green! Your colour matching abilities never cease to amaze me. Your still a babe even with your hair down. I am a fan of wearing it down and hardly wear it up except in a twisted knot when I go to bed so it's all wavy and has texture when I wake up

I love your long glorious hair!! I kind of wish I had long hair, but I'm incredibly lazy and I don't think I could be bothered. Plus my hair ALREADY clogs the drains. That dress is just beautiful on you lady.
