Not quite Polka Dots

The Hairstyle Experiment



You can see it starting here


Ahaha, I have always loved elaborate hairclips and especially flower ones. And I bought them because I found them so fancy. But then I never wore them. Until today...

Midway through the shoot, half of the hair fell out and I finished looking like I was sporting a serious front mullet. Or having the standard male hair loss pattern. Or both. I'll spare you. But more than that, I spare myself from the embarrassement. Next time, I'll glue them put.

The dress is not quite polka dotted because those dots are actually little squares.
----

Ahaha. Ho sempre adorato i accessori per i capelli, ma sopratutto quelli con i fiori. E li ho comprati perchè li trovavo carini. Ma poi non li ho mai messi. Fin ad oggi...

A un punto durante lo shooting, metà dei capelli davanti si sono staccati e sembravo di avere un mullet. O il trama standard dei uomini quando cominciano a perdere i capelli. O entrambi. Vi risparmio. Ma sopratutto risparmio me dal imbarazzo. La prossima volta metto ca colla.

Il vestito non è coperto dai pois "Polka", ma piccoli cubi.
----

Ahaha. Mir haben etwas auffaelligere Haarclips immer schon gut gefallen. Besonders die mit Blumen. Und ich habe sie mir gekauft, weil sie so schick waren. Aber dann habe ich sie nie benutzt. Bis heute ...

An einem Punkt, so halbwegs durch das Shooting, ist die Haelfte der Haare vorne aus dem Clip gerutscht und ich sah aus als haette ich ein schweres Front Mullet Problem. Oder Geheimratsecken. Oder beides. Ich erspare es Euch. Aber vor allem erspare ich mir die Peinlichkeit. Das naechste Mal werden sie festgeklebt.

Das Kleid ist "nicht wirklich" mit Polka Dots, weil das naemlich kleine quadratische Farbkleckse sind.


The not quite polka dotted dress















The red ankle booties are the ones I bought during my stay in Germany, which I posted about here. The clutch that really is a cross body or shoulder bag you've seen last here.
-
I stivaletti sono quelli che ho comprato in Germania, ne avevo parlato qui. La pochette che in realtà è una borsa a tracolla l'avete visto anche qui.
-
Die Stiefeletten hatte ich waehrend meines Urlaubs in Deutschland gekauft, hatte hier darueber berichtet. Und die Clutch die eigentlich eine Schultertasche ist habt Ihr das letzte Mal hier gesehen.

Ciao!


Do you have an item that you bought (maybe more then once) because you really like how it looks styled in general or on others, but then never put it on yourself? Or used it?
-

Avete qualche oggetto che avete comprato (anche più di una volta) perchè vi piace come viene indossato in generale o visto su altri, ma poi non l'ho avete mai messo? O usato?
-

Habt Ihr Euch einmal einen Gegenstand gekauft (auch mehr als einmal) weil er Euch total gut gestyled im Allegemeinen oder an anderen gefallen hat, aber den Ihr dann selbst nie angezogen oder benutzt habt?

  12. wow, the shoes!!! I have a few decorative hair clips too. Since I'm in my 50's I have a tendency to think they might be too young on me. But then I think, what the heck! I think just one is just great. Very pretty and flattering dress on you too.
