A FINAL TOUCH



Been trying to bring on the warmth -I listen to Hawaiian guitars and we went out for (a lot of) tiki cocktails, but it didn't help - it's just getting colder and colder here! (But it was a good excuse to have lots of tropical drinks.)

Dress - 1950's vintage from Love Miss Daisy

Cold or not, you look stunning! Love the dress and how you have your hair styled. :)

Thank you ladies :) And gentlemen!

FIona : kiitos, nyt olen kyllä ite totutellu siihen. Ja peraakin pukee, kun on oma :D

Vicen : thank you, again!

Seinäruusunen : :D

Kitsch Kitten : oh, this dress is made of very stiff cotton, I wear it with hot pants and tight stockings + wool knee highs and a under skirt beneath, it works well and does not look too bad!

Tasha : I did rag curls! But I didn't brush them out well enough before washing my hair today - I spent nearly an hour detangling it. Ouch!

Mrs Munster said...

The dress is ever so pretty. Reminds me of Finnish summer in the coutryside (the whole Ansa-Tauno era). I'm heading to Northern Finland in few weeks and I don't know how I'm going to cope with the cold! We've got such a mild weather here that I'm in for a shock.

Dying to know how you went from rag curls to the beautiful symmetry of the layers at the front-perfecto whilst still being sexy, you should SO do a video on this one

Var det den nya klänningen? perf!

Daisy said...

The second photo is lovely.. and that dress is perfect !

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

THank you thank you.

Anonymous : I did wet set of rag curls; about 10 or 12 curls. I pincurled my bangs.

Ina : jepp, den nya!

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Vixenoffoxgreen: I did one on each side and worked my way inwards; that way the layers stay even. But it does get a little frizzy on me in the back, the front is better. so it's not tutorial material yet :)

Maja said...

which way did you do/or turn your ragcurls and the pincurls? it so beautiful;)

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Maja : I roll the pincurls in front against the forehead, a little tilted to the side. You've seen it a lot here on the blog, especially how I had my hair last spring! But A little bit more like a rolled bang perhaps. Then I "turn" the curl once it's open. I rolled the rag curls slightly towards the ear on each side, tied the rag underneath the curl. THe roll is pretty much turned inwards the head. I think that's the most natural way to do it, so I think you get it, although I right now feel it's hard to explain :D

Maja said...

sounds good though;) thank you, I must try that;)
