Daily Outfit

15 Dec 10
Yes, I really did get this cardigan at a thrift store and I haven't altered it in anyway, it just came like this. Sometimes I think I have too many cardigans, but how could I pass up this ribbon detailing? Besides, cardigans are so versatile and warm, it makes up for the creepy comments I get on Flickr (you've got them too, I know you have).
I also love this vintage brooch I found. It isn't a pipe either. That's a bit of humour for you fans of Surrealism out there. I've decided to start seriously collecting novelty shaped brooches as they're funner than normal brooches. Funner is a word, you stupid red line.
Detail -15 Dec 10

In other news, I've decided to start growing out my bangs. I just haven't been able to get used to them and I miss being able to do the faux victory rolls that I used to do. I also got this wonderful book for my birthday last week and I now really want to start setting my hair again and possibly see if I can find a place that does Rita Hayworth perms. I actually used to set my hair every morning in high school, but I stopped when I started going to college and university because I didn't have enough time. But I do now. I hate growing out bangs, it's so dashed awkward.
What do you think? Should I grow out my bangs or keep them?

At the moment it's cold and raining outside my window, which made me think of this song from Merry Andrew with Danny Kaye.

I love novelty brooches - that one is a corker. I say grow out your bangs if you aren't happy with them.

That brooch is perfection. Or perhaps it's not. Oh Surrealism, how you make us think.

And Danny Kaye has just made my day!
