Rosette in my hair by Puppycatmeow on Etsy

So, I had to get dolled up for a few occasions and here are the pictures for proof. Usually, I sit around in a pair of stained PJ’s writing this classy blog. The first three photos were for my interviews for Twilight 3: Eclipse … I was trying to channel Nanny Fine from The Nanny with the Moschino belt from the 1990s. I put a rosette in my hair by Puppycatmeow on Etsy. The pink suit is actually a vintage store find from 20 years ago. I added some Chanel accessories to it to really give it that ‘uptown’ look which clashed with my ‘downtown’ hair. I like it when the ‘uptown’ and ‘downtown’ meet. I stole a picnic tablecloth and made that red gingham dress. Not really, I bought that ages ago! I pulled that rockabilly dress out for a recent trip to Mexico. Notice the mud flap girl necklace from Patricia Field’s. And lastly, I continued the gingham, but in lemon with this Nanette Lepore dress. I added the matching headscarf for a Eastern- European -country- girl -ready -to- go- apple-picking- in-her-vintage -bicycle. I think I nailed that look on the head. Ignore the Spongebob crocs in the back there….Voila!

So I had a nice package of goodies waiting for me again courtesy of hair extraordinaire, Tressa the Hairdressa! She has a store on Etsy called Puppycatmeow, in case you haven’t seen my older posts. This time she made HUMAN HAIR bangs for me and HUMAN HAIR color extensions. Human hair is pretty damn special, if you ask me. Some Indian woman sacrificed her hair during one of her breaks at her telemarketing job. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the hair on my head belonged to the same damn bill collector that calls me during dinner time? That sh*t should be a movie. Wait, it is! Anywho, the talented Tressa also fulfilled my wishes by making pom-poms or “hairballs” (as Tressa calls them and Mr. Marmar approves) for my head. There are 2 small ones and one big ball! I love love love them. My most favorite is, of course ,the bangs- I did victory curls to look like a manic Stepford Wife or Sally Jupiter in the first photo and then a Bettie Page do for a Rockabilly look (3rd photo). In the 6th photo is a ponytail/fall, that prompted my 5 year old son say, “you look like a princess”. He asked for candy straight after that. The clip-in human hair strands in a variety of wild colors are also available at Puppycatmeow. Above, I wear blue as an ode to Smurfette and white as an ode to…. an old lady, I guess? Check out Puppycatmeow for more amazing stuff!
