The results are in!

Unable to decide between much shorter, and maintaining, I went asymmetrical.


She and I discussed my Ginger Aspirations... we'll see. I so strongly feel like a "blonde" now that toying with my hair color isn't as appealing as it was as a teenager. But maybe I could be a strawberry blonde like my earliest fashion heroine, Nancy Drew... ?

Well, off to pack, folks! It's so much easier when you love what you're packing things into. This vintage suitcase is part of a matching pair and has a fluorescent pink/orange lining. I actually gasped when I saw the two together, out in the open yet neglected at a vintage shop and for only $40 for the set!


Travel really hit the apex of its chic in the Sixties, eh?


.

PS-- I'll be in Denver until September, doing secret (positive!) things at the Democratic National Convention. I'll try to find a computer to leave a couple of updates, but if not... I wish you all well and see you next week-ish!

It's quite the updated Twiggy look. Just throw on some crazy dramatic undereye mascara, and the transformation is complete!

1. Love the hair.

3. Have an unbearably good time doing the good work!
