99 pink balloons...

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

I pretty much love all old cheesy music and when I was editing these photos I knew I had to name this post after the song 99 red balloons.. if you havent heard it, YouTube it now its guaranteed to put you in a good mood!





Im wearing my hair up in a messy knot in these photos..which I never do on my blog..
because im self conscious.. I dont like how I look in photos with my hair up. I find I use my hair as a shield that I can hide behind..if people notice it then they wont notice a spot I have or whatever other insecurity I have about my face..
But I decided to try and face my insecurity head on and take these photos with me hair up..





Cardigan & dress: Primark, Belt: Miss Selfridge, Brogues: Topshop, Garter Tights: c/o Tabio,
Necklace: Asos.

Thanks for all your comments about index pages below, I personally am not a fan either and now that I know that you guys find them annoying too they def wont be put into place on my blog :)

  6. Glad you won't be having annoying 'read more' links ;) They tend to put me off.

    You look gorgeous in these shots! (as always) I've started wearing my hair up more and more often recently and with my daily photos challenge I have to get used to photographing myself like it. It's not easy and sometimes not all that flattering so I see where you're coming from but I do think you look lush :) xx

  8. cute! You look amazing. I have a thing about putting my hair up in pictures too... I tend to think I look like a little boy for some reason. And these photos are definitely as whimsical as the song! =)

  11. Hast du etwas Zeit für mich, dann singe ich ein Lied für dich...
    Now I feel like listening to Nena, too! (And watch Gilmore Girls, since Lorelai listens to 99 red balloons as well)

    I love the dress you're wearing but (most importantly) I think putting up your hair works for you great! You should definitely do that more often. It suits you well :)

  17. You look so lovely! I love your hair up, but I'm the same, I don't really like wearing it up. That dress is amazing, as are the tights and cardigan, pretty much the whole outfit is awesome, I love it =D

  20. I would die for your bow tie belt and your cool necklace! I love them so much. I also love the print dress and your long cardigan! What I love about your long cardigan is that the buttons are placed lower than usual. So unique.

  32. I love these photos, the addition of the balloons is gorgeous.

    I really like your hair like this, you can see more of your lovely face but it's still framed perfectly by your fringe!

  39. This outfit is gorgeous! I particularly love all the little details and textures it contains. I used to have a thing about wearing my hair up for fear it made my face look chubby but am gradually getting past that and have recently been enjoying the fact my hair is now long enough to style properly! I think we all have those things we'd prefer to not put on our blogs, for me it's my glasses.Embrace the messy bun, it's a bad hair day saviour!

  40. This outfit is the cutest I've ever seen and don't be afraid to wear your hair up because you look really pretty. I always wear my hair up but that's mainly because my messy red hair is now extremely long and I need to go to the hairdressers, but you do look very pretty in these photos and 99 Red Balloons - great song! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love seeing the photos that inspired your sketches, and these one's are just as beautiful as the drawing itself!

    I'm exactly the same as you with my hair- HATE having it tied up, both because of sticky out ears and the fact that i feel so naked without it hanging there. You however look lovely with it up - yay for being brave :)
