This dress was a £10 bargain buy I picked up in one of those little independent shops selling garments produced by "brands" no one anywhere has ever heard of - always satisfying to find a gem amongst the ubiquitous wonky hems and loose threads!

And this is the "just stepped out of the salon" straightened version. I quite like it, but still think I prefer a bit more natural movement day to day... I know super straight hair keeps coming back "in", but it always amuses me that the standard high street salon look hasn't strayed from flat-ironed (preferably accompanied by an off-centre parting and side sweeping fringe) for over a decade - this look always takes me back to the mid-noughties, when I arrived at uni and panic-purchased my first pair of GHDs on being stunned by the mirror-like qualities of everyone else's hair! I rebelled in my second year, becoming hooked on tongs instead, before finally settling on (nearly) natural waves (partly due to an inability to master the perfect blow-dry, partly to minimise heat damage, but mainly because it just felt like "me"). Nice to have a change occasionally though... Plus, I have found that a wavy blow-dry is even more painful than the usual yanking I experience at the hands of the torturers, er, stylists, who always seem confounded by the sheer volume of hair I present them with - if I went every 6 weeks I don't think I'd have any strands left!
