I had no idea how easy barrel rolls were to achieve!
You can't really see the full result in this post, but watch out this week for some super kawaii hair!
I've been wondering how to do this for years.

I'm off today to check out a vintage/recycle clothing shop I've been invited to have a look at, naturally taking my camera with me so I can show case the results.

This dress is still on loan from the very stylish Sian Darling, she has agreed to a dress swap as I'm growing attached each and every day it's in my possesion. If any of you can think about what I could part with that would be equal in style/quality/design and general gorgeousness then let me know. I have an idea I'll be parting with one of my colourful dresses, can't bear to part with any of my black and white gear!

I'm also getting into wearing matching lip and nail colour, my inner middle aged woman showing.

Dress: Vintage, still on loan!
Jewellery: Mouche
Heels: eBay

The hair looks great, my sister does something similar. I wish I could do that with my hair but my hair is so fine it doesn't stay up ever. I love the dress on you too, I hope you can find something similar.

Great look! Love your hairstyle, which very few can pull off. You are one of them, since you have such a classy and ladylike look. Did you find those shoes on ebay? Are they allright to wear? Also, and I might have asked you before, how did you get your whole photo into the header? Which by the way , looks stunning. Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

Hello Lady Melbourne,

I found your blog via Circa Vintage. I just wondered if you'd disclose who does your hair--it's really great.

Also, that dress is Coo Ca Choo, it ain't vintage I'm afraid as I too own it.
