No Bra With That Blouse It's So Necessary, No Panties And Jeans It's So Necessary, Now Why You Frontin' On Me Is That Necessary??...

'Ello, 'ello, 'ello!!! 
Today i'm going to tell you a hairytale about my braids... 

Once upon a time this week- I started trying to find new ways to style my braids... As much as I like them hanging down on their own, my appetite for change got me thinking about buns... Thought  a nice twisted bun would look good and I set about twisting, tying and frantically clipping... But alas no, it wasn't meant to be!!... My braids are just too long and thick. With each attempt I just looked a little more like I was growing a tumour on my head. So I changed tact, still in keeping with the updo theme and i'm quite happy with the results... 

My day 1 attempt was a little sloppy (pic below)- I sorta just wanted all my hair to stay secure on the top of my head... 

But day 2 I managed a nice structured twisted look, feels quite '80s, looks sorta like a hair hat, isn't heavy, takes about 3 minutes to do, doesn't pull and all it requires is a hairband and a few bobby pins to stay quite secure all day- long as you don't start dancin' to Whip My Hair!!...

And because this was a rather grumpy-faced tale, even for me...

  • Lace bodysuit- Ebay
  • Leather shorts- Topshop

  • Lace top- Forever 21
  • PVC skirt- Ebay
  • Levi's denim jacket- Found it upstairs
  • Tights- Primarni
  • Boots- Borrowed, Topshop
  • Hairband- Primarni
  • Earring- Borrowed, thrifted

  • Lips- Illamasque in Blaze
  • Cheeks- Illamasque blusher
  • Eyes- Maybelline gel eyeliner

... And everyone lived happily ever after- The End.

So what d'you make of my twisted do??... Is it a do or a don't??? lololol, i'm hilarious I know.

Toodles to you bitches xx
