New Town, New Haircut...

Outfit Details:
Dress: Vintage, found in Warwick.
Cardigan: Cotton On, shortened by me.
Lipstick: Revlon Really Red.
Haircut: Garth.

Well, I wouldn’t say Garth was a master barber at any stretch of the imagination, but I don’t mind this new haircut. He followed the diagram pretty much to the letter, and I think it looks quite like the wartime standard cuts of the 40’s – above the collar, side part, etc. It’s just too short to put up now though, which means I’ll have to pincurl it every second night. I suppose that just means I’ll get much faster at it! Maybe I’m imagining it, but I think it sort of looks like these girls..?

We decided to go for a walk yesterday from our house to Chapel Street for a $4 pizza at the Lucky Coq (a bar.) It was a nice walk – it doesn’t get dark her until after 8pm, so there was plenty of time.

The route we took also has a good variety of Laundromats.

I can’t describe what I like about them so much. Maybe it’s the fact that wherever you are in the world, they all look the same? It’s strangely comforting. Or something.


  1. LOVE your hair...could work with 30s, 40, 50s looks and beyond!
