A little red here, there and in my hair.

Last night I went to the opening night of Club Burlesk, a new monthly burlesque show presented by Peaches 'n' Gin Burlesque, and decided to wear my Trashy Diva Sweetie dress in the turquoise birds print. I've actually worn this a couple of times before (and I love it though it creases far too easily for my liking) but never taken photos for the blog! Whilst it's not the best dress to go out to sit down in (because of the creasing factor) I did think it was a good one for a burlesque show. It's such a great print and I adore the cut of this dress!

Oh and my hair is red now! I've been wanting to go red for so very long but I had been dyeing my hair black for a few years and I just couldn't stand the thought of bleaching my hair as much as I'd have to...so I just let it fade/grow out. (As well as a couple of bleach baths just to lighten it that little bit more before I dyed it red.) I'd be more than happy to go through the whole process if anyone wants me to but, to be honest, it was mainly just having patience. Not entirely though.

I clearly don't believe that redheads ought not wear red but I was still surprised at just how much I loved the red flower on my red hair! I'm pretty sure this is nearly the exact same shade of red that my hair was when I first ventured into the world of red hair in...2006.

Oh and I shan't be matching my eyebrows to my hair, either - I love having dark eyebrows too much.

And the show was absolutely amazing. If you are in Adelaide or planning a trip that coincides with one of the performance dates (you can see the dates on the facebook page) and you have $15 to spare then you definitely should go along. I suppose burlesque isn't to everyone's taste but I always have a great time and I love being able to support local talent as well.

Love,

  2. I love your hair! I get the urge to dye my hair so much sometimes it's hard to resist. i had contuinuously dyed hair between the ages 13 and 27, it was such hard work to grow the final highlights out, so i want to stay natural. But when i see things like yours, i am so tempted!

  14. The hair color suits you perfectly...and dare I say, makes you look younger??
    I had that exact dress and loved the print but sold it due to the crease factor. Way too annoying and I really do not iron anything uless its an emergency.

  22. Love your new hair colour! I bought the lie about red heads not suiting red clothes for way too long - it's now my one of my favourite colours! You look smashing and I think you worked it in combination with the colours in the dress really well.

    I also find darker eyebrows to be more natural looking - mine are brown, almost black and I get asked all the time if I dye my hair!
