New Fashion Statement?

This morning when I was trying to check my email, my hair was driving me crazy. When I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, I showed the hairdresser a picture of some long sweeping bangs that I wanted to try. She didn't take into account that my hair is curly/wavy--so what was supposed to be long bangs that swept across my face-- would curl, especially in the extreme humidity we're experiencing, and poke me right in the eye.

It's making me insane!

So this morning I grabbed one of Pickle's hair bows that was laying around and got the stupid bangs out of my eyes so I could see my computer screen.

Then I forgot I was wearing it.

I went to school at lunchtime to get Gooser. Had conversation with teacher. Chit-chatted with a few moms.

Went grocery shopping.

Went to Starbucks.

All looking like this:

It wasn't until the older kids got home and said "What's in your hair?" that I realized.

I immediately thought of that movie Whatever Happened to Baby Jane where Bette Davis plays the psycho former child star and dresses up to recreate her glory days:

I need to look in the mirror more!

Ahhhh ha ha ha ha! That's funny. I wonder how many moms are putting bows in their hair today to keep up with the new fashion. :)

Tami said...

LMAO!!! That is too funny Jen!!!

Belle said...

Baby JANE...LOL. Could be you've started a trend...see if anybody is wearing a bow when you go back to Starbucks and let us know.

Thats the stuff sit-coms are made of! Way too funny! But its not like you were in your house coat or pj's.

Great post!

Oh, you look cute! I also got the sideswept bangs but with my super straight hair they go straight into my eyes. Tres annoying. I'm constantly wearing a little barrette that is too girly for a 34 year old woman but at least it gets them out of my eyes.

Kori said...

Stunning; absolutely stunning.

My hair is very curly and wavy too.
I decided to let it grow longer and also one length and no bangs because they always flip up. I also want to hide the neck scar.

You look cute!
