What Would Audrey Do?
Well, I’m still in the middle of my wardrobe crisis, as you can probably tell by the ever-present black trousers, which are basically all I ever wear right now. Not the same pair, obviously. No, I have about… let’s not even THINK about how many pairs of black trousers I have, hmmm? I don’t know about you, though, but any time I find myself stuck for something to wear, I ask myself, “What would Audrey [Hepburn] do?” (WWAD? ™) And I think we all know that Audrey would wear cropped black pants with a bardot-style sweater, so here I am, in my very favourite cropped black pants, and a bardot-style sweater, which I swear to God I DID iron before leaving the house, but which apparently creased like tissue paper in the car, and I didn’t realise until I looked back at the photos. Whoops. I bet that never happened to Audrey, did it?
This outfit also marked the first public outing of that clip-on fringe I told you about a few weeks ago, and then promptly stuffed into a drawer, because I was too scared to wear it in public in case it blew off or something. I decided to brave it on Saturday, and although I really liked the look of it, no matter how many times Terry told me that no, no one could tell it wasn’t real, STOP ASKING, I was SO self-conscious about it I was convinced that even people in passing cars were staring at me, going, “HAHA, WOMAN IN A WIG! WOMAN IN A WIG!” Because, yes, I am THAT important. Ahem.
Anyway, I’ve yet to work out a way of attaching the fringe without the top of it showing, hence the hairband, which covers up the join. The headband, however, gave me a bad case of Headband Headache after a few hours of wear, so I had to remove both it and the fringe, much to the amusement of my dad, who we were visiting at time. “Oh, I see you’ve taken your hair off,” he commented. “That’s nice.” I bet THAT never happened to Audrey either.
(And yes, you’re right, she would totally have worn flats rather than heels. I wouldn’t, though, and it’s my blog, so, you know, who cares what Audrey would do, anyway?)
