Yesterday I wore this gorgeous bright, bright teal I. Magnin silk dress thrifted recently. I spent seriously close to a half an hour steaming the dang thing in the morning, only to put it on, climb in my car, and promptly set wrinkles in it for the day. Le sigh.... Anyhoo, I had been planning on wearing it for a couple days (I do indeed have daydreams about outfits) and thought a sexy, curly hairdo would go nicely. However! I have relatively short hair and always seem to forget that when I use a lot of curlers on it - I get poodle hair!!!
I worked with it, and it turned out alright. Reminded me vaguely of a 20's style 'do, and each and every time I think of the roaring 20's... I think of the eighties! Again with the eighties, I know. Why? Because of the TV sitcom "Down to Earth". Does anyone remember this??? I so completely loved this show (even though it was horrible), and the theme song is stuck FOREVER in my noggin. It was about Ethel, this flapper from the 1920's that got squashed by a trolley, sent to heaven, and then sent back to earth to help this 1980's family out. Included a link, so that the song may be stuck forever in your noggin as well.
