muting the February sunshine

tags: ,

first day out in my new Holly Golightly glasses. I stepped out of the house as my neighbour left hers she called out – what long hair you have!

Less than an hour later,  a work colleague asked ‘Have you had your hair cut?’

In the evening at the Moscow city ballet performance of the Nutcracker, no-one said anything. What is a style consious person supposed to think? Do these people

  • notice something different in the general head region and pick the most likely thing?
  • expect me to wear different and stylish glasses?
  • think sunglasses in the UK in February is so silly they are too embarressed to draw attention to the seemingly pretentious faux-pas?

or is it something that my paranoid self hasn’t yet dreampt of?

    No one has ever notice when my hair has been cut and styled for the last 3 years (unless I spell it out). I think that it is sometimes easier to know there is something different about the person without being able to put your finger on what it is. Sorry for not noticing myself at the ballet, I remember thinking how confident you looked, but I couldn’t work out what the difference was. Doh!

    Happy Frog and I – I think it’s brilliant that on a winter evening, in subdued light, you took the fact that I was wearing sunglasses in your stride! If that isn’t high quality of acceptance of who I am, I don’t know what is!

    Most women feel confident when chanelling Holly Golightly. I may be your first follower of fashion and dig out my sunglasses this afternoon.

    Ms Scarlet, if careful chanelling can work for Panama, it can work for me, thanks for the encouragement 🙂
