Bernice Bobs Her Hair, or The Story of How Land Girl Went Loco for Coco (Chanel, that is)

Well, darlings, the weekend is again upon us. For the Canadians, it is a long weekend, due to Thanksgiving. However, we won't be hosting anyone at the home-front or having a huge family dinner, so I think Mr. HF and I are going to head to the city to go see Coco Avant Chanel. Since I had promised pics of the new hairdo, which I'm still figuring out how to style, I thought I'd post these pics of an outfit that I might wear to the show. The pieces are not technically vintage; I was trying to go for something loosely inspired by photos of Coco Chanel in the 20s and 30s. Regarding the hair-cut, the style didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but I like how much lighter and fresher it feels. My hair is so thick and frizzy that I am glad to have some of that bulk and weight cut away. I feel so energized I could just Charleston right now!!!! Okay, I'm rambling. I'm away from the blog this weekend, so "see" you Tuesday. Remember to check out the blog give-away if you haven't already!!! xoxo. Oh, P.S., just in case you're wondering, "what's with the weird post title and who the heck is Bernice?" click here:

I knew right away which Bernice you meant! Did you know that there was a short film made of it years ago starring Shelley Duvall? It's lovely.
