In sticking with the 30s theme I wore my Hell Bunny Florrie dress which I know some of you have already seen enough of here and there as it is a dress I wear often! Each time Hell Bunny release an album of their new looks I scour it eagerly hoping that there will be more 1930s inspired pieces and I hope that in the future there will be some more. As you can also see from these photos -I’ve bobbed my hair! I have been enjoying experimenting curling my hair using different methods lately and I’ve found that I actually prefer a curling iron to setting pincurls the night before. At the moment I am working on figuring out how to create a decent looking 30s wave. This set was done using my regular method of pincurling the night before and I found that on short hair the curls are far too poofy and bouncy – although to be fair the second I stepped out of the door I was hit with multiple gusts of wind, and as a result spent the entire bus ride into the city pressing my hands against my hair to flatten things out a bit…
Today was a good mail day – new shoes, and Lime Crime’s Velvetine in Wicked arrived, which called for an impromptu outing so that I could finally have the chance to wear it. I don’t believe in wasting fancy makeup on just sitting at home, so it was absolutely necessary to plan an outing for its debut. This resulted in visiting the historic Shingle Inn tea rooms in Brisbane City Hall, a rather grand little cafe furnished with all of the original furniture as it had been in the 1930s when the tea rooms were in a different location in the city. These tea rooms were popular with soldiers during World War II and are a Brisbane institution that was recently featured in an episode of Tony Robinson’s Time Walks. Although the tearooms are now located in a different location from the original, everything was restored to look as it had in the thirties and forties, creating an atmosphere as if one truly had stepped back in time, with even the staff wearing period authentic costumes. I had a pot of tea to myself and a slice of lemon meringue pie, all of which was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be back for more!
