Retro Hair Styles
As always my advice to you is to be a UNICORN. Dress, act and do your hair the way you love to look. Walk with a straight back, smile and be kind to others. Do something very important for yourself everyday. It can reading, writing, working out,yoga, studying for school, focusing on your blog or business. When you rest your head at night you should feel good that you did that one thing. If you do the most important one thing on a daily basis it will blossom and so will you.
Thanks for reading!
My personal style is very ADD. Sometimes I wake up and feel like dressing like the prim and proper girls from the 50’s. Those are the days that I may have a little extra time in the morning. That look takes me a while. I need to set my hair in hot rollers. Do the scotch tape trick for cat eyes. I really don’t know how they did it back then on a daily basis. I stumbled onto this on tumblr and it seems this girl has the look down packed. It’s too cute! It also happens to be the look my friend Jeniretro has masterfully perfected. Seriously, if you’re in N.Y. check her out!
As for me, I swoon when I see a polyester jumpsuit, I get excited at the sight of a fringe jacket. I love the 70’s with their clogs and dresses that flow in the wind. I bought tickets to see Fleetwood Mac in October and I told my boyfriend I was going in a long skirt and a shawl (Stevie Nicks Style). He said “I don’t think people are going to show up that way, you’re going to look like you’re in costume.” Well, I really don’t care, I’m going to twirl away in my shawl.
That brings me to Jemima Kirke who plays Jessa in HBO GIRLS. It seems her personal style closely resembles her characters style. As much as I love dressing from different eras, if you don’t do it right you may end up looking like an extra in a movie, the hell with it, dress however you want. Jemima Kirk looks like she found the perfect balance.

Your style is your own. Own it! Be authentic and be yourself. Don’t dress, act or do things because you think “What will other people think?” The world wants you, not an imitation of someone else. Whats your personal style?
