Valentine's Date Night Look! (Updo Inspired by BerlinHairBaby's Youtube Tutorial)
Yesterday was Valentine's Day and even though I did not want anything, the husband (ie Big Daddy), took me out to dinner at Ruth's Chris. It was packed! The food was too good and we ate too much but it was worth it! (I love their seafood and Big Daddy loves the steak!)
In preparation of our date, I wanted to do a different look this time. I usually do victory rolls or maybe a "hair down" look (now that it is growing out nicely) but last night I decided to do an updo I saw in a tutorial by BerlinHairBaby on Youtube.
I have watched several of her video tutorials and they are awesome! I love her thorough and in-depth instructions and she is a doll!!
To match my look, I wore a light aqua satin brocade bolero jacket my auntie bought in the UK for me, a black Stop Staring wiggle dress, 50s vintage black velvet stilettos, and a 50s-era Lisner parure set. The set is made with silvertone metal, blue rhinestones, and a aqua-colored lucite or plastic.
Here is the overall look:
I wish the "head to toe" picture came out but for some reason, my camera phone was making the images too dark! I looked like I was in dimly lit cave instead of my sitting room!
Nevertheless, here is the same style dress I wore:
This is the third time I have done this Betty Draper-inspired updo and each time, it becomes easier and easier to create! I am looking forward to trying more styles!
So, how was your Valentine's?
