I decided to try out a ratty top knot hairstyle on a rainy afternoon. I like it. Its like a lazier version of a beehive. I tied a vintage leopard chiffon scarf around it and was good to go!
This is what I wore to.....THE GROCERY STORE! No joke. My life right now is full of boring domestic things as I settle in to my new apartment. Cooking and unpacking boxes and getting rid of things I don't need. January is always a slow month but at least I can dress like I'm having fun.
I honestly don't think my legs match the rest of me in these photos and I think my leopard print pony hair stilettos would be much better suited...
To create this hairstyle, flip your head upside-down and make a tight pony tail on the top. Then divide the ponytail into sections and tease each one until you have a giant rats nest on your head. then wrap the sections loosely around to form a hive shape and secure with a couple bobby pins. Fashionising.com called it a new look for 2011 but call it the perfect way to wear my hair when its too dirty and fried to do anything else to.
