Holiday Outfits: Cyprus

Today I thought I'd share a few outfit snaps from my recent holiday to Cyprus. A whole gang of us went to celebrate our friends getting married. The wedding itself was beautiful and we all had such a lovely day.

Shorts Shorts

I'm a big fan of Iggy Pop's radio show on 6 music and a few weeks ago he had a show themed around Fashion where he played Shorts Shorts by The Royal Teens. I was recently in Cyprus and everytime I wore my handmade denim shorts that song came into my head.

I used McCalls' 5263 (a 1950s pattern) to make the shorts, the same pattern that I used to make my red slacks and I picked up the denim chambray from a fabric shop in Walthamstow.

They are so comfy to wear and looked great down by the pool in my bikini. I find a high waist super flattering too.

Hairstyles of the 1960s: The Bob

I love a good bob and there were some excellent examples of bobbed hair in the 1960s. Some of my favourite 60s models, actresses and singers all sported the style. The bob has been around since the beginning of the 20th Century and many women have turned to the hairstyle when looking for a dramatic change in appearance or to signify a change in themselves.
