I'm not a fan of hair in buns but the looks in your photos are lovely.

Dance, dance, dance, Lenore. And then spin around and smile...I'm in the mood for moving to the musica too!

Love it. Although they are dancing me into a head rush.

David Toms said...

Oh the bun! Noooo! Always reminds me of my 6th Class teacher Miss Simes, who was around 50 and always wore her hair in a bun! She could also rap a ruler across the knuckles with sadistic pleasure!

I love braid buns- I just put layers in my hair and have not checked out where the wisps will fall in a braid yet.

'tis all about the ballerina these days. No hiding behind bangs, NO!

this free bird said...

I love sleek, slicked back buns - totally ballerina chic! Now if I had the skinny toned legs to go with the bun...

Wow! First of all I love your blog! So cool!
Also what are your pugs names? I also have a pug called Lulu, the greatest friend a girl could have! And I'm a huge fan of SARK!

I'm going to be following you like it's my business, virtually, don't worry! :)

Have a great week!

Great inspiration!

Tracey said...

Oh yes, I would love to wear this look each and every day. I'm thinking of making red lipstick part of my every day essentials ... it's such a classic and distinctive look.

I love that tattoo peaking out from one of the collars - lovely! :)

Sam said...

There's nothing like a big bun (*ahem*) for looking elegant. It is very unforgiving though - maybe that adds to it's mystique! Hope you're having a fab week! XOXO's

Susan said...

Loving the chic chignon style Lenore x

photojoy said...

I really admire women with hair so long they can put it up in a bun.

Kitty Stampede said...
