My New Fall Look

While San Geraldo and I were in Seattle, we shopped (well, Judy and I shopped) at a store called Display & Costume. In addition to costumes and Halloween (seasonal) and party supplies, the store carries novelty items and other things not found in many places.

Last year, Judy bought a vinyl zipper purse adorned with retro art and the words, "Random Crap." She was looking for a new one or something similar. I spied the "beauty" department and opted for a make-over.

HAVING ALREADY SHOPPED FOR A NEW IPOD NANO THAT DAY, SAN GERALDO WAS SHOPPED OUT.

Obviously, San Geraldo was no help and Judy thought I wasn't being quite daring enough. So, here are my three new looks. Let me know which you think suits me best.

      I agree. I think I'm really onto something here (but I don't think it's ready for the public yet)!

      I remember this song but didn't remember the name of the group or singer. When I watched the video I crapped up. I'm of course so much better looking but we both do rock the hair. Limahl, however, continues to rock his OWN hair.

  3. I love #3. Very hip and versatile. Think of the braids with ribbons and beads!!! Gerald would rock #2!
    Did you buy?

      #3 is my favorite as well. As for Jerry, he could rock the look of #2 with his OWN hair! Some folks have all the luck!

  4. A big YES to number 3 it was almost a tie between that and number 1

      My preference is also #3 (with #1 in second place ... the ribbon is just not me).

  5. The first one is just DARLING!

      I was torn between 3 and 1 but preferred 3 because I thought the ribbon in 1 was just too Junior League for my tastes. Next thing you know I'd be opting for read sweater sets and plaid skirts!

  6. Going with #3, but #1 would be OK. No, no, no to #2. But Elaine's suggestion that #2 would do for SG is spot on. What fun!

      I'm almost sorry I didn't buy #3 (but then again I'm sure I could find it here in town). If you saw the head of hair Jerry has, he could do look #2 without any help from a wig.

      I DID like that one, but I've never been big on those black Junior League ribbons!

  8. Definitely the last one - rockstar look and all :)

      I loved that last one. Guess what, I'm a rock star. I got my rock moves... (Pink!)

  9. Yes, I like the first one, too-- can't beat the bow :)
    And... Sheryyyyyl :) Love me some Sheryl Crow.

      I figured you'd like Sheryl Crow. I think she's amazing. As for your choice of #1 for the bow, that's the only reason I DE-selected it. That bow is just not my style.

  10. LOL! LOVE #3!! Very whimsical and carefree, I'd say!!

      Oh, to have a head of hair to do that with! Except I'd probably still shave my head!

  13. Well I love them all but look 2 is a huge winner, for me at least. Number 3 reminds me of an Australian footballer who was once very famous by the name of Warwick Capper. He was known for two things - his haircut, and his super tight football shorts. ;)

      Look #2 reminds my of some time in my past, but maybe it was a past life! Oh, Warwick Capper! I just looked him up. After that, I'm not so partial to my Look #3 anymore!

      That ribbon is just much too Junior League for me. But I did like all the hair (and that fringe).

  15. I'll be alone (so far) in going for the middle one, even if it does vaguely remind me of John Kerry - not that there's anything wrong with looking like J.K., I hasten to add.

      Leave it to you to go in a different direction. Speaking of which, maybe I'll just leave that wig to you!

  16. It's between 1 and 3. The shoulder length hair suits you. Eeerily, you look like a friend of mine in #2. Except for the beard. She's clean-shaven.

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      I couldn't believe what a good time I had doing that. My favorite was #3 but #1 was second. As for #2, it reminded me of too many people in my past (with and without beards).

      Delete
  17. #1 sans bow, or #3. I hope you brought one of them home.

    1. Travel:
      We are in agreement. I didn't bring one home, but I know a shop here that has the same looks in MY colors.

  18. I was struck by the second, but the third is the one. How fortunate you are to be able to make anything look good!

  19. I'm liking the last one. Do you think you can get the band back together???

    1. Bob:
      I didn't even know which specific band that would be, but Tynan directed me to Limahl of Kajagoogoo. I'll see what I can do (and also will see if Limahl would mind being replaced).

  20. That third photo makes you look hip and edgy, but approachable.

      That's ME! I've always been described as "hip and edgy, but approachable."

  21. I thought #2 looks a bit like Bill Clinton... but at least you didn't find a "do" that made you look like Trump!!!!!

      You're so right about the look of Style #2. If I had found anything that looked like Drumpf, I wouldn't even have tried it on.

  22. Definitely #3; kind of sexy, yes?

      I kind of like that rockstar look, but I don't think it would hold up to closer inspection ... or to more than a snapshot.
