I was in high school, steadfastly procrastinating my Macbeth paper late one night, when I stumbled across a colorful blog. It was love at first sight! The blog possessed gorgeous, original color combinations, and an appreciation for Chinoiserie and Palm Beach. Each post contained daydream images, and a narrative that was elegant and optimistic. Are you enticed? The name of my first blog crush was Annechovie.
In college I had the illustrious reputation of always (questionably) rocking a greasy top knot. When I wasn’t a walking poster for the benefits of dry shampoo, I was sporting a baseball cap. Most days I did not even possess the shameful excuse of being hung-over, I was just lazy. Thankfully, I’m older now, wiser (debatable), and have discovered the versatile silk scarf. Fold it in half, tie the two ends at your nape, throw on some sunnies, and instant chic! No one ever has to know your dirty secret. Perhaps these timeless ladies were camouflaging greasy locks? I suppose we’ll never know.
