The Britannias

Tonight is the Britannia Awards, a big award show put on by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles that honors excellence in television and film.  You may remember we went last year and I was all stressed out about what to wear.
This year, I was able to prepare a bit better and I found a stunning vintage 1950’s dress at a shop in west LA called Polkadots and Moonbeams.  The dress has seen a lot of wear, clearly somebody loved it very much.  So I had to replace all the bows and cover up some of the exposed seams, but I think it turned out just great.  I’ll be sure to post pictures of me actually in it next week.  

Now my concern is what the heck to do with my hair!  I know I want to do some kind of updo, but I’d like it to be a tad fancier than my usual signature bun.  Here are some images from the web and blogs that are inspiring me at the moment.

I thought I might share my hair-do for the evening.  I did it this morning as I won’t have much time to get ready after work.  Let me know what you think!

Sorry for the crumminess of the photo!  But you get the idea, right?
