1950s Style Gingham, Plus My Eyebrow Style

50s style: gingham & swing skirt
50s style: gingham & swing skirt
50s style: gingham & bow necktie
50s style: gingham & swing skirt
These particular eyebrows caused a bit of a kerfuffle when I posted a selfie on my Instagram feed a few days ago (which was the day these photos were taken)... to read the conversation and find out what on earth I'm going on about click here. It did give me a laugh that day...!

My eyebrows actually receive quite a lot of comments on the blog, Instagram, Twitter, etc. - usually complimentary and that's really nice of people! However they have been getting a bit big for their, er, boots and would you believe it, they've only gone and opened up their own Twitter account* (I keep forgetting - just the one is tweeting. You can follow him/her on Twitter @notlambseyebrow - whatever next ?! ;)

The initial Instagram conversation (starting "Dude, change your eyebrow style...") absolutely cracks me up every time I read it - I've finally reached the point in this blogging lark where I can safely say that I can handle the unwanted comments: either kill 'em with kindness... or just mess with their minds. Currently I'm in favour of the latter - naughty, I know, but so much fun!

I'm still hankering after votes please as I'm a finalist in the Bath in Fashion blogger awards, which is a major regional UK blogger award! Please vote for me by clicking here...

  4. I can't look at myself in the mirror without considering how to 'rearrange' my brows - my husband thinks I have finally lost it! #stilllaughing

  5. I love this. I actually posted a blue and green look with full skirt myself 2 days ago. It's such a great colour combo.

  6. The fit and colour of this skirt are amazing, perfect for you!

    Ohh and not to forget the styling of your eyebrows ;-) Maybe you should let us all know where we can buy them?? *g*

  7. Cute outfit, those shoes are adorable! I don't like to wear high heels (I'm just not comfortable in them) but I love how they look on other people!
    Have a great Friday (yay!)

  18. I too was struck by how nice your straightened hair looks! But, I like it curled and in a bun...and with Green Eggs and Ham. :o)

    So happy you shared the eyebrow conversation for those of us not on Twitter! Funny thing, I've looked in the mirror in the morning and thought, "I need to groom my eyebrows more, like Not Dressed As Lamb." Of course now I'm just gonna picture them as a mustache! :o)

  19. You look so gorgeous - I love the colours you have teamed together in this outfit. It all goes together so perfectly.
    Your eyebrows definitely deserve their time in the spotlight in their own right. Good for you for letting them take centre stage!

    Yours Sincerely, New Follower and Eyebrow Envier

  20. LOL! As we say in the US, "haters gonna hate". Your detractors are just showing how lowbrow they are (pun irresistible and intended).
    Yours is the second blue gingham shirt I've seen today and I love it paired with the green skirt. It all screams Spring in the best possible sense!

  21. I love this look. I cannot believe that someone seriously make a Twitter account for your eyebrow, sounds like someone is seriously jealous. Also it sounds like someone needs to get a life!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ahem. I LOVE your eyebrows. As a hairstylist and facialist, I see hordes of over-tweezed women come through our salon. It's a crime against humanity! But seriously - I love your full brow. They set off your features beautifully. I just discovered your blog via IFB, and I am loving it! I'm a non-traditional fashion blogger as well. I'm almost 39, and I love clothes. Among other things! (Where do all these young girls get their money for clothes, anyway??) That's just the jealousy talking, I'm sure. You have great style, and you're such a creative dresser. Cheers!

  37. You look fabulous. Love the tights. Are they the squares of fishnets the right way up? And you have funny eyebrows. By that I mean that they have great senses of humour. Well one of them anyway.

  41. Happy to vote for you again, all of you ... your right-facing twin above (or are you the other one?) and both your brows. You all look like a spring flower ... so pretty.

    BTW ... I have a pair of multi-color pumps that remind me of your "yarn-wool-heels", 'cept these are a polished cotton print. Stop by please, if you have a chance, to see them.
