messy ballerina bun

Photo 501

I had a coworker named Mariella–and she was the arbiter of all things chic. If I was debating a purchase, the ultimate decision would always be up to her, no questions asked. If something was too revealing, she would recommend putting a turtleneck under it. And if an outfit was too blagh, she would suggest a bold lip and a messy ballerina bun.

To me, a ballerina bun always seemed too out-there… it begged to be noticed, and drew a lot of attention to one’s face. Mar would beggg me to don one at work, but I was always too bashful. However, since one of my New Years resolutions is to be “chic” not trendy (read: trashy) I decided that maybe I should call upon Mar’s advice and just rock it. Maybe it’s just the new me talking, but it kind of feels like the right kind of bold…
