Happy January, ladies! I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!
First things first. Over the break, I redesign my website to make it easier to read. I’d love to hear your thoughts about the new look. Love it? Hate it? Like the old one better?
For my first post of the new year, I would like to share my hair inspiration. I have had at least long-ish hair since I was 5 years old because my mom and dad liked my hair long. As a Christian, I believe that it is Biblical for a woman to have long hair, but growing up, I never thought much about it. Long hair was just something we did, not necessarily pretty. Then I saw “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.”
This lovely musical isn’t true to the book or historically accurate, but I love it any way. If you aren’t familiar with the story, it is about a man from the early 1900s named Hank Martin (Bing Crosby) who is transported back to the glorious reign of King Arthur(Cedric Hardwicke). During Hank’s visit, he falls in love with the king’s niece, Lady Alisande La Carteloise (Rhonda Fleming), a pretty redhead. In this scene, she sings “When Is Sometime?” for King Arthur and the stranger from the far-off land beyond the Great Sea.
For those of you who love costumes, here is the front of her gown. This reminds me of a couple different Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
What about you? Do you have a long hair inspiration, real or fictional?
