head scarf

we’ve had a week of lovely blustery rainy cape winter weather and i’ve had to drag around umbrellas that i keep forgetting everywhere and wearing rainjackets with hoodies that don’t fit or stay on my head (i don’t even have an exceptionally large head!). toying with the idea of a head scarf…

m.i.a.

m.i.a. at last night’s met costume institute gala. if the word fierce didn’t suck so much now, it would apply here. go here to see the rest of my favourites (christina hendricks cuts a striking figure, as usual). oh, and alexa chung
