 As I'm sure you are aware, my presence in the blogsphere over the last few weeks has been rather minimal. It's been a difficult and challenging time for me lately; I've felt very uninspired and unhappy with both my life and myself so I haven't had the motivation for anything really.  One day I hope I will find the courage and the right words to write about my recent experiences. I'm  feeling a little better and I'm definitely trying to be more positive but lets just say I could do with some support right now. I'm ready to be here again; I've missed it.

The weather has been substantially sunnier and warmer lately. I can definitely tell that spring is on its way. I can't wait until I can wear my pretty summer dresses again. I've certainly worn this red Alannah Hill cardigan a lot this winter; it's definitely my most worn item of the season. This is good for my blog because I've wanted to start a series of remix posts for awhile where I show all the different ways I've styled an item.  Ive seen this idea on  a few other blogs and I've always thought it was a cool idea. Once I've accummulated enough photos, I'm sure this will be my first item.
I desperately want to curl my hair (preferably without heat) but I have no idea how to. Does anyone know how to do this (especially relevant to short hair). Please let me know.

Another adorable yet flawlessly glamorous outfit from you.

It's funny, I've been following you for so long (like, three plus years now) so I'm very familiar with the items in your closet. I can totally envision mentally how you match your different items with other items, to create different outfits. But yes, seeing them side by side in an actual post would be awesome! Do it! :)

Kezzie said...

Imogen you always look so ladylike and lovely! Likewise, here!

Er- curling hair- you can get those bendycurler things- you can wash your hair before you go to bed and then put them in your hair and sleep in them and then your hair is curly the next day (maybe put some sort of hold lotion in maybe?)
They look like this: https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=bendy+hair+curlers&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&biw=819&bih=457&wrapid=tlif134548195826510&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=7WwyUNznD8mP0AXeyoDwDA

So sorry you have been feeling so negative. I really hope that you do feel better soon, God bless you lots! It can feel very lonely sometimes when you feel down and you can never put it into words to people, to make them understand, and that feels frustrating, doesn't it. As in these situations, it is hard to be able to say the right thing, but just be able to care and listen (well, the blog equivalent of listening- er- reading?!) You take care of yourself x

I love your girly chic combinations.

Sherin said...

Hope everything starts to feel better for you soon!

I love the look here. The leopard print with the red is a great combination.

About curly hair: I heard/read that if you roll it up and pin it while wet and leave it for a while to dry, it becomes curly? Not sure if this works .

Nice skirt!

I'm very sorry to hear that you've been going through a difficult and challenging time,
and do hope you find more comfort and courage.

As for curling your hair with no heat, the only thing I know of is wearing curlers for an extended period. I'll bet Jade who writes the blog
Make Me Stunning would know. It wouldn't surprise me if she's done a tutorial on it. I mentioned both of you (my cherished commenters)
in the post I just did titled: National Underwear Day Pop Up Event in New York City.

Love the Alannah Hill Cardigan and the Revival Skirt. Your pretty lipstick goes perfectly with the cardigan.
Even though you want desperately to curl your hair, I think your hair looks pretty in these photos and the hair bows you wear are cute.

I hope you cheer up soon and that things get better for you - and that your coming Spring will be wonderful.

Jessica said...

aw im sorry to hear you are going through this, we all have these times in our lives i think and although it is cliche to say it is important to focus on the positive, and anything you don't like you can work on changing and pushing forward! chin up girl!

I hope you start to feel better soon, and that things start falling into place for you. you look gorgeous as per usual.

Natasha said...

I'm sorry to hear you're going through it at the moment Imogen, I hope things get better soon. I'm still trying to track down the letter I sent to you, I cant believe it never reached you. This is a lovely outfit and you look so pretty, if it helps I've been feeling low lately too. xxx

I'm sorry to hear that you've been having a rough time lately. Hopefully you know you have a lot of love and support out here in the blogosphere! I really hope you feel better soon.

As for hair curling without heat, I recently discovered a super awesome/easy way to go about it on The Paper mama's blog - check it out here: http://thepapermama.com/2011/07/hair-tutorial-no-heat-curl-html.html. I've tried it out a few times and its worked BEAUTIFULLY. And I'm terrible at styling my hair.

Loving the printed top!

Helen said...

I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling bad and hope you feel happier soon :)

Regarding hair, I always turn to youtube! I tend to use curling tongs but you could try night time curlers, the soft ones that you can sleep in? Or pin curling, which seems extremely complicated to me but I'm sure it's easy once you've got the knack

Aw, I'm sorry! I'm loving the animal print with the red, you look great!

You have a style I wish I could pull off and I'm always jealous of your cardigans.

I really hope you feel better soon, I know how hard it can be to be unhappy - you feel guilty because you struggle to find joy in anything, yet many would kill for you life. But sweetie don't feel guilty, its OK to be unhappy, sometimes it just cant be helped. You have my support id you need it!

I hope inspiration comes your way soon Imogen. You look lovely in the red cardigan and bow in your hair. The outfit is adorably styled with the flats and necklace. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. xx /Madison

Izzy said...

I hope you feel inspired soon. I was in a similar situation yesterday, where something that happened that day made me feel really depressed for the whole night. But positivity is the most important thing. Changing your attitude is the hardest part but it will make such a huge difference.

you look great in the mix of leopard print with red by the way! I actually have a similar leopard print top from Dangerfield as well haha. it's in grey, but I like it in yellow too! <3


Mica said...

Lovely outfit! I like the leopard print against the red cardi!

Hope everything is going okay for you and you are not too unhappy at the moment!
