Tales of a shoe hoarder, Episode Nine~

These boots are made for walkin'!



Cheap faux suede slouch boots. I don't remember where I bought them, probably Walmart or Payless. Very comfy!


I like to wear them with my hippy/bellydancer/gypsy outfit. LOL! Most of my *ensembles* are very cheap. I usually only shop clearance racks. Each peice probably cost $5 or less, including the earrings. I definitely don't like to pay over $10 for anything. This skirt is just TOO much fun. I got it at Rue 21.



And such an outfit must be finished off with the proper hippy/bellydancer/gypsy hairdo...



(Especially if one is a hairstylist like moi!)



This is a very easy do, and I did this one quite hastily. It's sloppy and I didn't get it even in the back but oh well. Three minutes and I'm out the door...

Starting in front, grab a section of hair near the temple. Take a section just underneath it, and twist it over the top of the first section. As you go down, add hair to the bottom section before twisting over top. For this do, I stop at the ears, and keep twisting the loose strands to form a rope. I secure one finished side with a tiny clip to my scalp(otherwise it will come unwound). After twisting other side I bring both tails together and tie them with an elastic. I then flip the tail all the way over, towards my head.
Great for Renaissance Fairs! Here I twisted all the way down the sides, then secured both sides together with an elastic at the nape; made a bun and pinned.
