Yeah, yeah… I know, the Chanel Fall 2011 ad campaign has been out for a while, but hey- inspiration doesn’t come on command (usually). And while it was the quirky-cat images of our darling Freja which drew the most attention, for me it was the image of her in a darling silver wig and fluorescent brows which did it for me. There is a rather simple explanation for this: I’ve been pining away for grey locks (or silver, if you prefer some shine in it) for a few months now.

Would I actually succumb to this trend? Oh probably not (I don’t think I have the diligence required to dye my hair just yet)… but a few months back (remember?) I got myself a pretty damn cool wig (it even managed to cause some shock amongst my acquaintances!)
