Blonde Beauty

So, here are the portraits in the new blonde wig:

One of the things that surprised me about this wig is that, for the first time, I have a wig without bangs (or fringe, as the Brits call them). I've always like the way bangs frame my eyes and face, yet this one seems quite attractive as well.

I'm a bangs kinda girl myself ... and yep ... it's a fringe.

I agree though ... looks great with no bangs at all.

I'm always intrigued by the vocabulary differences between Brits and Americans...especially the ones most people don't know about like "bangs/fringe".

Here's one I'd like some info on: Is everything we Yanks call a "sweater" called a "jumper" over there, or only certain styles?

Andrea said...

Well ... I think a sweater would always be a jumper. But ... if it has short or no sleeves it is a "pullover" ... and if it has buttons it's a cardigan.

I love the complexities of rubbers and condoms, bums and fannies and cigarettes and fags.

A friend was telling me how she confused the hell out of a security guard at a nightclub in the USA when she insisted that in the UK fags are kept in packets and you can buy them from slot machines.

Yeah--we divide sweaters up that way, as well. Wonder how your word "jumper" got applied over here to the combination of skirt and bibbed top that I think you folks call a pinafore.

I can always tell when a movie or TV show allegedly set in Britain was really written by a Yank--it's when they get the easy stuff right (lorry and flat and lift), but miss the less obvious stuff (tin not can, trolley not cart, as examples).
