Meanwhile, perhaps in shadow of the forthcoming exams, I've been wearing more utilitarian clothing lately and forgoing makeup in favour of a snazzy hat (which hopefully distracts from my frustrating complexion... *sigh* blame it on the stress)! So, here's my forties inspired outfit for university yesterday.
Sorry, the photos aren't great today!
Dress - 1940's girl scout uniform
Brooch - made of a shoe clip from Vinnies and a swallow pin from Hilary
Shoes - Vinnies
Belt - Sportsgirl
Hat - 1940's from etsy
Do you like my invention? The green pom-pom is a shoe clip from Vinnies, and the swallow was a gift from Hilary!
Boring ponytail spiced up with a hat!
Me, sans makeup.
I also found this song and thought the lyrics were so funny! It's called "I'm riding for a fall" and starts at 2:40. (As a preview, some of the best lyrics are "I know she's a dangerous critter, but I can't quit her!" and "I know people died of her cooking, but Oh, she's so good looking!")
