I can't tell you all how good it feels to be able to do vintage hairstyles again! I went for some Betty Grable-ish poodle on top for this windy day and used quite the cloud of hairspray in hope it would stay tame for at least a little while.
I built this outfit around wanting to wear my newly made kitschy holiday brooch, and I chose similar colors to do so. I had bought this thin cropped sweater from Forever 21 early in the fall and somehow managed not to wear it yet, you all may remember the orange version which I wore in this post. Unfortunately this grey version is a bit sheer, layering a camisole underneath provided a bit more warmth at least! My thick wool skirt also helped keep the chilly wind at bay, I'd love to make another in black to wear during these snowier months. I finished the look by adding bright red accessories like my carved celluloid earrings and red suede vintage belt. I wish it were easier to find nice suede belts these days, a nice width (thinner than this red one, around an 1" wide) and with self covered buckles. I have a perfect black suede belt from the 80's and I'll be so bummed when it finally wears out!
Tonight's the big night, I'll be going to see The Force Awakens with my brother and I couldn't be more excited! It was so good of Disney and JJ Abrams to make fans an early Christmas present :)
