Not had a great deal of time for blogging lately so mu appologize for that. But I did promise to keep up with the Sunday Best posts so here is this weeks!
The lilac is staring to fade from my hair, but I'm still kinda loving the soft lilac/blonde it's turning into now.
Dress: Cocktail shirtwaist dress (preview!)
Accessories: Moon Glow beads and a fab 1960's corsage I picked up from a flea market in Tennessee! The belt is from a UK trip.
Shoes: Can't see em but I swear they are cute! (See em here on my Poupee Girl)Hair: Trying to make an effort to wet set more often, This little do was just a basic pin curl set loosely brushed out.

Curlers are a big faux pas, we all know it, pin curls are something of a faux pas too whilst they are setting, but sometimes a girl just needs a nice wet set, and has things to do!
Today I decided to take a desperate plunge before heading out to the fabric store and post office and Rosied up hair so I could get the job done and still have bouncy curls for tonight and the weekend.
I figured the best way to go was to really sell it as a fashion statement! With a scrubbed face it was all too Nora Batty, but I figured perhaps with a comfy period appropriate day dress and some red lips and eyeliner maybe I could sell it as a bold style choice, and get my work done nice and easy. I mean it worked in the 40's right?
The result... compliments for the ladies at the store! Might not be a look I'd rock if I was going out to lunch with ladies who do that but for a day on the job followed by a glamorous evening, grandma knew best! Sunday Best worthy? Not so much, but it might be a way to get those wet sets setting when we've got things to do.
I'm sure it'll all be worth it when the pin curls come out!
