40's Up-Do Attempt

I just watched a really cute vintage movie...and when that happens I love to dress up. This was an attempt at a 40's hairstyle. I definite; need to work on making it look smoother. It seems like the only way my hair can look good is when its half up and half down and naturally curly, but I determined to master the sleek 40's up-do's!

In case you are wondering, the movie was called, "Andy Hardy's Blonde Trouble." It was one of the MGM studio's movies from the 40's staring Mickey Rooney...and vintage twins! Lee and Lyn Wilde were the blondes that were the trouble. They are absolutely adorable!

I found these shoes at a thrift store, and I think they look a tad vintage.

Please don't mind the mud on my heels!

Full-fashioned back seam stockings of course!

I made chocolate mousse a few hours ago. I am not sure how it turned out because it has to set for 4 to 6 hours, but I am pretty sure it is going to taste wonderful. I made a chocolate cake the other day because I wanted to. Here's proof!

It was very good. :)

Here is a picture of Mickey Rooney and Lee and Lyn Wilde

Aren't they just darling?

  2. What a terrifically lovely, timelessly elegant dress. I've always loved the combination of pale mocha and chic black together in the same garment like that.
