Final touches to my 1940s outfit…


Today I bought the final touches for my 1940’s outfit. I bought an original 1940’s marcasite brooch for the same price as a modern reproduction (£5), a vintage style pearl necklace and some little pearl earrings.

Tonight my daughter is going to tidy and thin my eyebrows and tomorrow am going to be practising my make-up and hair-do!

I have daring bright red lipstick and nail polish too!

Am laughing quietly at how excited I am getting about getting dressed up (seeing as I live in trousers, baggy tops and trainers) and am NOT going to let that fact of my large size and too tight dress stop this happening.

  1. Awesome! Have fun and rock that dress. I know it’s too late for this event, but have you thought about hiring a seamstress to make/alter clothes for you? I once let a friend use my dining room as a sewing space in exchange for free alterations and handmade dresses(I’m very petite and store bought petite clothing is far too mumsy for me)
