What I Wore

Today I had a bridal shower to attend. I was so excited that I would have an occasion to wear my new dress too!! A few days ago, I took some clothes to trade at my favorite vintage shop near my house. They gave me generous store credit and I walked out with this 40's dress for only $20 off my store credit balance, leaving me a ton more to spend. I was looking for a dress to match my new Lana Turner bracelet and this one looked great with it. I also was able to wear my new shoes!

Last night, I set my hair with perm rollers and brushed it out in the morning for that 40's look. I still need some more practice on getting the correct look, so any tips would be welcomed!! I also tried out a new nail polish. I normally wear the red from the Hard as Wraps line that Sally Hanson has or Red Red from Wet and Wild's Wild Shine line. These both have more of a pinkish base. I wanted to try a polish that had more of an orange base to it and found Revlon's Red Hot Tamale to be exactly what I was looking for. I also picked up a new lipstick when I was at the drug store, but was sorely disappointed with it. If anyone has any suggestions on red lipstick that is under $8.00 and it actually red when you put it on and not pinkish, let me know!!

Dress: Mother Fletcher's
Shoes: Estate Sale
Bracelet: eBay, a Lana Turner Estate Piece

Hope you are enjoying the weekend!!

Hi Heidi! I'm having issues with photobucket!! I can't get the right size to appear on my blog and it keeps deleting them. I put up a smaller picture but you can't see as much detail. Thanks for wanting to see it!!

You look great! I love the pattern and it does go great with your bracelet. And how cool that you can find a great one-of-a-kind dress for $20--can't do that anywhere else. Just one more great thing about vintage clothes!
