Yesterday after church, while changing out of my fancier clothes, I decided to play a bit of dress-up if you will. It was all spurred by the impromptu hair do that I did. I wanted to get my hair out of my face so it wouldn't be in the way, and I thought that that was as good as time as any to try to achieve the Betty Grable hair do that she was most famous for in her pin-up shot. It was really simple. I just took bobbie pins and pinned all the hair at the top of my head. I really love this style and now that I know I can achieve it with semi-perfection, I will be doing it a lot more.
So, taking my inspiration from my hair and the numerous early Betty Grable films I have been watching for a class this semester, I sorta tried to channel Betty Grable with this look. Definitely more of an inspiration than a direct look. Anyways, I'm loving how it all came out...especially since I got to wear one of my favorite pairs of vintage summer shoes! They are for sure pin-up style shoes with a 3.5 inch heel and mock snake skin. One of my many eBay finds!
Hope you're having a marvelous Monday!

Pin: Was my Grandma's -- I should have posted a closer picture, it's a heart with an arrow through it with different colored rhinestones. It's my favorite pin.
