Pastel Plaid


I have added yet another Swirl to my ever growing collection. I swear these dresses are addicting and I can see why so many vintage gals love them so. I loved the color scheme and the high collar on this one -- definitely different than most of the Swirls out there. I paired it with some pink sandals I got an estate sale last summer. My hair inspiration came from Lizabeth Scott. I adore her 40s hair and it is so easy to recreate not to mention a great style for girls with bangs, since you need to pin back one side.

I was certainly the most dressed up gal at the post office today. Not that I minded one bit! :)

Ooh, what a gorgeous Swirl, I love the plaid. I still do not have a Swirl, I must hurry before every other vintage gal buys them haha! And your hair is looking very lovely.
