I'm experimenting with a new, Betty Grable inspired hairstyle. I used a cheapo bun donut thing (snipped and opened out into a sausage) and rolled the very front of my hair around it for the pompadour, then basically pincurled the side-front sections, pinned the sides behind my ears and tied the scarf over the top.
I'm in love with a sky blue and red colour scheme at the moment, and I've been wearing variations on this outfit a lot lately. I added chocolate brown as an accent colour in the dirndl cincher belt and shoes (which you can't see because none of the full length shots came out very well, but they're the same brown sandals I wear a lot).
