Proper Pincurls and Everything

I appreciate this is essentially the same as another recent outfit post, but I'm going to justify it by claiming it's a demonstration of different versions of the same look.

I did a proper pincurl set (on damp - not wet - hair, and left in overnight), and recreated the pompadour hairstyle (you might be able to tell I'm pretty pleased with this hairstyle!) with a headful of bouncy curls.

I know I'm on a shopping ban, but this sweater was a 99p ebay bargain, and it looks so perfectly 1940s how could I possibly resist? Peach, navy and red is my new new favourite colour combination.

1950s wool skirt, etsy; Sweater, ebay; Shoes, Clarks (via charity shop); Necklace, found in the attic; c1940s (?) celluloid brooch (I LOVE this brooch!), gift from mother; Bangles, various; 80s leather belt, charity shop; Handbag, can't remember - car boot sale maybe?


  1. I LOVE that sweater! And that was an awesome bargain! Love that combo as well-two of my fave colors!! xox


  2. Such a lovely outfit! Your hair looks great!

  3. I can definitely tell you were a very happy camper (and rightfully so) with your beautiful locks, as you're beaming a mile-wide smile here that just adds to the loveliness of this great look.

  4. Wow you look utterly stunning! I would be super pleased with that set too! x

  5. If it's 99p on Ebay it doesn't count as shopping (this rule may be why my wardrobe is bursting!) so go for it!

    GREAT hair - not surprised you're chuffed.

  6. Good lord! I LOVE that sweater!!! It is just amazing!


  7. Wow, the curls turned out great, you styled them perfectly! My hair is shorter at the moment and I pin curl every day, but I usually just set them with a curling iron a pin before I go out because I can't sleep with those darn pins in!

    Love the outfit, the red is amazing!



I'd love to hear your thoughts!
