This is actually an old outfit post that's been sitting in draft for the last month!
This outfit was inspired by Betty Grable in "Pin Up Girl". The pompadour front is achieved by rolling the very front of my hair around a bun donut (opened out into a sausage). I then victory-rolled the side-front sections, pinned the sides behind my ears, and added the hat. I've had the hat ages but never worn it because I've never been able to figure out the hairstyle to go with it - it was Betty Grable's red outfit in Pin Up Girl that gave me my lightbulb moment, and inspired this look.
