1940'S Housewife.

This week I have been busy figuring out way to style my new locks, for over a year I have either had short hair or dreadlocks, so now I have hair again I don't know what to do with it.
I bought a hair bun yesterday cut it in hair and fashioned into the delightfully name hair rat, to attempt to do so faux 1940's bangs, unfortunately I am still attempting to grow my fringe out and it's not quite long enough to do yet, so I improvised and did a simple side roll. I also curled the end using the Babyliss hair wand and then brushed it out. I don't use any hair spray or harmful products to style it, the wand is that good that the curls say in all day, it's a hair miracle.
The dress I'm wearing here is thrifted vintage from a local charity shop in navy blue with a delicate white pattern, it really nips me in at the waist (where I have lost the most weight) and the length sits just above the knee, perfect. I teamed the dress with Primark leggings and these bright turquoise pumps with gold detail also from Primark, the outcome is this great 1940's look.

    You did so well with the rat! I can't do anything with rats or my hair in general. That sounds odd. Anyway, I love your hair, makeup, and dress! Very pretty :)
