Vintage Finds

Can I first off just say how much fun this is to throw yourself back into a different time period with these vintage styles?   I have so many exciting things to share upcoming.  I'm going to start my giveaway plans tomorrow, so stay tuned!

The dress I am wearing I purchased at a vintage shop.  I'm going to talk all about the shop tomorrow and share pictures.  The dress has a silky type material. I'm very happy with it.  It is from the 1940's.  The shoes I picked up at a thrift shop, Cynthia Rowley.  Bracelet is vintage 1950's floral combination.
I bought a book on vintage hairstyles, now I need to invest in some hot rollers:)  I did however use a few vintage bobby pins to pull back my hair.  Isn't this awesome how they still have the vintage holder?

  2. This is really cute, Joanna! :) Oh, if your going for a hot roller set, I would suggest Revlon Iconic Hairsetter. I've used it a couple times, once on me and once on my sister, it worked pretty well. Of course hot sets never stay in as long as wet sets, but I liked it a lot.

    1. Thank you Sean, I could use all the help I can get!!! I think I should look into the wet sets. Any good recommendations?

    2. Hmm, I usually use sponge rollers and have a review coming up on my blog for a new roller set I got. A lot of people use pin curls, which I'm trying to learn. I think the pin curling takes loads of practice.

  3. Hello there! Thank you so much for popping over to visit my blog, I'm so happy to be returning the visit as I've found a likeminded vintage fan:)). I love old-style beauty product packaging too, sometimes I'm tempted to buy just for the cute box or what have you! I've been curling my hair with hot sticks as they're so much faster that hot rollers, you can get them cheap on eBay - the Vidal Sassoon ones are excellent and Conair are very good too. I'm your new follower:) x
