30s & 40s Obsession and A Tiny Shop Update!

Like I had brought up in my last couple posts, I recently had the pleasure to visit a home with 3 decades of vintage clothing. This outfit is from that home and probably my favorite! 
I love that I can wear a 30s or 40s dress that is slightly too big and it still looks okay. Now that I have my pin curls and rag curls down, I have been more likely to trade my 50s frocks for something a little older. But don't worry, I can never give up the 50s! The other thing you may notice is my lack of red lipstick. I thought this look needs something softer, so I opted for just a little balm on the lips free pf color. It was quite freeing, however a little strange to look in the mirror and not see red lips!

I absolutely LOVE all these on you. And what I love the most is, you know, that you look like you've time-traveled from the 1950s to today, and you look very innocent with the blond hair and, well sweet face. Then the tattoos peek out. I love the effect it has. Seriously, I've seen more creativity on blogs than in Vogue.
Love,
S

God, your house is gorgeous.

I feel I am almost a little curvy for '30s and '40s... same with the late '60s. I dunno... makes me feel a little... frumpy, stocky... Mind you I love them all to death. I almost feel a little uncool sticking to mostly '50s.
