1940s tuesday

IMG_4658rt

My weekend found me some more awesome op shop goodies – I really have been so lucky lately. I found this 1940s unit (can someone tell me exactly what it is?) at one down the road, and before I could say I wanted it, a third of the already low price was knocked off! I certainly wasn't haggling, but there you go! It just meant I said "I'll take it!" with an even bigger smile on my face.

Today I got to wear a 1940s dress I bought from etsy last summer. It took so long to get here, summer was over by the time it arrived. It clearly took the scenic route, and I hope it enjoyed seeing the world as much as I enjoy wearing it now.

love the unit, can't we see the whole of it?

i have a dress that looks like that, but it's shorter and the buttons are on the front. but otherwhise it's the same color and fabric. But it's new and not vintage

Roxanne Rosensteel: thank you very much!

Betty Lou: I'll try, the dining table is n the way right now... and it's a classic summer dress, amazing how some things just always look good for decades and decades!

FrivolousFlapper: thank you!

Kelley Anne: thanks :)

Sal: thank you. I really missed being dark.

Moni: it was a lucky find... and thanks! I like it too. The blonde was just a fling!

SOFT: I pin curl dry hair, spraying it with a mix of water and a defining cream (that's what the bottle says) till damp, and then leave overnight. Really easy. But products – yes! The cream smells nice and is soft, not crispy.

Q's Daydream: thanks very much!

heleen: thank you!

milk: thanks! It is love for me :)

Bucca: thank you! I think I prefer the dark :) which surprised me..!

Eyeliah: blonde was fun for a bit, but then... every ten days... ten days!!! Little fling for me; dark hair is forever :)

Andi B. Goode: aw thanks so much!
