1940's pincurled hair
1980's does 1960's dress (Thrifted at Goodwill, $6)
1970's Red velvet platforms (Thrifted at Goodwill, $8)
I had to snag this dress... shoulder pads and all. Like I have said before, I love Dolly/C. Love/Audrey Horne style, and this satin bowed number fit the bill beautifully. Hey! Went to my favorite lesser-known thrift stores, and they had a bunch of "free" bins. Nice! Among other things, I found a 1970's southwest bathroom set, and a cool 70's crocheted wall hanging thing.
These shoes rock. I feel like Ziggy Stardust. And yes, I mean a man in drag.
Just joking, I feel completely girly in this outfit. But hopefully it comes off as ironic as I'm going for :).
Hair! Lats night I pin curled my hair, which takes about 20 minutes. I use those little mini silver clamp clips; don't use bobby pins or you will have creases in all of your curls! Curl the hair around your finger, then curl it toward your head, and clip it. Wrap a scarf around your head like your a 50's housewife, and go to sleep. Then, wake up, take out the clips, and brush out until you reach your desired hair style (about 5 min.). Spray. I would suggest just watching a youtube video on 40's hair- easier seen than said.
Man, when I was little I wanted literally ANYTHING that was patent leather. And I still do :).
This hairstyle really is flattering on anyone, and makes any outfit look like a million bucks! All together, I spent $14 and 30 minutes to buy/put together this whole look. Now that makes my day :)
I will leave you with the Peggy Lee song "Black Coffee" which coupled with Audrey, inspired this outfit.
