Hello, It's Hannah here checking in... I'm getting addicted to the forties hair styles I have been trying and now I'm finding it hard to leave the house with out a victory roll or two!
The best bit is using a snood (mine is a brown one from the one and only 'Forties Frocks') to finish the look when I don't have time to roll my hair.
Even when people don't know the story behind my hairstyle, or the era it comes from, I get rave reviews! In the words of my supervisor at work, "Ooh Hannah, I love the big curl!" (He was referring to the large victory roll in my fringe!) You can get one just like mine at Forties Frocks!
In a previous post I told you about the working girls during the second world war and the use of snoods to keep their hair safe at work but still look glamorous! We recreated these in an array of colours and they are stunning!
So... how are we expanding further on this? Hats, that's how! We have three to start with... all in the 'Lucille' style in different variations, and they're available on our Etsy store of course!
We first created the 'Ida' swing pants last September in red and we think they look sensational! They are perfect as day wear with a casual blouse and sandals, or as evening wear with a blouse and some sexy peep-toe shoes, finished off with victory rolls in your hair with a flower or hat. They now come in a range of colours, red, brown, grey, racing green, maroon, navy and black in UK sizes 6 – 22. Prices start from $75. Here are some ready to wear or contact us for a custom version..
We have a new dress style to show you called Marilyn, ooh isn't she gorgeous? This one here is made from two-tone purple polyester in a UK size 16. She's perfect for a swinging 1940s evening! You can buy her from our Etsy shop, or if you want another colour or size, let us know! We'd be happy to oblige! Ciaou for now! xx
So my hard work has paid off and I have two lovely 'Lily' style blouses to show for it! They are both made from the same pattern. One is in grey paisley and the other in a floral pattern and you can see just how different they can look in a different material!
They are available at my Etsy Shop, hope you like them!
Today I've been working hard on two 'Lily' style blouses. One in grey paisley and one in a floral print. I will be posting pictures for the etsy shop and I will post them on the Blog as soon as possible. Also on Tuesday I was very happy that our second 'Bon Voyage' bag sold. It's jetting off to the USA as I speak! One more thing to add. Would all of you vintage fanatics want to come and join Vintage Network Worldwide? "The network for all things vintage and retro". Can't wait to see you there! Ciaou for now xx
I promised you another bag and here it is! Handmade from the same materials as the previously sold 'Bon Voyage' bag but in it's own unique shape. You won't find another like it! Perfect with vintage or faux-vintage fashion, and todays fashion! Don't miss out! Snap it up here!
I finished creating this beautiful 'Bon Voyage' bag a few days ago and I can't believe it sold within two hours of posting on Etsy! Many thanks to 'dylsmum' for your purchase! Due to its swift sale, I will be making some more of these in different variations, so watch this space! They will available on my Etsy Shop!
