A Type of Marilyn Housewife
I believed I would share an outfit and a few photos of a barely totally different pin curl set and comb out. This time I left the curls a bit tighter and went for more of a Marilyn Monroe inspired type. I called it a Marilyn Housewife, because clearly my type is much more subdued and fewer va-va-voom for an on a regular basis look, not to say this was how I wore it to church and that is the final place I would want to show any va-voom.
I additionally used this as an opportunity to wear my new favorite earrings! I simply received them within the mail and I really like them to items! They’re a 1940s straw hat with flowers and ribbon. I do know they’re extra of a springy/summery design, but I could not wait that long to wear them, and I assumed the colours form of matched my sweater.
The largest qualm I’ve with sporting them is the considered dropping one someplace. I really feel this manner about lots of my vintage clip ons. Does anybody else have that worry, and if that’s the case, what can I do about it
I additionally wore another one among my quirky vintage brooch assortment. This time it was a vintage banjo pin worn in honor of my dad who has been knowledgeable banjo participant since he was about fifteen. I do not play a banjo, however cannot assist but love the instrument particularly when played by my dad.
I wore what I suppose may very well be thought-about a vintage sweater, as a result of it is about seventeen years previous. I purchased it whereas in highschool, and it was part of one among my first main clothes purchases alone. Let me guarantee you it matches a little bit short hair wedding hair in another way than it did at fourteen, lol. It additionally got here with a sort of hippyish tie belt which I selected to not put on, hence the loops on either aspect of my waist.
It’s superb how vintage this sweater short hair wedding hair appears to be like for a more fashionable piece. Because it was an awesome late 90s cropped sweater, I didn’t even must tuck it in. Just goes to show it pays not to get rid of the whole lot and that yow will discover vintage-like pieces that may work to fill out your wardrobe anyplace.

I like this setting, and so did my husband, however it is bordering on that old lady ball/bubble hairstyle, so I can see it needs to be styled deliberately to not look too oldish. And there’s not too much about Marilyn Monroe that I might/would copy, however she did all the time have great hair.
