    Checks! (Cheques!)

    I rarely write checks because I prefer my debit card, although my checks are very cute. They are the old version of winnie the pooh, like the drawings from the old books.

    WHAT did I just do to my hair...

    I tried to dye my platinum blonde hair back to my natural medium blonde color. When I went to Sally's the guy working told me which color to use and actually handed me the bottle. Little did I know that the "N" in 8N meant neutral and since my hair had no color whatsoever, it turned grey...

    Favourite Scents

    I usually wear Lacoste's Lacoste for women. It's fresh and not too heavy. When I dress up I usually wear Il Bacio by Marcella Borghese. Although it's not a vintage type, I think it has a similar smell to some of the classics without the price tag.

    Vintage eyebrow shapes

    Here's a picture from a week ago: Here's one from a few mins ago: In person, the second set of brows look better. The angle is weird in that picture and makes them look really far apart, but they arent. I only pucked on the inside of my brows. I have a few complements in only the last...

    Vintage eyebrow shapes

    I was very inspired by Lauren's recent magazine post to completely shave off my eyebrows and just pencil them, but I chickened out! I do dress more 30s than 40s and I actually like the thin look better on me. Has anyone actually shaved them off? I would love to hear an experience about it.

    Girdles, Corsets, and Underpinnings

    I have very similar measurements at 36-31-43. I just got over my big hip issue. I even thought about starting a little corset training so I could shrink my waist to about a 27 or so. I love the look of a defined waist with large hips. I think we have ideal bodies!

    How DO You Keep Your Curls?

    My hair won't hold a curl if it isn't a wetset. I recommend sponge rollers on damp hair overnight, letting them dry for at least 8 hours. The smaller the amount of hair, the quicker it dries too. Use bobby pins to keep the hair in a particular place, even if you have to use 15 of them. I...

    Looking for *darling* 20s-40s haircut

    It does take quite a bit of gel to hold the wave. I had it done before at a beauty school and I think they used too much. Even for the pincurls the student but in gel for EVERY curl. When I do it at home, I just gel my whole head with a quarter size amount. It sounds like the person you saw...

    Viewing the past through our eyes

    Specialty shops, thanks to super stores. I love specific shops, but many cannot afford to exist anymore.

    Ladies: Is your spouse/S.o. into vintage?

    My boyfriend isn't into vintage as much as I am, but he does wear fedoras almost daily. He always wears skateboarding tshirts and plaid pants. The closest he gets to dressing up is an old suit jacket he wears with a sweatshirt as his winter coat. He likes my vintage-wear and loves to go...

    If you said you looked like one celebrity from the Golden Era...

    I did my hair really curly today and pulled it back with combs from a center part. I did my lipstick in the rosebud mouth style and I looked so much like Jean Harlow, except for the thin eyebrows.
