The Snood

Hello fancy fellows ! Today, let's talk about: The Snood ( Resille en français)
That hair accesory was quite famous during WWII.

It has the advantage of keeping the hair out of the face in a beautiful way. You can also dress it up or down.

Internet is full of pattern to make your own snood and you can also find some in Etsy shop or Ebay.
They look like spiderweb and are SO handy to hide your hair if didn't set them or during hot weather.
Here some embelished ones that I've foung in my magasines:

Little dress inspiration

I recently got a lot of inspiration from my vintage "Marie Claire". I mean: look at those cute dresses. There is so much different collar, waist, soulders or sleeves. 
It's quite easy to imagine them with any kind of fabric, buttons belt ring ... Oh, I'm already dreaming !

I'm so crazy about those early forties ones.

That one will look amazing in a stripe fabric and covered buttons.
Have you seen the pockets ?

Thanks to those dresses you will look thinner.

I love those shoulders

Sping time

I can't believe that it's been that long since I posted. I've got myself a second job that is taking me a lot of time.
Well, enought with excuses and lets go to some new stuff around the house.

Fisrt of all, I cut my hair. I did it myself (and you can tell ...) but I pretty surprise of how it turns out.
I now have a some bang and layers.
I re-done my color, set my hair and end up with a nice hairstyle.

Show Boat - 1951

That movie is a remake from a famous musical. And don't think that I can make a better review than the one on "Classic Film and Tv Cafe". I get a lot of inspiration over that blog. 
I just love the song "Only Make Believe" and both scene in wich it's sing are hilarious. Just watch H.Keel face, so funny !
To all Ava's fan, she is incredible is that movie and amazing in that scene: 

 That version is staring : 

Katheryn Grayson and Ava Gardner

Robert Sterling

Howard Keel
