I bought a vintage 60s dress from http://PicnicSunday.com ! Isn’t it just darling? The dress is slightly big for me around the waist, so I wore a belt. Take a look at the pictures!
PicnicSunday is an online vintage store owned by Wei Ling from Singapore. All vintage garments have been well taken care of by her, and don’t hesitate to ask her any questions! Plus, it will be affordable for many international customers. She mails them with a ribbon and a card as well! (Psst, she gives you a discount code that can be found on the card)
Also, check out http://erlinasvintage.com. Also based in Singapore, prices are slightly higher but around the same range.
Happy vintage shopping!
P.S., ignore my hair in the photos. Came home from school and was too excited so I just tried it on!
So I recently tried a new retro hairstyle! The bandana hairstyle a la Rosie the Riveter!
Here are some pictures of it. You guys can check out my instagra m at wanderschmerz for more photos. Also, I followed a video tutorial made by cherrydollface on YouTube for this hairstyle, so go check her out, okay!
P.S., it would look great on girls with slimmer faces unlike mine ;)
Forties Waves: Veronica Lake Inspired
- Time taken: Approx 2 hours
- Hair Length: Shoulder length or longer*
- Recommended for: Girls with longer hair who prefer fringe. Great for people who love retro hairstyles but are afraid to go all out.
- What You Need: A set of hot rollers (sponge rollers work too, but less effective), round bristle brush, hairspray (optional).
*I recommend that your hair should not be too long like mine (waist-length), else you’ll have lots of trouble setting them in curls!
I’m not sure if this shall be the very first official entry, but here goes!
I tried my hand at the ‘Peek-A-Boo’ that’s been made famous by Veronica Lake.
Here are some photos of my hair style. Unfortunately, I was unable to take photos of the back.
It was quite a pain setting my hair in the rollers especially since I don’t have hot rollers. I’d recommend them as it’s much easier than using sponge rollers and individual bobby pins. Also, I have tons of baby hair that annoys the heck out of me, so you can actually just put some hairspray on your hairline if you have baby hair too.
This video is a really good tutorial, especially for people who don’t have much time everyday to set their hair in rollers for hours!
Enjoy, and tell me what you think of my hair style!
(P.S., I had an eye infection and I was pretty tired, so pardon my haggard appearance!)
Retro Babydoll is still being revamped before its first blog entry!
I’m still trying to get a remote control for my Canon DSLR so it’ll be easier to take pictures of my vintage outfits for you lovelies out there.
