Well today is a new and better day so I thought I would share my photos from the weekend. On friday we went to a show. Nothing exciting really but I did take an outfit photo:
I'm wearing my faux 40s dress and vintage wedges. My hair is doing something very weird! I have a hair appointment today because it needs a trim badly!
Saturday was a positively beautiful day so we took the Caddy out and drove around. We went to Boss Vintage to visit with Ron and I finally purchased this book:
You would think I would've bought this book ages ago as its author lives here in Denver, but I kept putting it off. I finally decided to buy it though as I've been struggling with my hair lately. I must say that this book is amazing! I have the previous vintage hair bible 1940s Hairstyles by Daniela Turudich, and it has always been helpful, but Lauren does an amazing job at showing you how to do these styles with modern tools. She also shows you how to do pin curls, finger waves and victory rolls. Plus there are TONS of color photos so its virtually fool proof. I highly suggest buying this book! You can buy it at Vintagehairstyling.com. Also, if you don't already follow her blog you should because its filled with vintage hairstyling tid bits. Its called Bobby Pin Blog.
Ok, back to the weekend.
After that we decided to go to the zoo because we havent gone before and its just a few blocks away from our home.
I finally wore my Rose Marie Reid playsuit. I love it!! My shoes, however, were killing me.
Here I am petting the lion.
And here is Oscar about to go swimming with the flamingos.
