Film Noir

19 Sep

Cool weather strolled around Texas for a few days this week with accompanying storms. So I did what any self-respecting vintage nut would do… started watching old thrillers.

So when I got the opportunity, I decided that this would be my next outfit. Film Noir feel… how do you think it came out?

I used Vintage Hairstyling by Lauren Rennells to inspire me in my hair set. The back waved, and the front swept. My conclusion, I love vintage hairstyles and will probably be doing them SIGNIFICANTLY more often.

A few people mentioned that I could wear anything I wanted and get away with it, they could never wear things like that (and while this particular ensemble at church seems to agree with them); I, myself, disagree.

You just have to have confidence. If I decide I am going to wear something, then come hell or high water (the Texan in me), I will wear it with confidence. You cant talk someone out of an outfit if they really like it (no matter how terrible it might look). And let’s be honest, styles have changed… people’s body types have not.

If you are a closet vintage, and you wish you had the courage, here is what I say: Wear it with pride. Wear it with taste. And you just can’t go too far wrong… (although there are some decades we are all probably better off forgetting.)

Living it up vintage, The Vintage Sweetheart.

PS. I have a hard time with cute. There is just something about my demeanor that doesn’t allow me to be completely wholesome. Just saying.

    Not a lot of high water here in Texas. There IS a lot of Hell-ish heat though.
