After a Fashion: The Royal Thirties

Last Friday…

After watching “Water for Elephants” and “The Royal Wedding”, both within a twenty-four hour period, I was completely enthralled with two things.

The dramatic red lipped, cropped bob early-1930’s look.


Those dramatic hair-dresses, accessories, hats, thingy’s that all of London had perched on their heads.

So I had to imitate/incorporate both when I got dressed Friday morning last week. (I’m behind a week on blogging. It’s been one of those weeks.)

I wore purple because that is a Royal color in my mind.

Royal 040


I found my most dramatic headband.

Royal 025

(this is my “I do declare!” pose)


I transformed my hair into a messy bob-like style (in less then 5 minutes, just twist, tuck and pin.)

I donned red lipstick.

And dark eye shadow.

It was so much fun! So Sassy Classy!! Plus my husband ADORED it ;)

We can all have our princess moments by having our personal fun, dress up, make up time, and then feeling fabulous as we walk through the grocery store.
