It is Kristen posting today. Katherine and I have been talking about taking her little blog to a whole new level. As you know I own and operate Kris’s Vintage Clothing shop on Etsy, many times I come across vintage pieces that I can not get a few small stains out of and they make the dress unwearable in public. Katherine and I have decided that instead of letting these still wearable pieces sit around and catch dust, we are going to sell them at a very discounted price for your Dress Up Boxes.
These pieces will be available on this blog and on my Instagram profile only. Eventually I may open a second Etsy shop just for this purpose.
I hope you enjoy our newest endeavor.
We haven’t posted anything in a while due to life getting in the way, however we are back and ready to take on some new outfits and adding a few hair styles too.
My hair is finally long enough to do a few simple hair styles with. Mom recently has started using this particular hair style on herself almost daily because it is easy to do, looks great and keeps your hair out of your face. She used a tutorial by By Gum, By Golly Blog that gives the best description and pictures as Mom is a visual and kinetic learning.
As we didn’t have time, Mom just did a small hair bump instead of a small victory roll in the front and pinned it down with 2 bobby pins. She has found using cotton scarfs or bandanna’s work the best in our hair as it is very fine and soft. We also did curl my hair because it is only just now shoulder length and again we were pressed from time this morning. Mom will braid her hair while it is wet and let it dry which will give her hair some body as she can’t curl her hair to save her life.
It isn’t perfect but the look was achieved in under 7 minutes.
Mom spritzed a little bit of hairspray on the back to keep the fly-aways at a minimum.
I found this hair style to be very comfortable to wear while we ran our errands and it kept my head warm as it is only a balmy 20 degree Fahrenheit out.
