Last weekend we had a simply wonderful 40s-50s themed dance! Part one will be about our retro costumes, and part two will be the actual pictures from the dance.
The dance didn't start until 5:30, but we girls started getting ready at 1pm! We barely got done in time - in fact, I was so rushed that I forgot my earrings. lol. But - our hairstyles turned out nicely thanks to the flax seed lotion and lots of hairspray and bobby pins! :^)
The less-than-glamourous trio with their pin curls up before bedtime. (but it will be worth it!)
Aspen's lovely pin curls
My pin curls...I cut my hair last week so they really made my hair seem short. yikes!
Her hair was parted on the side a combed back into a slight poof. All the curls where then gathered up and pinned on top, and decorated with paper roses.
Carolina wore a blouse made from a vintage 40s pattern, and her pink circle skirt I made last year with a black velvet belt, white tights, and black leather slippers.
Her curls were simply gathered back into two clips.
The guys trying to figure out how to tie a tye....
Laredo did a German military outfit and Cim did American AF. Here they are with two other brothers who also did the same. Don't they look handsome?
You can read more about my outfit and hairstyle here.
Mom and Dad. Mom wore a green vintage 50s dress, accented with a rhinestone pin, and yellow leather heels. Dad did a 50s cowboy look.
the whole family!
Stockton did a semi-casual military look with a tea-dyed shirt, khaki pants and a black tye and military insignia.
...up next - the dance!
