 1940s pig tail victory rolls v for victory brooch and pendleton 49er

The weather this weekend has been so beautiful in St Louis. I happily opened all of the windows and tried to get as much outdoor time as possible. On Saturday, we decorated for Halloween and played with the kids in the back yard while we did the end of year weed pulling and trimming.

I wore blue  Pendleton jacket with a new V for Victory brooch. I made some of these for the shop but I decided to change them up a bit and embroider "Victory" along the little banner. The design is based on an original war era bakelite V for Victory brooch but I love the make do and mend look of the felt. They're available in my shop, Wacky Tuna Vintage

The jeans are thrifted from Venezia by Lane Bryant. They're straight leg and long enough for a deep cuff, similar to the Gloria Vanderbilt jeans but I think I like a GV's a little better. Still not bad and they have a decent high waist, very comfortable.

I also tried a new hair style today, totally by accident. My hair was a mess from a heavily teased beehive the day before so I pinned some curls and rolls here and there, pulled it into pigtails and added some of my handmade hair bows in cute repro feedsack prints. Stay tuned tomorrow for a tutorial on this easy style

  1. The entire look is adorable, but I especially love your hair--what a great way to extend a set, especially since I work evenings in a theatre.

  8. My word, this look is so super cute! Your hair is perfect, and works so well with the rest of your outfit ~ I so want to replicate this look, though I know I could never get my hair looking so cute! And it'll have to wait until next autumn now. The bummer of being south of the equator when everyone else is north! ♡

  9. Yep, seriously love this outfit! I'm always worried to try out pigtails. I'm nervous it will make me look far too young, but I think a Pendleton type garment could help sophisticate the outfit a bit to balance that out. I'll have to ponder a way to do it, because this is just too cute!

  16. What a fantastic outfit... you look so comfy and seasonal! And I do love that hairdo... I'll have to see if I can coerce my rather poorly behaved leftover curls to do something similar today.

  18. This really is a WONDERFUL look!

    I have just discovered your blog today (I'm not sure how...) and I love it! It's wonderfully appealing. I just love vintage stuff and you have a great knack for pulling it all together. The photographs are to die for along with the topics you choose. Great content and visually exciting. I WILL be back!
