Channeling my inner 1950's!

So if you know me at all, you know I LOVE all things retro, especially the 1940's and 1950's fashion! I love the hair, the makeup, the clothing...the simple values of life!
So for church on Sunday, I channeled my inner 50's housewife (minus the skirt and the husband!) for this modern play on retro style.

What I am wearing:
leopard cardi: Target via Goodwill $4.99
ruffle shirt: Target $4.99
jeans: Thrifted $7.99
shoes: Thrifted $3.99
necklace: It's my moms...real pearls! FANCY!!!
headband: Claires, but I am not sure how much it was :(

And for my hair, I just teased up the entire top of my head starting at my bangs back, then smoothed it out with a smoothing brush and twisted in the back. Secure with a clip and bobby pins if needed...then slip on your oh-so-cute headband!
