A Bleg

Ok, I am looking to put together a retro look. Lakewood's Car Kulture show is coming up next month and considering doing the retro girl look. I think I have the make-up figured out. Not yet sure what to do about the hair (a wig perhaps?). But my biggest problem is trying to figure out the clothing part. Where and what. Sort of looking to do the 1940's - 1950's pinup girl look.

I like the following:

I sort of like the skirt, but it is only sort of. Also, not sure what I would pair it with.

I will also be doing photography at the show, so perhaps that need to be taken into consideration.

Suggestions anyone?

A Vintage Look

This past weekend I went to Dragway 42. Yes, it is just what it sounds like, drag racing of older (pre-1976 vintage) cars.

Anyhow, I was intrigued by some of the women there doing the retro look with their clothes and hairstyles. Some of them obviously put in a lot of effort to get the look just right with the proper clothes, make-up, and hairstyles. Anyhow, I found a site that will allow you to duplicate some of the looks with minimal effort.

How to Make Vintage Hairstyles -- powered by

Since my hairstyle is similar to the instructor in this video, I think her tips should work for me and I may just try it for the next vintage car event. Now I just have to find some nice retro clothes.
