DIY 1950's Style Headband

Recreate the look with Alexandra's 1950's style headband tutorial:

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

So hard to say! I suppose at the moment I am really in love with an orange, floral, 1950's, new look style dress that I found at an Etsy shop called Mable Rose. I wear it every time I get the opportunity!

Who are your style icons?

Definitely Audrey Hepburn and other old movie actresses- I just adore watching movies from the 40's and 50's- it's amazing to see how the clothes move and flow.

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love Dior and Oscar de la Renta- their designs are so romantic and gorgeous!

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Etsy, without question! Where I live, it's so hard to find good vintage pieces. Etsy makes my dreams of a vintage wardrobe come true- it's so practical and easy to use- I can spend hours on there.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I have made some of my clothes before- I mainly try and wing it- sometimes it turns out, sometimes not- I am a lazy seamstress and neglect to use patterns- haha! Though, sewing does come in handy because I often have to take in my clothes.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

I suppose the best advice I have is not to be afraid to wear what you love! We live in a time that allows you to get away with pretty much anything style-wise... any trend, any era- it's fantastic!

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

I recently stumbled across Esme and the Laneway- LOVE it! Her style is so beautifully vintage- it's so inspiring!
