Snoodie Little Cutie
I recently had the opportunity to model two more of the wonderful snoods made by Naomi of Arthelia's Attic, this time in rich chocolate and bright turquoise. Naomi's classic snood style, trimmed with a removable grosgrain bow, is about the cutest, simplest way to dress up your 'do in flawless 1940s style! I wear her snoods on a regular basis, and loved coming up with outfits to showcase these two! The brown is the perfect shade for fall, but as you can see, it looks equally at home paired with a summery tropical style: A Hawaiian print linen dress made from an early 40s pattern by Vee Vintage, brown and white 40s platforms, and bamboo and Bakelite jewelry. The turquoise is definitely fiesta ready--here I paired it with a soft pink linen 40s dress and cream linen heels--but it also looks smashing with warm autumn shades as well (especially chocolate brown). Both are must-have colors for any season, and she offers the same style in a number of other fetching colors as well--you're guaranteed to find a match for every outfit in your closet. If you haven't shopped Arthelia's Attic yet, what are you waiting for?
