Music Playlist Challenge: "You Make Me Feel so Young" - Frank Sinatra

"You Make me Feel so Young" by Frank Sinatra was written by Josef Myrow in 1946 and very was popular, not to mention Sinatra's singing career began in the 40s.

So I went with forties inspiration, naturally. I'm kind of madly in love with that look right now, it's like a much lower maintenance version of the 50s and I love it. 

I never considered putting a flirty floral dress under a work jacket and THEN a belt all over it, but it's a fabulously feminine look and I will most certainly do it more often in the future then.

For makeup I used brown and gold eyeshadow with dark dark red lips (even decent lipstick never stays on my lips longer than a minute, sheesh), I did do something different with my hair today: I curled it with one of those larger barrel curling irons. I didn't think it did anything but this picture showed otherwise.

With the overcast and high shutter speed with some of my pictures, they practically came out designed for a vintage picture, see for yourself here:
