Bunny's Perfect Day!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I am so grateful for all of you out there-for your support and friendship. Thank you!! 

Today was what I consider the perfect day! We were supposed to head over to my dad's but my boys have been sick and we didn't want to risk them getting worse. They are getting better though, thank goodness. My dad ordered all of this food-lots of Spanish and American foods for Thanksgiving. So instead of cooking, he brought it over to us and saw his grand babies. I really appreciated that because it allowed my husband and I to continue the deep cleaning of the house I began a week ago, plus begin to finish off our Christmas decorating. This year the children helped out in putting together the tree. We finally had the chance to continue a family tradition started in my family of putting the tree up on Thanksgiving day. They were so excited, it was so nice to see them that happy!

What made this day perfect for me was just being able to be productive yet not rush anything. To be able to get things done I normally don't get to do and also just to be home with my husband and children and be in one another's company-perfection!

I also got the chance to do something I have been wanting to do for a while and that's dress up! I wore this really sweet 1940's rayon dress purchased on Etsy for just $35! I also wore this really beautiful brown hat someone special sent me recently. I love it so much especially because it has to little hair combs on the sides! I set my hair with hot rollers and something magical happened. I think I finally got a 1940's look going for myself.

What do you think? I really believe that vintage hair is like 90% of an authentic vintage look. I have never been good at doing my own hair for various reasons but have been practicing when I can different ways to achieve a 1940's hairstyle. I have an appointment soon for a hair cut, although I have been growing out my hair since last December from a "middy" hair cut I got. I really don't think it was a true middy and I love the length my hair is now-I just need more of a cleaner shape. I think it will further help me master some 40's and 50's hairstyles. 

 I adore rayon! I love how it feels on me and the softness of it all. I felt so good being able to get dressed up today. I could tell I am getting better at my styling because my husband beamed from ear to ear. He loved the look and I am so happy he did. I am so grateful he gets why I love what I am doing. My daughter joined me outside and modeled a little as well. I think we should model together as a mother/daughter team! hehe
This is the hat my friend sent me-isn't it so pretty!!! LOVE!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and for those of you who do not celebrate this holiday, I hope you have had a wonderful week.

  1. Happiest Thanksgiving wishes, dear Bunny! It warms my heart to hear about your wonderful celebration, and that you're feeling glad about how your hair turned out. It certainly does look lovely - much like this whole outfit itself. If I didn't know better, I'd almost say that dress looks more 30s than 40s, but certainly some of the lines and styles of the former carried over into the later, so it may very well be 40s.

    Here's to the start of what will hopefully be an absolutely stellar holiday season for you and your family!

  2. Amazing hair do Bunny! You have managed a perfect 40s look and it's gorgeous. :D So is your dress and hat, a very sweet combo indeed. I'm glad to hear you had a awesome day, and you have certainly inspired me to think about getting our Christmas tree up soon. > u <

  3. You look great, you will get the hang of your hair. You might want to get some layers to lighten it up, so it will curl better. I always have to get the weight off of my hair get's pretty straight.

  4. You look lovely! I think the dress and hat are the perfect combo and give you a very pretty, gentle, vintage look. Glad your unexpected twist to Thanksgiving turned out so well. Hope your family gets 100 percent well!

  5. Lovely, lovely, lovely. You look like you could stroll down the streets of Paris:) The hat goes so well with your outfit perfect color combinations. I like how you pulled back one side of your hair. It certainly gives your hair the retro feel:) You look beautiful:))) Having a bit longer hair will help you if you decide to do up dos. I have problems in this area. Can't wait to see what your stylist does for you:))

  6. How wonderful! So glad you had a perfect day! I love that dress and hat combo.

  7. You look absolutely stunning Bunny and even though we do not celebrate Thanksgiving here I am certainly grateful for people like you who are spreading the vintage love and really helping out those like myself who are new to it all.

  10. What a beautiful outfit and hair-do...your hair does look smashing! Isn't it nice when the hauir fairies bless us with a good hair do day and it just 'works'. The soft pattern in your dress is very dainty, and I like the punch of strong colour in your little hat. I'm glad you had a nice thanksgiving. xx Shauna
