Bettie Page had Style!

Thought I would take a few minutes out of my ETD sale shopping and show off this little 1940's Bettie Page look.

This bold red white and blue dress has some beautiful hand drawn details! Check out the small blue bow at the neck - it gives it such a sweet innocent look and the red buttons are a stand out! I must admit the slim fitted waist is flawless (I do have a fondness for system skirts). The colors are fun, bold and will make you stand out in a crowd! This dress is a keeper.

I did go with a Bettie Page hair (bangs which are trim and stand out).

Hi! I love the dress but didn't see an attribution/SLURL at the end of the blog? Could you share where you found it?
