Today I thought I'd show you something I've had for a while now, It's a 1950's Max Factor compact and its just the sweetest thing!
The compact itself is cream plastic with little grey starbursts on the front.
I'm not sure how popular plastic compacts were but I'd never really come across them before now.
it even still has makeup inside! and its original sponge.
I always like it when you find a piece by a brand that is still in business today!
As I had the morning to myself I had time to set my hair, a luxury at the moment what with all the 5am alarms and corporate uniform.
I tried my hand at Veronica Lake style waves and was pretty pleased with the outcome.
I also tried something else new, a polo neck jumper...
I know they're a classic and fairly tame but I never thought I could pull it off before.
Its so cold in London at the moment that worries of looking like a floating head disappeared with the need for warmth!
I'd be really interested to hear how you other vintage ladies stay cosy as the nights draw in?
i find spring and summer easy with cotton dresses and circle skirts but how do you team vintage glamour with more practical needs?
