"You Look Like Something Out of the Late 1940s."

Monday, February 23, 2015

So the couple hours this past week I took out of my life to watch something other than Jane Austen movies I spent watching The Bletchley Circle, Downton Abbey, and Grantchester. The one thing these shows have in common are the loveliness of the women and their clothes. The hair, the dresses, the sweater/skirt combos, the red nail polish. As I mentioned yesterday, I also spent some time Googling "1940s-inspired hairstyles" and bought myself some red polish. I also picked out a fun skirt/sweater combo to wear to school today. I mean honestly, what can I say? I really just love old-fashioned things. Also, I wasn't mentally ready to re-enter this decade (century).

So I trotted myself to school this morning, decked out in my sweater and skirt and hair and nail polish, and I have to say it was a mighty fine way to start back to work after the week off. The result?

One of my students comes to class and says to me, "Miss Lafferre, this might sound really weird, but  you look like something out of the late 1940s today."

I kid you not!


I live alone and have not mastered the art of the selfie, but this is what I wore today!
