Peggy Carter inspired // 1940's gal

Hi-de-ho, lovelies! (That's 1940's slang for "hello" by the way!)

My favorite movie of all time has got to be Captain America, the First Avenger. It's the World War II era, red lipstick is the trend for the ladies, Adventure + drama, and the fashions are simple + classic. And of course, Chris Evans is like the best actor in the entire world. (I MEAN SERIOUSLY. LOOK HOW ADORABLE THIS GIF IS.) And of course, Peggy Carter is the timeless lady of the film.

So now that I have shorter hair I can finally pull off the Peggy Carter hair-do. ;) Cosplay is such fun, so if you try out her look definitely send me a picture by either posting it on your blog (and commenting the link here!), or sending me a picture to my Facebook page.

Have a lovely day, keep marching!

  2. Abbey, your hair is so, so lovely. It really suits you! I would love to have a short hairstyle, but I feel it doesn't "go" with my face shape. Lol. (I was going to tell you on a past post, but I think I never ended up placing a comment! ;-) )

    1. That's what I thought too, since my face is quite round. But I opted short hair cut that wasn't TOO short (if ya know what I mean) to try to compliment my face shape better. :) Thank you for the lovely comment! ♥

  4. I love it!! I've been pondering whether or not my emotions can handle watching any of Agent Carter the tv show, but I do like her in the Marvel series. :) You are adorable!
