For Valentines Day, Joe and I aren’t able to do much. He’ll have to work, per usual, so we were planning to just hangout at home and watch movies, maybe listen to a few records. So, we decided to celebrate early, since our plans are so lax. So, being a creative (and slightly crazy) person, I dressed up in nearly all Forever 21 clothes, attempted a ’40s faux bang and convinced Joe to take some vintage-y photos of me for kicks.
This was the inspiration board I created to get ready for the pics:
The “joe” tattoo is fake. Don’t worry mom! I added it in after 🙂 It’s just to symbolize that Joe has my heart.
(Faked some wallpaper over the blinds…)
Those were all edited. Here are some others, unedited, including a very curious Ruckus.
(I have no idea what she’s doing, or what I’m doing, for that matter. I’m holding the cake topper from my wedding, thats about all I know!)
The ’40s faux bangs were seriously the EASIEST thing I have ever done to my hair. They took about three minutes to do, with NO hairspray. None. There is actually no hairspray whatsoever in my hair in these photos. I’m not kidding. It’s that easy! I might need to do a DIY post, if any of you want to try!
