Then, on top of that, I need the accessories, in particular the hat and hairstyle. I have white stockings and T-strap pumps that will do, as well as vintage (1950s) elbow-length gloves and a modern handbag that sort of looks Edwardian, but I just have no imagination when it comes to trimming hats. My hair, while it's very long, is also thin and fine, and won't hold a curl or wave even if I coat my hair with products and sleep in curlers, and it disappears to nothing when I pin it up. So much for a full, luxurious, Gibson Girl marcel-wave hairstyle!
