In love with a snood...

I am so excited!  I just got a lovely flamingo pink snood from Arthelia's Attic on etsy (her etsy shop with reopen after her holiday at the end of next week).  It is handmade from an early 1940's pattern.  Naomi from Arthelia's Attic also has a blog.

Here I am wearing the snood with my hot pink blouse and navy trousers:


And here's a closer shot:


I love the snood because it took all of 10 minutes to do my hair this way!  The snood has elastic so I didn't even really need a lot of bobby pins to hold it in place (only 1).  The bow on the top is removeable.


It reminds me of this picture from 1944 in the Everyday Fashions of the Forties: As Pictured in Sears Catalogs:
