I dubbed myself the Happy Housewife, while my husband was essentially Don Draper. This wasn't one of my most cost-effective getups. The dress was from an antique mall and I can't remember exactly how much it cost. Maybe $30? $35? At least that's all I bought: the apron was a wedding gift from my sister, those are my actual wedding shoes, the brooch I already had, and the earrings I made.
I also did my own hair:
I tried to approximate a beehive at first, but that crashed and burned, so I ended up with a modified French twist. I probably should've gotten a BumpIt for extra zing, but those commercials annoy the crap out of me and I just couldn't commit.So there you are. Now I can move on to other posts without feeling like I'm forgetting to do something! Ah, freedom...
