80's Does 40's Dress

I wasn't sure about this one. Typically, I stay away from clothes I would have worn the first time around. I knew, to pull this off successfully it would require accessories. Lots and lots of accessories. How'd I do?
 The hat belonged to a neighbor years ago. I was getting married, and showed her my mauve dress. She went to the cupboard, pulled down a hat box, and presented me with the hat she had been married in. I can't remember, but I think she provided the shoes as well. How I ever managed to get to the courthouse and get myself hitched, I'll never know.
 Outfit Particulars:

80's does 40's Byer of California dress .98 cents, Thrift World
50's hat-gift
Taupe gloves-mum's
Assorted bangles-thrifted here and there
Shoes-newish (K-Mart?)

Earrings-Thrift America

As always,

You`re flipping the bird with more conviction these days. I like that in a blogger!
