A total Bettie

polka dot cardigan

Anyone who grew up watching Clueless knows that calling someone "a Betty" is very high praise indeed. But since I draw a lot of inspiration (including my bangs) from a certain icon who spelled her name with an "-ie," I think I might rather be called "a Bettie" instead. I'd like to think this adorable Bettie Page brooch from Baccurelli looks a little like me (even though I don't resemble the real Bettie very much), and after receiving it as a Christmas gift from my mom, I'm glad I finally got a chance to wear it!

I think it's probably safe to say that winter is over (fingers crossed!), but it's still a bit too chilly most days to go without a jacket – or, at the very least, a cute cardigan! I found this one on sale at Dangerfield and love so much about it. (It's no longer available, but they have tons of other cute cardis.) Since I'm so into separates lately, I decided to turn my black Jenny dress from Pinup Girl Clothing into a skirt by adding a wide belt, which hides any extra fabric from the sweater. Neither of these pieces is ultra-flashy, but that's why they've become versatile staples in my wardrobe. I'll always have a large space dedicated to statement pieces, but it feels nice to dress a bit more simply sometimes!

  1. So cute! I love the detailing of the sweater, and the brooch is lovely!

  2. Your pin does look like you, bangs and all! Sometimes I wish I had the courage to get bettie bangs, but I'm far too lazy to maintain them. They look wonderful on you!


  3. That brooch does look very much like you!! I always look at your perfect fringe in awe. My hair is always so stuffy, yours is a feat of wonder! The cardigan is really nice!!!x

  5. I love the color of this sweater!! It's a bit like raspberry, no? And yes, that brooch looks like you - so cute!

    It may be spring but are you getting any snow on Sunday/Monday!? We are in the Boston area. It's like Mother Nature wants 1 last laugh... sigh.

  6. So cute! The brooch does totally look like you! <3

  8. Fabulous outfit! I came of age in the 90s and this post's title totally made me beam. :)

  9. This outfit is too cute! And the brooch! It's perfection!

    You're the third person I know to buy these flats off Amazon. The other two gals I know talk about how incredibly comfy they are. And I keep meaning to buy a pair, but then Re-Mix and Miss L Fire shoes keep cropping up!
