I need to find some late 40s accessories to wear.

The dress I will be wearing is a yellow floral number, with blue and a red/pink colour to the flowers in places, and it has a large white collar. There is also a wide navy belt for the waist.

I need: shoes, bag and jewellry. And possible gloves and hat?

And all as cheap as possible, as not likely to use again.

Just want it to be cheap really. It is only fancy dress after all, and for one day.

My dress in entirely authntic though - it is a freidn's great grandmothers. There are photos of her wearing it, and in the right year (1948 day we are having). It isn;t very glam, lol!
