50s Housewife (Costume)

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately! I really need to find a job soon. I love my clothes, but I've worn everything a million times and it's getting really old. What I could really use is a good shopping trip!
Anyway, here's my outfit of the day (sort of). Today was decade day, so I decided to be a housewife from the 50s. It's a little out of my nature but I think it turned out quite well. I put it together rather quickly out of clothes I've had forever, so it cost me nothing. I even made the apron out of a dishcloth!

dress: JCPenney (I got this probably 3 or 4 years ago) / cardigan: Forever21 (Got this 3 years ago) / thick tights: F21 (which are great quality by the way) / black oxford heels, bought 3+ years ago because I'd drawn ones exactly like them before
