From the 1940s & 1950s

There are so many things that I love about vintage and retro inspired fashion and I could go on for hours. 

Women Dressed Like Ladies

The demure styles of the 40′s and 50′s were classic, ladylike and chic. Maybe it’s my love of contradiction, but contrasting my ballsy ideals with the purity of the past is a combination I adore. From the matching hats and frocks, the crinolines and underpinnings to the dainty shoes and perfectly coiffed victory rolls, the 40s and 50s were sandwiched right between WWII and the women’s liberation, when women tasted freedom and were on the verge of a revolution.
